3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught at Beer Temple, Amsterdam, 1 March 2015) Brownish amber colour with foamy, off-white head. Fruity, sourish nose with notes of tart fruit, vinegar, oak wood and caramel. Fruity, tart taste with a slightly sharp vinegar taste, caramel, black-currant, sour fruit and a bitter-sweet finish with a touch of balsamic vinegar. Medium body, with a slightly bitter-sweet character. Fresh, tasty and quite tart. Not as complex and balanced as the Grand Cru, but still ... a nice one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2015 After just missing this beer in Belgium a couple of times I find it serendipitous that it should be on at Six Degrees North in my hometown of Aberdeen. It pours clear deep red-brown with small beige head. The nose is earthy, funky, damp wood, sweet tangy berry and sour red fruits. The taste is crisp, tart. yet sweet and tangy, strawberry, cherry, acidic pucker, earth, wet leaf, wood and balsamic vinegar. Finishes up dry. Medium body and fine carbonation. I rather like the balance. Tasty and very drinkable. Rodenbach I expected nothing less. Originally a 4, but after a couple more halves this crept up to a 4.2 easy. Damn drinkable.
