In this beer blog, we are going to sample out import beer. It is Rodenbach Flemish Red-Brown Ale. Rodenbach was named after the four Rodenbach brothers that founded this small brewery in 1821. It remained in the family until 1998 when it was sold to Palm Brewery Company. It is located in Roeselare, Belgium. They mainly brew sour beers. They are famous for this beer style and well-known for it. Let us get into this beer classic.
It has a dark red color with white head that disappears over time. The aroma has a sweet but slight hint of sour malty notes. The taste has a strong malt forward with a sour bitter aftertaste. It is a nice sipping beer.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In the end, this is a beer style that you will need to build yourself up to enjoy it. It is like the world of IPA’s. You are going to either love or hate it. Once you like it. You will keep coming back for more and searching for new sours or IPA’s. I know if I give this beer to a mass-produced beer drinker or a new craft beer drinker. They will not like it and say it is not beer. This is a very special beer style. I love this brew. This is the best sour on the market and the world. There are breweries that coming pretty close to this sour. It will never be pasted over. I highly recommend this beer and the rest of their sours. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
