1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
La Kasteel Rouge es una cerveza belga afrutada especial de 8º grados, mezcla de la Kasteel Donker (negra) y el licor de cerezas, muy utilizado en confitería y repostería. La mezcla de estos dos excelentes productos da como resultado una cerveza excepcional; predominantemente dulce, con reminiscencias de la Kasteel Negra.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 10/09/2013. Pours crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger foamy light khaki head with solid retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big sweet/tart cherries, raisin, plum, fig, apple, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light chocolate, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of cherries, fruity/spicy yeast, and dark malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big sweet/tart cherries, raisin, plum, fig, apple, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light chocolate, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruit tartness and light yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of cherries, raisin, plum, fig, apple, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of cherries, fruity/spicy yeast, and dark malt flavors; with a great malt/tartness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light dryness from fruit tartness as well. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, and lightly syrupy/acidic balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent fruited Belgian strong dark ale. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of cherries, fruity/spicy yeast, and dark malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pas fan des bières top sucrées. Le nez est complètement sur la cerise (presque trop) Un peu lourde et écœurante sur le long terme. Une bulle forte qui amène un peu d’acidité. Une bière rouge qui passe quand on ne sais pas quoi prendre ...

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at home. Clear dark red, thin light pink head. Tooth wrecking sweet cherry syrup, with a strange herbal bitterness in it, sugar replacement. Very sweet, light bitter, finishes tart. Under medium body, low carbonation, leaves the tongue dry and stale. Way too sweet and that strange herbal taste and sour finish are messing with my tastebuds in a very negative way.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 15, 2016 0,33 Bottle, Beerlovers Vienna. Huge amount of cherry inside of its aroma, almost nothing else is present. Dark red color, pretty clear with a medium white head. Sour cherry and sweet taste. Changing its character over time, starting sweet, ending bitter and giving pleasure to your palate. Plus to this one!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 330ml. A dark reddish beer with a small pink head. Sweet aroma of cherry, strawberries and Halls (the red ones). Taste is also very sweet with considerable carbonation. Medium bodied with a syrup aftertaste that again reminds me of the red Halls.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 33cl. Wine colored with a frothy to minimal pinkish head. Fruity syrup aromas, not too artificial though. Intense syrup sweetness into a weak finish. Not undrinkable, but little else either.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Colour is between dark red and brown. Huge cherry hit on the nose, slightly sour and enough malt backbone to make it c!ear that this is a beer, not cherryade. Body is fairly light. Slightly medicinal at the end - the only downside.
