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%

Martinus (4569) - Baarle-Nassau, - FEB 5, 2013
Clear reddish brown colour, small white head. Light sour aroma, cherries, caramel, yoghurt and raisins. Quite sour flavour, still a slight sweet touch, light cherry syrup. Sweet finish, raisins, malts and old fruit.
Very nice! Long time want, and it isnt disappointing! Couldnt be happier!

Tap. Cleanish but same cherry brown. Lots of sweet and sour cherry, light oak, some slight sour vinegar but very smooth, touch sweet and really well balanced. Lighter to medium slick body.

MarcoDL (4493) - 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.

Jayb0 (1177) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - FEB 12, 2017
Bottle. Fabulous, the blending and the cherries takes the sour edge off and creates a really well balanced beer. Cherries come through and mingle with the malt, the finish is exceptionally smooth and blurrs the lines between beer and wine.
