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.

Borresteijn (5244) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2008
33 cl bottle @ home. Ruby colour, pink head. Aroma of sweet cherries, syrup. Flavour is sweet, cherries, with a little sour hint, making it not too sweet. High ABV not noticeable. Very nice fruit beer.

Just a wonderful smell; looks fantastic. Very dominated by cherry in all aspects. Pretty sweet in the finish, but overall I like it. Just a bit too sweet.

Boutip (5065) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2008
Bottle courtesy of secret santa: Poured a deep red color ale with a light pink color head with average retention and minimal lacing. Aroma consists of syrupy cherry with too much of sweet cloying notes. Taste is also dominated by the extremely sweet cherry syrup with some very light malt notes. Full cloying sweet body with some average carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Too sweet for my taste buds and too much of the fake cherry syrup comes out for me to enjoy this beer.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Bottle at Peculier Pub. Heavy on the cherries, which I would have no problem with, except these were rather medicinal cherries. A little sweet, but would work very well if it wasn’t so Robitussin.

LilBeerDoctor (3512) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Bottle. Pours red with a light pink head. Aroma and flavor of sweet candy cherries, cough syrup. Very sweet and sugary. One of my favorite beers from back in the day. Nice, sweet, and tasty.

Plovmand (6843) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2008
On tap at Kulminator, Antwerp. Pours reddish brown with a huge pink head. Heavy aroma of sour cherries with some notes of oak. Flavour is pretty sweet cherry, oak and some other dark fruits.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2008
750 mL bottle. Pours reddish brown, capped with a moderate sized pink-white head. Aroma of sour cherry, with some wood and nuttiness. Tart, sour cherry flavor, with some wood and malt. Long, mildly tart finish. Cherry flavor is slightly medicinal and a bit synthetic, but its still enjoyable.

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 (820) - 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
