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.

Wow. Thanks to TampaBrew for bringing this one. Pours a lovely red with haze and a creamy off-white head. Nose is cherry, wood, vinegar, fruit, and sweetness. Flavor is the same with a pervading balsamic presence that is very mellow and resides firmly in the background. Medium bodied, complex, and finishing with cherries, vinegar, and mellow vinegar. Top noch, and very drinkable.

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.

Rödbrun färg. Vinäger i både doft och smak. Vinkänslan är påtaglig. En syrlighet gör att det drar i gommen, spännande ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tried the versions of 2012 and 2013 simultaneously... the aroma is fruity and, a little bit, woody with shades of berries, apple vinegar, sour citrus and red wine... the taste of fruits and red sparkling wine with notes of sour berries, fresh cherry, sour citrus and sour plum... sour and dry aftertaste with woody tartness...

750 ml bottle (thx, Justin W.!). Pours an opaque reddish brown with a ran head. Aroma is sour, fruity, woody, cherry notes. Taste is pretty the same with some fermented vegetable and fruits notes. Low to moderate sweetness and sourness. Good stuff, but I would prefer more body.
