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%

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.

Bouteille. Brune-rouge, assez foncé, claire, mince mousse blanche-beige. Arôme très légèrement acétique, fruité, fruits sucrés. En bouche, acidulée, les cerises se manifestent, pas trop acétique, belle balance. C'est vraiment bon et facile à boire.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2018 Rodenbach alexander Pours an orangish red with a pink head. The smell is juicy cherries, rich and delightful. A cherry explosion, fresh and juicy...amazing! The body is light+ with one carbonation. Great! 4,8,9,4,17

ElDesmadre (4446) - Mikołów, POLAND - FEB 13, 2018
Draught at WFP, September 2017. Red fruit jelly, cherries, blackcurrant, redcurrant, chokeberry, hint of pomegranate, medium tart yet smooth mouthfeel, light astringent, hint of marzipan. Only a marginal acetic note in the finish prevents it from orbiting together with the most stellar beers in existence. Absolutely amazing and worthy of its praise.

Cloudy red pour with a single finger head, slightly pink in color. Aroma of cherries, oak, vanilla. Cherry dominant for sure. Just a massive amount of fruit. Great tartness, but not overwhelming. A little lace present. Medium bodied. Excellent beer.
