Named #1 Beer of the Year by Wine Enthusiast Magazine, Rodenbach Caractère Rouge (ABV 7%) is crafted by brew master Rudi Ghequire in partnership with 2-star Michelin chef Viki Geunes. It is an unblended beer, aged for two years in Rodenbach's famous oak foeders (standing oak casks) and then matured an additional six months with cherries, raspberries, and cranberries.

Caractère Rouge offers a fruity nose, with a taste of cherries, raspberries, and cranberries followed by a woody caramel note on the finish that comes from the barrel-aging process. The taste is sour, but exceptionally pure. With its long, clean aftertaste and its unique combination of delicacy and strength, it's reminiscent of a crisp Burgundy wine. Rated 100/100 on Ratebeer.com.


The Rodenbach Brewery 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.
