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%

Big thanks to Goldtwins who gave me this bottle about five years ago. Im sure sitting on it isnt doing it any favors so Ive decided to celebrate Alabamas National Championship by opening this. Pours a Coca-Cola caramel color with deep red highlights. A quickly dissipating head, also reminiscent of Coca-Cola. Fruity aromas fill the room simply from the pour. Somewhat biscuity, cherry aroma. Tart and leathery. Cherries, sweet malt and balsamic flavors. Slight notes of tobacco. Pretty thick mouthfeel. Much better years ago but still a nice beer. Overly acetic. Vinegar and malt. Acidic aftertaste. Roll Tide!!

Bottle at Heeren Van Liedekercke. Pours clear red with a lacing beige head. Loved the condens on the glass. Aroma is sour cherries, fruits, candy. Taste is sour and cherries again, vanilla, and a bit candy. Good one to finish my evening at HvL.

jfb (6105) - GERMANY - APR 24, 2017
(draught) ruby-amber in colour with a frothy semi-pink head. aroma of acetone, cherry pips and vanilla icing, with lots of rotten apricots, msli grain and white chocolate. flavour is mostly tart cherries, straw and coca-cola, with more acetone, a touch of green apple and a semi-dry finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation. disappointing!

Snifter on tap at Pazzos. Lots of cherry with a bit of tartness and some burgundy flavors. Just avoids being too sweet for me.

markwise (5414) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2017
Bottle from 2016 release. Pours an amber-ruby with a small off-white head. Nose is cherries, vanilla, oak, vinous character, sour cherries, and balsamic vinegar. Flavor is similar with cherries all over, balsamic vinegar, nice malt character and an earthy vanilla with some vinous character. Light to medium in body, layered in complexity, and reminiscent of a Shirley temple with some wine and balsamic vinegar.

From Cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. Watching Los Soprano 6x11. Good. The sour cherries are well adjusted,but miss more body, complexity and oak notes. High yet pleasant carbonation

Klar, brnstens-rd, orange-rtt skum. Doft: Malt, sta hallon, st rabarber, ek, funk, halm, lite stall, krbrs krnor. Svag 8:a. Smak: Som doft fast stare och tydlig Rodenbach smak. Lite fr st tycker jag, men allt passar bttre ihop efter dom frsta "klunkarna". D sttman inte r lika tydlig lngre.
