3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
