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.

This beer is unbelievably fruity. Gushing with sweet cherries and lightly tart raspberry, mild tartness, awesome and well-balanced.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2017 Pleasantly acetic aroma, deep red fruits. Mouth cleansing sharp taste with cherries, wood, malt vinegar. Sweet aftertaste complements the sour early finish. Tasted at The Old Co-op, Darton, Barnsley, S75.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2017 Svårt att få nog av denna underbara öl. Den perfekta syran och sötman gifter sig så gott i munnen och njuter av den långa eftersmaken. Har bunkrat på mig denna öl innan den snart är slutsåld för i år ;)

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2017 delicious sour. cranberry, raspberry and cherry balance. low carbonation, low to medium head. good stuff

Hopmaestro (1749) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2017
Aroma is red berry fresh with hints of cherries and wet wood. Taste is driven by sour cherries, but also balanced out by a sweeter fruit base that never allows the beer to go full on sour. Sweet and sour notes keep together to the end, where a somewhat tart and dry finish takes over. Wooden notes comes creeping more and more for every sip. This is an absolutely amazing beer.

vincentvega72 (886) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2017 Fantastisch van kleur. Diep robijnrood. Mooie neus. Fris-zurig. Véél rood fruit (aardbei, kers, bessen). Drinkt heel lekker weg. Elke slok doet je verlangen naar een volgende slok. Fruitige rinse afdronk die redelijk lang blijft hangen. Absoluut topbier.

laakus (155) - Nossebro, - OCT 8, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2017 Pinkish red colour. Lots of sparkles. fizzy moutfeel, fruity, cherry and lots of sweetness dominating over the sourness. Some taste of oak can also be found. Splendid top notch aperitif I would call this!

Mister_Li (1564) - GERMANY - OCT 2, 2017
Klares Rot mit durchschnittlich Schaum. Sehr fruchtig, Kirschen, Waldbeeren, Himbeeren, säuerlich, leichte Holznoten, spritzig.

Heidbummer (881) - SCOTLAND - OCT 2, 2017
Keg, Brewdog Shepherds Bush. Pours cherry / russet, minimal head. Huge redfruit aroma, raspberry cremola foam. Tart, slightly spicy taste with masses of fruit. Yummy.

Sjohnh (1012) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2017
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, shared at a tasting. Colour is bergundy merging into brown. Small white head. Massively fruity nose. Body is light and refreshing. The cherry, raspberry and cranberry all come through, and it is predominantly sweet, with malt and acetic flavours sitting slightly behind.

rodenbachvintage (171) - Roeselare, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2017
Heerlijk complex zuurbier dankzij zijn bosvruchten & rodenbachbasis, De kersen maken het iets zoeter. de eik zorgt voor diepgang. Verfrissend dessertbier.
