Brouwerij Rodenbach Classic Red
Brouwerij Rodenbach Classic Red while eating dinner at Stout NYC. The beer pours a cloudy red-amber color with a bubbly white head. The aroma is slightly sour with raspberry, cherry, oak, and a hint of tart. The taste is sweet at first with cherry and raspberry before a dry oak flavor takes over the mouth. There are hints of chocolate and a slight tart flavor on the finish, but they are not prevalent. The alcohol content is 5.2% ABV. This was a great Flanders Red Ale with the faintest of tartness, but the fruity flavors, accompanied with a slight chocolate flavor, stole the show with the beer.
