Rodenbach Grand Cru
is a sour ale that is 2/3 aged "mother beer" - which has matured in oak at least two years - blended with 1/3 of a younger, sweeter counterpart. Considered the current benchmark of the Flemish sour ale style, the brew pours a dark ruby brown with a small beige head.
Aromas include vinegar, ripe stone fruits, candy sugar, berries, sour apple and red wine. Taste follows a similar profile with sour fruits and berries dominating but equally important are balancing notes of sweet caramel, molasses, oak, vanilla, cheese and chocolate.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied and creamy with lots of carbonation and a well hidden 6.0% ABV. The finish is dry, lingering, and tart.
Pairs well with shrimp and other seafood, or try with rich, higher-fat poultry like duck; also pairs well with rich, savory game meats.
was founded in 1836 by Pedro Rodenbach and his wife, Regina Wauters, in Roeselare, a town in the West Flanders region of Belgium.
Their grandson Eugene traveled to England to learn from master-brewers of porter the principles of maturing beer in oak casks (or foeders) as well as the process of properly blending the results. He returned to Roeselare and created masterful sour ales for which the family's brewery became famous.
Today the Rodenbach Brewery, since 1998 a part of the Palm Brewery Corporation of craft brewers, produces award-winning sour ales for distribution worldwide.
