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.

on tap @ Ei8ht Ball / Bellevue KY --- Aroma of malt. Hazy amber brown, off-white head that sinks to the rim, beands of lace. Taste is slightly tart malt that gradually sweetens, adding toffee on a medium fizzy swallow. The long finish stays on the sweet side. Good brew.

Dimmig rdbrun l med ett smutsvitt skum. Doft av krsbr, rda br, ltta vingertoner, tr och vanilj. I smaken tar syrligheten en lite strre plats. Bra balans mellan stma och syra. Ltt kolsyra och oljig munknsla.
