Rodenbach Alexander was brewed for the first time in 1986 on the occasion of Alexander Rodenbachs 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%

(2016+ version; On tap @Taphouse) Delighted to be able to try this legendary beer. I do however feel like I have nothing to add beyond what Alengrin said basically as it largely matches my own experience of the beer.

Bottle. Cherry, oak, marzipan, some kind of sweetness. Flanders red feel, but wonder if absence made the heart grow fonder. Less sour than I would have expected.

From old tasting notes. Deep reddish brown color. Rocky beige head. Tart assertive sour cherry malt nose. Wow, a big mouthfeel of sourness with wonderful fruity undertones. Outstanding and unique.

Draft pour at toronado seattle. Black cherry color pour cherry and raspberry aroma. Tart cherry juice flavor, smooth very easy to drink. Nothing to complex about this beer. That might be whats so good about it.

Unde (1011) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 7, 2017
Ruby red clear beer with long lasting slightly reddish hue head on top. Aroma has sweet cherries, red berries, sourness, slight barrel note and maybe oak. Sweet taste at first, sweet red berries, then cherry kicks in and wooden oak flavors linger underneath the cherry. Ending is slightly sour but overall more on the sweet side. Fullish body and low carbonation makes this so delicate beer to drink. Ill sit back and enjoy this for as long as I can. Glorious beer.
