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.

Complex aroma of tart cherry, wine, sour apples, wild yeast, some oak. Flavour has a little sweetness, quite sour, vinegar. Very well-balanced. I liked this one much better than the ’regular’ Rodenbach. Very, very good.

Flaska hemma - fin lite offwhite skumkrona. Doftade inte särskilt mycket och den var fruktansvärt sur. Om den inte varit så sur så hade det varit en riktigt bra öl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VDuquerroux (268) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 28, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2014 Bottle, 33cL. Home. A dark mahogany beer with orange hues. Medium thin white head. Poor persistence. Aroma of vinegar, wood and grape. Heavy sour and sweet waves mixed up. Medium body, thin texture, soft carbonation, sour finish with a sweet note. Overall, a great beer with an awesome aroma and taste. Fruity aroma is more characterized there than in Rodenbach.

ippopotamo36 (131) - ITALY - MAY 28, 2014
0,3 lt bottle purchased somewhere in Rome. Pours a reddish brown, filtered appearance, gassy beige head which immediately goes away. Nose of vinegar, red fruits, grape must. Very balanced in the mouth: vinegar notes, sourness, berries, champagne. A unique kind of beer, I had never drunk anything similar to this. Thumb up! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BOTTLE 33CL from dcmchew. Thanks, Cristian Mihai. Look: clear ruby-brown, small beige sparkling head with almost no retention. Aroma: funky/barnyardy, vinegar/fermented fruit, rubber glue, leather, acetone, some cherry among all of this? perhaps some yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Taste: quite acid and vinegary, a good deal of sweetness with ester overtones too, glue/acetone, brett.

Pours a cloudy amber with a white head. Malty notes are all around this beer. Like it's counterpart this beer starts sour with a earthy oak flavor then finishes sour. Big difference is it's level of smoothness on the pallets.

Bendrixian (1098) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Shared via Atheist_Peace. Pours a cloudy orange to red colour. Great approachable aroma with oaky, woodsy and vinous aroma with a hint of sour cherry, fruit and sour yeasty notes. Balanced flavours and a good finish sporting sour flavours and some oaky, vanillin notes. Beautiful stuff!

Bamsen78 (3108) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours slughtly hazy dark ruby with airy but stable off-white head. Intense, vinous aroma, with subtle notes of yeast. Vinous flavour with touches of berries and subtle notes of yeast. Dry and rough finish, like the end of the race on a cross-country motorbike. Good stuff.
