3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tmavší červená barva, lehce zakalená. Pěna načervenalá a nízká, ale držící. Ve vůni dominují višně. Pivo spíše středně, až méně plné. Říz nižší. Velmi sladké, v chuti opět dominují višně a mírná tříslovinová nakyslost, dojezd sušší. Dobré, ale celý večer bych to pít nedokýzal.

Dark red color, lightly rose head. Aroma and taste of cherry and spices. Medium body and average carbonation. I’m not a fan of fruit beer, but this one is quite enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (330 ml). Deep red with a small reddish-beige head and little lacing. Aroma is completely dominated by sweet cherries with light alcohol and spices notes. Taste is sweet and the cherries, while still being there, are far less present than in the aroma. There’s also light spices and a touch of alcohol as well as hints of caramel. Medium body (light for the abv). Moderate carbonation. Syrupy mouthfeel. Bland finish. The aroma is quite interesting, but the other features of the beers are artifical and boring. The Kasteel Donker characterics aren’t really present in that one (I don’t know what are the proportions of the blend). Not very tasty and not easily drinkable either.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’m certain I’ve had this before, but I apparently never rated it. Jolly rancher cherry aroma. Dark ruby, thin pinkish tan head, good lace. Jolly rancher or airheads cherry flavor. Cripes that is sweet. Light body. Enjoyable, but not terribly beery, and perhaps a little over the top with the sweetness.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Une robe rouge rubis comme du vin, une carbo tres faible pas de collet,
Aromes uniquement porte sur la liqueure de cerise.
Assez ronde, a nouveau la dominante cerise ecrase tout. Trop de sucre

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Kasteel Rogue (Castle Red) on tap at Record St. Brewing (sweet new place!) in Reno, NV. Brouwerij Van Honsenbrouck also has a pretty sweet website. Poured in a Kasteel "chalice" this beer has a dark ruby-red color and a quickly dissapating light pink head. Leaves little lacing. The aroma is a pretty good mix of sweet and tart, and was mellower than I was expecting, but refreshing. The taste is more on the sweet cherry side, betwen the cherries and the malt/yeast character, but is just tart enough to take notice and provide a little balance. There was a certain cough syrup aspect that I could not neglect to mention, but it was tame, and did not detract much from a solid beer with a great mouthfeel. Maybe I would’ve rated even higher if not for this subtle quality, though. Barely noticeable alcohol presence...8%, really!? Perfect brew for an after dinner sipper. Recomended."
