Tap @ Monk’s 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.

Sample @ Malmö Öl & Whisky Festival 14/3-15. Fruity with cherries, also notes of yoghurt and model clay.

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?

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.

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

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - FEB 23, 2008
On tap at PP C-Bad under the Kasteel Rouge banner.Dark red color with very little head. Nose of cherry and more cherry. Flavors of sweet cherry and bit of tartness. Minimal alcohol perception. Almost like drinking a glass of cherry juice. Very good if you are into it. Not alot of complexity though.

This fruit beer is ok but not my style. Sweet, lots of cherry, and tart flavor. Finishes chewy, crisp, and sticky.

Pours a deep cherry red color with a pink head. Decent lacing. Aroma is outstanding. Sweet dark fruit and slight spice. Flavor is bold and fruity but malty. Nice sweet finish and lingering cherry. Teally love this beer.
