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%

Barwa brunatna, niewielka piana, delikatnie oblepia szkło. W aromacie wino,wiśnie, truskawki. W smaku słodkie i mocno kwaśne, bardzo pijalne. Po prostu znakomite piwo.

On tap at Café Cambrinus, Bruges. Shared with Anke.
Pours hazy red with a lasting, small, frothy, pinkish head. Enticing aroma of sweet cherry, marzipan, oak, red berries, red wine, vanilla, hint of lactic acid. It tastes medium fruity (cherry) sweet, not overly so, balanced by a medium funky sourness. Tart, sweetish finish, light oaky bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, fizzy carbonation. Great balance, so tasteful.

Bottle shared at partizan. Thanks to Daniel. A reddy brown coloured pour with a lasting G loose off beige. Aroma is jammy fruits, raspberry, cough syrup, sweet red fruits. Flavour is composed of medium sweet, red berries, cherry, cranberry.. Palate is medium sweet, moderate carbonation. Nice.

beton (743) - Tarnobrzeg, POLAND - MAR 16, 2018
Niesamowicie rześko, owocowo w nosie. Sporo wiśni, czereśni, czerwonej porzeczki, ślinianki zaczynają pracować.W odbiorze wydaje się nieco zbyt nisko wysycone, aksamitne a jednak przyjemnie szczypiące w język z ciekawym octowym akcentem na końcu. Bardzo lekko się pije. Piwo posiada świetny balans, owocowo kwaśny, octowy mariaż.

Opět velká spokojenost, nyní už jsem vyzkoušel všechny tři archivní Rodenbachy! A všechny doopravdy super. Charakteristika téměř stejná, jako u předchozích dvou, zde ovšem bylo pivo jemnější (méně alkoholu), ale to vůbec nekazí dojem z doopravdy skvělého piva :)

willisread (4207) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 5, 2018
2016 bottle shared with the crew at CB. Pours a clearish ruby with a finger of off-white foam that lingers. Lovely tart cherry nose, some light cough drop notes, cherry skin and oak. More cherry skin and stone on the palate, oak and light vanilla. Sweet cherry on the palate with some bright tartness as it warms. Low acidity, but impeccably balanced. So smooth and enjoyable. Would pair well with any number of foods. Cherry and berry throughout. Another world class beer from Brouwerij Rodenbach.

Bottle, thank you Tim. Nice reddish amber pour, quite transparent and clear. Beautiful sour vinegary nose, sweet without sweetness, sticky, berries there. Taste has good sweetness in the base, measured vinegar, smooth berry character. Nice and enjoyable classic, I like it is not too sour, just a right amount of tartness. Well balanced and totally enjoying this. World class and world classic.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2018 One of the great beers of Belgium. This beer is fantastically complex, with a cherry sourness that puckers your mouth but balances perfectly with the sweetness.

biilz (387) - SPAIN - FEB 22, 2018
Аромат очень квашеный, с легким сладким оттенком. Пена кремовая, весьма быстро падает. Цвет классический для кислого эля. Вкус открывается не очень приятным дико кислым и даже местами уксусным взрывом. Также мгновенно кислятина опадает и дает легкое ощущение ягод и намеком на фрукты. Послевкусие достаточно долгое, квашенное. В целом хороший кислый эль, но надеялся на большее.
