lhns03 (103) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Pours with an off-white, dissipating head. Color is a crystal, dark amber. Nose is tart cherries with a bit of barnyard. Flavor is bright and sour with firm maltiness. Mouthfeel is lively with a medium-light body. Finish is tart with some lacto and overall very well balanced for the style.

rodenbachvintage (47) - Roeselare, BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2017
Fruitig, verfrissend licht zuur bier. Door 75% jong bier te vermengen met "slechts" 25% 2 jaar op de majestueuze eiken foeders gerijpt bier heeft de Rodenbach Classic minder diepgang dan zijn broers en zussen, maar desalniettemin een klassieker. Terecht het meest verfrissende beer ter wereld genoemd. ideale instapbier om het Rodenbachgamma te ontdekken.

thepatrickman (1365) - Jevington, East Sussex, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2017
Bottle at home. Sour and sweet, this definely makes an impression on your taste buds. There’s so much young beer in here, though, that the malty sweetness and fruitiness really dominate. Tastes more like a sweetened fruit beer than a true sour, but there’s enough soothes hiding in the background it’d make a good introductory beer for people trying their first sours.

3.3
loscovar (400) - Villeneuvette, FRANCE - JUN 30, 2017
Bottle from la superette à biere. I gues they change the label and name, my says Rodenbach classic on a White label, there is no entry for it. Nice sourness, well balanced, good sour ale

3.4
PowY (797) - AUSTRIA - JUN 30, 2017
250 ml bottle, bb 10.10.2018. Pours a nearly clear chestnut brown with a light-beige head. The aroma is fruity, lightly acidic and sour with unripe berries and lightly yeasty with faint woody notes. Medium watery body with a medium to lively carbonation, a light sourness and a light bitterness. The flavor starts fruity with red currant, gooseberries and hints of cherries and plums along with some malt (toasted bread, light caramel). Finishes dry with soft, tart woody notes. Not in particular special but balanced and very smooth to drink.
