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.

Wow! another Absolutely great Kasteel beer! I first tasted this one in some bar in Amsterdam a few months ago and I was absolutely impressed. I found a place to buy a bottle and have it home. Served in a Kasteel glass. Very beautiful cherry red colour, with wonderful ruby reflections when hold it to the light. Pinky creamy foam, like a cherrie ice cream, that last just for a second. Smells of cherries, marzipan, apple pie, bitter almonds or Amaretto. A like brandy flavor, tastes of cherries, vanilla, apricot, acid notes from the cherries, but is also sweet, nice balanced, and I find even some pepper.

I’m not ashamed to admit, i LOVE fruity beers. I love Abt 12 and Rochefort 10 as much as the next guy, but, a fruit beer that tastes good, I’m definitely down with. Had it on tap at the Canal Street Pub. Came out in a snifter style glass, was a very nice dark red color with a thin white head on it. The smell was that of, as the name suggests, cherries. Only it was mor elike pie filling cherries, sour, yet sweet. The taste was sour cherry. It was delicious. The beer went down extremely smooth, and the cherry taste never diminished. If you like lambics in the vein of Lindemans, give this one a whirl, it has a lot more kick behind it at 8%.

Kasteel Rouge bottle at home. Ruby body. Nose of cherry. Taste of cherry, sugar and sourness. Very sweet and easy to sip (in small doses.)

Eructoblaster (3790) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 1, 2009
Bottle - 330ml. Pours a dark ruby body with average carbonation and a diminishing off-white bubbly head. Wonderful malty/hoppy aroma with strong cherry hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Well balanced taste that hides the alcohol perfectly. Ends with a good, warming bittersweet/sour finish. Excellent fruit beer!

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2009
Corked bottle, labeled as ’rouge’. Pours like a fine shirazz, deep ruby with violet highlights and a rosy red bacbone. The pour yields a surprisingly thick and vibrant head of magenta. Aroma is a velvety ribbon of chocolate-coated cherries after one takes a bite of half the candy, leaving the drippings to fumigate the immediate area with hints of cherry tree bark and oak cask. Flavor is a tingly melding of cherry juice and a Sprite knock-off, almost like a cherry juice mimosa. A lingering dark cherry trail is left along the tongue so other taste buds can find thei way in the future. A very nice and refreshing beer; highly recommended.

jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - APR 15, 2009
Cereja! Coloração vermelha com espuma rosa volumosa e de média duração. Aroma e sabor de cereja, com leve amargor e adocicado, bem equilibrados e harmônicos. Muito semelhante à Belle-Vue Kriek. Carbonatação média/alta. Bom conjunto. Agradável.

Deep red with a small, but lasting head. Very nice cherry flavor for not being a real kriek. A keeper!

NickTheElder (25) - California, USA - APR 10, 2009
A deep red with a light head. A sour cherry candy aroma, or cherry pie filling. A very good dessert beer to sip, as mspindler said might bee great with ice cream. Full of cherry flavor very sweet.
