Rodenbach Grand Cru

$8.00 $8.00

Country: Belgium

Brewery: Brouwerij Rodenbach N.V

Style: Sour/Wild Ale

Format: 330ml

ABV: 7%

Bottle filtered, Rodenbach Grand Cru is a blend of 1/3 young beer and 2/3 of beer aged 2 years in large oak vats. The more important proportion of oak matured beer contributes to its fruity taste, complexity and intensity. The finish is worth of a great wine.

Product Reviews


  1. 5 Star Review Sour, Porty, Delicious

    Unbelievable. So drinkable. Fresh, crisp, mildly sour like European cherries should be. Not forgetting this one. A bit of oak on the nose, with a mild tart but still sweet lingering finish. Very very sessionable.

  2. 5 Star Review Full marks

    It took so very long to find a vendor that stocked this brew. Let me just say, it is just such a great beer!
    The bouquet is sweet with hints of cherries, dark chocolate and spices with a very (almost vague) slight hoppy scent.
    On the mouth... Wow! It's almost like the Asian drinking vinegar. Very sour at first before it gives way to a sweet linger. Very tropical behind the sour and a perfect companion to both a hard day of work or a cold winter evening. It's a perfect blend of two different cellared beers.
    Seriously, the only 2 complaints (the first isn't really a complaint) I have with this one is it's not for everyone and it's fairly hard to find.
    If you see a bottle, pick it up!

  3. 4 Star Review A step up

    Everything you love from the standard and more! Fruitier! Do it.

  4. 5 Star Review Amazing

    A fuller more balanced flavour than the Rodenbach in the can. Pretty amazing if you like this style.

  5. 5 Star Review Wow!

    Technically a Flanders Red Ale this is sour like lambics but oh so balanced. The guys at Beer Advocate rate it an amazing 100/100 ! This is only for the adventurous or already converted. To the uninitiated it tastes 2/3 rough cider 1/3 beer. Remember when you put cheddar aside and had your first taste of stilton? This shock is what you are in for. First bottle left me wondering. Now after 4 my taste buds have learnt a bit and I am ready to buy my first case.

  6. 5 Star Review Classic Flemish sour ale

    A beautiful bronzed beer, aromas of cocoa, roasted nuts, balsamic vinegar & green apple are the first hints that this is not your average brown/red ale. Then the palate delivers a good upfront nutty, caramelised maltiness, before taking the taste buds to territory usually reserved for wine; dark fruits, charred wood, cooked apple, and red wine vinegar tartness to top it off.
