In bottle, thanks Craig! Pours a dark golden colour with a lacy white head. Lovely aroma of balsamic vinegar, lemon, musty horse blanket and alcohol. Beautiful barley, balsamic vinegar and lemon flavours also. Mild carbonation. Superb!

This is one of the best Rodenbach products available. Although pretty high in ABV I really like the immense complexity of this beer. This is a combination of whine, beer and whiskey. Tasting the oak barrels very good. You can drink this one at Aba-Jour in Ghent.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2013 2004 Vintage bottle shared@Kulminator: appearance is incredible, no head whatsoever but it does lace a little bit, absolutely clear down to the point it looks transparent red going to slight orange/amber colour, sour yes but it also wonderfully balanced by a certain sweetness, acidic, tart cherries, lacquered wood, berries, malt, tart, funky, some sugar, slight brett, not getting any vinegar, both residual sugar sweetness mixed with tartness & nice acidic finish, incredible depth, more or less flat, amazing /// have had this many times since, no change in opinion

MrChopin (2927) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Light tan-red, no head. Vinegar, cherry and sugar rule the nose, hints of nail polish shooting in and out, light spice. Heavy sugar in the flavor, light vinegar and cherry, sticky, and burning acid in the finish, laying on the lips. Thin and too hot, a mash of flavors that don’t blend.

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 8, 2011
2004 bottle. Pours mahogany with a thin white head. Smells of tarte, sour cherries, oaky, funky. Tastes sour and vinegary with a dry citrus splash on the finish.

Scopey (5521) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2011
2004 bottle (number 017505) at the Delirium cafe, Brussels. It pours reddish amber with pretty much no head or carbonation. The nose is sweet strawberry, raspberry, vinous, malt vinegar and orange. The taste is juicy strawberry, wood, tangy cherry, tart lemon, some malt vinegar (but not nearly as much as Grand Cru), wine-like, brandy and alcohol warmth in the finish. It is initially full of sweet fruit, but has a tart finish. It is very well balanced and so drinkable at this strength. Amazing stuff.
