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!

1 pt 9.5 fl.oz. bottle (Alc. 8% by Vol. ~ Bottled on: 070416) recommended by tish and purchased at The Party Source in Bellevue, Kentucky . Rating #199 for this beer...

bkurtz (879) - PERU - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle - Pours a deep red with a quickly dissipating head of large bubbles. Strong cherry aroma. The taste is a bit sweet and somewhat cloying, but I enjoyed this as a change of pace. I liked this overall.

NosirIwont (2008) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle. 8.0%. Best before 14.11.15. Pours a clear, deep and dark red/brown with a diminishing tan head. Distinct but mellow cherry aroma, with a malt note in the background. Sweet cherry flavour with a light malt note in the background. Finish is a tart ch/berry bitterness, with dark fruits and a bit of alcohol. Overall good; all about the cherries, but is well-balanced and doesn’t become cloying. Also, the cherries doesn’t have that artificial feel as it often found in cherry beers. 23.12.14.

From the 330 ml. bottle dated 2013/10/09. Attractive mahogany-red pour with a quick lasting off-white head. Aroma exudes cherry and fruit for the most part but it also brings out a lovely toasted malt note. Unlike other beers of this style that smell too fruity. This one still has a "beer" element. The body is medium. The taste is alive with cherry flavors but at the same time I still get that distant Belgian biscuit malt character. 8%? You’d hardly know it. Booze is buried. If all fruit beers could be like this one I would drink many more fruit beers.
