The Twelve Beers to Christmas - 3

The Twelve Beers to Christmas - #3
Rodenbach - Flemish Red Brown

Christmas has a lot of sweets associated with it, cookies, rum cake, egg nog and candy.  With all this sweet we need to balance it with some sour!  Aged in oak for more than two years this beer is actually a blend of older Flemish ale and young ale.  The sourness is mild and fruity with a slight acidic finish.  Wonderful to drink. 

In this segment, "The Twelve Beers to Christmas" I will be sharing a beer each day leading up to Christmas.
