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.

75 cL bottle. Pours cloudy dark orange with a huge and light tan head. Aroma is fruity, light acetone and sweetish. Sweet malty and mild citric flavoured. Slight phenolic and dry malty with milky base flavoured. Somewhat sweet into the finish, yet with a growing acetone dryness and bite. Dry and acetone lasting impression once the initial sweetness has declined.

Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours a deep reddish amber with a tiny off-white head. Tart woody nose with notes of cherries and marzipan. Medium body, very tart yet with an underlying sweetness and again elegant woody edges. Tart finish. A delicious beer yet not really with enough complexity to be a world classic. 141109

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2011
Corked bottle
Dark amber to mahogany color, hazy, with red shades; medium sized creamy head. Sour aroma, some acetone, light malt. Good body, with moderate sweetness, light malt flavor; it has a good fruity and acidic touch, still with some acetone, and traces of wood. The fruity and sweet side reminds me of the old Duchesse de Bourgogne, but without reaching the same levels of elegance.
