Rodenbach Grand Cru, eh? Does that have a banana clovey profile as well?
Jolly Pumpkin? Where is that?
No banana/clove flavors in Rodenbach Grand Cru. It's a Flanders Red and is very sour and acidic. Regular Rodenbach is much more subdued in it's sourness. It more resembles, say, Duchesse De Bourgogne.
Jolly Pumpkin is out of Dexter Michigan. They make some extraordinary oak aged, bottle conditioned Belgian style beers. I have some La Roja aged 20 months in the oak, it's outstanding!
