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 @ Stephen’s house thanks to Dave. Thanks! Pours a bright purple maroon appearance with a cream colored head. Very rich cran raspberry, juicy cherry, somewhat funky, light vanilla, juicy aroma. Very juicy, tart, oaky, tart cranberry, sweet cherry flavor. Not super complex and not as good as some Rodenbach but a good beer.

nearbeer (3849) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 28, 2014
750 mL. bb 13-05-17. Body is a misty, reddish copper and supports a thin spit of silky bubbles. Aroma is sweet and tart raspberries in cream, with dashes of vinegar and cranberry. Front flavors of raspberry and cream turn to a mild sour with some dry cranberry-apple notes in the middle. Oak comes in on the finish and lingers. Near-medium body has a high carbonation that flares up annoyingly at times. Not as sour as I was expecting, but it’s plenty for me. Nice one, but seems like the raspberry and oak dominate a bit much, and I’m usually a big fan of both.

ShivanDragon (1827) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2014
25-12-2014, schenkt mooi rood/bruin met schuimige kraag. Aroma van de vele fruiten, hout (eiken), een vele complexe fruitzuren,. Smaken zijn redelijk zoetig, redelijk complexe fruitzuren, licht bittertje, de hout / tannine tonen komen later, medium body, glad van textuur, lage co2, en lange zuur/zoetige/fruitige afdronk. Héérlijk bier, dit is precies mijn stijl..... had om nog wat hoger te kunnen scoren niet iets voller gemogen, maar al met al is het erg lekker !

Red brown color, opaque. Cherries in the nose and taste. Mouth puckering sourness comes on quickly. Leaves a dry Pez-like fruity flavor.

Nice intense magenta red. Beautiful intense cherry tart nose. Earthy cherry taste, smooth and round, highly carbonated. Refreshing . Love it - good choice for beer #2500

pineypower (2555) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Pours out a somewhat reddish cider color with a small tan head. Aroma is of sweet/tart cherries, raspberry, oak, some light tart funky notes and some cranberry. Lots of sweet/tart fruits up front. Taste is complex. Lots of fruit going on, sour cherries, raspberry, cranberry, oak, light vinegar, some mild funky notes. All the fruits play well together and not one particular one outshines the other. Very well done not over the top sour hut not over the top sweet.

PhillyCraft (3457) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle shared by Sleestacksimz, pours hazy red color with white ring. Aroma is very floral and sharp with cranberry, and old lady perfume. Flavor is acidic, overly sour berries, and cherry cheese funk. Makes you sweat immediately from its overly acidic profile. Will hurt your chest and stomach if drank in quantity. Not a big fan, rather drink some new Glarus or something with less of a sour bite.

Whatup14 (812) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 24, 2014
Bouteille 750ml, gracieuseté de tom10101, merci Tommy! Couleur rouge framboise très mûre voilée, mousse rosée évanescente. Arôme de framboise, vineux, boisé, cerise, canneberge, confiture de cerise, côté sauvage, en somme une tonne de petits fruits rouges aigrelets. Goût de fruits rouges tout aussi présent mais plus amalgamé, acidité moyenne-faible, boisé, légère astringence en fin de bouche. Carbonatation moyenne-faible, corps moyen. Ça se boit tout seul. Excellent.
