Details

Probably no other brewery specialises so much in barrel-aged sour beers in the Flemish Tradition. A national treasure! The Rodenbach Grand Cru is one to be admired. This Belgian ale of the Flanders Red Ale style is a blend of a younger beer with an older beer that had been aged in oak vats. Aromas of balsamic vinegar and sharp-yet-sweet flavours of fruit, oak and Madeira wine give this beer an unparalleled complexity. Truly a refreshing beauty! Rodenbach Grand Cru won a Bronze Medal at the World Beer Awards 2016 in the category Belgium - Oud Bruin.

I really enjoy these aged Belgian beers and the Grand Cru is a top notch version.
Unexpectedly - Sour!

I thought I would enjoy this one, as I have enjoyed many lambic style beers before now...
However, this certainly is an acquired taste! Very Sour twang, but not in a nice clean way, a muddied flavour that is obviously for a particular palate. I won't be buying this one again - unless I want to shock someone!

Excellent sour flanders red, if you like the original version then this is even better and worth the premium. Definitely one I'm going to reorder
