Kasteel Rouge is a blend of Kasteel Donker and cherry liquor. The mix of these two excellent products creates an exceptional soft beer with references to the dark mother beer.

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. Thereís 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 arenít really present in that one (I donít know what are the proportions of the blend). Not very tasty and not easily drinkable either.

Iím certain Iíve 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.

Bottle@home. No head. Bordeaux red. Clear. Intens almond cherry notes. Sweet dry fruity notes. Some alcoholic mouthfeel. I am not a fruit beer man.

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

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 wouldíve rated even higher if not for this subtle quality, though. Barely noticeable alcohol presence...8%, really!? Perfect brew for an after dinner sipper. Recomended."

eduardovl (991) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a Kasteel chalice. A: Pours a dark and clear color forming a ligh rose color with small retention and very lacings left S: Very sweet and fruity. Strong notes of cherry syrup T: Very and too sweet upfront. Again, strong notes of red fruits and mainly cherries. Quite artificial notes of syrup. Some sourness and a mild hoppy bitter end helps to give ir some dignity M: Medium body and carbonation. Sweet and slightly sour aftertaste O: Too sweet and syrupy to my taste. Fruit beers, I prefer the drier ones like Cantillons or 3Fonteinens. I do not recommend this one [ BA Review @ 1/26/2013 ]

Red and dark beer, bottle 33cl. Good aroma, but not the better, well balanced by the great taste of dark cherries and sugar. Got a really nice appearance of dark, red-brown colour. Palate not really relevant.

Buona birra, rosso rubino con schiuma che scompare dopo un poí ed Ť saponisa. Bellissimo aroma di cannella, noce moscata amarena e prugne. Dolce sulla lingua, Ť oleosa, poco carbonata, molto dolce con un bion finale secco. Sa di amarene e mirtilki, cannella e di crosta di pane. Bello il sapore nel complesso, lascia una buonissima bocca.
