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.

Redish pinkish colour, pinkish head. Aroma of vingar, raspberries, strawberries, wood, red wine. Taste is medium sour, light sweet a lot of red berries and oak flavour. Light body, slick to thin texture, lively carbonation. Very impressive! Its the gift to myself for my 28th birthday.

axl (659) - Lund, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2016
750ml bottle, 2013 vintage. Dark red with light red head. Aroma is sweet raspberries, light raspberry marmelade, sour cherries, wood, light cranberries, a light touch of almond/marsipan and light vinegariness. Taste is similar with a nice balance of fruit sweetness and acidity with the full spectra of the fruits used, though with raspberries and cherries being most noticeable, and backed up by a nice woodiness with lighter almond/marsipan and red vinegar notes in the background. Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation and lasting intermingled fruit aftertaste.

Es un vinagre de frutos rojos añejo en madera con un aspecto difícilmente superable. En boca es larga y la acidez es más al primer golpe. Luego se comporta bastante bien. Una maravilla

sulawang (1099) - - DEC 1, 2016
2013 bottle, bought at Tobu Ikebukuro. Pours brownish red, ringed retention, very fast micro clustered streams. Fruity strawberry-cherry jam, natural and pungent. Immediate big tart fruity entry, deep cherry-raspberry-strawberry jammy, fruit vinegar, sour red berries, mellow malt, background woodiness. Wow this is incredibly interesting. Much better IMO than Cascade brews.

heman (776) - Tychy, POLAND - NOV 18, 2016
Barwa rubinowa, piwo lekko przymglone. Aromat zdominowany czerwonymi owocami: wiśnie, truskawki, lekko kwaśny. W smaku wyraźnie kwaśne, lekko octowe, dużo czerwonych owoców (wiśnie, truskawki, maliny) nieco nut ściągających, drewnianych. Złożone i pyszne.

beer-yum (1472) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 17, 2016
Tart aroma in a crimson pink pour. Taste is almost puckeringly tart to start - but berry fruit sweetness kicks in to save the day. Overall, a complex combination of ingredients and process makes for a benchmark of the style (albeit not one I’m a huge fan of).
