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%

LRonCupboard (64) - Belfast, NORTHERN IRELAND - JUN 2, 2017
Clear red/brown, decent size pinky head. Sweet 🍒 aroma. Bit of wood, maybe hint of balsamic vinegar - very pleasant, not massive complexity, though I do have a little sniffle. Lively carbonation, medium body. Sherberty sourness up front on tasting with a good dose of cherry and again, blast of balsamic and malt vinegar. Nice long finish - sweet/sour balance goes bit far towards 🍬 sweetness and away from dry tartness. It’s very good, but reckon score may be influenced by fact it used to be great? That said, Mrs Cupboard likes this and she thinks everything I drink is fermented sock water. A good thing maybe?!

tightslice (1280) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 1, 2017
Bottle from Hometown Spirits in Flowery Branch, GA. Aroma is berries, some vanilla, light funky oak. Taste is creamy yogurt with berries (strawberries, raspberries). Incredible mouthfeel with loads of fruit, oak, and then some minor funk. This stuff is awesome and so reasonably priced at around $10 for a bomber. Huge fan.

skortila (5820) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2017
Bottled. 25cl sample. The aroma has cherries, marzipan. Bit hazy, red coloured beer with a thin, white head. The taste is just a little sourish, bit sweet, very fruity with some marzipan. Very refreshing, easy stuff.

LiwkoLiwko (392) - POLAND - MAY 28, 2017
Klarowne. Rubinowa barwa. Trwała szampańska piana. Intensywny landrynkowy aromat. Wiśnie, kandyzowane ciemne owoce. Wyraźne octowe nuty. W smaku wiśnie. I skodko, i kwaśno. Dosyć wysoko nasycone. Duża butelka trochę męczy.

datrael (476) - Kraków, POLAND - MAY 27, 2017
W aromacie wiśnie, wino, czerwone owoce, nalewka wiśniowa, kwiaty, przyjemnie. W wyglądzie czerwone, mętne, z ładną białą pianą zdobiącą szkło. W smaku wiśniowe, pestkowe, winne, słodko-kwaśne. Do tego taniczność i octowość, nieco zbyt wysoka, pijalność średnia. Ogólnie ładny aromat, natomiast w smaku zbyt octowe, brakuje też nieco pijalności. Dobre piwo, ale liczyłem na więcej.

Aroma: delicate vinegar, maybe it is balsamic vinegar, cherries, hints of some sweet red fruits, balanced and cool. Taste: sour, cherries - fresh, nice. Pink to brown color. Head isn’t impressive, but it keeps till end of drinking. Balanced and nice at all. Classy.
