2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Friends of Ham. I like almost all fruit beers but this one was sickening.
It was like drinking kool aid filled with excess sugar and spiked with alcohol. It was refreshing but
Would have happily traded this for my husband’s Kernel.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Light reddish brown with a pinkish finger-thick white head. It’s pretty cherryish on the nose, in an artificial way, with almond and white sugar. The flavor has raspberry, cherry, some almond and lots of sweetness. It also has that pleasant touch of cigar, cellar and dark sugars I appreciate about some Belgian beers. Medium to full body, almost sticky on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level. Lasting artificial and sweet berry finish. Sort of good, but way, way to artificial and sweet. 140713

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Appearance: red body, with a pink foamy head of 1 finger which has ok retention, good amount of lacing.
Aroma: Little sweet, sour cherry candy sweetness on top of some malts.
Taste: Sweet articicial candy red fruit with a bit of sourness and some malts. Sweetness is artificial, Just enough bitterness in the finish to say it’s a beer
medium body, above average carbonation.
Well not my beer, too artificial sweet. Allthough it’s just a beer not a alcopop allthough comming dangerously close to that.
Vrijdag- Tjah is dit bedoelt als tegenhanger van de dessertwijn ? Drinkbaarder als kasteel. Maar er zit iets kunstmatigs aan de smaak. Dat heeft kasteel ook wel iets kunstmatigs, maar die is toch in
evenwicht met zijn snoepjeskersen. Deze met meer rode vruchten is wat dubieus.
Wel lekker qua koolzuur. Maar de zoetstof staat mij tegen. Duidelijk zoetstof toegevoegd.
Als gewoon biertje een 4. Als dessertwijn vervanger een 6.5. Probleem blijft bij mij de kunstmatige zoetstof.

the aroma is fruity and malty with notes of lollipop... cherry juice is prevailing in taste, also some shades of sweet wine... rather strong beer... dry sweet aftertaste...

Bottiglia da 33, di un bel colore rosso scuro con un piccolo cappello di schiuma color rosa, all’odore risalta subito la ciliegia, sapore molto dolce con una nota alcolica ben presente

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle bought at Belgian Beer Internatioal in Tsuen Wan..
Translucent deep ruby red colour with traces of yeast sediments; Three-quarter finger head and off rose pink foam which fades in 40 seconds; Excellent sticky lacing and minimal carbonation; Fragrant, sweet and tart aroma of cherry, with cherry juice, light perfume, light malt, wheaty tartness, very light yoghurt, sugar, light alcohol, yeast and faint grass; Medium sweet taste of malt, with ripe dark cherry, strong cherry liquor, cherry juice, sugar, light yeast, sharp bitter hops and grass; Medium body. Slick palate; Mouth feel is dominated by a thick body with cherry liquor and nice ripe dark cherry; Very strong cherry liquor indeed. Unlike Kasteel Rouge, this one doesn’t have much yoghurty lambic or winey taste to boost. Also very hoppy for a wheaty fruit beer. Interesting… Hoppiness is faint grass nose and sharp, moderate grassy hops taste; Bitterness is light but Pils-like, quite expressive for a long, grassy, low astringent finish; Slightly dry after taste. Sweet boozy and hoppy to mouth.
Comments: For a cherry liquor-like fruit beer, this one is inferior than the accomplished Kasteel Rouge. The liquor taste is very standoff-ish and doesn’t quite blend into the wheaty beer base; Luckily the strong hoppiness was able to counter its booziness. Quite decent, but it can do better than being a liquor bomb.
