COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rodenbach Alexander was brewed for the first time in 1986 on the occasion of Alexander Rodenbach’s 200th birthday and is now back by popular demand to the delight of beer lovers in Belgium and abroad. It is a blend of 2/3rd aged Rodenbach (100% 2 year aged beer) with 1/3rd younger ale, macerated with sour cherries. The natural flavour and taste of sour cherries brings a perfect match between the sour beer and the red fruit. Its aftertaste is reminiscent of a Burgundy wine and its freshness makes this beer the perfect aperitif or accompaniment to cheeses or dessert. Note: The 2016 version has the abv of 5.6%

Aromat to zdecydowanie kwasne wisnie i lekka skóra. Smak: z poczatku zdaje sie slodkim kompocikiem wisniowym z cytrynami, nastepnie na finiszu robi sie juz lekko kwasny, lekki, rewelacyjnie orzezwiajacy, wszystko elegancko wywazone, wchodzi jak zloto.

(Rodenbach Alexander) Bottle 750ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 5.6% Deep red colour on the body, clear, with a small and thin beige head on top. Aroma of cherries, red fruits, grapes, vinegar. Taste begins sweet with a nicely sour finish though, red fruits, some sugars, cherries, long sour aftertaste. Medium thin body, very dry on the palate. Very good.

Fresh fruity aroma. Great taste of berries - well-balanced. High sourness and medium lasting bitterness. Full body and average lively carbonation. Perfect!

Tap at Craftownia. Aroma is little bit viegear-ish, also some red fruits, a lot of cherries, vanilla, and funky notes. Taste the same, a lot of cherries, a little bit tart, wooden notes and leather-ish notes. Beer is rather sour, smooth. Good one.

Hallonröd med tunt rödbeige skum. Doftar sötsurt av körsbär. Smaken fyllig, syrlig, lite fruktig och tämligen torr. Eftersmaken ganska lång och fruktig, i slutet enbart sur.

geolgau (251) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - JUL 11, 2017
Aroma is very nice, full of sour cherries. Topped with green walnuts skin, almonds and just the right amount of sweetness. Not too sour, it feels quite balanced from the aroma itself. Taste is very good, very balanced between sourness and sweetness. Ripe fruits, sour cherries, ripe grapes, even some strawberries. Complex and elegant, this is a fine liquid!
