2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Teresa’s Next Door. Pours a mostly translucent ruby ted with a small bubbly/creamy off white head. Aroma of cherry liquor, a touch of some Belgian yeast esters...but mostly cherry. Flavor is very cherry, more sweet than tart, kind of medicinal. I could see having this with a nice piece of chocolate cake, but not much else.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at Pivovarský klub, Prague. Cherry cough-syrup nose with cherry soda notes. Deep clear red in appearance; visibly fizzy in this incarnation. Sipping, it swerves across the road from real fruit to Cherry Coke and sweet to sour before it T-bones a sugar truck at the final intersection. The surprisingly understated finish climbs out of the wreck unscathed.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Excelent aroma, fruity but not so swetty or disgusting, is not perfum, is real cherries and berries. Red color adn pinky head, makes an atractive contrast for this beer, I really enjoyed this one, it is the true that fruit and malts can be good in adequate proportion

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2012 33cl bottle.
Pours ruby dark red with a thick red/rosée head.
Aroma is loaded with cherries and notes of yeast.
Taste is again filled with cherries, sugary and a very slight touch of sour / yeast.
Thick and creamy, real cherries, the beer is a monster of goodness. Very drinkable for 8%abv.

Thanx oh6gdx. Bottled as "Kastell Rouge". Dark red in color, minor red head with lacings. The aroma is sweet cherry. The flavor doesn’t reveal much of the alcohol. Sweet with cherry

Bottle, "Kastell Rouge". Maroon pour with a thin light pink head. Aroma of cherries and bread. Taste of cherries, gingerbread and yeast. Really sweet, think Hoegarden and cherry juice.
