Rodenbach Gran Cru

Type: red ale
Origin: Steenhuffel, Belgium
Price: $7 per 0.25 L

This was on tap at Small Bar, so I decided to give it a try since I needed something a little sweeter. The Gran Cru definitely brings the sweetness, but also with a strong sour/vinegary taste. The color is a nice intense reddish brown and the head is very soft and fizzy. This is incredibly similar to Duchesse, with a very powerful sour candy aspect. I definitely don't think this is worth the price in this country, but would maybe drink it again in Belgium.
