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.

From a bottle shared at the DC Epic Sour Beer Tasting. Thanks to Shaftie for bringing this classic Belgian sour ale! Pours a clear amber with an off white head. Flavors of sweet plums and tart cherries with a subtle oakiness. Nice.

Color rubí con espuma color crema oscura. Aromas dulces y afrutados de caramelo y frutos rojos con toques ácidos. Cuerpo medio-alto, el sabor es exactamente el que encontramos en la nariz, añadiendo un final seco. Excelente.

Bottle. The beer pours to a bright ruby orange body with an off-white head. The aroma is cranberry, floral hops, raspberry, and nice yeast created fruit. The flavor is fabulous. Cranberry and raspberry. Tart and acidic. Very delicate even with the sourness. The beer is fabulous.

Bottled. Poured cloudy reddish orange with a short toasted beige head. The aroma picked up lots of tart cherries and oak with nice funk. The flavor found similar, picking up some cranberry.. more tart cherry and oak on the finish. Tart, refreshing, and well-balanced.
