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.

Great great sour ale. Pours red with a nice small head. Aroma reminds me of a crayola marker.... In a good way... Fruity with a lot of grape and apple. Nose reminds me of red wine. Taste is fruity like red wine. Grapes and citrus, grapefruit and granny smith apples. A great beer that you definitely have to be in the mood for.

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
