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.

Leighton (17473) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2016
Bottle at home in London - picked up a while back in Belgium. I think it’s about 3-4 years old. It pours mostly clear amber-brown with a creamy, light tan head. Great aroma, with lots of tart berries, sweat, faint wood, cherry, raspberry. Light to medium sweet flavour with a refreshing, salty sweatiness, more tangy berries, impressions of toasted oak, mellow but assertive acetic bite. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Pleasantly tart and acetic on the finish, with more sour berries, some cherry and raspberry, very light notes of fig and caramel. Overall, this is excellent stuff. I remember the Grand Cru seeming a bit sweeter, but this is really nicely rounded and fairly dry.

Pours a deep orange-brown with thin off white head and aromas of sour, tart fruit & some caramel. Acidic & medium cranberry & lemon sourness just short of eye squinting, in a very refreshing and light body. The taste is gose like, with some added complexity.

Dark, hazy, ruby brown colour. Thin line of froth around the glass. Hints of horseblanket. Hints of cranberries and billberries in the aroma. Hints of caramel and cherries at first. Hints of cranberries in the middle. Sour finish. Hints of vinegar and berries in the aftertaste. Nice one.

MartyW (52) - DENMARK - APR 16, 2016
Bottle, Red/brown color with a slight beige head. Aroma of vinegar, medium fruit sweetness. Taste consists of sour and sweet cherries, balsamic vinegar with earthy hints. Finishes off dry like a red wine. Overall more fruity and less balsamic than the regular Rodenbach. This one is far better imo.

MohaBeer (174) - Lima, PERU - APR 11, 2016
Marrón con reflejos rojizos y crema poco duradera; muy aromática, con notas de manzana (sidra), frutos rojos (en particular cereza), yogur, chocolate (Phoskitos). En boca se muestra seca, claramente ácida, sin amargor; de paso ligero y final breve.

Butelka. Nalewa się z szybko opadającą pianą, kolor rubinowo-brązowy. Aromat, winny, mocne czerwone owoce, porzeczki. stopniowo coraz mocniejsza staje się karmelowość, daleko pobrzmiewają echa skórki od chleba, czekoladowość. Z czasem pojawiają się akcenty pochodzące od brettów, a także wanilia oraz rodzynki? Kompleksowy aromat. Delikatna goryczka, niestety umiarkowanie kwaśne, dość wysoko nasycone. Aksamitna tekstura piwa, lekkie ciało piwa.
