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%

Martinus (4692) - 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 isn’t disappointing! Couldn’t be happier!

Mariox (295) - 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.
