750ml bottle. Ruby red with a foamy pinkish head. Slight haze. Flavors are fresh berries (raspberries, cherry, cranberries), brown sugar, oak and balsamic vinegar with spicy and vinous notes. Good sourness and tartness. Medium body, soft carbonation, smooth texture. Beautiful.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2015 Pours a cloudy copper from the bottle with bubbly off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of deep fruity must, cherries, raspberries, dark fruit, then big lactic sour tannic wood. Taste is a little more tame, but nice sour cherry and raspberry over tannic wood and nice sweet maltiness. Wow, one of the best rodenbach beers I?ve had to date.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an average frothy off-white head that mostly diminishes. Body is hazy red.
Aroma contains mostly fruits (cherry, raspberry, cranberry), a bit of oak, some lime, flowers, leather and hay.
Flavor gives a delicate mix of sweet, sour, tart and dryness that keep alternating.
Body is light to medium with creamy texture and quite soft carbonation.
This beer is full of fruits in the right combination. I never had anything like this before.

Looks.. Murky dark red, sml head.
Smells..all the berries of the rosso yet dulled by more oak, some booze.
Tastes..cranberries and the tartness of the cherry with loads of oak, some booze soaked fruit and then healthy raspberry tart burst, lingering dry berry finish

750 mL. bb 13-05-17. Body is a misty, reddish copper and supports a thin spit of silky bubbles. Aroma is sweet and tart raspberries in cream, with dashes of vinegar and cranberry. Front flavors of raspberry and cream turn to a mild sour with some dry cranberry-apple notes in the middle. Oak comes in on the finish and lingers. Near-medium body has a high carbonation that flares up annoyingly at times. Not as sour as I was expecting, but it’s plenty for me. Nice one, but seems like the raspberry and oak dominate a bit much, and I’m usually a big fan of both.

25-12-2014, schenkt mooi rood/bruin met schuimige kraag. Aroma van de vele fruiten, hout (eiken), een vele complexe fruitzuren,. Smaken zijn redelijk zoetig, redelijk complexe fruitzuren, licht bittertje, de hout / tannine tonen komen later, medium body, glad van textuur, lage co2, en lange zuur/zoetige/fruitige afdronk. Héérlijk bier, dit is precies mijn stijl..... had om nog wat hoger te kunnen scoren niet iets voller gemogen, maar al met al is het erg lekker !

Red brown color, opaque. Cherries in the nose and taste. Mouth puckering sourness comes on quickly. Leaves a dry Pez-like fruity flavor.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours out a somewhat reddish cider color with a small tan head. Aroma is of sweet/tart cherries, raspberry, oak, some light tart funky notes and some cranberry. Lots of sweet/tart fruits up front. Taste is complex. Lots of fruit going on, sour cherries, raspberry, cranberry, oak, light vinegar, some mild funky notes. All the fruits play well together and not one particular one outshines the other. Very well done not over the top sour hut not over the top sweet.
