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.

Kauge (484) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle. Dark ruby. Head light greyish beige. Nose fresh cherry yoghurt, not much else but a note of malts in the background. Taste is somewhat subtler and darker with some roastiness and moderate bitterness, but still very cherry-dominated, with a hint of alcohol. Body medium, carbonation average, finish somewhat dry. Not a fan of cherry beers, can’t really enjoy it much. But not bad.

Excalibur123 (237) - Soria, SPAIN - DEC 19, 2014
Vierte rojo oscuro con media corona de espuma perdurando una fina capa en la copa; en nariz aromas a cerezas, jarabe y piruleta. En boca entrada media y refrescante con cierta acidez y notas dulces; cuerpo ligero y carbónico moderado; pos gusto largo y fresco pero con final bastante artificial como a jarabe; cerveza fácil de beber pero no apta para todos los gustos.

Travlr (14471) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle. Clear reddish maroon color, off white head. Huge black cherry aroma. More cherries in the flavor with a bit of brownies, not overly sweet. Decent.

degbert (1270) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very dark garnet with a light, fine-grained, pink-cream-tan head. Nose is cherry liqueur, caraway rye bread, smoke, and malt. Big burst of cherry and booziness up front, followed by a longer, bitter, roastier, darker tone in the middle; the cherry carries through it, but that bitterness keeps it from being one-dimensional and it stays warm without being overly hot. There’s also skin and tannic elements to it that manage to keep it off the slippery slope of candied over-sweetness. The finish is long, aromatic, and cherry-liqueur-filled chocolate-like. Really, really pleasant.

Jow (2407) - New York, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Draft at City Beer Hall. Flat ruby pour with a nose of cherry cough syrup. Tastes mostly of robitussin, cherry, sage, wood, and marzipan. Could use a bitterness kick to liven it up. Unusual brew.

Это смесь Kasteel Donker и вишнево& ликера. Темно-ру цвет; розоват& пена; аромат и вкус вишни.

ctiry (116) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 26, 2014
Red whine colour with pink head fast disapearing. I love the cherry aroma - not perfumed...very natural. Nice carbonoation with cherry taste. It is crazy this one hides 8% ABV! Not heavy at all! Very drinkable. Have 10 of these in an ice bucked next to a swimming pool would made me nuts!

The cheery aroma is dominant. Nice colour. The pinkish head just fades away immediately. Not my stile but a nice blend between the two drinks. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall too sweet.

Beerenberger (1551) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2014
A candied cheery aroma dominates from the first sniff while the garrnet hued pour with a short lived pinkish head, continues the cheery theme. Tastes like a Big Red on steroids. Sweet cheery and sour cheery flavors blend. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, similar to a Kriek but not as sour - more sweet.
