Rodenbach Vintage is a unique unblended Flemish red-brown ale that is matured for 2 years in the best oak casks. Deep mahogany with a fine, lacy head. Aromas of sour cherry and dried fruit are underscored by balsamic vinegar and a hint of lacquer. Tart and sour flavours are balanced by malty sweetness and spicy oak notes that carry through to a lengthy finish. Drinkable and refreshing, this would be a great match for sauerbraten.

In 1821, four brothers of the distinguished Rodenbach family invested in a small brewery in Roeselare, in the West Flanders province of Belgium. Some fifty years later, the grandson of one of the founders took over directorship of the company. He travelled to England where he learned how to ripen beer in oak barrels and then mix old and young beers. Rodenbach became the world’s best-know ‘mixed fermentation’ brewery. In 1998, the company was purchased by Belgium Craft Breweries, owner of PALM Brewery. RODENBACH the original sour ale brewery of Belgium.
