This exclusive, limited edition RODENBACH Vintage 2013 has two years matured in cask Nr. 149. The 59 year old cask was carefully selected by the Brewmaster, Rudi Ghequire, as the primus of the year.
Rodenbach Vintage is 100% matured old beer, resulting in superior Rodenbach Grand Cru. Its taste is complex, round, intense and refreshing. Typically, the apple tart fruitiness combined with caramel, wild honey and oak with a hint of vanilla, cherry and licorice. Its aroma has hints of caramel and oak, as well as notes of green apples mixed with honey and chocolate. The soft sour, fruity aftertaste is long and nicely balanced like a grand cru wine.

Urthel Samaranth 12 Quadrium Ale is a malty, full-bodied special Ale, brewed in a way that only Belgian Brewers can.
Clear toffee brown with ruby highlights and good off-white head. Subtle and pleasant caramel aroma. Fantastic palate – slightly creamy, very slightly sticky, plenty of body with excellent carbonation that is both mouthfilling and bright. Taste is of sweet bread crust, spiced bread, fruits, fruit bread, some bitterness, and brandy notes. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Urthel Samaranth finishes between wet and dry, with a sure alcohol presence.
Little cloudy, dark blond to light beige beer, creamy white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma has soapy citrus, some grainy notes and hints of apricot. Taste is a light fruity and malty sweetness with a light spicy hop bitterness. Light to medium body with generous carbonation. Recommended.
The third Corne du Bois des Pendus can be called “Wonderful Horn”. Adorned with an ultra powerful black dress and a fleeting beige foam, creamy and warm, the Black Horn is an easy beer to savour.
The nose and mouth reveal soft aromas of remarkable intensity. The flavor is sweet in the first place prior to ramp up on chocolate notes, cafes “old” and butterscotch. Notes of plum, blackberry and dried red fruits appear slowly and sublime tasting. The bitterness is low to discover all the fruity aromas and individuals that can give special malts.
A Black Horn attractive, rich, fine and elegant. A Great Belgian beer, a Big Horn!
