Well, not necessarily *retroflex* rhotic ... more like uvular rhotic, as could be expected, but I don't know what's the CXS for that - if there even is one? This actually only occurs in the words "Wirl" and "Bräk"/"Brän". And (partial?) voicing of the [X] would easily explain the latter two... But, can anyone else hear this??
