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.

kaserov (104) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 22, 2016
Botella de 2011. Color marrón turbio con capa de espuma amarronada de un dedo de grosor. No se percibe carbonatación. El aroma es sidroso, avinagrado, ácido. El sabor es también ácido, pero bastante balanceado (lo suficiente como para que mi paladar no se cansara bebiendo una botella de 750 ml. durante la tarde). Personalmente no encuentro el maíz, ni la vainilla, pero tanto el aroma como el sabor remiten a manzana, a sidra. Increíble Sour Red/Brown. Compleja pero a la vez fácil de beber. Escasísima graduación. Todo un acierto para según qué tipo de comidas.

FunkyF (831) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2016 Flaska från SB. Mörkt brunröd med beige skum. Frisk och syrlig doft. Oväntat söt och mustig smak med fin syrlighet på slutet av äppelkart.

SylvainCFC (55) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2016
Robe brune sombre aux reflets rouges, claire. Mousse blanc cassé moyenne, tenue moyenne. Nez puissant de fermentation, boisé, légèrement fruité. Attaque acide sur la pomme verte, déploiement de vanille, caramel et amertume (douce) en fin de bouche. Belle longueur, très ronde. Notes de cerise, boisé très présent. Carbonatation moyenne très agréable. Rode-bruin ultime, un must pour les amateurs. Balance parfaite, complexité inépuisée après un verre.

Miltei kirkas, hailakanverenpunainen olut kohtalaisella, mutta melko nopeasti katoavalla vaahdolla. Tuoksu tamminen, happaman viinietikkainen, kirsikkainen ja vaniljainen. Maku hapan, viinietikkainen, kirsikkainen, hieman vaniljainen. Reilun keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma hiilihappoja hyvin vähäisesti. Samalla sekä makean tahmea että kivasti hapan kokonaisuus. Yleensä en tämän tyypin oluista juuri välitä, mutta tässä on kyllä onnistuttu loistavasti! Makeus ja happamuus erittäin hyvässä balanssissa ja tamminen sekä vaniljainen häivähdys tuo kivaa twistiä!

Pours hazy ruby/brown with a medium tan head that is short lasting. Nose is sour cherries, vanilla, oak, wood, tart apple, raspberry. Sweet and very sour flavor. Woodsy, slightly effervescent, chalky mouthfeel. Long sour finish. No burn. The yum.

HonusWagner (2072) - Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2016
Lightly sour, with a pronounced maltiness and a vineous oaky character. It’s tasty and hella drinkable, with a complexity that few beers can match. It’s damn good.

The body is deep red, bordering on dark brown. A tight off-white head that reminds me of the one you’ll find on Rochefort 10. Aromas of red fruits, apples, and brown sugar. Tastes are similar, but with the addition of some slightly boozy raisin bread. There is a sour tartness underlying it all. I can’t imagine a more perfect beer.
