Deep red colour, diminishing white head. Aroma of cherry, almond, marzipan, raisins, light sour cherry notes, dried fruits, dried apple. Quite sweet flavour, cherry juice, light fruit acids, light madeira. Still has a lot of cherry. Bit thin body, but long sweet finish, cherry, raisins, almond and funk. Developed quite nicely, came some way from the beer I used to make ice cream float with. Seems it had the tide against it when it was released, but was quite a good beer for what it was.

Clear red brown beer, small off-white head, little stable, non adhesive.

Taste: very sweet start, sugary, very fruity, cherry candy, bit lemony, more sweetness. Glad to have completed my Rodenbach series now!
Deep clear red with off white head. Light aroma. Taste is sweet with bitter finish. Nice beer. kraddel (9338) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2012
had one in the kulminator . they were all out but find some, this was the very very last one they had of those ’ founded bottles’ so i guess i am very lucky here !
tastes very sweet cherries, even after al the aging ( will keep good to 2006 , how old aint this than? 2004 ? ) if you search good you can still taste the rodenbach caracter, but the sweetness is overwhelming on this one. i also got some kind of ’old cany’ taste wich i dont like at all. sugars maybe? prob wasnt there fresh... but overall better than expected ! brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Bright reddish amber pour with an off-white head. Nose is just like cherry soda and candy. A bit of tartness, mostly vinegar, with a hint of lemon. There’s a fair amount of metal and some grass, too. Tastes overwhelmingly sweet. A ton of cherry, but more like a soda than anything. Sugar, light vinegar tartness, and some metallic notes.

Bottle @ Kulminator. BB 06/06. Pours cloudy golden with a small bubbly head. Juicy cherries and a bit of dark fruit. A little metallic. Smooth and dry. Quite quenching. Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Served in a Rodenbach goblet. Pours a reddish-brown color without too much of a head. Nose is very heavy cherry Jolly Rancher character. Flavor is similar. Fairly tart. Not too complex. Interesting move with the twist off cap. Huhzubendah (3775) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike!
The beer appears a dark crimson color with minimal head and sparse lacing. The aroma is sweet, offering cherries, hints of nail polish. Just OK. The flavor is sweet, almost like a Shirley Temple, with a pronounced maraschino cherry taste. Light in body, and easy to swill. The sweetness renders this best in small quantities. Still, always fun to try a new beer, let alone one brewed by Rodenbach. SirLimpsalot (4705) - SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2012
Doftar gammalt telt och metall. Lite söt metallisk bärsmak och et ganska stort källarpregl gyllenbock (10034) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2012
Bottle at Kulminator, March 2012.
Reddish purple with a small pinkish head. Extremely drinkbable, almost like cherry juice but with some good sourness. Thin and sweet but I liked it anyway.
