Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Jason on 11-02-2011

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 (first batch). 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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

bottle served in two snifters (re-purposed maple syrup glasses).
smells sweet like young gueze or lambic.
a very hidden tart on the nose as well.
color is dark amber.
head is just a thin layer.
very nicely carbonated.
taste is overly sweet berry flavor with some light tartness.
mouthfeel is sweet but leads to light funk and tart dryness.
probably would not purchase again at the price (23.99) but not a bad beer to have for dessert. seems very "one-notey" front to back and way to sweet for my liking. would age help?
