From a can. Fine head, very fruity and thin, quite refreshing once you get used to it.

Live rating: 25 cl bottle served cool in a Hoegaarden Grand Cru tulip. Aroma is leather, vinegar and old trainer insole. Deep brown body, slightly hazy, with a creamy beige head. Sour apple flavour, some burnt cinder toffee, piquant fruitiness, and Lancashire cheese... mmm, mmm, mmm... even a tiny sip delivers a marvellous taste experience. Bitter sweet, medium bodied, astringent... tasty doesn’t do it justice.

Pour is brownish with a thin off-white head. Nose is woody with some sourness. Taste is red grapes, oak barrel and some sourness. Some vanilla notes too. Pretty light body and not overwhelmingly sour. Low carbonation. Well done, but not outstanding.

suurjuust (1788) - ESTONIA - APR 5, 2015
Hazy brown beer, small tan head. Nose is tart with acidic notes, flavor is tart and somewhat vinous with plums, spice and berry hints. Pretty drinkable, not as tart and acidic I thought it would be.

I don’t like it as much as it’s reputation made me believe. It is too sweet for me.

Smell is malt and mild sourness. Taste is very very mild sourness and semi-sweet and sour red/brown. Medium body, medium to high carbonation, and mild foam.

Une bière facile à boire délicieuse,je pourrait en boire des tonnes.Son mixte de jeunes et de vieux brassin sont parfait.Jaimerais bien que des brasseries Québécoise puisse recréer quelque chose de similaire.

Piana hm, nie pami?tam, pojawi?a si? i znikn??a. Aromat winny, ale te? wi?nie, czere?nie, i jeszcze jakby korkowy (piwo dojrzewa w d?bowych beczkach). ?linianki pracuj? intensywnie. Aromat sugeruje ?e smak b?dzie wytrawny. Tak jak mo?na by?o oczekiwa?, smak wytrawny, kwaskowy, dominuj? ciemne i czerwone owoce, winogrona. Rodenbach jest przyjemnie cierpki i bardzo pobudzaj?cy kubki smakowe, momentami jest ?ci?gaj?cy. Gdzie? daleko w tle mo?na doszuka? si? nut korka (skojarzenie z winem) lub innego drzewa, nie b?d? ?ciemnia? ?e s? to nuty beczek d?bowych bo to chyba nie to. ?rednio wysycone, z dobrze ukrytym alkoholem. Idealny trunek do sytych obiadów. To piwo to kolejny belgijski klasyk i cho? s? inne, by? mo?e lepsze wariacje tego stylu, to Rodenbach jest jeden.
