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 from Csakajosor.hu. Poured with deep gemstone ruby color and a sexy pink, lacing foam. Delicious sour-cherry aroma with hints of berries, vanilla, and dark-chocolate. A bit of acidy but sweet taste, lively high carbonation. Taste of alcohol is just not there. Excellent!

I like Krieks and this started off very promising. Bright, clear red with very little head that disappears immediately. Fresh cherry aroma followed by a sour cherry flavor with a bit of sweetness and a bite at the end, all the things I love about Krieks. But then the herbal/medicinal flavor kicked in and seemed to build as I drank it. Almost a Benedictine liqueur flavor that some people might like, but itís not something I was looking for. Overall, a very good Kriek and maybe just too complex for me.

330ml bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen on 24/12/14. Pours hazy brown with an off white head. Aroma of cherry, finish of cherry. Couldnít sense the alcohol.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Pours a cherry/pinot noir red with close to no head. Looks like watery cough syrup. Aroma is syrupy fruit. Flavor is sweet cherry, much like cherry pie. Body is medium with little carbonation. Really good fruit beer but so sweet it is hard to drink.

Rando7 (776) - Iowa, USA - APR 27, 2010
Tasting sample at beer fest. Thick and red with thin pink head. Aroma - cherries. Taste - cherries with a slight medicinal tinge and very sweet. Somewhat sour and tart finish. Alcohol disguised. I actually really liked this but I canít imagine drinking a lot of it at one sitting. Itíd be nice functioning as a liqueur in the right setting.

On draft at Bier Markt: came dark reddish amber, off white modest head. Most distinct cherry cola nose ever on a beer. Tastes like an organic cherry cola with medium body and long finish. Unique to say the least but not my thing really. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

When I purchased this beer it didnt say Kriek on the label, just Kasteel Rouge. I didnít read the fine print. Boy was I surprised. Normally I do not buy fruit beers. However itís very good. Itís wounderful to look at, a reddish brown. Almound vanilla nose. Mild sour cherry taste very smooth. Dry clean finish. A Belgium Sour?

Tap @ Monkís Cafe, Philadelphia. Pours a deep reddish-brown with a pinkish head. Aroma is strong cherry with a bit of almond and malt detectable (likely from the cherry pits). Taste is strong cherry, dissolving into carbonation with a bit of an alcohol aftertaste. I was surprised at the effervescence of this beer. Heavily fruit beers are not usually my bag, but this was pretty good.

A tasting at Three Cellars Milwuakee. Deep Red. Very Cherry and very crisp. Not overly sweet. This is a great holiday beer. Maybe the best Fruit beer I have had.
