COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
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.

Wow! Some rich cherry aromas to go along with a citrus tartness and oak richness. There is a medium body with more cherry a nice rich malty that is slightly hidden by the tart cherry. The finish is clean with hints of sweetness that balance the tartness.

Read no reviews prior, was not expecting a sour but am so happy that’s what it is! Aroma of vinegar and fruits. No lacing. Flavour of yeasts, vinegar, sour cherries, lemon, lemon tarts, etc. Really good.

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 (224) - 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.

A great sour fruity beer - the aroma is not very strong but I liked it. I really liked the amber color. The greatest feature is the taste - I enjoyed the fruity and refreshing flavor with a tone of cork.

Heel mooi bier, echter niet mijn smaak. Te veel zuur en te weinig hop en citrus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
