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%

Aroma; cherries, berries, malts, prunes, cream, almond drips, vanilla. Look; pink'ish head, cherry red body, cork went up with a pop shot. Taste; juicy malts, cherries, berries, dark sour sweet fruits - solid fruity sweet finish. Feel; perfect body, normal carbonation, very juicy. Overall; naturally this brew is well rated. Great taste.

Mortlach (2511) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 24, 2017
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!

ogniskowicz (1068) - POLAND - SEP 23, 2017
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.

Sjohnh (1012) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2017
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.
