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.

Ontape (470) - Valley Village, California, USA - NOV 28, 2013
2011 bottle. Good but nothing special. Too sweet and not sour enough for me. Not a bad beer at all but for $21 a 750 I can’t see buying again. If you like sweeter Flanders Reds, it’s worth a try.

Lowenbrau (3073) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 20, 2013
750ml bottle @Cimmeria. Sour, caramel, wood aromas. Pours hazy copper-reddidh, with nice tan head, vanishing, some lacing. Light body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is a good combination of sour flavours, kind of lively, with more mature, wood, liquor like ones. Balanced and very enjoyable.

tom10101 (4982) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle (750 ml). Vintage 2010. Slightly hazy amber with a beautiful medium dense and mostly lasting beige head along with some lacing. Aroma is typical of Rodenbach beers, but is so refined. There’s a lot of red fruits (especially cherries), oak, vanilla, sharp acetic notes, caramel and a nice earthy presence. Taste is also of red fruits, oak, vinegar, caramel and vanilla. Medium body. Moderate/medium carbonation. Dry finish. Very complex and tasty. Great balance. Amazing beer!
