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%

Trolleo (1587) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 15, 2017
Bit hazy dark red cherry color, minimal sized white head. Sweet cherry aroma. Taste is lots of cherries, more on to sweet side. Thin body, soft carbonation, bit creamy aftertaste. Had better.

Erzengel (8871) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2017
Bottle shared with Koelschtrinker, Beerhunter111 & Zlotta. Great deep red-woody beginning. Moderate sourness, very deep and round. The wood from the barrel aged Red/Brown Ale is there, the sourness of cherries and dry plums, great and deep. Long typical woody sour Red/Brown Ale aftertaste with not too sour cherries and smooth sour wood. Fantastic.

ippopotamo36 (2413) - Rome, ITALY - AUG 9, 2017
Tap @Birrifugio Trastevere (Rome). Reddish amber color, quite clear. Ivory foam with great retention. Nose: berries, balsamico, wood. Mouth starts sweet, too sweet imo. The sweet candy goes a bit wilder, sparkling aftertaste, rosee-wine.

Rask0lnikov (1311) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 4, 2017
750ml bottle. 2017. Pours slightly hazy reddish colour. Thin white head. Berries, cranberries, burnt caramel, sweetness in the aroma. Berries, candy dugar, burnt caramel, baksamico, slight acidity. Cranberries and burnt caramel in the aftertaste. Light bodied, medium carbonated, well drinkable beer. Classical flamish red, but maybe too sweet for my taste.

cmacklin (1205) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 4, 2017
750ml bottle. (5.6% ABV) Pours a hazy ruby-red with a medium, creamy, long lasting, light pink head that leaves curtains of lace. Sour aroma of cherries, vinegar and oak. Sweet fruity flavour of cherries, red wine and oak with a dry, tart, mildly acidic finish. Light body with a thin texture and average carbonation. Fantastic, a world class Sour Red ale.

Rune (12944) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2017
Many thanks to djoeye for sharing a big bottle, 6 % abv, of this classic beer. A white-pinkish head resting over a clear ruby-red body. Spotty lacing. Inviting mid-dry berry fruity aromas. Taste of raspberry, wood, and mid-tart marmalade. Tart, sweet and dry berry fruit to the ending. Rounded mouth feel. Well bodied. Pleasant. (Rating session with Finn and djoeye, Tromsø 26.07.2017).

Bottle shared with Zlotta and Koelschtrinker. Leicht trübes dunkel bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit einer mittelgroßen weißen schaumkrone. Geruch nach sauren Beeren, Himbeeren, Kirschen, leicht holzig. Geschmack ist mild säuerlich, reife Himbeeren, erstaunlich süffig, toll.

Zlotta (3407) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUL 29, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2017 Sampled from 0.75 l bottle from ’Belgiuminabox.com’, best before September 2019. Clear, brownish red with a white head. Sweetish, sourish-fruity aroma of cherries, raspberries, red grapes, bitter almond and some oak. Moderately sweet, slightly sour, very fruity taste of cherries, raspberries, red grapes, oak, bitter almond and some vinegar, followed by a medium long, moderately tart, woody, slightly dey and vinous finish. Thin to medium body, slightly astringent and quite effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Good!

4.3
dzudohonor (175) - POLAND - JUL 27, 2017
Aromat to zdecydowanie kwasne wisnie i lekka skóra. Smak: z poczatku zdaje sie slodkim kompocikiem wisniowym z cytrynami, nastepnie na finiszu robi sie juz lekko kwasny, lekki, rewelacyjnie orzezwiajacy, wszystko elegancko wywazone, wchodzi jak zloto.
