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.

The nose has a nice tart cherry aroma, with some port wine. Darker than the regular Rodenbach, if I remember correctly. The extra oak-aging has given it more body. The sweetness has mellowed somewhat, but thankfully the sourness is still right there, and it picks up in the finish. This has all the depth of a great red wine, with some acidity, sour cherry, Belgian yeast, and a hint of raspberry. Spectacular.

SkillsFactory (273) - ITALY - NOV 24, 2015
Color caramello con riflessi dorati, limpida, schiuma beige non molto persistente che permane lungo il bordo del bicchiere formando un anello. Aroma acetico, oleosa, vinosa, lievemente sulfurea, uva fragola. Al palato prevalentemente acetica e vinosa, note di uva fragola, coda erbacea mista ad una nota acida forte ma mai sgraziata. Corpo medio, mediamente carbonata, oleosa.

Bouteille de 750ml. Je me sens privilégié d’avoir pu déguster cette bière. Acidulée, boisée, réconfortante. Finale chaleureuse. Magnifique.

On tap at bangers & lace. Musty fruity vinegar aroma. Flavor is sweet and moderately complex. Slightly dry finish. Quite good. A bit more restrained than I was expecting.
