Notes/Commercial Description:
The brewer allow the beer to macerate with fresh cherries, raspberries and cranberries. After this maceration in oak, the beer re-ferments in the bottle. The result is RODENBACH Caractère Rouge, an exceptional RODENBACH with fruit maceration and a 7% alcohol volume. The brew is more than unique and extremely exclusive, as only 900 75-cl bottles were produced. Geunes serves this wilful beer as part of his other unique range of beer varieties in his restaurant, ’t Zilte, at the Antwerp MAS museum.

A: Red with a a tint of beige, mild lacing no head

S: Heavenly, a sour funk but, balence with fruity over-tone

T: Cherry and Berries with Wild Ale finish

M: Like dry wine, but not over powering

O: One of the best Flander Red that I have had; the rating by is correct and does this beer justice...

Purchased in a bottle at Monk's cafe in Philadelphia, Pa. Poured by Eddy the bartender. Great guy! Make sure you ask for him if you're there. Very knoledgeable.

Pours a ruby red color with a 1/2 inch head that dissipates rather quickly. No lacing present at as I imbibe.

Smells of tart raspberry, sweet cherries, and sugary goodness.

Tastes of amazing raspberry notes with subtle cherries and a tartness that is not too overwhelming.

Overall an awesome beer that I was lucky to
Come across thanks to Eddy the bartender. Would definitely seek this out again!

A - a beautiful deep amber colour with ruby undertones. A medium sized dark head that fades at a medium rate.

S - Malty, sweet, sour (a hint of vinegar), hints of citrus. Warm yet fresh and inviting

T - complex, sweet with acidity. The best of its class by far.

M - smooth with that slight hint of acidity.

O - an exceptional beer!
