Description

Named #1 Beer of the Year by Wine Enthusiast Magazine, RODENBACH Caractère Rouge is crafted by brew master Rudi Ghequire in partnership with 2-star Michelin chef Viki Geunes. It is an unblended beer, aged for two years in RODENBACH’s famous oak foeders (standing oak casks) and then matured an additional six months with cherries, raspberries and cranberries.

RODENBACH Caractère Rouge offers a fruity nose, with a taste of cherries, raspberries and cranberries followed by a woody caramel note on the finish that comes from the barrel-aging process. The taste is 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 and a perfect pairing alongside meats with fruit glazes, salads with cranberries, side dishes and desserts.

Notes of Scent & Flavor

  • Brew

    "Vibrant scents of fresh whole cherry and berry that are accented by waves of oak and sour fruit. The palate is forward in flavor, yet surprisingly smooth and refined, with medium carbonation and refreshing sour acidity that balance the ripe red-fruit characteristics." - Wine Enthusiast
  • Pairings

    RODENBACH Caractere Rouge is a perfect beer to pair with lighter meats (chicken, pork) with fruit glazes. Also excellent with side dishes, salads with cranberries, and desserts featuring warm fruit toppings.

“#1 Beer of the Year - a stunning, complex and remarkably balanced beer. Should not be missed.” - Wine Enthusiast


Origins

Over the past two centuries, RODENBACH has earned its official status as a Belgian National Treasure and one of the most awarded beers, globally. RODENBACH ages its beers in hand-made standing oak casks (foeders), each with the capacity of 60 wine barrels. With 294 foeders at the brewery in Roeselare, Belgium RODENBACH has the largest collection of wood-aged beer in the world. With the complexity of a fine Burgundy and the refreshment of a beer, Brew Master Rudi Ghequire calls RODENBACH “the missing link between beer and wine.”
