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.

All I can say is Wow! Vintage 2010, Cherry flavor with vinegar and a oak finish. Get beer to crack open on New Years or any day for that matter.

Rask0lnikov (157) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 4, 2016
Ruby red colour. Medium white head ehich disappears quite quickly. Oakiness, cherries, rasperries, cranberries, vinegar in the aroma. Sour cherries at first. Tannines, raspberries in the middle. Sweetness of the other berries in the end. Rather light bodied, very well balanced, refreshing, medium carbonated, absolutely drinkable beer.

Majek (575) - Ząbki, POLAND - JAN 28, 2016
Light hazy, dark orange/red colour with medium and quite stable head. Strong aroma of acidic, cherry note, similar to wine note, slightly wood and vanilla on backgorund. Taste is light sweet, light bitter and medium sour/acidic. Finish is medium long and quite acidic and cherry. Medium to full body. Soft to medium carbonation. Very good, complex stuff. Its tastes like mix of good sour beer and wine.

Wow. Amazing aroma of pie cherries, barrel, and age. More fruity and yet with a drier finish than the base. Fantastic. This is special stuff. Tasted at 50°F.

Vintage 2013. Great mellow oak aromas, nice dark red and orange hues. Very smooth brew, good balance between sweetness and sour. A really exceptional brew.
