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.

Tap - dark ruby with a purplish/pink light layer of foam that quickly subsides into faint bubbles around the rim of the glass. Ample carbonation present as bubbles race to the surface through out. Aroma predominantly of sweet cherries. Flavor is initially sweet black cherry and berries which gives way to a tart finish and spritzy carbonation on the tongue with a very faint hint of alcohol but nothing to indicate 8%.

Pours deep ruby with a champaign like red/pink head that dissapates quickly. Aroma of cherry juice, barn, wood. Taste starts with tart cherries, with a dry woody flavor that just seems off or hollow somehow.

dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2008
ours ruby, no head, tiny bubbles around rim. smells of tart cherries, cough syrup. the flavor is pretty good, with tart cherries and a bit of frizz, finishing with the tartness of cherries. not a very complex beer, but it hides the 8% alcohol well. overall, not a cough medicine, but a pretty good throat medication.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2008
Deep ruby red pour with beautiful mild pink head fades to medium ring around the glass. Nose is cough syrup cherry, like ludens cough drops. Flavor is much same, but with a touch of balancing tartness. Body is mildly syrupy/ creamy with light tingly carbonation. Nice lingering sweet tart cherry flavor. A bit too sweet, but still a nice drink.

I had this on tap at the Happy Gnome and didn’t care for it as much as some other Krieks I’ve had. What this beer lacks is a decision between sweet and sour.

Pours an amber reddish-brown with a lush reddish-white head. The lacing is thick like cream. The aroma is overwhelming with sour cherry...a beautiful smell to behold! The dominant flavor, like the aroma, is dark sour cherry. The initial spice on the pallet is awfully nice with some overbearing tartness in the finish that makes you want to make the "fish-face" with you cheeks. The mouthfeel is somewhat thin though even for a fruit beer.

Draft. Poured a deep red ruby body with thin head. Aroma is cherries. Flavor is slightly sweet but very tart, cherries, a little bit of sourness to it.

750ml -2007 - Aroma is real cherries, artificial cherry candy and some maltiness to hold it down. Pours deep red with a medium quickly fading pink head and good lacing. Flavor matches aroma. Palate is sweet and sour. Feels forced, like they added the "cherry juice" to completely remove and subtlety and nuance. Too much IMO. Went well with the dark chocolate I was eating.
