97 Rating – Brouwerij Rodenbach – Alexander

Responses from master brewer Rudi Ghequire.

BC: Who came up with this beer’s recipe?
This recipe was made in 1986 for the 200-year birthday celebration of one of the founders of the brewery, Alexander Rodenbach. Before this batch, it was last brewed in 2000.  

BC: What’s your favorite aspect of this beer (flavor, aroma, etc.)?
The cherry nose in combination with the green apple aroma, followed by the refreshing aftertaste. 

BC: Where does this beer’s name come from?
Inspired by name of the founder of our brewery, Alexander Rodenbach.

BC: Is this your “desert island beer?”
If I could only bring one bottle with me, it’d be Vintage 2013. If I could bring a second, it’d be Alexander.

BC: Can you describe this beer in 10 words or less?
A unique Kriek with a good sweet and sour balance.

BC: What's a good food pairing for this beer?
As this beer has a sweeter finish than others in our portfolio, try Alexander with some vanilla ice cream and warm cherries on top.
