Alengrin (3674) - 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.

ThirstyBird (2314) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
At zythos, pours a drop amber with a hint of haze and a small tan head. The smell is oak, cherry, vinous. The taste is as it smells ending dry and tart. Light body and a bit slick with prickly carbonation.

Draught @ Beer Museum, Brugge. Deeper, slightly dark amber in colour with a thick bubbly head. Has a sour character throughout with very woody and earthy aromas. Alongside the fair sourness there’s some fruit and is inactive in the palate.

Tap at Beer Temple, 19th December 14. Aroma is sour, wood, grapes. Flavour is sour, booze soaked wood, almost slightly ciderish. It’s OK, not as clean as I would like
