2007 Vintage ~ Happy Valentine’s Day!

2/14/2008: Kasteel Rouge is the color of a cranberry’s skin and has a fluffy rouge-colored head. The aroma has sour cherry, some artificial cherry, and a hint of that lambic-like funk. The first sip is sweet like a cherry sucker with a bit of alcohol/cough syrup flavor in the finish. However, the next sip and those in sucsession start to reveal more of the nuances of this beer such as a real, sourish cherry flavor, some tartness, and hints of that funky lambic-like quality. This beer is generously carbontated, but not fizzy. It has a medium-light body and is quite tasty. I got this for my wife for Valentine’s Day and she did enjoy it. It isn’t as good or complex as the <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/new-glarus-belgi Glarus Belgian Red that she loves so much, but at least I can buy this one in the area and it isn’t too terribly expensive!

1 pt 9.5 fl.oz. bottle (Alc. 8% by Vol. ~ Bottled on: 070416) recommended by tish and purchased at The Party Source in Bellevue, Kentucky . Rating #199 for this beer...

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2008

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 12, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2008 Bottled. Rubyish brown colour with a small pinkish head. Aroma is rather sweet cherries, but at the same time some mild sour notes lurking in the background. Quite real cherries in both aroma and flavour. Except for cherries the flavour also has some sweet malts and only slight sour notes. More a sweet cherry beer than sour one, making it very refreshing.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 11, 2008
Draft at Eulogy in Philly. Pours deep cherry brown with a pale pink head. Strong aroma of cherry kool aid powder. As far as flavor, it pretty much matches the aroma. Cherries and malt. There is a fair amount of sweetness, and very little tartness, making this the perfect beer for the girls (or Cheapdark). Not much complexity going on, and perhaps an "alcopop" from the beer snob standpoint. I enjoyed it, but I think it needs some sourness or bitterness to get it to the next level.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - FEB 10, 2008
750 ml bottle dated 1/07 from West Lakeview Liquors in Chicago. Dark brown with red tint, tiny brown head. Lots of sweet/sour cherry aroma and slight earthiness. Sweet dirty Michigan red cherries, it’s like I can even taste the pits, slight earthiness, tart, very nice. Medium bodied and well carbonated. Very nice.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - FEB 6, 2008
Rouge bottling. Medium towards deep brownish amber with reddish highlights and a slightly pinkish head. Aroma was cherry lifesavers, but not cloying. Flavor was also cherry lifesavers with a very faint tartness on the finish to prevent it from being cloying. This was better than it should have been.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Bottle. Poured a very dark brownish red with not much of a head, but what’s there is slightly pink. Aroma smells like a cherry life saver, more sweet than fruity. Taste is slightly tart and very sweet to start and the tartness takes over the finish. A tad bit of real fruity sourness begins to come out after a while. An interesting brew.
