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.

Flaske, købt i Barley Wine. Sjov farve, et sted mellem rav og lyserød. Intet skum, men livlig karbonering. Dufter intenst af blr, ikke mindst hindbær. Masser af bærsødme, og overraskende lav syrlighed til at tackle sødme. Tutti frutti-noter. Blødt træ. Meget nem at drikke. Ikke så kompleks - jeg foretrækker Rodenbach Grand Cru any day.

75cl bottle from Discount Liquor, split with my wife. Pours a clear, reddish brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma is fruity, sour cherry, oak, vanilla. Medium on the palate with soft, creamy carbonation. Flavor is lightly sour, oak, vanilla, some cherry, cranberry, with a nice tart finish. Very nice.

25.4 oz bottle, certainly not batch 1. Clear crimson with edgy white froth. Nose is raspberry, toffee and cherry preserves. Juicy, sticky medium body with a sour tang. Taste is cranberry, sour cherry and vanilla with the raspberry adding sweetness.

Jesterdeal (1808) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle shared with the dudes. Aroma is tart cranberry, sour cherry, oak, and a hint of vinegar. Pours deep red with a small film and decent carbonation. Taste is sweet sour cherry up front, then orange zest, and a clean dry tart cranberry finish. This leads strong and cleans up right away. Just an amazing mouthfeel. Not too sweet, just perfectly balanced. Was a big fan of this one.
