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.

Aroma has some cherries, but they are a but musty and muted. Appearance is very dark, almost opaque, reddish-brown. Thin, light grey lingering head. I prefer the flavor of the regular Rodenbach to this one. This is very tart and sour, with some vinegar, cherry, cranberry and red wine. It seems that the oak has added a dank, barnyard quality. Very complex and reminiscent of a gueuze in some aspects.

330ml bottle. Pours mahogany with a thin watery head. The aroma is sweet malts, berries, oak, cognac. The taste is full flavoured, medium sweet and medium sour. Cough drops and light vinegar. Really unusual and very good.

Murky red colour. Wine cherry aromas. Balanced complex flavours, oaked cherry taste, nice and delicate.

33 cl. bottle @ Home. Aroma: not very intense aromas of wort, apple, apple cider, wood, vinegar, acetic acid. Appearance: dark brown color with beige creamy head made of small bubbles. Under average head thickness. Low retention. No Brussels lacing. Its quite dark but it seems to be clear. Taste: low sweetness, low bitterness, medium sourness. Flavors of wort, wood, vinegar, acetic acid, acidic wine, apple, apple cider, fruits. Its sour but not too much. The sourness makes it fresh and refreshing. Palate: low-to-medium body, watery-to-oily texture, low carbonation, quite long dry-sour finish of vinegar, apple cider, wort, wood, apple, acetic acid, fruits. Overall: good beer. Not very intense aromas but quite intense flavors of apple cider, apple, vinegar, acetic acid, wood, fruits. Sourness is not overwhelming, making the beer fresh and refreshing. Im not used to this style yet but its very pleasant despite its medium sourness.

Cerveza no demasiado cida, que se deja saborear, donde destaca sabores a manzana.

GrandCru Rodenbach Zapach kwaśne, jabłuszka pieczone, wiśnia Smak najpierw kwaśne, potem wchodzi słodko, jabłuszko zielone. Jest kwaśne, jednak pięknie kontrowane przez słodycz, wielowymiarowe, nie jest płaskie. Duzo bardziej podeszło niz lambici. Niesamowicie ciekawe piwo, świetne!

Bouteille achete chez Intercaves. Nez vinaigr, bouche aigre de vinaigre de fruit. Impossible de finir la bouteille... Cest pas mon truc !

Bottle 33. Bire un peu trouble quasi sans mousse. Nez typique de la Rodenbach mme si cela fait bien 30 ans que je nen ai plus bu/senti (vinaigre amlior ou vin dtrior ?). Bouche : sans crevettes pour faire passer, hyper acidit typique la limite de lagression buccale. Cela sent le fruit et lalcool, cela tue le palais mais cela mritait tout de mme dtre bu, une dernire fois ...

Hmmm, une bonne Rodenbach Grand Cru et son got inimitable de balsamique... Brune opaque, trouble, avec sa fine mousse bulles de Champagne couleur ivoire. Le nez est tout un programme et peut clairement rebuter le botien qui croira avoir une bire qui a trs mal tourn... Les armes de bois de chne avec les notes de balsamique sont impressionnantes, et en respirant profondment on trouve les notes de mlasse, de cuir, dorange, de malt, de noix, de raisin, de pomme verte... En bouche la carbonatation est trs vive, lalcool sobre, la texture ptillante et un peu sche, tandis que lamertume est franche et astringente, tel un vin sur lequel cette bire tend ressembler sur son final. Ce dernier est bien long, avec un alcool et une acidit qui se ressentent longuement. Alors oui, cette Grand Cru est une curiosit en matire de Sour Beer et une rfrence. Pour ma part, jaime bien ce breuvage mais je nen abuserais pas. A dcouvrir pour tout amateur de bire. Bouteille 33cl, Boissons du Monde, Saint-Egrve.

Bottle. Sour, fruity, tart aroma. Super crisp, dry, pleasant. Taste is also very complex. Theres rather big punch of sourness in the beginning, but its super short. Right after that theres a lot of fruity notes, not very sour, not sweet neither. Cherry, redcurrant, apple. You can feel that its well balanced, properly maturated. Its a pity though, that the taste is not as clear and not as intense as aroma. Its way behind unfortunately. But still - it is a great beer, very pleasant one.
