Rated in the spring 2010: Served in a bottle [Kasteel Rouge]: Nice head and fenomenal aroma. The taste is a bit too sweet but perfectly malted and leaves no alcoholic taste as feared..

Derek881 (1075) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - JUL 25, 2015
Poured from a 0.33L bottle bought in Romania into a short glass to drink. The beer a deep, dark ruby color with a lot of initial bubbles and a small foamy off-white head that almost instantly disappeared, with practically no cling or lacing. The aroma featured a strong presence of cherries along with some other fruity and floral tones, and a bit of licorice and some malt. It had a strong cherry and fruity taste with a subtle sweetness, but also had a stronger sour fruit effect with a slight alcohol presence and a bit of grainy taste. The beer had a wet and watery mouthfeel with low to average carbonation and a very dry finish and after taste, which was a bit thin in the end. Interesting beer, different, but enjoyable.

Nee, deze vind ik absoluut niet lekker. Kunstmatige kersensmaak en -geur te dominant aanwezig.

Zlotta (309) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUN 30, 2015
0,33 l bottle from EDEKA Mohr, bottled in May 2014 (one year old). Clear, deep red with a medium large, fluffy, rather quickly diminishing, white head with a brownish touch. Very sweet, fruity aroma dominated by (artificial) cherry juice and accompanied by hints of almond and oak. Sweetish-sourish, fruity taste again with lots of cherry juice but also with some oak, resulting in a sourish, tart and slightly alcoholic finish that balances the sweetness. Medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Interesting but not totally convincing. Very sweet and rather artificial, but with a nice tart finish making it quite drinkable. Okay.

Bier met kersensmaak. Enorm veel aroma en ruikt lekker zoet maar dat is ook meteen het nadeel. In mijn ogen smaakt hij te zoet en zelfs een beetje zuur.

Vycap Kulovy blesk. Farba tmava jantarova az cierna, hneda pena. Vona sladka, visnova, skor ako griotka. Chut prazdnejsia, sladka, ovocna, visnova. Jemna trpkost visni, ako griotka. Velmi osviezujuce, sladke.
