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.

750ml bottle. Pours clear reddish brownish colour, nice yellowish head stays. Lots of caramelly fruits, some woodiness, vinegar, sourness in aroma. Taste is sour, acidic, woody, lots of fruits here, berries, plums. More vinegary notes in aftertaste, woody tannin dry finish. Medium + bodied, quite lively carbo. Very interesting and well balanced brew, really nice to pair with different food. Good!

achimczi (25) - Vanlose, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2017 Dark amber colour, no head. In rase there are dark fruits, rains, barrell but unfortunately also some vinegar. In taste it is really great, little bit sourness with sweet counter coming from dark fruits and barrell. It remains me somehow of good barley wine. With very light carbonation it makes it a great beer!

Nice beer, all is like the other too rodenbach's beers - caractere rouge and grand cru. This is just a little bit sour, no such sweetness. Same barrel aromas, fruitness, champagne but + vinegar. It is complex. FOOD RECOMMENDED!

Piotrek4 (294) - Lublin, POLAND - SEP 23, 2017
Vintage 2014.W aromacie wiśniowo słodko, ale też trochę słodyczy jakby takiej cukrowej. Pachnie to piwo trochę jak sos winegret z cukrem. W smaku ogromnie octowe, jakby pić zalewę octową z cukrem. Jest też poza tym trochę takiej cukierkowo-landrynkowej słodkości, która jest zdecydowanie przyjemniejsza niż ten ocet. Nie piłem jeszcze tak ultra octowego flandersa, Duchesse przy tym to w ogóle octowa nie jest. Aż się boję pomyśleć jak to piwo będzie smakowało za 5 lat. Póki co jeszcze w miarę smacznie można to spożyć, ale to chyba ostatnie takie chwile.
