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: Główną rolę grają tutaj kwaśne wiśnie, na dalszym planie można było jeszcze wyczuć czerwoną porzeczkę oraz lekkie drewniane i winne nuty. Wygląd: Miedziane i klarowne, piana obfita i długo utrzymująca się. Smak: jest średnio kwaśny i mocno owocowy, ponownie najmocniej czuć wiśnie, a gdzieś tam w tle pojawia się trochę drewna, porzeczki i czerwonego wina. Z czasem ta średnia kwaśność ustępowała niestety słodyczy. Wysycenie było średnie w kierunku wysokiego, a finisz lekko cierpki od wiśni. Ogólnie: Dobre, ale jak dla mnie było zbyt jednowymiarowe i z czasem stawało się za słodkie. 48,50 można chyba spożytkować w lepszy sposób.

Ruddy-orange-brown pour, foamy pink head. Aroma of sour cloves and raspberries. Taste follows, sweet and tart, really well balanced, with blueberry and grape notes. Excellent.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2018 Flaska från SB. Doft av körsbär och lätt sötma. Först kryper syrlig körsbärssmak fram som sedan övergår i mer söta och dova toner med fatinslag. Fantastiskt vacker och god öl!

Zilverenmaan (423) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2018
33cl bottle from De kroon in Wijnegem. Poors red copper-brown with a cherry and strawberry shine, small whitsh head. Aroma: the grand cru immediately hits the nose, followed by some malts and cherries. TAste again distinctly lactic, rich, sweetish cherries, sugary rather than fruity though. MF slightly sticky even. The sourness and sweetness aren't really balanced at all, too much impression of cherry juice i.s.o. genuine fruityness. I.M.H.O. the vintage is miles better... Either this is too much hyped or this 33 cl bottle is not what it seems... The back label says it contains 6.5 % cherry juice from concentrate. The grand cru base is still superb.

Wonderful as always. Like the RGC it's based on, with some extra fruity notes and good tartness from the cherries.

Piterolla (32) - POLAND - JUL 5, 2018
Piękna, wisniowa barwa. Wiśnia pojawia się też na pierwszym planie w aromacie, wraz z innymi owocami leśnymi. W smaku lekko słodkawe, fajnie kwaskowe z octowością. Alkohol lekko ogrzewa gardło, wiec jest godne polecenia na ciepłe dni.

75cl bottle, near the BBQ, amber with a light brown head. aroma and taste of wood,sourness from the berries, wild yeast sourness, and wooden barrels, cherries, dry, a bit tart, it's a simple cherry version of the basic Rodenbach, nothing great about it.

Bottle at gin and beer. Medium rouge with a residing tan head. Scent is big cherry hit. Sour and aggressive. Taste is quite mature blend of strong sour cherry flavors on a somewhat bitter malt profile. Finish is frothy and soft. Great kirsh.
