COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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%

92 vintage from De Heeren van Liedekercke. This has held up exceptionally well. I expected much more acetic flavor. After 15 years, its still quite sweet. Wonderful interplay between sweet and sour. Very smooth, much more so than the 98. Something in the aroma that I cant quite place, similar to vanilla. Very good carbonation. Crystal clear. 7,50! Cheap!!

Silvan7 (1192) - Samarate, ITALY - FEB 21, 2017
On tap @ Beer Attraction Rimini. Ramato carico, con riflessi rosso rubino. Schiuma beige, quasi nocciola, finissima e di breve persistenza. Aroma intenso, molto complesso. Frutta rossa matura, ciliege,legno/vaniglia, lamponi, aceto, caramello, melassa e vino rosso. Dolce amabile nel primo sorso, diventa subito acida, decisamente aspra, acetica, ma le note caramellate, legnose, speziate di vaniglia, la arrotondano perfettamente. Poco spigolosa per lo stile, astringenza attenuata, calda, corposa, scivolosa sulla parete della bocca. Equilibrata e perfettamente armonica.

GG, Seattle. Slightly pink soft ring, juicy burgundy red body. Slightly sweet, nice cherry skin funk on nose. Smooth body, mild alcohol soaked cherries, rum, earthy ruddy base. Lovely, fruity complexity. Mild cherry tartness, modest sweet that is well countered. Refined and tasty.

MarcoDL (4499) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2017
Bottle at tasting, 2016 edition. Aroma of sweet cherry lemonade and candy, what is going on here? Unfortunately, the flavor is really sweet as well, with sweet cherry lemonade, only faint tart, cherry candy and subtle sourness. This is not better than a liefmans kriek. Why is this so highly rated? Why?!

Its a little mineral-y on the palette, but otherwise this is a fantastic sour beer.
