A blend of 1/3 young beer and 2/3 of beer aged 2 years in large oak vats. The more important proportion of oak matured beer contributes to its fruity taste, complexity and intensity. The finish is worthy of a great wine.

Bottle at home, from the Bottle Shop - Brugge, 22/01/13. Night of the (re-arranged) Rodenbach Grand Cru mass online tasting. Pours a lightly hazed deep crimson brown with a thin off white swirl of film and some bubbles at the edge of the glass. Still looking but inviting. Nose is wood, sour cherries, light fruity balsamics, tarte figgy jam. Taste comprises soured cherries, sweet and tarte red berries, sharp raspberries, some sugars, grandads shed, damp wood. Medium bodied, light spritzy carbonation, tarte and dry in the finish. Overall a great Flemish red!

Like the aroma of an aged wine. Pours a deep brown colour with light head. Flavour is spur initially then gives way to a sweet, textured finish—hint of its oak-aged container has made its way into the flavor profile too! Not quite what I was expecting but one of the better ‘sour beers’ I’ve tried. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Czerwone owoce, akcenty winne, ciut wanilii, octowy kwasek. Średnio treściwe, wytrawne, kwaśne, cierpkie. Goryczka niska, wysycenie wysokie, musujące. Nie do końca moje klimaty, ale warto było spróbować.

jsmerig (1656) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2017
Pours a cloudy caramel brown. Aroma of tart cherries. Taste is sour up front with a bit of earthy funk in the middle finishing with a bit of smoked malt. Less on the refreshing side bit my cup of tea ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poures brown and a bit of red, with high head at start which disappears quickly. No lace and only a little of carbonization. Smell at first reminds me of sour vine probably brett, a bit of forest honey and higher alcohols like acetone. Taste like vinegar, sournes really hits you especially at the end of a jaw for a brief moment. It is refreshing , but one is quite enough for a while.

Bottle, pours clear amber with no head. Aroma of red fruits red wine, caramel and winegar. Fruity and very sour.

God geef ons ons dagelijks bier. De Grand Cru heeft alles. heerlijke acide geur, volmondig romige smaak met een perfecte aciditeit voor een zwoele zomeravond gecombineerd met de unieke smaak door de oude eiken vaten. Dit is werelderfgoed.

Gęsty, treściwy kwach wiśniowy ładnie zbalansowany słodyczą, klasyka muzyki poważnej, by tak rzec. Sączmy, nikt nie woła.

La espuma desaparece r�pido y el aroma es escaso y se nota la maduraci�n en madera, recuerda al vino tinto. Color rojo cereza muy bonito. Sabor �cido y nada amargo, como el de la sidra, y regusto a madera. Tiene muchos matices y no est� mal, aunque no es mi estilo favorito.
