Rodenbach is considered a classic example of Flemish red-brown ale, hence the ‘Classic’ in its name. Some of the beer will mature for 24 months in one of the 294 oak ‘foeders’ in the foeder chambers at the Roeselare brewery. Once matured, this foeder beer will be ‘cut’ with young beer to make up a blend containing 75% young beer.
Rodenbach Classic, a veritable thirst quencher, is red-brown in colour thanks to the coloured malt and derives its slightly sour taste from the maturation in oak foeders.
Rodenbach Classic is a mixed fermentation beer.
Rodenbach Classic is brewed with water, barley malt, maize, fructose, hop and yeast.
Rodenbach Classic owes its red-brown colour to the burnt caramel malts. Not only do these malts colour the beer, they also prevent oxidation.
