About this product

Award Winning* Rodenbach Grand Cru (Alc. 6% Vol.) is a blend of “young” beer (33%) and an older beer (67%) that has matured in oak vats. It is the high percentage of the older ripened-in-oak beer that gives it the complex and intense bouquet with a very long aftertaste like a Grand Cru wine.

This is a complex beer with lots of wood and fruity esters, wine-like and with a balsamic vinegar aroma. A sharp taste, fruity, refreshing and with a balanced Madeira-like sweetness. The late Michael Jackson bestowed upon this beer the titles of “World Classic” and “the Burgundy of Belgium.”

How to serve RODENBACH® GRAND CRU? • RODENBACH® GRAND CRU bottles should be kept at cellar or refrigerator temperature • Serve between 6-8° C • Always serve RODENBACH® GRAND CRU in its unique glass • Hold the glass a slight angle and slowly pour the beer along the side of the glass until its is half full. Now straighten the glass and pour the remainder of the bottle from a slightly higher distance. To your health! RODENBACH® GRAND CRU & FOOD RODENBACH® GRAND CRU is ideally combined with foie gras, (fat contrasted with sour).One can also combine RODENBACH® GRAND CRU with sour dishes such as haring or a cold fish salad (civiche).

Medium bodied and challenging, fruity oaky-tart, Dark Flemish Red. A beer that distinguishes itself by its refreshing, fruity taste and bright red colour. The result of a mixed fermentation of top yeasts and bacterial flora, followed by 24 months of maturation in oak casks like wine, whereby organic acids are converted into higher alcohols and fruity esters.

    Belgian red at its best

    A bit of a niche product but can't go wrong if you're into sours
  2. Verified Buyer


    Nice fruity taste with a hint of oak
  3. Red ale classic

    Duchesse de Bourgogne is a key reason i am niw obsessed by diverse beer styles - i only recently tried Rodenbach and i get the hype. Its a solid, slightly more “beery” complex version of the style, with the vinegar element more in balance.
  4. The sort of beer that reminds you that you're alive

    Madness in a glass! Cherry vinegar, very acidic and fruity
  5. Noice

    Really decent drink. Not too heavy.
