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.

mathieuc (3374) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2013
Pours a nice red with no head (or so). Aroma of vinegar, red fruits and oak. Taste is more of the same, reminescent of the Classic. Taste is nicely balanced between sweet and sour, ultra quenching! Quite an awesome drink!

Beermack (725) - London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2013
2010 vintage at Probus Wines, Dublin. Pours deep ruby red with thin pinkish white head. Aroma gives loads of cherries, leather, oak, cyder vinegar, and sour berry tartness. Taste is a full-on explosion of sweet and tart cherry character: lots of sugary cherry flavour mixed with the almost-vinegary red berry sourness. Some funk and oakiness. Vinous notes. Lovely tartness, not too overpowering. Impressive cherry character lingering. Crisp tart finish. Oak, leather, cherry and yeast funk linger long into the aftertaste. Pure class.

RoyalFlushing (326) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - MAY 11, 2013
2010 vintage bottle poured a murky reddish brown with a medium long lasting foamy white head and minimal lacing. Aroma includes marciano cherry juice with hints of soy sauce, vinegar, and oak. Taste begins with an enjoyable tart cherry flavor followed by a wave of carbonated raspberry bliss leading to a crisp finish. Wonderful bubbly mouthfeel with tart fruit lingering on the palate. Complex, refreshing experience.

JulienHuxley (5606) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle, 2010 vintage. Pours a beautiful, clear, dark red pour with off white foam. Aroma unites the usual suspects: cherry, wood and acetic vinegar notes is a really rich bouquet. Lots of subtle earthy notes and wood, tart cherries, light, not syrupy at all. Taste is just sour enough, really good sweet/sour combo. Palate is half dry, with fine carbonation. Very nice.

mcberko (14644) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2013
2010 Vintage, 750mL bottle at DHVL, pours a fairly clear deep dark amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of light oak, some tart red berries, and a touch of vinegar. Flavour is very complex, with notes of tart red berries, vinegar, and oak. Loads of depth, with a wonderful balance between vinegar, oak and tart berries. There is a good balance of sweetness that balances out the vinegary tart notes. Wonderful Rodenbach vintage. Excellent stuff.

RexTalionis (3516) - FINLAND - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle 75 cl. Pours reddish amber in color with a dense tan head. Vinegar notes in aroma, sour fruits too and some wooden oak barrels notes in aroma as well. A bit of vanilla spicyness is there too and some light funky/earthy notes steps forward after a while. Sour and fruity in taste, some sweeter notes as well are present. A bit of vinegar and tart apple notes in taste. Sour and tart for sure, but in not in a overwhelming way. A bit of tart sherry oak vinous vibes towards finish.
