Rodenbach Grand Cru (Alc. 6% Vol.) is a blend of “young” beer (33%) and an older beer (67%) that has matured in oak vats. It is the high percentage of the older ripened-in-oak beer that gives it the complex and intense bouquet
Beer of shining golden colour that comes from a selection of especially bitter Maltas and hops and its process of baking, fermentation and maturation passes throughout 20 days. It causes that this beer tastes pleasant.
Sweet and phenolic aroma and flavour, peppery and fruity on a moderate body. Faint refined honey-like malt flavours mingle with the reserved yet concrete hop bitterness. Drying finish shows the alcoholic esters as well as some solvent higher alcohols that seem to leave as quick as they came in.
