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 clear ruby red with a white head. - Lovely .. Aroma has lots of fruity candy, raspberry, sweet cherry, very weak tart note behind and maybe some grapes. Taste is fresh, sweet and fruity with strawberry, raspberry, gummibears, grapes, maybe a bit of vanilla, rather dry and weak tart but no brett or funky notes. Easy drinkable and a nice summerbeer indeed.

Damn. This beer is interstellar, and despite the growth in great sours in the US, we see here they still need to take some lessons from the classics. Sweet and sour. First the sour, it's not overwhelming punch in the mouth sour, but a nice "right there" tartness, acetic in nature with a tinge of balsamic flavor. The sweet is not malt, as the beer is attenuated nicely, giving it a semi-dry finish and lighter palate. The sweet is a rich blend of fruits, I guess the cranberries and cherries stand out but on the whole it's really just a nice element of fruitiness. Cloudy, sedimented pour, reddish-brown, small head.

Pour hazy red/brown with a white head. Aroma of cherries, cranberries, malt vinegar with an earthy backbone. Taste is light sweet and medium sour.

On tap @Ølfred - Aarhus Streetfood. Pours hazy red. The scent is filled with cherries. Sour in the beginning, you feel it in the jaws. Later the raspberry takes over, which makes it sweeter towards the end. It’s like sour red berry lemonade. The texture Is oily.

Bouteille 750 ml. Couleurorangée-rougeâtre, mousse blanche. Arômes de fruits rouges assez puissants, je reconnais principalement la cerise. Un sent un peu la barrique. En bouche, effervescence moyenne, adéquate, notes de fruits rouge, framboises, acidulée, un peu de cerise, notes vineuses, un peu de bois, un bel équilibre. C'est excellent, très fruitée, acidulée, légèrement sucrée.

Barwa miedziana, piana spora. Aromat lekko winny, owoce wiśni, żurawiny, maliny. Lekkie drewno, karmel i delikatna wanilia. W smaku mega intensywna malina, żurawina, wiśnia. Do tego subtelny karmel, wanilia. Wszystko to zakończone kwaśnym pestkowym, winnym finiszem i cierpkim drewnem. Pifko mega zbalansowane i takie dostojne. Świetne pifko.

Bottle, bbf 15-05-2020. Color: Clear red, firm light pink head. Taste: Wow! Very nice mix of sweetish and sour taste, combined with complex fruit notes of cherries, raspberrFull body y and cranberries. It's very nice that you can taste each fruit seperately in each sip. Hints of wood. The fruit makes the Flemish red tasting somewhat sweeter. Let each sip slowly roll through your mouth for full flavors Full body, soft carbonation. Superb!

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2017 Rød farge med høyt rosa skum. lukter av bringebærdrops. sprudlende med kirsebær og bringebær i smaken. syrlig avslutning som sitter lenge. meget god

Uwielbiam takie piwa. Bardzo z?o?one w aromacie i czas smaku. Pocz?tkowy ocet winny w zapachu szybko zmienia si? w mas? owoc�w - czere?nie, maliny, nuta drewna. W smaku mocno wysycone, owocowe, lekko kwa?ne, ale to odczucie si? zmienia. Do ?redniego. Ciut czekolady w posmaku. Kompleksowe i pyszne.
