Product Description:

Located almost in the center of Roeselare, West Flanders, Brouwerij Rodenbach has been producing a style of “wild beer” known as Flanders Red Ale for the past 200 or so years. This regional speciality harks back to an age where breweries commonly aged beer for (up to) several years in oak barrels. Due to its deep rouge colour, and tart, vinous flavours the Flanders Red style has been dubbed “the Burgundy of Belgium”. Microorganisms – wild yeasts and bacteria – living in the barrels lend a distinctive sour characteristic, for which the style is renowned.

 

The Rodenbach brewers age a wort for 18-24 months in ceiling-high oak tuns, tuns produced and maintained from the trees of a neighbouring forest. A portion of this aged beer is blended with a younger brew (aged for 4-8 months in stainless steel tanks which promote the development of lactic acid), to produce Rodenbach Classic. A small amount is sold unblended as Rodenbach Grand Cru, a sharply acidic and incredibly complex beer which is held in the highest regard amongst beer lovers worldwide. The tartness of Rodenbach Grand Cru makes it an ideal beer to match with food, and also makes it incredibly refreshing - late beer guru Michael Jackson described Rodenbach Grand Cru as “the most thirst quenching beer in the world”.
