Bottled shared with grogandk. Thanks brah! Pours a cloudy dark brown red. Thin almost clear white shortlasting head. Aromas of raspberry (!), slight mint, grass, some yeast. Taste is very raspberry aswell, very nice fruity sweetness, quite surprised this isn't more sour. Some nice fruity tartness in the end. Grass, yeast, also has quite a minty note to it aswell. Tart dry ending. Pretty high carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
75cl bottle courtesy of tderoeck, merci maat! shared@BE-USA game. Pours gorgeously deep pink-red, juicy nose of raspberry and cranberry more than cherry, taste is heavy on the juiciness as well, more so than any regular Rodenbach: red berry peel, some cherry pit and candy-like raspberry & cranberry fruitiness. Not a trace of ABV or any beeriness at all, for that matter. Less sweet-and-sour balsamic than Rodenbach Grand Cru, almost no oak barrel character which I actually did miss after a 2nd serving - but marvelously balanced as macerated red berry juice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 75cL. Home. A dark garnett beer with ruby hues. Medium white head. Thin bubbles. Poor persistence. Fruity aroma (cheery, raspberry), wood, acid. Light to medium body, medium silky texture, soft carbonation, lasting dry sour finish. Refreshing. Overall, great Rodenbach : fruity woody aroma, powerful sourness, silky texture...

Ruby red with little foam, almost like cranberry juice. Reminds me a lot of the retired Alexander. Lots of cherries, raspberries, only a hint of cranberries. Nice acidity and a great finish with sour and fruity sweet notes.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Batch 2, enjoyed 4 ways at 45F in stemware.
A - Huge cork pop, no gush, Blood red pour, 1 finger head fizzes out to a small head.
S - The nose is fantastic. Gorgeous cherry dominates followed by a small raspberry acidity and that classic oaky rodenhbach nose
T - Very smooth, loads of fruit! Just a huge explosion of cherry and raspberry. cranberry seems like an after-note, fruit salad in a glass. Acidic and tart, not overpowering sour, very easy to drink
M - Juicy, Nice mouthfeel carbonation on a swish.
O - This is a fantastic beer! I have a batch 1 as well and can’t wait to hold that for a very long time.
