COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Dejlig frugt og sødme i duften. Smager som sursød slik. Lækker syrlig eftersmag og føles godt i munden. En anelse klistret i den lange eftersmag.

Sebilinz (1364) - Linz, AUSTRIA - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle. Reddish brown body with very small white head. Aroma is cherries, raspberries other red fruits and some wood and some balsamico. Taste is nearly the same with more sourness, and some additional malts. Aftertaste is nice sour and fruity with no bitterness. Very nice one.

Gentle_Ben (22) - Rutland, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2016
Pours reddish brown with a transitory tiny white head. The nose is cherry, raspberries and cranberries(as per the deScription) along with the musty warmth of wood and sharp Parma violets. The taste is nicely carbonated with a massive hit of the fruits counterpointed well with oak and old ale. The cranberry gives a lovely length of finish. A complex refreshing and tasty drop!

Frax (10) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 5, 2016
750ml bottle. Faint cherry and sugar aroma. Smells much stronger as it warms up. Effervescent pour with a think red head that flattens out quickly. Less sour than anticipated, which is not necessarily bad. Light body with a long, even finish. Improves greatly as it warms to room temperature.

RRistow12 (531) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy ruby with thick off white head. Aroma is fruity with cherries and other berries, a little sour aroma but not much. Taste is very well balanced with nice fruity sweetness mixed with sour tart. Flavors of cherry, raspberry, cranberry. Very drinkable. Excellent sour. One of my favorites. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. Watching Sons of Anarchy 5x03-04. Nice fruity nose, without tartness. Fruity taste too, with sourness typical of its fruits. Wouldnt repeat however.

thellgren (608) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2016
0.75 l bottle from Alko Arkadia (Special Limited Collection), Helsinki. Amber colour some head. Aroma is yeasty with fruits. Taste has cherries mellowed with the other fruits and great tartness. This is really a fruit beer without any sweetness. Bit more complicate than just lambic with sour cherries since the base beer is not just dry but also also somewhat malty. Still you shouldn’t expect any beer like taste.
