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.

Words can’t really describe this beer. Incredible aroma, incredible flavor--you taste cranberries and cherries, and just the right amount of sour.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2014 Remarkable. This beer is just too close to perfect. Tangy sour aroma and taste is full of cherry and oak. Lots of fruit in the taste too. Incredibly well balanced. I can?t praise this enough. My first perfect 5.

undescribable? A very fruity ’simple’ Rodenbach. Best i ever had, at cellar temp, makes the taste even smoother

Pours dark ruby with short-lived tan head. Aroma is raspberry, cherry, strawberry, hibiscus and milk chocolate. Very vinous, very dry and very sour, with no bitterness whatsoever.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2017 Cloudy reddish brown colored, moderate head, good lace/retention. Aroma is fruity with notes of strong cranberry and raspberry, but also sour cherry. The usual notes you’d expect like vinegar and oak barrel are present as well, this is Rodenbach we are talking about. Medium bodied, moderate to high acidity with a fruity sweetness to match it; it certainly has Caractere. Alexstrasza is the ’red’ (get it?) dragon that brings life and hope, this gives me hope that Palm will bring life to more great sours. An absolute world beater. The best beer I have ever had. If you read this please send me a bottle of Alexander and I’ll make it worth your time. EDIT: Despite Alexander’s history and reputation, this is better. Related: send me this instead. :)
