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.

Bottle sample at the tasting, thanks! Hazy amber-brown with a small head. Aroma of berries (raspberries, cranberries), wood, cherries and wine, a bit funky. Taste - sour berries, caramel, prunes, cherries with slightly dry finish, delicious. Medium-bodied, oily and smooth. Great.

TET (1910) - FINLAND - MAR 28, 2015
A blood red with brown notes, a head is quite weak and blond. Aroma is complex and balanced, great. Marvellous cherries and raspberries, medium and balanced sourness, some perfume, vinegar and barrel. Taste has intensive cherries and raspberries, quite strong sourness is balancing, some barrel and hint of sour cranberries. Lots of raspberries in the end. Medium+ bodied, slightly sticky, sourness is refreshning the palate. The sourness has great balance and that’s not unattached and the main element as the most times with these beers. Natural and intensive cherries and berries. Nuanced. Brilliant beer.

*from old note* Absolutely one of the best sours i have ever been drinking. Sour, very fruity and refreshing. A little sweeter than usual for the style. Almost perfect!

Nocturne (970) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2015
750ml bottle. Hazy reddish, verging on brown. Lasting head. The aroma has a blast of grape skin fruitiness, and also something I’d describe like winter spices, but it’s likely the raspberry and cranberry combining. In the taste they make for a less distinct cocktail but the fruity dimension is a good addition to a Flanders red. Tobacco undercurrent. Classy stuff.

Bottle - 750mL corked and caged. Ruby pour with a short fizzy tan head. Strong raspberry and cherry notes, sour fruit, wet oak and earthy notes. Taste is cherry pie, sour berries, tart fruit, wet wood, earthy notes and candied fruit. Body is medium with a strong, prickly carbonation. Moderate dry finish and slightly acidic. Ends with more sour berries, tart fruit, wet oak, earthy notes and some candied fruit notes. Delicious!

BiiruBierBeer (389) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Smell is nice berries and mild sourness. Taste is popping with berries and a super nice medium sourness that hits lke a brief kick and then it’s gone. Perfect carbonation with a nice full body.

A delight right from the moment of opening the bottle. Sublime, complex nose that immidiately overwhelms you in the best meaning of the word.I definitely get the cranberries in the nose as well as in the aftertaste. Cant even begin to decribe the explosion of tastes in between. Simply great.

Thanks to Suttree! You are the Man once again! Hazy, lovely shade of reddish-amberish-pinkish with an off-white pinkish head that doesn’t ever quite disappear. Holy aroma of cherries, raspberries, cranberries, and barrel. Decadently fruity but not too sweet with a really nice, balanced, sour kick that stays with you, and big oak flavor. Medium bodied, very dry, and slightly fizzy; thick-champagne-like. This is tits!
