COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rodenbach Vintage is the unique result of selection by our Rodenbach brew masters, the barrel after two years of maturation has produced the best beer, "the best barrel of the year". The label is always the number of barrel stated and the year which marks the beginning of maturation.

Rodenbach Vintage is 100% matured old beer, resulting in superior Rodenbach Grand Cru. Its taste is complex, round, intense and refreshing. Typically, the apple tart fruitiness combined with caramel, wild honey and oak with a hint of vanilla, cherry and licorice. Its aroma has hints of caramel and oak, as well as notes of green apples mixed with honey and chocolate. The soft sour, fruity aftertaste is long and nicely balanced like a grand cru wine.

Ingredients: water, barley malt, corn, hops.

Ysok02 (375) - MOns, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2015
Robe brune, reflets rougeâtres. Nez puissant où l’on retrouve des notes balsamiques, de la cerise, de la prune, un boisé délicat, du caramel, de vanille. Bouche à l’attaque superbe d’élégance et de fruit, de l’ampleur, de fraîcheur et une très longue finale fruitée et acidulée. Un régal d’un équilibre impressionnant.

[Ölresa i Bryssel med Wihlan 2015] viss den var bra, syrligheten fanns där och den vägdes upp av en fruktig sötma men hade hoppats på det dör lilla extra
