COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

33cl, from De Hopduvel Gent, strong sweet kriek, heavy, clear, small head, nice brew, but too sweet

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Pours a deep ruby color with almost no head. Aroma is straight cherry cough syrup with no other hints of anything really present. Flavor is more of the same. Cloying, sweet, like cherry syrup from an Italian ice place. There are definitely other better cherry beers out there.

TrefwoordPunk (818) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2008
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

guzzler67 (1538) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 15, 2008
Burgundy appearance with a medium size, rosy hued head. Sweet, potent cherry infused aroma with some caramel lingering in the background. Smooth, straightforward fruity taste, faint tartness, but not all that complex. Lingering, sweet finish that hides the alcohol pretty well.

Lowe1983 (1367) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Pours a dark ruby color with a pink head. Aroma is mostly cherry with hints of chocolate. Flavor is also, as expected, cherries with a hint of chocolate with a little warming on the finish.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Bottled. Poured ruby in color with a white head. Aroma was big cherry like cherry nibs or ludeman’s cough drops. Flavor was sweet cherry nibs. Very sweet finish with a slight tinge of sourness. A sweet cherry flavor beer sums this one up well.

Indulgence (141) - Ajo, Arizona, USA - JUL 9, 2008
A nice dark cherry appearance with dark cherry aroma, very little head, sweet dark cherry taste and nice smooth finish, not as effervescent or smooth as some other belgian lambics, but a nice desert beer to have with twix bars, kinda like a alchoholized cherry pepsi.

2008-06-26 from bottle: Cherry and chocolate aroma with candy sugar notes. Deep to medium red with white head. Very sweet, with lots of cherry…brandy finish. Somewhat thin.

DYCSoccer17 (3446) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 6, 2008
11.2 ounce bottle purchased at Burgers ’N Brew in Davis, CA. I cannot say I have ever seen this beer for sale before. Aroma has plenty of cherries with some vinous wine-like properties present. A bit spicy with some Fruit Roll-Up-like aromas. Smells goooood. Transparent garnet-ruby body with a small, light puce head. Scant lacing present. Starts a bit tart and astringent with enough sweet cherry flavors to back it up. A little spicy in the middle with some vinous wine-grapey flavors. A bit of a dry finish. Tasty.

Grizzle (80) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JUL 1, 2008
An 11.2 fl. oz. bottle served in a wine glass (for lack of a tulip, as suggested on the label). The aroma is very sweet smelling, with the slightest hint of alcohol which hits you in the back of the nose, near where the nose taps into the mouth and lungs. A poured glass reveals a quick-to-disappear, thin, pink head, and a burgundy colored, almost opaque liquid. The flavor is akin to a cherry seltzer water. There is also a slight chocolate taste, making the beer taste like a cherry Tootsie Roll Pop. The palate revealed a light body, with lots of fizz/carbonation, contributing to the "seltzer water" impression. Slightly bitter finish.
