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.

750mL bottle for NYE. Poured a murky mahogany with ring of head. Acidic, tart fruity notes of sour cherry, raspberry, grape, and cranberry all present. Slight vinegar. Great stuff, probably not worth the price tag.

Bottle with my missy. Pours amber red with a tiny white head. Aroma of Cherry and cranberries with off-notes of Brett. In mouth aroma of oak and tannins also comes thru in the end. The flavours starts sweet but quickly turns sour to finish dry as cranberries. Fizzy carbonation. Elegant and enjoyable.
