4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Flaska från SB. Rödrosa vätska med doft av smultron, tranbär, hallon, körsbär, hallonbåtar. Försiktig syra, mycket elegant och lätt, fruktig och bärig, lätt fatkaraktär. Otroligt god. Tänker på Hanssens Oudbeitje som närmaste referens i elegans och finstämd bärighet. En upplevelse.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Utobeer Borough Market. Holy cow this is the promised land. Massive cough sweet aromas, fizz jumping around, cherry, berry. Then bang the mouthfeel and taste just explode in the mouth. Very refreshing cold, as zingy on the palate as a 15 year old virgin, with a whoop of tartness and coldness and fruitiness. Not a massive fan of fruitier beers, but this is just so so good.

Cherries, raspberries, and a slight sour lambic-ish note. A really good beer!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared by Ryan -- thanks! Aroma of cherry, raspberry, and more cherry. Fragrant, perfumey fruit. Beautiful ruby red, clear, no meaningful head. Cough syrup slick, lots of sweetness with a nice tart "finish", followed by more syrupy sweetness after the tartness subsides, but it works. It works great. Medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation. Really nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared with Brandon at his 70’s style chapel hill home. Pours a
lightly sparkly plum reddish pink with a steady fizzy white head and remaining lace. Nose is heavily fruity upfront, followed by some more tart red fruit skins. Really nice and well balanced fruity tart flavor, cranberries are evident along with cherry and raspberry. One of my favorite rodenbachs since I had Alexander!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Thanks Patrick. Sour tart sweet. Little of everything. Best thing is it's not super tart like some sours. Mellow for its class. Has a hint of cherry cough drop smell. Nicely done.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
From 0.75L bottle.
Pours redfish with light pink head. Cherry/raspberry aroma. Sweet-tart flavor. May be fine for candy, but not my cup of tea for beer.
Low rating due to style, not execution.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Fruitbomb. Raspberries and cherries are prominent. Hint of strawberries. Sour and dry with a full and red fruitiness as backbone. Wood noticeable but not at all prominent. Excelent beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pinkish-red pour. Aroma is a nice mix of the fruit used with sour cranberry/raspberry prominant early that trails off to sweet, floral cherry, vanilla, and light oak. Flavor follows suit with a nice solid sour cranberry and raspberry that finishe’s with gentle cherry and vanilla. Moderate sour with some "life" to it. Fairly straight-forward with some sweeter aspects. Refreshing and not syrupy. Very nice overall, but expensive.
