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.

Thanks to the RB crew in Queens! Bottled on 4/23/07. Pours a deep ruby red with a light pink head. Aroma is black cherry extract and almond paste. I’d say black cherry cough medicine, but it’s more potent and syrupy than actual medicinal qualities. It tastes like a black cherry jolly rancher. Sweet, slightly tart, and syrupy. Moderate carbonation. Very good, although figuring out a way to bring down the syrupy qualities would do this wonders.

750 ml cork and caged bottle from Spirits Red Bank. To make this one short and sweet this one smelled nice but tasted like cough syrup. Aroma had a good dose of cherry tartness and was slightly sour which was pleasant. The flavor had fake artificial cherry in front of a big alcohol taste which made it unpleasant. Come for the aroma but leave before the flavor.

33cl bottle, labelled as Kasteel Rouge, pours a deep red with a fine fast disappearing head. Nose is sweet cherries, almonds, maybe a little baked crust, the palate is dry cherries with alcohol overhead to start with, turning sweet - almost, but not quite, too sweet - in the finish. A nice kriek but fairly basic.

The pour is a turbid brown with red on the highlights and a head that was tan with some pink tint to it. The aroma is cherry. Tart and sweet at the same time, some woody, earthy notes as it approached room temperature. The flavor is cherry juice with it steering more towards sweet than tart. A bit of balanced wood and caramel came out as it opened up. The mouthfeel is almost medium in body with a surprisingly dry finish.

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - JUL 21, 2009
One of the most hedonistic fruit beers I have encountered. Amazing garnet hue with a pink tinged head. The aromas of fresh crushed cherries envelope the senses. One fights to find the beer in this elixir, it’s tough. Sweet cherries cover the tongue as a seductive acidity gives some lift to the palate. No hops at all. Cherry, cola in fact, finishes and leaves the palate with a crimson kriek stain. Amazingly balanced, the abv. is almost undetectable until the back of the throat. Hedonism at it’s best. Amazing with or as dessert. Subsitute for Ruby port. 93

bottle, dark red brown pour, hazy pinkish ring, aroma is cherry kolache, pastry and cherry filling, flavors of pithy cherry pits, cherry pie, finish is a little short or this could give a good run at NG

Ygberg (143) - SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2009 Aroma of cherries and Dr Pepper. The apperance is dark red. The taste is of sweet and souer cherries. This is much like a Dr. Pepper beer. And because Dr. Pepper is awsome this beer is awsome. However if you don’t want your beer to taste like Dr. Pepper this beer is not recommended.

from beerplanet lowe zürich beer is brown with a strong reddish hint, head is reddish offwhite, almoust pink smells of cherrys, but not in a way who hides maltyness, some alcohol in smell too tasts of cherrys, sweet, but malty too, some bitterness, yeast, altough it is rather sweet, there is a refreshing sourish hint hidden there aftertaste bittersweet with a sourish hint better than some other krieks

Love this beer, Beautiful cherry nose, clear red colour and lovely lambic kriek taste that lingers and warms you up, makes it ideal for summer or winter.
