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.

750 ml bottle thanks to Michael! Clear dark amber red color with off white pinkish head. Fruity aroma, sweet and light tart cherries, berries, some funky barnyard notes, wood. Sweet and light acidic taste like aroma. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.

Cherry, caramel and wooden notes, with some underlying herb notes which are too subtle to recognize. Still some residual sweetness, which nicely balances the acidity.

Deep red colour. Aroma and flavour have an abundance of sweet and sour red fruits. Especially a prominent cherry taste. A good sweet -sour balance.

It is a fruit beer with distinct flavor and aroma of cherry, cranberries and raspberries. It is sour and vinous, but at the end it also has a gentle tender sweetness from raspberry.

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!

HogTownHarry (7010) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2017
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.
