Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - OCT 3, 2014
The ’raw’, unsweetened, unfiltered maturing Rodenbach directly from the wooden cask, only for sale in a few pubs in Roeselare and at beer festivals, as far as I know. Yellowish beige, thin head, deep burgundy colour, soft but outspokenly tart character, with yoghurt-like lactic acidity dominating rather than sharp lemon or vinegar acidity, gentle mouthfeel, tons of estery fruitiness (passion fruit again as always in Rodenbach, redcurrant, gooseberry), dry, complex woody finish. Obviously, and as with unblended lambics, the character, complexity, tartness, fruitiness, woodiness and even alcohol strength can differ from barrel to barrel. Very interesting and useful for anyone trying to understand what Rodenbach (or Flemish red in general) is all about.

DialSquare (2937) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2014 On tap at House Beer. Red brown pour. Aroma of light vinegar and berry. Tastes are sour, berry, grape, vinegar. Moderately tart. Just had a La Folie, so this was more subdued sourness. Good overall, though not crazy complex.
