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.

Pours reddish brown with a low off white head. Aeomas of raspberries, cherries, redcurrant, funk, almond, citrus. Taste is cherries, raspberries, redcurrant, slight roasted notes, citrus, almond, funk. Mouthfeel is dry, tart and sparkling with medium carbonation. Great stuff!

Luk_ (243) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle. Red- brown pour with small white head. Aroma is cassis, cranberries, cherries, red wine vinegar, date and oak. Taste is very fruity (raspberry, cherries, cranberries), balsamic vinegar, grape skin and lemongrass. Sirupy with decent carbonation. As a flanders red fan, it is a personal favourite.

JBPortland (1564) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2014
750ml bottle pours semi clear bright red with a small fizzy head that fades fast. Nose is very vinous, lots of red wine characteristics met with some sweet tart fruity mixed berry, just a hint of oak. Taste is bright and spritzy with some earthy berry and red wine grape, tart balanced acidity, cranberry soda/juice. Finish is tart, some sweet crushed berries and light oaky vanilla with more of the red wine notes swirling. Nicely done but lacked the top-tier complexity I was hoping for.

Pyrmir (6210) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2014
On tap during Brussels vacation, vintage 2014. Red color with bright pinkish head. Aroma of cherry and cranberry, tart notes, fruity with faint woody notes. Taste is fruity and tart, cherries, tart notes, distorted malt notes with a fruity and sour finish. Really nice beer

mabel (9787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
[6140-20140121] Bottle. Pungent minty raspberry aroma. Clear, red amber body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Super fruity cherry sour raspberry stems flavour has almost a dry stone cranberry note. Medium-full bitter body. Strange but also kind of wonderful. (8/4/9/4/17) 4.2

Overheard: "Airelles?" "Cranberries." "My guess was poison... I was wrong."

Mortlach (2510) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 12, 2014
750ml bottle shared @La Tana (Rome). Rossa viva e intensa, magnifica, schiuma bianca non molto abbondante. Al naso meravigliosi sentori vinosi e di frutta rossa, ciliegie, note di sottobosco e mentuccia, fragolina di bosco. In bocca è complessa e appagante, intensa, acida decisa, vinosa e leggermente acetica, stemperata e ingentilita dal fruttato, anche note di melograno e ribes. Corpo medio, carbonazione media. Una grandissima birra!

KnutAlbert (6792) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 10, 2014
Bopttle from Vinmonopolet. Clowing red, no carbonation to speak of. Lovely blend of berries and sour beer, everything feels fresh and true to the ingredients.

wiosna (591) - - DEC 9, 2014
0,75 [email protected] OPP. Sameahko punertavan ruskea, hiukan kastanjanruskea. Ei näy vaahtoa. Tuoksussa hapanta marjaa, aavistus sherrya, kirsikkaa ja vadelmaa. Maussa hapanta kirsikkaa, loppupuolella vadelmaa, makeutta, kivasti sievästi hiilihappoa. Ainoa miinus omalta osalta se, ettei ole "olutmaisempaa" .

Kavu (5129) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 9, 2014
0,75l bottle @ One Pint Pub. Pours clear red with a low head. Aroma is sour berries. Flavor is sour berries with a sweet aftertaste of fresh berries. None of the acidity of lambics. Great.
