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:
Steve – cranberries, cherries
Simon – red fruit jam
Steve – grlichuckvert (gross noises)
Simon – sour and sour. bright, not terrible
Steve – like a cidre, wildberry
Simon – burpy
Steve – 5/10
Simon – 5/10
Try it? uh. Buy it? No…
