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.

Wood, cherry, raspberry, cider vinegar, beautiful amber/reddish colour with a small and not persistant white/beige head, medium body and high carbonation, taste is an amazing sensation: sweet and sour, cherry and raspberry than cider vinegar again, dry finish, very refreshing, taste of Rodenbach is not compromised by the fruits that donated to this beer a delicious sweetness...like a whisper, like a gift for a king, like a masterpiece, i can not forget it.

emacgee (4613) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2016
Pours a deep ruddy red with a thin beige head. Lots of pie cherry in the nose with sour and tannic cranberry, cherry pit and almond, and a touch of phenolic acidity. Bright berry notes in the flavor with cherry predominant and cranberry on the back. Nice acidity/tartness upfront with a touch of marker/phenolic. Medium light bodied and dry.
