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.

2007 Vintage ~ Happy Valentine’s Day!

2/14/2008: Kasteel Rouge is the color of a cranberry’s skin and has a fluffy rouge-colored head. The aroma has sour cherry, some artificial cherry, and a hint of that lambic-like funk. The first sip is sweet like a cherry sucker with a bit of alcohol/cough syrup flavor in the finish. However, the next sip and those in sucsession start to reveal more of the nuances of this beer such as a real, sourish cherry flavor, some tartness, and hints of that funky lambic-like quality. This beer is generously carbontated, but not fizzy. It has a medium-light body and is quite tasty. I got this for my wife for Valentine’s Day and she did enjoy it. It isn’t as good or complex as the <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/new-glarus-belgi Glarus Belgian Red that she loves so much, but at least I can buy this one in the area and it isn’t too terribly expensive!

R4N5H (838) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2016
33cl bottle at home in Amsterdam on 18-Sep-2016. Deep red colour with a frothy reddish white head. Aroma of alcohol and sweet dark fruit. Medium body and carbonation. Taste of cherry and alcohol. Not too sweet, but still the flavour is still a a little artificial. Gets a little too much after half a bottle - better shared.

A strong cherry beer that is not too sweet, just right. A deep red colour and velvet taste.

Ruby color. Med carbonation. Smells like cherries and booze. No hop aroma. Very sweet start. Tart finish. Some caramel malt flavor. Rich. Cherry tartness grounds it, keeps it from being too sweet. Med+ body. Ok in the right circumstances, but there’s no elegance to this cherry bomb.

Blueshawk (398) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
- dunkle braun-rote Farbe mit guter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Sauerkirsch, Holunder, Marzipan und etwas Holz - die Carbonisierung ist mir eine Idee zu hoch - der Antrunk ist extrem säuerlich, allerdings ohne ins Unangenehme abzugleiten - eine leichte Künstlichkeit kann das Getränk allerdings nicht verleugnen - der Abgang fügt dann noch eine leichte Bitterkeit hinzu Fazit: Ein gutes Kirschbier. Zu einem sehr guten fehlt allerdings eine gewisse Natürlichkeit

Red. No head. Smells and tastes like glace cherries, plastic and perfume. Awful.

In Darma Bar in northern Israel. Pour from bottle. A cherry bomb on the nose. Taste is also slightly sour cherry. Can't see myself having more than one at a time, but kinda like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
