The time-honored Belgian tradition of aging and blending fruit beers is lovingly expressed in this lively creation, named for legendary brewmaster Rosa Merckx of Liefmans, our sister blendery in Belgium where this beer is crafted. A charming blend of Oud Bruin, a tart Flemish brown ale, and Cuvee Brut, a cheerful cherry beer, Rosetta offers elegance, depth, complexity and an intriguing interplay of tartness and sweetness.
Ommegang Rosetta pours a deep ruby with bright white head. Vibrant aromas of fresh picked cherries burst from the glass followed by notes of brown sugar and caramel. The flavor is an elegant balance of clean acidity and wonderfully sweet cherry leading into a finish that is dry and light on the palate, leaving you wanting more.
