Rodenbach Vintage 2008
Bob is not going to believe this one, but I found a Rodenbach I like, which is quite something, considering our earlier attempts. This find is thanks to JC and Bie, who invited us to their housewarming party in Gent last month and served up a bottle.
Rodenbach Vintage 2008 has that sour vinegar element like other Rodenbachs, but this one is mellow, and some sweetness kicks in quite quickly. The slight caramel taste matches its lovely chestnut colour, but the best part is the pomegranate note.
You'll have to try it, Bob, sorry...
