Strong lager with flavouring and colouring.
Grimbergen Rouge combines the flavors of sweet strawberry, cranberry and elderberry with the spicy notes of an authentic abbey beer. Its ruby color and creamy pinky foam renew the traditional abbey beer.

TedE (302) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2015
On tap, some sports bar in Paris. Sweet acidic nose. Dark red beer with thin head. Tastes like fizzy Ribena. Only hint of beer is a slight malt undercurrent to the blackcurrant aftertaste. Nice but not beer.

puredelusion (104) - Lviv, UKRAINE - MAR 3, 2015
0,33 bottle. Pours hazy ruby colour with minimal white head, that is quickly diminishing. Aroma is strictly artificial and sugary, some redberries, bubblegum, raisins. Taste is medium sweet, almost without bitterness. Raisins, strawbery, cranberry are present. Aftertaste is abrupt and something sour, nothing to said about. Hazy liquid, medium carbonation, medium body. Boring beer, if it can be called so.

DraftDodger (299) - - MAR 3, 2015
Paris 2/9 2014. 50 cl from can. Pours high clear red with white head which only slowly subsides. Aroma like strawberry lemonade - not much like a beer. Slightly prickly mouthfeel. Sweet synthetic taste which does not last long. Slightly sweet aftertaste. In the description they promise a combination of berries and autentic abbey beer. Not much of the beer around. Too much berries - too little beer.

Dostało mi się coś takie dziwne, ale butelka ładna i kapsel ładny, no to pomyślałem że spróbuję. Jest to radler w dodatku zrobione przez Carlsberga Barwa czerwona, klarowne, coś tam pracuje, ale piany brak. Aromat truskawkowy, coś jak połączenie herbaty owocowej i winiacza, taki lekki kwach. W smaku aż się boję co to będzie. Płaskie, owocowe, ze wskazaniem na truskawki, kwaskowe. Wytrawne, wysoko wysycone, goryczki jak to w radlerach nie ma co szukać.

Deu (864) - Nantes, FRANCE - FEB 19, 2015
The beer poured red and clear. Its head was medium sized and pink. Aroma had strawberries, tartness and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, strawberries, mild tartness and low bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, tart and bitter. A sweet juice.

oh6gdx (21565) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Bottled. Reddish amber colour with a mediumsized white head, that vanishes quite quickly. Aroma is strawberries, some sugary and syrupy notes along with some mild raisins and sweet malts. Flavour is rather similar, but the berries really dominate it. Interesting concept, which kind of has the "traditional" Grimbergen flavour, but goes rather experimental.

mikkos (262) - FINLAND - JAN 20, 2015
Dark crimson beer, small head. Aroma is bubblegum sweet candy. Weird. Taste is quite awful sweet berries, bubblegum, some malts. Finishes sweet with light bitterness. Bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mtu71 (187) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 19, 2015
Tap. Small head, clear red. Lots of red berries. Sweetish, somewhat sour, low bitterness and low hops. Low carbons and light palate. Good for summer heat.

mario_giri (122) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 18, 2015
Nebliges rot, kaum Schaum. Riecht sehr fruchtig-süss, beerig. Antrunk, Mitte und Abgang sehr (zu) süss, beerig. Viel Co2, nicht so vollm. Kaum Säure, kaum Bitter. Nicht mein Bier.
