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%

emacgee (5045) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 7, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2020 Ruddy deep red pour with a light pink head. Nose is intense cherry, smells like a bowl of sour cherry pie filling. Bright, tart sour cherries upfront in the flavor, deep sweet red fruit. Crisp and bright acidity, very nice.

BlackHaddock (10601) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2020 On tap in de Bierboom, Brugge on 31st Jan 2020. Reddy brown body, mini-haze; off-white top. Old cherry nose and taste, semi-tart, semi-bitter, glad it wasn't too sour.

4.5
Grisza77 (1399) - Poznań, POLAND - JAN 26, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2020 Jasno wiśniowe piwo o średniej pianie, która zdobi szkło i pozostaje do końca w formie pierścionka przy brzegu szkła. Aromat fajny wiśniowy. W smaku wybitne, lekko słodkie, wiśniowe, lekko kwaśne i pestkowe. Goryczka niska. Ogólnie mega smak, bardzo fajna wiśnia, dobrze ułożone, mega pijalne.

3.4
Spab (6068) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2020 750 ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a lightly cloudy reddish brown colour with modest-sized off-white head. Aroma is tart, juicy cherries with light oak and a little lemon. Flavour is modestly acidic red wine vinegar with juicy cherry, light lemon and light oak. Medium bodied. Nice.

3.8
jjsint (5170) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2020 Bottle from the Offie, Leicester. Drunk at home. Pinkish red, translucent with a ring of off-white head. Sour cherry, some vinegar and oak on the nose. Sweetness in the taste, rounded out by tartness toward the finish. Medicinal cherry in the aftertaste. Medoum carbonation. It's an incredibly good beer: delicious, balanced and more cherries than you can shake a stick at.

3.8
Nocturne (2905) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2019 750ml bottle. Reddish brown. Off-white head. Red apple, sherry vinegar, brown sugar, grape skin. Taste is balanced, soft, good blend of sweet and slight tartness, not palate wrecking. Refined.

4.1
EvanFriend (844) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2019 A perfect blend of the Rodenbach fermentation character and jammy, fruity cherry notes that give off a massive amount of flavor without making the beer too sweet. Very, very good.

3.8
chris__hartley (504) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2019 It pours deep mahogany; the head is a very light pink and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: cherries, lemon-juice, fermenting dough, and red-fruit jam. The taste is lightly sweet that finishes heavy sour - albeit balanced. The palate is medium-full bodied, with heavy carbonation (soft mouthfeel), and a long sour finish. Overall, I don't really see much of a difference between this and the Grand Cru, but it's a tad sweeter.

3.9
Maris (2200) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 13, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2019 From a 330ml bottle on 13/12/2019 (ABV 5.6%, 'Aged in Oak Foeders'). Pours a cloudy reddy brown with a small head. Has a slightly tart nose, dominated by cherries. Flavour wise, it's very sweet upfront, again with cherries to the fore. This is met by a moderate, refreshing sourness, which balances things out beautifully. The mouthfeel is slick and the carbonation quite lively. Sours are generally not my thing, but these Flanders red ales are an exception. A delightful dessert beer.
