3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle it is a reddish brown color with a slight head the aroma is of sour cherries and the taste is a nice sour cherry flavor with hints of cinnamon and lemon. For not really liking sour beers this one has potential and has a lbetter defined taste.

From a 75 cl bottle, corked and caged, shared at home. Pours a hazy brown with a tan head. Aroma of overripe apples. Flavors of tart cherries, caramel and oak. Luscious mouthfeel. Very tasty. Nice choice for my 50th Sour Red/Brown rating.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
37,5cl bottle, teku, Vintage 2011 (Barrel 95). Pours a small to medium beige head; cloudy, bit murky mahogany brown colour, ruby reflex. Smells oak/woody, berries, brett/acidic, come wine notes; quite complex, getting some different hints everytime. Tastes red/dark fruits, cherry, woody, earthy, lactic, some vinegar coming through; light to medium sweetness, medium sustained sour/acidic notes; oak, tart and wine like finish, astringency with some dryness too . Medium bodied, just correct light carbonation, balanced in its sweet/sour matching. Read in the reviews quite some comments comparisons with the Duchesse, those are actually quite similar, but I find the rodenbach to be on a higher level, especially in refinemnet and balance. I like more other styles of sour beer, but this was probably the best sour brown I’ve got to taste

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2012 bottle shared by mrebeks at The Oak. Brownish copper pour with a big head that fades quickly to a film. Aroma is surprisingly faint. Balsamic vinegar, cherry skin, vanilla, and red wine. Tastes like tart apples, vinegar, cherry skins, vanilla, and light chocolate. Not sour at all but pretty sweet up front with a moderately tart finish. Good but surprisingly tame but such a highly rated sour. I prefered the grand cru but need to revisit that one.

Reddish brown with a tanned nice head. Intense fruits and vinegar aromas. Flavor is sweet with some acid; the vinegar is taking its place. Body is thick with a sticky and long end, starting sweet and finishing deliciously sour. Carbonation is perfect.

Deep amber-ruddy pour with a thin white head. The nose is awesome.
Rich vanilla and a bit of vineous acetic character. A fairly nice
cherry aroma and a bit of raspberry. There is a little bit of soft
