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.

Röd och nästan stilla. Intensiv doft med körsbär. Ett djup i smakerna och en trevlig surhet. En riktigt fin öl ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ClarkVV (6862) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle, unsure of the date, drunk at the Return of the Belgian Beer Fest, 9/17/16.
Dark purple-crimson body shows good clarity and a fleeting, purple-tinged beige head.
Tart berries in the nose combine with very light acetic notes, oak and a waxy/chalky note, that, while reducing the brightness, isn’t off-putting and is kind of interesting. The force of the nose is poignant fruits with some softer, sweeter malts behind it and a strong vinous character. Interesting, and no flaws or alcohol, but like many of their beers lately, it seems like they are designed to actually blossom with age, as they’re just too rich, compact and overly fruity when fresh/relatively fresh.
Tart, not terribly sour, with tons of varied red fruits and surprisingly more cranberry than expected. Some grape character mixes in and there is a fair amount of oak tannin, light caramel malt and tight carbonation creating a substantial body. Malic and acetic acids tickle and then pucker the mouth on the finish with cranberry and cherry lingering. Would like to revisit in about 2-4 years.

Darught @ Søernes Ølbar. Reddish with a slight pinkish white head. Fruiry/berry aroma with lime notes. Sweet and tart berry flavours mix citrussy notes and alcohol warmth. Lovely beer.

One of the original 900 bottles shared. Thanks Shuichi! Huge tart cherry and raspberry nose with oak. Everything is so well-integrated on the palate. Smooth and creamy vanilla and berries. Super fruity. Sweet, but not overly so at all. Very approachable and has a well-balanced body. Great stuff!

0.75 bottle.
A very hazy, crimson color with a small, off-white head of good retention. A pungent aroma of wine, strawberries, acidic tones of fermentation, wild yeasts, and delicate hints of ash and tobacco. Taste is sweet and sour, very fruity, mouthwatering, delicately smacking of earth. A medium body, an oily texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is long, sour, more woody and ashy; the fruits have undergone a sudden change and now taste much more fermented going in the direction of Balkan fruit liquors. Overall a great beer, well-balanced and simply drinkable.
