RODENBACH BREWERY
Mixed-fermentation thoroughbred beers
RODENBACH
Caractère Rouge
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 to-
bacco. 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 gastro-
nomic creations.
