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.

n1940 (130) - Dunbar, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2017
750 ml bottle. Quiet pour with modest carbonation and a wonderful complex aroma of malt vinegar, sour cherry, and hard fruit. This beer has a hazy red brown colour with a sepia head and adequate lace. The sour fruit start has candy sugar notes expanding into the middle. The finish is long with an undertone of cherry and Belgian yeast adding to the complexity. A most refreshing Flemish ale.

Strong pointy beer with a lot of flavor and smell. A very intens, yet refreshing fruity old belgian beer. If you love sherry, be sure to taste this! A taste of oak, caramel and sherry. Very strong, intriguing beer.

Frudel (236) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2017
Vintage 2014. En bouteille. On mavait dit beaucoup de bien de cette bire, je navais jamais encore got. On ouvre la bouteille vite! Un liquide rouge/bourbogne schappe du goulot avec une mousse blanche lgrement rose. Au nez, wow! Acide actique, vinaigre balsamique, petits fruits rouges aciduls. Au got, acidit leve, superbe balance entre le sucre rsiduel et lacidit, vinaigre balsamique sucr, notes de cerises. Belle complexit, Rodenbach sont vraiment matre dans le vieillissement en barriques.
