The Range of Rodenbach – Special Tappings
March 9, 2016 - March 13, 2016
Here you go sour beer fans! We are now featuring four different beers from the classic Belgian brewery Rodenbach, one of the world’s leading producers of the oak-aged sour brown ales known as “Flanders red.” They will be pouring all weekend and likely through early next week. See below for the stats on each beer, stop in and try a flight of all four and get your pucker-face on!
Rodenbach Grand Cru (6% abv)
Grand Cru consists of 1/3 young beer and 2/3 beer matured two years in oak. The result is a complex beer with a great deal of wood and esters, vinous and with a very long aftertaste, just like a Grand Cru wine.
Rodenbach Foederbier (6% abv)
Unfiltered, unpasteurized beer drawn straight from the wooden tanks. The rawest of the range, with slight oak character, green apple, and cherry notes.
Rodenbach Vintage 2013 (7% abv)
Vintage is 100% matured beer, which results in a superior taste. Its taste is complex and rounded, intense and refreshing. It is characterised by an acidic, appley fruitiness combined with caramel, wild honey and oak with a touch of vanilla, cherry and liquorice. The aroma consists of touches of caramel and oak, as well as green apples mixed with honey and chocolate.
Rodenbach Caractere Rouge (7% abv)
This exclusive beer is created by adding an extra six months’ fermenting maceration with cherries, raspberries and cranberries to beer that has already undergone two years’ maturation in oak casks.
