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.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours an almost clear red with a tiny off-white head. Sweet and spicy cherry aroma - a rather sophisticated overripe cherry accent. Medium body, sweet and tart cherry accents, carbonation is quite rich, some tannins but the tartness is not overpowering. A very elegant beer. 200812

ChrisOs Marvellous Pre GBBF Mega Tasting. Bright red - amber beer with a residual pink head. Light dry palate, crispy. Typical Rodenbach - Mild Worcester sauce and vinegar but this one with added sweeteness, funk and raspberry and cherry fruits. Semi dry finish with the vinegar sourness starting to dominate. All right.

Hazy dark amber color with red light. Very nice fruity aroma, raspberries, some fruit stones. Highly carbonated, with some cherry flavor, medium tartness, maybe too much sweetness for this beer; traces of acetone in the end. Not overly complex, but good.
