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%

akwed (99) - - OCT 14, 2018
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2018 W aromacie wisnie w czekoladzie, kwasnosc, lekkie nuty funky. Ponadto slodycz, wanilia, nuty drewniane. Wisnie ze szkla jeszcze intensywniejsze, calosc natomiast ma troche ciezki charakter. Barwa rubinowo-czerwona wpadajaca w braz, piana biala, ladna. W smaku pierwsze co natychmiastowo sie rzuca to intensywne wisnie w polaczeniu z niemalze rownie intensywna wanilia. Nastepnie dochodza nuty drewniane, debowe, lesnych owocow, czerwonego wina, dochodzi winna cierpkosc, taniny (ktorych jednak az tak wiele nie jest, sciaganie na stosunkowo niskim poziomie). Calosc sprawa wrazenie dobrze wykreowanej, spojnej kompozycji, piwo jest 'smooth'. Finisz jest srednio dlugi, winny, waniliowy i cierpki.

theciderfanatic (7) - - OCT 8, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2018 750 ml bottle from Systembolaget. We have got 5.6 % ABV in this one. Aroma is sour and fruity with notes of oak, cherry, raspberries and tart dark fruits. Flavor is nicely balanced between sour fruitiness and sweetness. Strong flavor of cherries, bitter cherry seeds, dark fruits and oak. Aftertaste hits you strong with that barrel flavor. Overall a really enjoyable sour ale from Belgium.

Scrumpy369 (1156) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 6, 2018
Bottle at csakajo. Red colour small white head. Nose is cherry, light acetic acid. Taste is low sourness, no bitterness at all. Cherries, leather, tart, light acetic notes. Easy drinking. Lovely.

s3quin (72) - Warszawa, POLAND - OCT 6, 2018
Aroma: Cherries, wild yeast notes, lacks the usual complexity of flanders sours. I get a fresh cucumber note, strange. Appearance: Clear ruby, small white head. Taste: Sweet and sour. Way too sweet for me. Palate: Average body and quite high carbonation. Overall: Disappointment, instead of one of the best flanders beers in my life I got something closer to sweetened krieks... It is not terrible, but not even close to what I expected.

CzechTex (168) - - OCT 5, 2018
More or less a variation of Grand Cru as best as I can discern. Truly excellent, would be interested to compare it side by side with Grand Cru. A bit expensive...but worth it.

3.6
TEJA (3746) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2018
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2018 Bottle sampled at SBWF at Rodenbach master class. Small lingering light grey head. Oxidized cherry aroma with a touch of lactic acidity. Some cherry pits cyano aroma as well. Fruity cherry taste. No bitterness.

4.3
Idiosynkrasie (9146) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2018
Tap at Craft Bier Bar Hannover. Minimally cloudy, deep ruby colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, pink-ish off-white head. Sweet-ish and tart-ish, fruity, spicy, vinous aroma, notes of morello, a touch of balsamico, blue grapes, grape juice. Taste is sweet-and-sour fruity, slightly tangy, vinous, notes of morello, sweet cherry, a touch of balsamico, blue grapes. Superb!

dnstone (4628) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2018
Pours a pinkish amber color with rose head. Sweet and sour cherry lollipop aroma and taste. Nice tart cherry bite, like the bottom of a cherry Italian ice. Sweeter than I usually like but with a great tart balance and cherry character. Notes: bottle from Belgium, Rodenbach tasting, Oct ‘18
