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.

Rouge cerise, mousse rapidement plate mais pétillance assez forte. Côté goût, c’est cerises, cerises et... cerises avec une légère amertume. Alcool bien masqué par le sucre. Autant goûter une kriek convenable (ou mieux!) si on aime ça!

Small creamy white/red lasting head. Clear red-brown body. Heavy aroma of cherry - and that’s it. Medium body and a sticky texture. Heavy sweet and a warming finish.

(bottle) Aroma and flavor are distinctly cherry. Elevated alcohol is fairly well hidden. Smooth palate.

Une très belle bière à la robe foncée, au nez très fruité avec une pointe acidulée et à la bouche ronde et souple tout en gardant une belle ampleur. Un régal pour démarrer la soirée

Sampled at Pizza Port Belgian Beer Party and liked it. Was able to pick up a couple bottles at the Pizza Port bottle shop right after the event. Pours a deep and almost opaque red. Thin layer of pinkish head which quickly disappears. Love the aroma -- rich mature cherry smell. Dark cherries dominate the flavor which is predominately sweet but there is a nice tartness as well. There is also a hint of alcohol, but the 8% is generally well disguised. Finishes sweet and slightly dry, like champagne. Not something to drink so regularly, but surprisingly good. A good one to try to get your girlfriend turned on to beer!

I had this at Global Brew. It reminds me of cherry juice, very good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

8.0% very deep red with a thin head, it is the strongest, darkest cherryade in the world, nice if you like cherries in your beer, I don’t.

bottle at dipalmas. Wow! Great find. Billed as the brewerys Christmas beer, this is very close to Cuvee de tomme, only sweeter and drier. Nonetheless, this is excellent. Choc covered cherries. Yum.

Holy crap, this is the mother lode of beers. 8% abv , rich, velvety, layered. Outstanding aroma of sour cherry--is this a vishnya beer or just chereshnya with souring yeast?--its appearance is a shimmering miasma of ruby and onyx. Oh and did I mention it tastes freakin’ outstanding? -0.2 for perhaps a bit more complexity, and for giving me (and other brewers) something to aspire to. On the TDL--this against Lindemans Kriek. (riverside, high bridge, hunterdon; $7.99ish ++)
