Rodenbach Caractère Rouge

 

4.2

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 16/20

AdamJackson (2299) – Enfield, New Hampshire, USA – JUN 17, 2014

Batch 2, enjoyed 4 ways at 45F in stemware. 

A – Huge cork pop, no gush, Blood red pour, 1 finger head fizzes out to a small head. 

S – The nose is fantastic. Gorgeous cherry dominates followed by a small raspberry acidity and that classic oaky rodenhbach nose 

T – Very smooth, loads of fruit! Just a huge explosion of cherry and raspberry. cranberry seems like an after-note, fruit salad in a glass. Acidic and tart, not overpowering sour, very easy to drink 

M – Juicy, Nice mouthfeel carbonation on a swish. 

O – This is a fantastic beer! I have a batch 1 as well and can’t wait to hold that for a very long time.
