Scopey (14229) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2011
2004 bottle (number 017505) at the Delirium cafe, Brussels. It pours reddish amber with pretty much no head or carbonation. The nose is sweet strawberry, raspberry, vinous, malt vinegar and orange. The taste is juicy strawberry, wood, tangy cherry, tart lemon, some malt vinegar (but not nearly as much as Grand Cru), wine-like, brandy and alcohol warmth in the finish. It is initially full of sweet fruit, but has a tart finish. It is very well balanced and so drinkable at this strength. Amazing stuff.

Christian (13578) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2008
Light amber colour with no head. It has that unique fruity, funky, fresh Rodenbach aroma, with a little caramel and malt. Tart, yet rather sweet. Fruity like a chardonnay. Has a powerful fel to it, yet doesn’t show the 10% alcohol. Finishes sour and refreshing.

bierkoning (13132) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2008
Bottle, bought expensively in the Cracked Kettle. pale orange color. Vinous aroma with muscat grapes, oak and sherry notes. Sour flavors, woody, citric and vinous. Sharp on the edges. Not a sign of the promised 10% ABV. Almost flat. An aftertaste that seems to linger on forever. Without any doubt a classic, I wish I had a crate of this, I would store it for many more years.

Some alcohol notes permeate late with stale hops and cork notes. Flavor is acetic fruit (pears, grapes, apricot) and a substantial malt body, lightly sweet with a dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.
