The brewer allow the beer to macerate with fresh cherries, raspberries and cranberries. After this maceration in oak, the beer re-ferments in the bottle. The result is RODENBACH Caractère Rouge, an exceptional RODENBACH with fruit maceration and a 7% alcohol volume. The brew is more than unique and extremely exclusive, as only 900 75-cl bottles were produced. Geunes serves this wilful beer as part of his other unique range of beer varieties in his restaurant, ’t Zilte, at the Antwerp MAS museum.

3/13/16. 750mL bottle from World of Beer - Brandon. Thank Jeebus for take home prices. Red pour with a small pink head that sizzles away. Complex aroma, mixed berries, some red Kool-Aid, vinegar, sweetness. Surprisingly sweet flavor, a little disappointed, red Kool-Aid, mild tartness. I could really use more sour and more flavor in general. Not bad, but definitely disappointed.

A7vermelhada, espuma de pouca formação e persistência (estava vencida a 1 mês) . Aroma de vinho quente, maçã, cereja, frutas vermelhas, muito complexa. Paladar de leve acidez e dulçor. Corpo leve e média carbonatação. Aftertaste de uvas escuras, maça vermelha, framboesa, azedo persistente mas equilibrado . Deliciosa!

brianza_ale (203) - ITALY - FEB 25, 2016
75cl limited bottle. Pours a moderate but durable head, very light beige; orange bronzed to ruby color. The aroma is supreme, and probably its best feauture: smells every sort of type of red/blue berry, ripe fruits, with an incredible bretty and very light sweet balsamic character, wooden and cherry notes. Tastes like a really refined flanders brown, but much more nobile and complex, fruity, fresh raspberries, incredibly balanced, the brett and sour are mixed so well all together. Medium bodied, carbonation it’s there but quite subtle, really long and complex aftertaste. The smoothes brown sour I’ve ever tasted, I’m really not a fan this type of sours but this one deserves it, excellent one
