Rodenbach Grand Cru

Flanders Red-Brown Beer

  • ABV: 6.0%
  • Mixed fermentation
  • 6 x 4 x 330ml bottles
  • 12 x 750ml Bottles
  • 20 Litre One-Way Kegs

Grand Cru by RODENBACH has on average been left for much longer in the oak casks (“foeders”) of the Roeselare “beer cathedral”, which results in a more pronounced version of the “Flanders Red-Brown Beer” style. RODENBACH 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.

Beer critic Michael Jackson rightly called this beer a “World Classic” and “the Burgundy of Belgium”.

(2014 currently available, pre-order open for 2015)

  • ABV: 7.0%
  • Mixed fermentation
  • 6 x 750ml bottles
  • 20 Litre One-Way Kegs

RODENBACH Vintage is the unique result of our RODENBACH-brewers selecting the cask which has produced the best beer after two years of maturation: “cask of the year”. The cask number always appears on the label, and the year refers to the start of maturation.

RODENBACH Vintage is 100% matured beer, which results in a superior taste. RODENBACH Grand Cru. 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. The slightly sour, fruity aftertaste is long and nicely balanced, just like a Grand Cru wine.

Rodenbach Caractere Rouge

  • ABV: 7.0%
  • 6 x 750ml bottles
  • 20 Litre One-Way Kegs

RODENBACH Caractère Rouge was developed in 2011 in collaboration with top chef Viki Geunes (2 Michelin stars). 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. The result is an exceptional RODENBACH with a 7% alcohol by volume. RODENBACH Caractère Rouge is vinous with a very complex, fruity nose of raspberry and cherry combined with notes of wood and caramel. The undertone consists of an aroma of violets, leather and a hint of tobacco. The taste is rather sour but exceptionally pure. With its long, clean aftertaste and its unique combination of delicacy and strength, RODENBACH Caractère Rouge is reminiscent of a crisp Burgundy wine. This noble beer is unique and exclusive. In his restaurant ’t Zilte, Viki Geunes combines this willful beer with his sophisticated gastronomic creations.

Rodenbach Rosso

  • ABV: 4.0%
  • 20 Litre One-Way Kegs

RODENBACH Rosso is an authentic, easily digestible, sweet and sour, refreshing beer. RODENBACH Rosso is brewed from two-year-old RODENBACH beer – aged in oak casks – blended with young RODENBACH, following which the brew is partially macerated with cranberries, raspberries and sour cherries, before the natural juices of these red berries are added. RODENBACH Rosso’s unique fresh-fruit taste mainly comes from the carefully selected cocktail of fruits and the beer matured in wooden casks. RODENBACH Rosso, with its modern red design, is served in an original glass, circular at the top and oval at the base.

Brewer Rudi Ghequire describes the beer as follows:  This mixed-fermentation fruit beer is fresh, fruity and very refreshing, with a slightly dry aftertaste, the colour of a young Burgundy wine and a low alcohol content. This makes the beer very refreshing, allowing our creation to stand out compared to many other fruit beers on the market.
