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%

Bottle, 750 ml, shared with JFK10000, Max, Simon. Pours hazy deep red with medium white head. Cherries, vinous, wood, some vinegar notes, moderate+ acidity. Medium bodied. Not bad, but Character Rouge remains my favorite.

Michcio (908) - Gdansk, POLAND - OCT 22, 2017
Barwa ciemnoczerwona, rubinowa, niemal klarowne, piana lekko zabrudzonej bieli, umiarkowanie obfita, nawet nieźle się trzyma. W aromacie wiśnia, nieco winnie, nuty kwaśne. W smaku dużo nut wiśniowych, czerwone wino, nuty kwaśno-octowe na poziomie do umiarkowanego. Po przełknięciu lekkie taniny, spora przyprawowość w stylu belgjiskim. Wysycenie w normie, sporo treści, pije się bardzo dobrze. Bardzo dobry flandersik, konkretny, choć jak dla mnie nieco za dużo wiśnia się tu udziela, która podbija słodycz. Niemniej jednak piwo, które trzeba spróbować.

Mariox (298) - Warsaw, POLAND - OCT 1, 2017
Świetny aromat winny, wiśniowy, czerwonych owoców oraz drzewnych nut beczki. W smaku idealny balans pomiędzy słodyczą, a kwaśnością. Goryczka znikoma. Przyjemny wiśniowy, lekko kwaskowy finisz. Wysycenie niewielkie. Dość treściwe i zarazem bardzo pijalne. Wspaniałe piwo. Według mnie póki co najlepsze w stylu.
