Rodenbach

The penultimate beer of the 40b40 looms before me: the “Flemish red-brown” Rodenbach. It’s a beer I’ve had once before. I remember it tasting metallic then. Let’s open it up and see if the experience of the 40b40 has changed my mind...

The aroma is red wine vinegar. The taste is... more like a lambic or gueuze than I expected. Sour. Crisp. Not at all metallic like I remember. Better. Surprisingly refreshing.

It’s not the right beer for a cold night like this, perhaps, but I can imagine drinking a couple of these on a warm summer’s evening on the terrace.
