On draught at Beer Temple (Amsterdam), appearance is clear ruddy brown with a loose off-white head.

Smell is sweet and spicy and funky, classic.

Taste is sour grape and iodine, mildly sweet, much less so than regular Rodenbach, more sour as well. Delicious.

Mouthfeel is light, slippery.

Drinakability is high, delicious and a world classic for a reason!

4 oz pour on tap

A: Murky brownish red bidy with very little head.

S: Vinegar, sour apple, wine like.

T: Slightly sour nice vinegar, sour grape, apple

M: Thick lower carbonation makes it drink a tad harsher.

O: Not a bad flanders red but I can't tell the difference between this and the Grand Cru.

Really dark brown color, almost black, tan head. Aroma has bitter cherries, chocolate and some caramel. Taste starts sour upfront, slightly acidic, continues with toffee and caramel, very balanced on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. This is very interesting flanders style ale, quite different from the other Rodenbach beers. Much more chocolate and toffee.

Hazy brownish red with a tan head. Light vinegar, apple cider, macerated fruit, all of this diluted in intensity.

Thick pour, the color of a fruit leather.

Very nice, smooth, vibrant aroma. Tart cherries and raspberries against light hints of caramel.

Tastes like it smells, remarkbly both very tart and very smooth. Big cherries are tart to start, moving into smother fruit near the middle, finishing with malt and a little lingering sour. The flavor isn't as complex as their heavenly Grand Cru, but still fantastic.
