4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow, this might be the best looking beer I’ve ever seen. It’s a hazy slightly pink/rosey red color with a small and fizzy, very light pink head that is almost white. There is a surprising amount of musty and grassy funk on the nose, very tart smelling, kind of that balsamic vinegar tart Rodenbach is known for, I can mostly smell the cranberries, the cherries and raspberries seem to blend together somewhat, and a nice subtle oak note. Wow, this beer continues to blow me away. Sweet raspberries up front, lots of bright red berry taste, the fruit seems to cut the sourness away quite a bit, though there is still plenty of that patent rodenbach balsamic vinegar sourness, a nice oaky taste, and a nice bit of barnyard funk. Wow, what an astounding beer. So refreshing and delicate, not overly sweet, and very smooth.

Tap. Deep reddish amber with small head. Huge tart berry, like a fruit explosion. Light oak. Really great stuff, but I’d still give the nod to vintage.

Tap at De Paas. Slight hazy red with light brown hue and creamy pink head. Looks amazing. Overripe red fruit, typical Rodenbach oxidized sherry with light glue, fresh respberries, cherry juice, some berry pits, dead leaves, hay, white grape skins. Medium sour and sweet. Medium bodied with slick feel and soft prickly champagne like carbonation. Lovely beer.

75cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks a lot! Pours hazy caramel brown, some reddish notes and a fairly small, off-white head. Delicious aroma of sour berries with some wooden and slightly earthy notes, hints of dried fruits and malt. Sour, fruity and complex with lovely flavour of raspberries and cherries and a nicely sour finish. Delicious stuff!

Tap at Cafe de Koffer. Clear red copper with thin offwhite head. Cherries, cherry stones, strawberry, woodglue, cinnamon, cork. Very sweet base with vinegar sour softly leaning in, quite a sour sting eventually. Medium body, low to no carbonation. Lactic response. Quite dry, with a cinnamon soft finish.

Tap@ de Klep. ABT bier van de maand.. Rode kleur, schuim verdwijnt tot een laagje op het bier. Aroma van cassisranja . Smaakt zoetzuur, kersen, stoffig, niet echt complex. Viel me tegen gezien de hoge score op ratebeer.
