Rince Cochon Red 7.5°

Discover the little sister of the Rince Cochon, brewed for a long time under the name of “The Rince Cochon”, the Rince Cochon Rouge (Red) is today brewed by Haacht in Belgium. This beer is very different from the blond version, since this new Rince Cochon is flavored with red fruit, pours a red color and wears a reworked label on red tones. The character of this beer lies in its dark pink colour reminiscent of red fruit.
However, compared to most fruity beers, this one isn’t light and features an ABV of 7.5%. The whole is topped by a thick, long-lasting and slightly pink head. It challenges the nose with fruity aromas that one can try to guess. The presence of alcohol is obvious. In the mouth, the flavours are sweet and fruity with notes of strawberries, cherries (the beer is produced with cherry juice) and raspberries. One can also sense the presence of hops, barley and malt. Do not wait any longer and … Try this fruity beer amazingly strong for a beer of that kind. You can even pour it in its special Red Beer Glass. Probably, one of the most beautiful glasses.

Framboise is a classic among the Belgian beers created by adding whole fresh raspberries (250 g/l)to a blend of young and old lambic. Framboise Oud Beersel is the missing link between beer and wine.

A reddish pink appearance with a moderate head. Aroma is light with raspberries and some tartness. Flavour is sour at the front and then sweetens with the raspberry flavour and then ends with a sour note. Tastes like fresh raspberries, with a lot of earthy peaty yeasty notes, and a tart, rather dense finish. Very well done.

Rodenbach Rosso is a refreshing fruit beer based on the unique Rodenbach beers aged in oak barrels, partly macerated with full red fruits. It pours deep red with a small pink head. The nose is sweet, jammy, full of red berry, wood and light tang in the background. The taste is crisp, tangy, raspberry, cherry, jam, light tartness, candied fruit and sherbet with a dry finish. Mid to light body. Watery palate; Mouth feel is Rodenbach Grand Cru being infused with nice red fruits – very malty with notable grains, still very yoghurt and rich-winey and cider apples without too much vinegar. Fruits are mostly dark cherries, sour cherries, fairly light raspberries, and they compliment the Grand Cru pretty well. Good!…..
