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.

willisread (2460) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 14, 2016
One of the original 900 bottles shared. Thanks Shuichi! Huge tart cherry and raspberry nose with oak. Everything is so well-integrated on the palate. Smooth and creamy vanilla and berries. Super fruity. Sweet, but not overly so at all. Very approachable and has a well-balanced body. Great stuff!

KoNrRiI (1218) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2016

0.75 bottle.
A very hazy, crimson color with a small, off-white head of good retention. A pungent aroma of wine, strawberries, acidic tones of fermentation, wild yeasts, and delicate hints of ash and tobacco. Taste is sweet and sour, very fruity, mouthwatering, delicately smacking of earth. A medium body, an oily texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is long, sour, more woody and ashy; the fruits have undergone a sudden change and now taste much more fermented going in the direction of Balkan fruit liquors. Overall a great beer, well-balanced and simply drinkable.

mateuszk (2085) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 12, 2016
Bottle. Pours nice red in colour with small pinky head. Aroma of fresh berries, cherries with light (really just a touch) vinegar. In taste fruit in a fantastic way, cranberries and tart cherries upfront then light vinegar, funk and wood. Medium body, moderate carbonation, dry and fruity tart finish. Maybe it was really fresh bottle but it was all about fruitiness with a touch of funk and tartness and not sourness, vinegar, funkiness. Fantastic mix, very light, fruity an easy drinkable.
