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.

75 cl bottle. Red, vinous, no head. Aroma of cherries, cranberries and other red fruits. A touch of wood. Starts sour with huge taste of cherries and fruits. Turns into sweet with an enormous cranberry finish.

750ml bottle (thx, Hugo V.!) shared with George on Greenpoint campground. Red brown with tan head. Aroma is very pleasant with raspberry, cherry, and candied berries notes. Same taste. Very good!

January 21, 2014 - with blankboy, jercraigs & mabel - 750ml corked & caged bottle. Bubbly clear ruby, fluffy beige head, pink edges. Sweet thick malt and wine vinegar aroma, quite floral as well - lactic and fruity. Taste is hugely floral, also sour cherry and alcohol. Thick, syrupy mouthfeel, finishes fairly quick, tingly and sticky - as often with these, you feel like it almost should be poured onto takeaway Chinese ...

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2017 Djupt mörkröd med tunt vitt skum. Doftar friskt och fruktigt av körsbär, lite citrus. Ren, torr smak, medelfyllig med körsbär och lite citrus. Lång, syrlig och distinkt eftersmak, lite sur i slutet.

A hazed reddish copper ale with a thin white head. In aroma, loads of cherries, cranberry, Epsom salts, lactic acid, beautiful and delicious. In mouth, a nice sweet tart cherry with light Epsom salts, light Brett, light cork, nice and complex. Bottle at Brother’s Beer Bistro.

Vynikající styl piva s ovocností a silným řízem, aromatem i pěnou. Vynikající. Tóny: červené víno, hrozny. Alkoholový nádech, jemnější chmelovost.

datrael (492) - Kraków, POLAND - JUN 9, 2017
W aromacie i smaku wiśnie, maliny, czereśnie, czerwone wino, trochę nalewki wiśniowej, bretty. Słodko-kwaśne z naciskiem na słodycz. Pijalność średnia, w wyglądzie czerwone z przyzwoitą kremową pianą. Dobry flanders, choć może nieco zbyt słodki

martin00sr (4035) - Haderslev, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2017
Tap @Mikkeller, Viktoriagade. Nearly clear red amber, thick and slightly pinkish head. Aroma has lots of sour, red berries. Sweetish, slightly acetic flavour, light acetone. Sweet red berries. Lovely. My 500th rating this month, think Ill give it a break now. Nah... just one more...

oberschlesier (64) - Kattowitz, UPPER SILESIA, - MAY 26, 2017
Aroma: vinegar (intense but not so intense as in Rodenbach Vintage or Duchesse de Bourgogne), red sour fruits notes. Taste and flavour: sour, vinegar, red fruits. Medium-high carbonation, but it is very pleasant here. Pretty color - mix of red and pink.
