This had eluded me for 3 years . It lacked the hardcore funk I was expecting. Bit softcore. I do not speak Flemish so did not know that cherry juice was added:.
Purple with pink ass small head..legit cherry smells...legit cherry cherry flavours.Not sour @ all. A nice chick beer sipper though to get you wasted weighing in @ a heafty 8 % .

Deep crimson with a pink head. Very vibrant cherry nose. Full and chewy mouthfeel. Wholesome, earthy and oaky, with lightly toasted caramel notes. Hint of bitterness but the sweetness definitely ruled. Pretty good flavors and aromas but the sweetness was a bit too much for me.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Sampled on draught: Pours a dark ruby red colour with a large pink head. Aroma is sweet like raspberries and strawberry licorice. TASte is sweet, creamy and very fruitforward. Mouthfeel is light, but bubbly with barely any noticeable hop flavor.

Pours a dark ruby red with a thin fizzy pink head. The nose was sweet, lightly tart and medicinal cherries, some vanilla and cherry pit, light earthiness, alcohol. The flavor as sweet, lightly tart and tannic, some alcohol, vanilla, fake flavor. The palate was sweet and warm.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2014 on tap. last night at the full house card club in plzen. at least i assume this is it as it is advertised as full house cherry ale and the manager said it came from kasteel. anyways, rich ruby colour with a huge and lasting off-pink head. some nutty, marzipan notes in an otherwise sherbetty-sweet aroma. plenty of intense cherry sweetness but in a good way that reminded me of new glarus belgian red - some vanilla and marzipan with a lightly tart apple skin finish

Kasteel rouge...if that is your real name. Pours a beautiful deep red with a pink head that quickly dissipates, yet never disappears. First impression is good until I give it a whiff. Strong jolly rancher fake cherry smell...not a good sign. First sip is much the same and a real put-off. Luckily, I set this down and forgot about it for awhile and came back. Much better after it warmed up quite a bit, but that fake smell never left.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2008 Bottle from Whole Foods. Super deep purple/ruby in color. Pinkish head. Sweet, slightly tart cherry aroma. Nice flavors. Great balance of sweetness and tartness. Some alcohol is noticeable. Quite a tasty fruit beer.

aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2008
The color was deep/ruby. The head was thin, pink, and fizzy. The aroma was cherry jolly ranchers, sweet, and acidic. The flavor was very strong sweet cherry, spice, and musk. The palate was thick-bodied. The finish was sweet and cherry.

Carolina Crew tasting! Bottle courtesy of Todd! thanks! An unclear dark red beer with no head. The aroma is sweet and dominated by cherries. The flavor is sweet with notes of cherries and wood and an extremely dry end. Lovely. Ludens cough drop
