"Rodenbach Caractère Rouge has a subtle fruity scent of raspberry and cherry combined with wood notes and caramel. Underneath is a fragrance of violets with hints of leather and light tobacco. It is a beer with a vinous aroma. At first its palate tastes of tingling, crisp acids. This initial flavour is quickly countered by a pleasant residual sweetness and delicate dryness from the cranberries, which also give the beer a long, sweet and therefore particularly pleasant aftertaste. The three fruits that were used clearly did not fail to achieve their desired effect. When I taste this Rodenbach, it reminds me of a fresh burgundy wine. Of course that has a lot to do with the delicate, hugely expressive fruit and wood fermentation." —brewer
"Beautiful lacing, dark amber glow.

"Perfume-like fruit, some raspberry and cherry but the tartness of the cranberries and the house character come out more in the nose.

"Tart pucker, soft malt, hint of caramel, bread, wood, bubble gum, cranberry tartness, faint raspberry and cherry, mint, pull of wood which leads to dryness.

"Worth the try and the extremely higher price tag, by far one of the most interesting beers I have tasted this year. From the use of different fruits and the wood aging...epic." —Jason Alström, BeerAdvocate
