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 sample. Clear deep red with small pinkish head. Strong aroma of cherry with some maltiness. Intense cherry flavor, very sweet with light sourness, very alcoholic. Lively carbonation, medium-bodied.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2014 Bottle 33 cl called Kasteel Rouge´. Pours a clear red with a medium white head and a cherry-like aroma. The taste is fruity, mostly cherries and not too sweet. Doesn’t feel like 8% abv, not something special, but pretty good for a commercial fruit beer

$8.99/750 ml bottle. A red beer almost purple with a pink head. The aroma is bursting with cherries, and or cherry juice. Like a fruit punch, cherry, cherry, cherry. The taste obviuosly has cherries and really taste like I’m drinking cherry juice. Basically a cherry soda and the 8% ABV is nonexistent. Oh I forgot to mention the word cherry in my review. More cherries.

If all fruit beer was as good as Kasteel Rouge, I’d seek it out more often. It’s rare that you find a beer that captures fruity sweetness without being cloying, gimmicky, or too much like a soda. Rouge is such an ale. It works because of the exceptional balance. The ale has a brownish-red color and fizzy head. On the nose, you get yeast, booze, and a hell of a lot of cherry. A strong cherry note is present in the flavor, as you’d expect. It starts off with candy sweetness. Toward the end, the incredible sugariness is countered by tartness and some subtle yeast funk. At the very conclusion of this long finish, sweet cherry returns with a bone dry, syrupy sensation. Despite the lively appearance, this ale has a remarkably smooth body that lets the flavors shine. People that love ales infused with fruit and Belgian ales should definitely give this a try.

Enjoyed via draft and 11.2 oz bottle in a tulip glass. Pours a red to slightly dark ruby color. Aromas of cherries and a touch of malt sweetness come through in the aroma. This is a beer that really impresses on the palate. I am a tremendous fan of good kriek beers, not to mention Flanders Oud Bruins and Reds. In a sense, this beer is a combination of the first and the third. It is not as outright fruity as a Lindeman’s Kriek, but not as tart as a Rodenbach. Deceptively strong at 8%abv., it is appropriate for any time of the year.

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.

Aroma of pure cherries. Tart flavor of pure cherries and alcohol. I was expecting more Belgian ale characteristics, but cherries and alcohol together taste nice enough.
