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.

Mariox (394) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 31, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2017 Aromat winny, dużo nut octowych, wiśniowych i czerwonych owoców oraz drzewnych nut beczki. W smaku dość mocno kwaśne z kontrą lekkiej słodyczy. W posmaku cierpkie, taniczne. Wysycenie niewielkie. Dość treściwe i zarazem bardzo pijalne. Bardzo dobre piwo.

kapusil (1561) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 26, 2017
0.75l bottle vintage 2014. Almost totally clear reddish body with a very thin white head. Aroma of sour cherries, oak, mold and grapes. Taste of sour cherry, oak, tobacco, caramel and vinegar. Bone dry and sour. The aroma has a tiny bit of solvent-like harshness, but the taste is probably the best from all oude bruins I've had. Really nice.

Bottle shared at tasting session. Reddish brown colour, small white lacing. Nose is red wine, a touch of acetic acid. Taste is medium sweetness, some acetic notes, and candied sugar. Those who had more flemish reds than I did said its too sweet, but I liked it like this.

Vintage 2015, beczka 195. W aromacie owocowo i beczkowo i niestety daje nieco octem :/ Kolor ciemny bursztyn, bardzo klarowne. Piana szybko redukująca się do obrączki, ale pozostaje do ostatniego łyku.W smaku słodko-kwaśno, ale podobnie jak w aromacie, drażniące nuty octowe wychodzące poza kwasowość gatunku. Mimo to bardzo pijalne, lekkie, nie męczące. Klasa, ale tutaj wymaga się już więcej. Vintage 2013 znacznie lepszy.
