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%

750ml bottle. Rossiccia, lievemente torbida, schiuma bianca media. Al naso sentori di frutta rossa, leggero acetico, pungente, lieviti, note di vino rosso, botte. In bocca è dolce all'attacco, frutta rossa, leggero acetico, vinosa, acidità moderata. Corpo medio, carbonazione media. Mi aspettavo di più da questa birra, che fino a qualche anno fa era in coma alla mia wishlist. Comunque molto buona!

Aromat winny, wiśniowy. W smaku początkowo winno-octowa kwaśność, przechodząca w owocową słodycz. Dużo czerwonych owoców, troszkę dzikich klimatów, trochę beczki. Bardzo dobre, pijalne i ułożone.

Reddish brown, with a quickly dying off-white foam. Body is smooth and oily. Nose is acetic, malty and lightly fruity. It bursts into life as soon as it hits the mouth - an explosion of red fruit with berries, sour cherries, strawberry, over a backdrop of red wine vinegar. Darker red wine notes at the end. Fairly sweet, subtle sourness.

Aroma is cherries with a light earthy and also a soda-pop like scent. Taste is tart cherries at first but also a strawberry sweetness. Light vinegar and earthy wood comes creeping underneath and helps this one from being too straightforward and simple. A really tasty "almost sour" red. And believe it or not, but this was actually my first try on this legendary beer. I'll never avoid a beer with cherries again.

Flaske 750ml spandert av djoeye. Delt med ham og Rune hos førstnevnte 26 Jul 17. Kirsebærfarget. Dyprød. Filmskum. Litt lacing. Kirsebæraroma. Smaken har et monotont sursøtt kirsebærpreg.

Bill Becker (1105) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - AUG 30, 2017
Best by September 15th 2019. Pours a deep Amber, clear, with some light bubble action and a fair amount of foam. Sour and sweet cherries nose, hints of vinegar and wood. The taste is slightly more sweet than sour, sour is cherries, mild vinegar. I get woody notes from the oak. Medium body with mildish carbonation. Excellent and very refreshing.

jerohen (2335) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2017
Bottled from Biernavigatie.nl. Slightly hazy red brown colored, beautiful lasting off-white head. Nose of fresh cherries, balsamic vinegar, malts, marzipan, but mostly the fresh cherries. Flavor is Flemish Sour in its most beautiful form, balsamic vinegar, sourness, pretty aged, but with the fresh cherries blending in extremely nice. Lasting sour and very fruity finish. This beer was a legend, and i must say it really deserves that reputation. The combination of pretty aged Flemish Sour flavor together with the fresh fruit is phenomenal. One of the best of its kind. I have to buy more of this for sure.
