Flaske delt med Ovesen på tappekveld mars-15: klar rubin med lyst, rosa skum. Herlig innbydende aroma av kirsebær, mandler og litt humle. Smaken er minst like god. Kan gjerne helles over riskremen til dessert.

Poured from bottle into a chalice glass Appearance – The beer pours a deep ruby color with a one finger head of a pinkish hue. The head has a lighter level of retention, fading rather quickly to leave a little bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is potent of cherries, mixed with some other dark fruit smells of plum and raisin. Along with these aromas comes some more Belgian like smells with a nice hit of a yeasty and biscuit malt smell as well as some aromas of grass and a bit of spice of coriander. Taste – The taste begins with a big and sweet dark cherry flavor mixed with a little bit of a biscuit malt flavor. As taste advances some other, lighter in nature, dark fruit flavors of plum and raisin come to the tongue. While these other dark flavors come to the tongue, the cherry transitions more from a sweet nature to more still sweet, but slightly sour nature, which overall ends up lessening the sweetness of the brew ever so slightly. All the while other flavors of some yeast and a little bit of spice of clove develop on the tongue. In the end with a little bit of an earthy and grassy flavor coming to the tongue, one is left with a rather dark fruited sweet, but not obnoxiously so, rich Belgian flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner side for a brew of 8 % abv. with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. For the style the feel is rather nice as it is thinner and refreshing all while nicely matching the mix of dark fruit flavors with that of the Belgian nature. Overall- A nice and tasty brew that has a great level of darker fruit flavor all while not being obnoxious in sweetness. This is a rather pleasant drinker and a well crafted fruit beer overall.

The Kasteel Rouge beer hás a beautiful color and smells good. However the cherry flavor made the beer too sweet, wich do not please me. I’d rather drink bitter beer.

Kasteel Rouge has a thin, crackly, pink head, a semi-clear, dark red appearance, and not a lot of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of beer with strong cherries in it. Taste is the same, and the cherry note is acidic and seemingly natural. Mouthfeel is low medium, and Kasteel Rouge finishes semi-wet and highly drinkable for an 8% abv ale. RJT
