COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 labeled Kasteel Rouge. Pours dark ruby red color with pinkish head. Cherry candy aroma. Sugary sweet artificial cherry flavor with some tartness. Medium body with lively carbonation. Way too sweet and articficial tasting for me.

Mine came in a 12oz bottle from Whole Foods, with markings to indicate that the brew inside was about 9 months old. Pour is thick, with low levels of carbonation. It forms a dainty pink head above its dark ruby-brown body. In case you weren’t aware, this one’s all about cherries. If you love cherry flavors, buy it now. If you actually love good beer more, read on. Aroma: ripe cherries crushed between your fingers, with the ghost of a yeasty Belgian strong ale lurking somewhere way down deep in there. Flavor: cherry on top and in your face, like a voluptuous woman who knows how to get what she wants; ripe, full-bodied cherries, more sweet than tart; however, underneath it’s a boozy, malty mess of a brew; yeah, almost everything is well hidden by cherry, but the alcohol burn still becomes annoying and the malt base seems way too sweet and rich. Hops? Not really. Sophisticated balance of complex flavors? No way! I would rather drink cherry juice or cherry nectar, and then go drink a better beer. Cheers!

Dark brownish red pour with a thin, pinkish-white head. Aroma of malt and cherries. Flavor is sweet and fruity, heavy on the cherries. Fairly decent for a fruit beer.

Yummy and delicious rival to Lindemans Kriek Lambic. Mainly fermented cherries, but also with the love of the some malt. Mainly cherries though. Quite delicious and wonderful.

Clouded violet pour. Head forms a pink ring around the glass. Cherry sweet aroma. Taste is a great mix of cherries and tartness. Probably the best fruit beer I’ve ever had.

harrisoni (16837) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2009
33cl bottle from Dranken Geers. I’m sorry am I missing something here?? How did this beer get such a high score for 403 people?? Musty fake cherry aroma, clearly has sweetened cherry juice added to it. Yes it has a bit of flemish ale character to it, but it is just overly dominated by a sugar kiddie sweet cherry flavour. Yes perfectly drinkable, but not a particularly good fruit beer. If you want a sugary sweet, enhanced children’s drink then you can get them in the local pub in the alcopops section. Does this sound harsh?? Yeah, probably, yes I enjoyed it, but I like sweet sugary fruity drinks. Gets the default 2.3 score I’m afraid for being drinkable, but not really a beer.

judasbeer (431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 1, 2009
Deep ruby/garnet red color with half-finger sized pink head. Moderate sweet, quite tart cherry aroma. Syrupy sweet alcoholic-dark cherries in the flavor with just a slight belgian dark ale character. Medium alcoholic edge at the medium. Tart fruity and warming alcoholic feel in the finish. A pleasant dessert or maybe? aperitif beer.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2009
A clear dark red colored beer, with a dark rose foamy head. The aroma is sweet with a lot of cherries. The taste is sweet, fruity, dark cherries, with some bitter and alcohol. The aftertaste is dry, sweet with a little bitter and warm.

Sampled at Pints for Pets. Has a great cherry pie aroma, sweet and musky and satisfying. Dark ruby red clear with a thin off-white head. Medium heavy sugary body with medium carbonation. Sweet and cherry flavor from start to finish - a bit too sweet but tasty nonetheless.
