Rodenbach Grand Cru is an exceptional Flemish red-brown ale that owes its fresh and sour taste and complex fruitiness to its lengthy partial maturation in wooden oak casks called Foeders.

"the benchmark Flanders red...a top example of the classic Belgian style."
Aromas of berries, caramel and chocolate are followed on the palate by an initial sourness, with tart cherry, vinous and earthy notes. Complex and seductive.
A superb pairing for pungent cheeses or chocolate desserts.
Traditional product, local to the Flanders region - brewed through the same method since 1821. Through fermentation & maturation in oak casks, this beer gets a sweet-sour flavour & complex fruitiness like in wine. Rodenbach Grand Cru is a blend of 1/3 young beer and 2/3 aged beer matured for 2 years in oak casts.
