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.

Very good beer of its kink. Rich taste and a good body. A beer to enjoy on a hot day, or in a freezing winterafternoon.

It pours reddish brown with an off white head. The aroma has cherries, raspberries, lush fruit flesh and mild sourness. It has a medium body with semi sharp carbonation. The taste has the aroma with spice, pithiness and sharp fruits. Excellent.

Geschonken als compensatie wegens een misverstand in de communicatie op hun website over de 750 genummerde Rodenbach Alexander flessen waarbij de indruk werd gewekt dat deze 750 flessen die online werden verkocht de enige beschikbare zouden zijn op de Belgische markt. Excuses aangenomen. Deze afgehaald bij mijnbierdoos.be op 18/11/2016. En geproefd op 21-01-2017. Rodenbach Caractere Rouge / 2013 is een rood-bruin (EBC 65) en helder biertje. Het schuim heeft een licht roze kleur en bij het uitschenken krijg je een normale hoeveelheid van, het vormt een gelijkmatige laag op het bier maar slaat zeer vlug neer, het gaat snel bijna helemaal weg, er blijft slechts een ietsie pietsie van over. Ook een normale wandkleving genoteerd. Rodenbach Caractere Rouge / 2013 heeft een zoet en fruitig aroma, ik moet denken aan framboos en natuurlijk krieken. Dit aroma wordt na een tijdje steeds sterker. De smaak is zuur, en licht zoetig, ook de frambozen en de krieken zitter erbij. Kwa mondgevoel geeft Rodenbach Caractere Rouge / 2013 een volle smaak, is hij wat bitterdroog, volmondig van textuur en komt hij wat prikkelend over (misschien door het zure?). Alles tesamen is Rodenbach Caractere Rouge / 2013 een harmonieus biertje te noemen ondanks dat het zure het zoete wat overheerst. De nasmaak vloeit wat uit en is zoetig, zuur en lichtjes droog, de krieken en nu ook de veenbessen zitten er in. Rodenbach Caractere Rouge / 2013 is niet slecht, maar hij zou toch wat zoeter mogen zijn. Ik denk wel dat hij heel ideaal is om er gerechten mee te bereiden.

Tap @ Dunkels. Pours hazy red with a small pink head. Aroma of jammy raspberry, bubblegum, funk, tannis, woody. Taste is rather sour with loads of fruits and dry barrel.

tfredvik (1859) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2017
Clear, medium amber to red body with an off-white head that sticks to the glass. Strong aroma of raspberries, strawberries and other sweet red berries, and a perfect amount of caramel. Strong flavour of cherries, raspberries and caramel, with some marzipan and almonds in the back. There is a close to perfect balance between berries on one side and yeast and malt on the other, I often find beers with fruits to be completely dominated by adjunct. The taste is moderate to light sweet and light acidic. Mid-bodied, smooth texture and moderate carbonation. A lovely brew!

Served in a Rodenbach flute on tap at the Hop Alley (GA) brewpub. Beautiful presentation (the appropriate glassware helps here), with a pinkish white head over a hazy red-copper colored body. The color does suggest fresh pressed red cherries. The rich aroma is tart and fruity with a pronounced cherry note and hints of ripe berries.. Flavor: tart and fruity with lots of sour cherry and hints of berries and ripe, pitted fruits. A brief bit of sweetness up front. Mouthfeel: medium-full body with soft, medium-light carbonation. Refined.
