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.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2017 Caña en t Brugs beertje, Brugge 09..09..2017. (r798). Color rojizo intenso oscuro con espuma rojiza oscuro que desaparece al poco dejando pequeňa corona. Sabores intensos afrutados con ligeros acidos y frutos del bosque. Toques de maderas empapadas. Caramelos suaves, azúcares. Cuerpo medio a intenso con buena sensación alcohólica desde el principio. Fino ligeramente ácido y seco al final. Bastante buena para repetir sin duda.

From notes. Enjoyed with ebone1988 and Gus at Gus’s abode on August 27 for what Eric so eloquently called the "It’s My Birthday, and I’ll Get Drunk and Piss Myself if I Want to" Bash. 750 mL bottle, 2013 vintage. The pour is a nice darker garnet color with a lighter tan head and a few spots of soapy lace as it recedes. The aroma is interesting. There is a heavy jamminess to this one. Lots of raspberry and cranberry with the cherries coming in a little late. The funkiness behind this is pretty strong as well. The flavor is just as good. Jammy up front with a light tartness and the berries roll together. The funk and oak offer a good deepening complexity, and the finish is tart and bright. The mouth feel is medium bodied with a bright carbonation and a lingeringly tart and funky jam on the back end. This is pretty solid. 8 4 8 4 16

Bottle shared with koleminer20 and Gus for the "It’s My Birthday, and I’ll Get Drunk and Piss Myself if I Want to" Bash. 2013 Vintage. Bottle from Merchants. Aroma is jammy, raspberries, cherries, slight cranberry, wood, tart, slight funk, real nice. Appearance is reddish brown, light light tan head, slightly hazy. Taste is also jammy, raspberry, cranberry, cherry, woody, sweet but tart, red wine, very very nice. Mouthfeel is medium body, light crisp carbonation, tart woody jammy fruit aftertaste. Overall, I really really like this.

Bottle. The newest batch and aged it for a few months. Oak, sharp acidic notes, vanilla and sour sharp cherry in both flavor and aroma. Deeper oaky note. Lighter to medium body.

Hatu (5) - Zürich, SWITZERLAND - AUG 21, 2017 does not count
Raspberries and some cherries with a touch of funk as aromas. Taste is some more raspberries and cherries with notes of wood surrounded by mild sourness. Crazy long-lasting sour and fruity finish. Dry. Medium body and carbonation. Awesome.

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.

Well-balanced fruity taste. Moderately sour in the beginning followed by high sweetness of berries. Fantastic!
