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 (4597) - 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!

skortila (5733) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2017
Bottled. 25cl sample. The aroma has cherries, marzipan. Bit hazy, red coloured beer with a thin, white head. The taste is just a little sourish, bit sweet, very fruity with some marzipan. Very refreshing, easy stuff.

LiwkoLiwko (331) - POLAND - MAY 28, 2017
Klarowne. Rubinowa barwa. Trwała szampańska piana. Intensywny landrynkowy aromat. Wiśnie, kandyzowane ciemne owoce. Wyraźne octowe nuty. W smaku wiśnie. I skodko, i kwaśno. Dosyć wysoko nasycone. Duża butelka trochę męczy.

datrael (449) - Krakw, POLAND - MAY 27, 2017
W aromacie wiśnie, wino, czerwone owoce, nalewka wiśniowa, kwiaty, przyjemnie. W wyglądzie czerwone, mętne, z ładną białą pianą zdobiącą szkło. W smaku wiśniowe, pestkowe, winne, słodko-kwaśne. Do tego taniczność i octowość, nieco zbyt wysoka, pijalność średnia. Oglnie ładny aromat, natomiast w smaku zbyt octowe, brakuje też nieco pijalności. Dobre piwo, ale liczyłem na więcej.

oberschlesier (28) - Kattowitz, UPPER SILESIA, - MAY 26, 2017
Aroma: delicate vinegar, maybe it is balsamic vinegar, cherries, hints of some sweet red fruits, balanced and cool. Taste: sour, cherries - fresh, nice. Pink to brown color. Head isnt impressive, but it keeps till end of drinking. Balanced and nice at all. Classy.

750 ml bottle shared by Tmoney99 from notes. Pours a clear dark reddish copper color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have tart cherries, light acidity, more acetic, sweet notes, oak, red wine, light funk, the cherry character grows, nice complexity, very well done, Im glad that I finally got to try this.
