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.

Vöröses, bíbor szín és fura rózsaszínes hab, sör meseországból. Illatában nagyon érezni a meggyet és a cukros édességet, íze szintén meggyes, továbbá erdei gyümölcsös és aszalt szilvás, cukrosan édes, ugyanakkor egyben fanyar. Ez a túlzott cukrosság, ami különösen a lecsengésében jön elő, és a valahogy különváló fanyarság között valahogy nincs meg az összhang, egyszer az egyikből, másszor a másikból van túl sok. Összességében azért egy nagyon finom gyümölcsös sör, elég komoly alkoholtartalommal méghozzá, de igazság szerint picivel jobbat vártam. Desszertekhez párosítva és sört általában kerülőknek (főként a gyengébbik nem) is beválhat.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2011 Bottle. The aroma (should say WOW) was overwhelming with the scent of cherries, but did have mild notes of a light bread malt and a nice sweet doughy yeast. It tasted sweet and malty with a very strong note of cherries from the start to finish with a light sourness appearing at the end. The flavor lingered on the taste buds for a nice long while allowing full enjoyment of the fruity nectar. Mouthfeel was medium in body and a little watery yet nice and creamy in texture with the carbonation being somewhere between medium to moderate. Overall an extremely tasty Fruit Ale, although it is more like a Lambic than an ale. This is the perfect beer to enjoy at the end of the day with a nice creamy dessert.

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 it’s not something I was looking for. Overall, a very good Kriek and maybe just too complex for me.

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!

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 didn’t read the fine print. Boy was I surprised. Normally I do not buy fruit beers. However it’s very good. It’s wounderful to look at, a reddish brown. Almound vanilla nose. Mild sour cherry taste very smooth. Dry clean finish. A Belgium Sour?

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.

pictoman (777) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2014
Poured from 33cl bottle. Dark red with dissipating pinkish-beige head. Predominant cherry aroma with some metallic notes. Taste is sweet cherry, not tart at all and completely hides the alcohol. A bit too artificial - literally tastes like juice.
