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.

KoNrRiI (1415) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2016

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.

mateuszk (2668) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 12, 2016
Bottle. Pours nice red in colour with small pinky head. Aroma of fresh berries, cherries with light (really just a touch) vinegar. In taste fruit in a fantastic way, cranberries and tart cherries upfront then light vinegar, funk and wood. Medium body, moderate carbonation, dry and fruity tart finish. Maybe it was really fresh bottle but it was all about fruitiness with a touch of funk and tartness and not sourness, vinegar, funkiness. Fantastic mix, very light, fruity an easy drinkable.

jinroh (1456) - ESTONIA - SEP 9, 2016
This is from the first batch, one of those 900 bottles you can read about in the description. Aged for years.Thank you Shuichi! Pours red, not really much carbonation there. Aroma of cherries, cranberries. Nicely fruity and light sourness. Taste is full of flavours, sour, some vinegar, strawberries, cherries. Silent but deadly, fully satisfying. No sharp edges but I guess that comes from the age. Aftertaste is dry, initial sweetness is still there but tannins are doing their work. I love that silent aggressive balance that this beer has.

ulrikolsen (571) - DENMARK - SEP 4, 2016
Bottle. Pours hazy red brown with quickly fading beige head. Aroma is light sour fruity with cherries and raspberry yet malty with some caramel notes. Taste is complex and has winey character with cherry, raspberry and malty, caramel and slightly dried fruity notes to the dry end of this fantastic beer. Also tasted on tap at Søernes.

BOTTLE. Gold to ruby pour with a ruby/white head.. Insane sweet nose, hard boiled lollies, all the berries, fruit liquorice, woodiness from the barrel all combined.. Balance of sweet & tart berry flavour through out, good zesty sour kick to finish.. Sourced Cape Cellars

MadRobin (2929) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - AUG 12, 2016
On tap at Whole Foods at Fairfax Corner in Fairfax, VA. Very hazy, chestnut-red with a thin pink-white head and fair to sparse lacing. Aroma of big time berries, cherries and balsamic vinegar. Taste of mashed mixed berries, balsamic vinegar and cherries. Medium body and medium/low carbonation with a smooth, light mouthfeel that pairs well with the fruity flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml bottle poured at Eugene’s farewell tasting. Thanks! Very fun try. Reddish orange pour with no head. Lighter cherry aroma. Flavor is a larger cherry pie like character, with a smooth, wonderfully tart and sweet complimented finish. Memorable, and excellent on all counts. Loved it.
