A blend of 1/3 young beer and 2/3 of beer aged 2 years in large oak vats. The more important proportion of oak matured beer contributes to its fruity taste, complexity and intensity. The finish is worthy of a great wine.

I usually donít like sour ales but this one I do. The color is mahogany and the head is beige and fine. Smell... What can I say, sour. But the taste is less sour, surprisingly. Body is full. The best sour ale Iíve tasted so far.

huineman (252) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 21, 2015
Mahogany color; minimal head. Very intense sour aromas: cider, yogurt, sour cherry. Along with many other things, such as chocolate pie or mushrooms. Dry, very sour, without a trace of bitterness. Light body, short-lived finish. Difficult but very interesting.

rdb84 (243) - NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2015
Bottle. Slightly darker color than standard Rodenbach. Aroma is more pronounced, and moves towards aged red wine. Sour cherries, oak, and a metal aroma dominate. Taste is a deeper sour and sweet than the standard Rodenbach. I would say the normal Rodenbach is more of a refreshing beer to have a couple of, this one is a degustation beer. Aftertaste is relatively sticky and sweet, cherry.
