COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rodenbach Vintage is the unique result of selection by our Rodenbach brew masters, the barrel after two years of maturation has produced the best beer, "the best barrel of the year". The label is always the number of barrel stated and the year which marks the beginning of maturation.

Rodenbach Vintage is 100% matured old beer, resulting in superior Rodenbach Grand Cru. Its taste is complex, round, intense and refreshing. Typically, the apple tart fruitiness combined with caramel, wild honey and oak with a hint of vanilla, cherry and licorice. Its aroma has hints of caramel and oak, as well as notes of green apples mixed with honey and chocolate. The soft sour, fruity aftertaste is long and nicely balanced like a grand cru wine.

Ingredients: water, barley malt, corn, hops.

One of the best things I have ever drank. Bought the 2007 and drank it in August 2013. Complex, woody, fruity, smooth and just awesome. It was shared with friends and enjoyed by all.

McWorta (1560) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 21, 2014
Chestnut brown in colour with a fine, fast fading toast coloured head, no CO2 and clear. Aromas of balsamico vinegar, white wine, wet woodbark, wet autumn leaves and a notch of leather develop on the nose. White grapes dominate the sourness with a harmonic sweetness bathing the palate. Slender, elegant with medium body offering a long lasting pleasant sour finish.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2015 Bottiglia 75cl (barrel 95 del 2011), ordinata su birraland e bevuta a casa. Ambrata molto scura con schiuma molto fine che lascia un velo. Carbonazione soft che stuzzica il palato. Corpo medio. Acida ma contenuta, sapore che tira sulla frutta rossa.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
2009 vintage, barrel 145. 750 mL bottle courtesy of Tyson, served in a snifter. Pours hazy deep chestnut with a medium beige head that mostly remains and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has big notes of oak, caramel, vanilla and sour cherry. The flavour is balanced between soft tart cherries on the one hand and caramel oakiness on the other. The finish is long and delicate with oaky notes, slight sour fruit, caramel and vanilla. On the palate it is medium in body with a silky smooth texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a very elegant barrel aged sour red ale. 2014-03-07

NeuroPliny (245) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a Trappist glass. Cloudy dark red brown with moderate quickly fading head; nice lacing. Aroma is sour yeast, balsamic vinegar, and notes of toffee and ripe berry. Flavour is tart dried fruit, tarragon, oak, and sweet caramel malts. Well balanced sweetness, sourness, and tartness.

erickok (5629) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2014
2010 Vintage, pouring a copper brown body and initially a foamy brown head. Woody malts, dark fruit, sticky brown sugar and a sourish fermenting aroma. Very clearly present yet soft sourness in the taste, malty too, brown cane sugar. Very drinkable though and lovely developed. I dig it. (75cl bottle gift from Nico and Cecile, many thanks!)

Love this beer. Its truly the epitome of what I love about sour beers at the moment. Clean tart sour flavors with just the right balance of sweet fruit. Pleasant yet powerful. I could drink this anytime, anywhere, gladly.
