COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brewer allow the beer to macerate with fresh cherries, raspberries and cranberries. After this maceration in oak, the beer re-ferments in the bottle. The result is RODENBACH Caractère Rouge, an exceptional RODENBACH with fruit maceration and a 7% alcohol volume. The brew is more than unique and extremely exclusive, as only 900 75-cl bottles were produced. Geunes serves this wilful beer as part of his other unique range of beer varieties in his restaurant, ’t Zilte, at the Antwerp MAS museum.

Dahlstrom (383) - Nygatan 29, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2016 Clowdy red with a medium white/reddish head. Strong aroma of berries, followed by light caramel and oak. Taste reflects the aroma, with a medium sourness. Low to medium body, dry texture. Medium carbonation.

Tap @Lawendowa 8 Gdańsk. Berry aromas- a lot of them! Like all the berries in the world went for a party and started a mosh-pit with some herbs and spices... Seems that dark chocolate went for that party too, was not feeling for a mosh-pit, enjoyed watching and got lost somewhere in the crowd. Pours dark, reddish copper with off white head. The taste is fruity sourness of berries (raspberries mostly) and some malty underlying sweetness. Very tasty. Sparkling wine style carbonation. Overall a lovely beer. Would drink it again gladly!

Fantastiskt vacker röd färg med rosa skum. I doften finns massor av syrliga bär, mest märks tranbären men tydliga toner av hallon och körsbär finns där också. Maffig smak med mycket tranbär men även lite sötare hallon och körsbär i en bra balans, inte översyrlig utan fin balans mellan syra och sötma.

samires (115) - POLAND - JUL 11, 2016
In aroma cranberries, some strawberries, rapsberries, cherries and some tingy herbal mintyness, some woody undertones, little wild notes and spicy notes. Deep red, clear colour with small pink head. In taste- beer changes as it warms up, at first there are some cranberries/rapsberries with spicy notes in the back and some minty/herbal and wild undertones and tart woody finish (which lasts to aftertaste). After a while on the first place comes some cherries mixed with rapsberries. Medium carbonation, medium body.

rumproasts (5342) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Tap. Deep reddish amber with small head. Huge tart berry, like a fruit explosion. Light oak. Really great stuff, but I’d still give the nod to vintage.

Maakun (5405) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2016
Tap at De Paas. Slight hazy red with light brown hue and creamy pink head. Looks amazing. Overripe red fruit, typical Rodenbach oxidized sherry with light glue, fresh respberries, cherry juice, some berry pits, dead leaves, hay, white grape skins. Medium sour and sweet. Medium bodied with slick feel and soft prickly champagne like carbonation. Lovely beer.

tricksta_p (4560) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2016
From tap at In De Wildeman, Amsterdam. Aroma is loads of tart cherries and berries, mild oak, sourish red fruits. Flavour is tart and mild sour with a nice little sweetness. Body is medium. Lovely sweet/sour flavour and lots of tart red fruits, great beer.

On bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika October 2014. Red color, good foam. High aroma intensity; cherries, raspberries, some notes of stable and good fruitiness. Medium body & complexity. Good sourness, balances well. Very enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

visionthing (5296) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 17, 2016
75cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks a lot! Pours hazy caramel brown, some reddish notes and a fairly small, off-white head. Delicious aroma of sour berries with some wooden and slightly earthy notes, hints of dried fruits and malt. Sour, fruity and complex with lovely flavour of raspberries and cherries and a nicely sour finish. Delicious stuff!
