PriorL (1279) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 10, 2014
UPDATED: APR 11, 2014 Bottle at home. Shared with Mathieu87. APPEARANCE: clear red beer, small unstable reddish head. NOSE: cherries, sweet, artificial, little wood, lactic. TASTE: sweet, syrupy, little wood, somewhat sour. Aged quite well! This was probably worse to drink when young! Now it’s quite drinkable and refreshing.

Deep red colored pour with a bit if a caramel color. Slight amount of off-white bubbles that don't last long. No lacing. A very sour cherry aroma. Some malt notes as well. Taste is all cherries. A little bit tart and totally awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

En trade (thanks Kraddel!). Ganska låg kolsyra. Doft av körsbär och lite otippat ingen balsamico. Svag nyans av jordlällare som stör en aning. Läskande och tunn i kroppen. Körsbär är tydligt. Kul att ha testat.

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2013
Deep red colour, diminishing white head. Aroma of cherry, almond, marzipan, raisins, light sour cherry notes, dried fruits, dried apple. Quite sweet flavour, cherry juice, light fruit acids, light madeira. Still has a lot of cherry. Bit thin body, but long sweet finish, cherry, raisins, almond and funk. Developed quite nicely, came some way from the beer I used to make ice cream float with. Seems it had the tide against it when it was released, but was quite a good beer for what it was.
(From 33cL bottle @ The Morning After RBBSG II tasting, Gent 2013. Thanks for sharing, Tim!)

Clear red brown beer, small off-white head, little stable, non adhesive.

Taste: very sweet start, sugary, very fruity, cherry candy, bit lemony, more sweetness. Glad to have completed my Rodenbach series now!

kraddel (2433) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2012
had one in the kulminator . they were all out but find some, this was the very very last one they had of those ’ founded bottles’ so i guess i am very lucky here ! tastes very sweet cherries, even after al the aging ( will keep good to 2006 , how old aint this than? 2004 ? ) if you search good you can still taste the rodenbach caracter, but the sweetness is overwhelming on this one. i also got some kind of ’old cany’ taste wich i dont like at all. sugars maybe? prob wasnt there fresh... but overall better than expected !

brokensail (9935) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Bright reddish amber pour with an off-white head. Nose is just like cherry soda and candy. A bit of tartness, mostly vinegar, with a hint of lemon. There’s a fair amount of metal and some grass, too. Tastes overwhelmingly sweet. A ton of cherry, but more like a soda than anything. Sugar, light vinegar tartness, and some metallic notes.

Bottle @ Kulminator. BB 06/06. Pours cloudy golden with a small bubbly head. Juicy cherries and a bit of dark fruit. A little metallic. Smooth and dry. Quite quenching.

Served in a Rodenbach goblet. Pours a reddish-brown color without too much of a head. Nose is very heavy cherry Jolly Rancher character. Flavor is similar. Fairly tart. Not too complex. Interesting move with the twist off cap.
