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.

Bardzo fajna piwuna, mogłaby jednak być cięższa, bardziej intensywna i octowa. Vintage 2014

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2017 ’t is wijn! Geen bier die het meest aanspraak mag maken op deze slogan. Geen week gaat voorbij of deze passeert de revue. Van 2007 tot nu. Dit is een intens rijk zuurbier met toetsen vanille, appel, ... gecombineerd met de heerlijke eik. Dit is af, deze smaak behouden is al een kunst op zich. Wat een verfrissend bier met een heerlijke, rijke diepgang. Uniek! 2007-2014 top, 2015 een goed bier, maar te fruitig om in de vintagereeks thuis te horen. Mist de droge aciditeit van de vorige jaargangen.

2011 edition, barrel no. 95. Red beer with almost no had. Aromas of red cherries, sour notes, lots of fruits. Sour and sweet, very fruity and complex. A bit tannic aftertaste. Very good. And very drinkable.

Vynikající Rodenbach, pro mě druhá zkušenost s tímto pivovarem. Vynikající sladkokyselá chuť, ovocné aroma a velmi jemná pěna.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2017 Smagt på Bistro Bruut i Brügge, Belgien. Syrlig aroma med masser af rød frugt. Stor fylde med et flot spil mellem sødme, syre og frugt.

[2012] Brown colour, nice white head. Aroma of caramel, vanilla, red fruits, honey. Very complex, but not so intensive. Taste is even better. Sour, vinegar, fruity with wine accents. So woody in aftertaste. A little bit of caramel and honey also appears. Very refreshing. Complex. Full body, middle - high carbonation. Great one!

OminouSC2 (966) - Mora, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2017 Red/brown color, minimal white head. Tart aromas with cherries, spices, vinegar and oranges. Tart taste with gooseberries, strawberries, cherries and vinegar.
