Rodenbach Caractère Rouge Red-Brown Ale with Steve

Another Rodenbach – you’d think we’d learn. There’s even another one waiting in the hopper. Sour beer is gross. It’s just gross.

The Cataract Rogue is a “recognized regional product” is a flavoured Flemish red-brown ale from the Phlegm region of Belgium, home to other Belgian landmarks: Hork, Hock, and Spittle. None of those are facts. Don’t trust us, we’ll steal you wallet.

It’s further flavoured with a mulch of red berries and put through secondary fermentation. Which is probably why it tasted like cranberry vinegar. Here’s what we thought:

nose
Steve – cranberries, cherries
Simon – red fruit jam

taste
Steve – grlichuckvert (gross noises)
Simon – sour and sour. bright, not terrible

finish
Steve – like a cidre, wildberry
Simon – burpy

overall
Steve – 5/10
Simon – 5/10
