Aroma is tart cherries, medium body, medium carbonation, and pretty good small bubble lacing. Taste is rice rich cherry, some tart, And a little wood. Not only the best Rodenbach, but the best Flemish reds, and one of the best beers I have had.
Rodenbach Alexander is a sour Ale brewed with fruit. It's a blend of 2/3rd aged Rodenbach (100% 2 year aged beer) with 1/3rd 'young ale', macerated with sour cherries. The natural flavor and taste of sour cherries is bringing a perfect match between the sour beer and the red fruit.
Alexander Rodenbach was born on 28 September 1786 in Roeselare. This extraordinary man, who became blind at the age of 11, was a born entrepreneur with great determination.
He managed the RODENBACH brewery from 1821, but also worked as a writer and member of parliament. He even became mayor of Rumbeke.
To honour this unique man, a celebration beer was released under the name RODENBACH Alexander to mark his 200th birthday in 1986. Today, 30 years after its very first launch, a limited edition of this beer goes on sale again.
