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.

sulawang (1070) - British Columbia, CANADA - 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 (732) - 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 (1406) - 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).

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2016 Piana średnio obfita, niezbyt trwała. Barwa czerwona, lekko opalizująca. Intensywny aromat składa się przede wszystkim z nutek czerwonych owoc?w, wytrawnego czerwonego wina, starej beczki. W smaku kwaskowe, nieco w typie octu jabłkowego, intensywnie wiśniowe i malinowe, lekko winne, delikatna słodkość w typie suszonej żurawiny, na finiszu odrobina tanin, wanilii i zioł. Goryczka pestkowo pikantna, niewielka, wysycenie średnie do niskiego.
Faktycznie czuć, że jest to piwo zrobione z dużym zaangażowaniem, czuć kompleksowość, złożoność i potęgę czasu, w jakim trunek dojrzewał w beczkach... Klasa!

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2016 From Delh*** Nivelles :: Bottled 2013 >> Belle rouge aigre-douce aromatisée au fruits rouges et vieillie en fût. A mon palais les arômes fruitées jurent par trop sur le belle maturation boisée. Nez magnifique: la framboise et la cerise titillent en 1ers les narines. Arrivent ensuite quelques senteurs balsamiques accompagnées d’un maltage caramélisé doux sans amertume. D’abord acidulée, l’attaque devient fort fruitée charnue sans tomber dans la facilité du sirupeux. Au contraire: beaucoup de finesse également dans la rondeur équilibrée douce mais pas épaisse; cependant qui l’empêche de contre-balancer la présence virile des fruits. Quant aux saveurs boisées, elles se révèlent en en milieu de bouche avec finesse sur des notes vaguement vineuses aigrelettes qui accentuent l’acidité orginelle. Le tout marque le palais avec longueur, les fruits restant trop prégnant pour moi. #374

cinek (114) - POLAND - OCT 29, 2016
Tap/craftownia. Kolor wiśniowy, drobnopecherzykowa, brudno biala piana, pięknie oblepiające szkło, klarowne. W aromacie maliny prosto z krzaka, kwaśne wiśnie, jogurt wiśniowy. Początkowo nieznacznie słodkie, pózniej kwaśne i takie pozostaje na podniebieniu, alkohol pięknie ułożony, długi wisniowy finisz. Dodatek wiśni, malin mega!
