3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2009 Bottle, opened at christmas 2012, Red clear, typical Rodenbach colour, minimal white head. Lots of sparkling. Aroma is sour: cherries, green apple, vinegar, oak, leather. Taste is really nice. The sourness is predominantly present. Cherries and apples can be discriminated. Finish is tart and long. Lively carbonation.
Great beer, refreshing, A sad side of this large bottle is the huge amount of sourness in my stomach, that is not always appreciated. But hey, it’s worth every drop!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lactic acid and cranberry nose. Nice head. Acidic punch up front followed by surprising residual malt sweetness and red/brown character. Grape juice or wine in the finish. Improves in the glass. Some brett funk but very drinkable. Solid. The sweetness and head are surprising though; I’m guessing they pasteurize and add back some clean beer?

Vintage 2008. Perfektion är det första och ordet jag tänker på. Rodenbach levererar prima vara. Balansen mellan sötma och syra i total harmoni får lyriken att svämma över. Tack. Återigen - TACK!

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Hazy reddish brown. Thick head, very persistent.
Complex aromas that develop as the beer lingers in the glass: first, cranberries and raspberries; then, toffee and leather; finally, cookies and milk chocolate. Let it rest, don’t drink too fast.
Less dry than usual for a Red Flemmish. Sheer sourness, yet not harsh. Long-lasting, with no bitterness whatsoever.
Deserves the highest rank.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Yey! Close to beergasm! First impression - its al labout fruitiness, dried fruits, ripe fruits, overripe fruits, berries, it all leads to one tart fruity impression that is boosted by oaky character,
decent maltiness all the way in background, caramel, even some light roasted hint with some choco expression. Complex and very well balanced, yet awesomly sippable and enjoyable.
