@ Antwaerps Bierhuyske. Amber red brown colour, creamy beige foam. Very complex aroma of red fruit, balsamic vinegar. Very well balanced. Very drinkable. --> Very good!

tap at rrbf. This was nice. Definitely the most sour Rodenbach I have ever had. Much more of a true flemish red (in my opinion) than either the OG or GC. Nice cherry sourness melds well with the woody oakiness. Fun to try this rare gem.

Sample from Raleigh Rare Beer: Cask - Interesting. Sours arent completely my forte but it was well balanced.

Först när jag blir serverad fattar jag vilken jäkla häftig öl det här är. Rodenbach, som gör mina favoritöl ha här lastat ur sig en ofiltrerad realale! Hur tungt är inte det? Blir nästan lite knäsvag när killen börjar slita i pumpkranen och glaset fylls på (i ett Rodenbachglas!). Väldigt lik Grand Cru i både doft och smak. Lite mer inslag av ättika i doften och lite "extra allt" i smaken. Sjukt nöjd att den här fortfarande fanns kvar. Får inte missas om man får möjlighet att testa någon gång

Draught at DHVL - pours dark amber with a steady medium white head. Aromas of caramel, red forest fruits, balsamic vinegar. Nice tart body with loads of sweet sourness. Taste is a pecullar balance between caramel and balsamic vinegar. Makes me think of the Caractère Rouge, minus the extra fruitiness.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 27.09.2013, 0,33l "take away" bottle courtesy of Vincent, shared with Palme @ hotel in Leiden:
Completely flat, and full of various particles. Even some small flies, and larvae?!?! WHAT THE F*CK!!? Who knows what’s in this one!? I really should pour this in the toilet right away... Aroma is mild and slightly sour-ish, caramel, red berries, oak, butterscotch. Do I even dare drink this?! A tiny sip maybe; mild slightly sour-ish dry, sour berries, oak sorrel, grass, caramel. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Probably a very nice beer. I guess I’ll have to rerate this some time when I get the chance. That being straight from the tap...
