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.

Bottle. [Beer festival 2009] Not a spectacular beer, but I quite enjoyed this one. Average fizzy white/reddish head that mostly diminished. Fair display of lacework. Lovely dark red color. Heavy sweet cherry just as we like it. Also notes of mixed fruity, marzipan, yeast, mild underlying malty sweetness and a feel of brown sugar like notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Heavy sweet flavor with a hint of acidic. Lingering heavy sweet cherry finish. More of that please.

Bottle from Kegs & Barrels in Plano, TX. Pours reddish-purple with fizzy almost pinkish-purple head. Aroma is very fruity, some tartness, some cherry and wood, some alcohol. Flavor of malt, cherry, wood, tart, some medicinal qualities.....Mouth feel is light-medium body with fizzy carbonation. Overall, not bad at all!

Dark red thin head. Heavy cherry aroma almost medicinal. Flavor is cherry light tart, pretty medicinal heavier than most w good deal of alcohol. Good, but the medicinal aspect kills it for me.

Label reads "Kasteel Rogue". Pours a cherry color and smells of cherries. Very thin pink colored head which disappears quickly. Taste is heavy on the cherry. It’s not that bad, but not that good.

Mine came in a 12oz bottle from Whole Foods, with markings to indicate that the brew inside was about 9 months old. Pour is thick, with low levels of carbonation. It forms a dainty pink head above its dark ruby-brown body. In case you weren’t aware, this one’s all about cherries. If you love cherry flavors, buy it now. If you actually love good beer more, read on. Aroma: ripe cherries crushed between your fingers, with the ghost of a yeasty Belgian strong ale lurking somewhere way down deep in there. Flavor: cherry on top and in your face, like a voluptuous woman who knows how to get what she wants; ripe, full-bodied cherries, more sweet than tart; however, underneath it’s a boozy, malty mess of a brew; yeah, almost everything is well hidden by cherry, but the alcohol burn still becomes annoying and the malt base seems way too sweet and rich. Hops? Not really. Sophisticated balance of complex flavors? No way! I would rather drink cherry juice or cherry nectar, and then go drink a better beer. Cheers!
