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%

caesar (7623) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2018
Bottle from de Caigny. Almost clear ruby color, short frothy head. Aroma of some caramel and oak wood, bit cherry, some balsamic notes. Basically just a regular Rodenbach with some fruity cherries. Same goes for taste, not really sour, but not really sweet either. Rodenbach with cherries, thats all there is. Decent, but way overrated.

Massive sweet syrupy notes on the beginning with moderate sourness, soon the sweetness disappear while the sourness endured, lead to various red fruits, with slight bitterness. Incredible layers of depth with remarkable sweet-sour balance. Astringency tart fruity finish. 味道:香醋,甜焦糖,糖,樱桃,柠檬,还带点木头和单宁味道,像葡萄酒。入口有如糖浆般 Medium bodied, oily, very low carbonated. 口感:中等酒体,有油润感,杀口感很轻。 4/5 Overall: Incredible layers of depth with remarkable sweet-sour balance. Easy to drink. 难以置信的结构层次和令人印象深刻的酸甜平衡。易饮性很好。 18/20

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2018 Mooi roze-rood met fijne parelende witte schuimkraag. Rood fruit (kers, aardbei, kriek), snoepjes, hout, héél fijn zuurtje in de afdronk. Zoeter dan het basisbier (Grand Cru) maar minstens even lekker. Truly a classic.
