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.

Overpowering sweet. Poured ruby red with a pink head. Aroma and flavor of nothing but cherries.

Pours dark earthy maroon-garnet with a rose colored head. Redolent of white grapes, apple, cherry cola, sweet-sour vinegar, and slightly honeyish. Flavor is sweet cherry with raspberry undertones, cola, sharp woodyness, apple cider, slightly sour dry tartness, woody and citric finish. Overall reminiscent of cherry cola mixed with wine. A good dinner beer although I got the feeling this was a little more sweetened than a traditional kriek.

Cherry cola reddish color. Smells like fresh cherry jam that was just opened. Had this at the Belgium Beer Party down at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Very tasty sweet beer with champagne like carbonation. Kind of reminds me of cherry 7-up that has been fermented and carbonated. Definitely a sipper beer to have after a good dinner.

15/03 0.75 l bottle from beershop.hr, shared with Doggythedog. It poured reddish brown body with smaller brownish head. Nice cherry and a bit of caramel aroma, acidic. Full fruity flavor, dominated by cherry of course, but some oranges as well. Mostly sourish, but pleasantly. It finishes with long sour cherry. A very good Kriek this is, a nice surprise.

Kasteel Rouge is red with a thin, lacy head. It is quite fizzy and has a delicious cherry flavor. It also smells strongly of cherries. I’ve had the draft and bottles. It is probably my favorite drink, although much sweeter than other beers.

Draft. I have to admit, I have been looking forward to giving this one a try. It seems like you either love it or hate it, so here we go! It pours a nice, deep cherry red with a pinkish head. The nose reminds me of a black cherry soda/maraschino cherry mix. Medium-high carbonation with a lighter, syrupy mouthfeel. It is a sourish cherry (think good black cherry soda in a way) on the palate. The finish is surprisingly clean. All cherry, all the way, but very well done. I wouldn’t want to drink it all night, but I am a definitely a fan!

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 21, 2009
In the bottle from Max & Joe’s Tavern. Pours a dark reddish purple with a lavender head. The aroma is strong of Smith Sister’s cough drops. The flavor is an amazing taste of bing cherries. Phenomenally delicious.

In bottle. Yum!!! Delicious black cherry flavor. Would be super over ice cream, as a slushy drink, at the beach... anywhere good and happy things are happening. Enough malt to support the flavor. Dark red color with dainty pink head.

Nose of rich cherries. Pours slightly hazy, with golden-red color. Small head which disappears quickly. Flavor is very sweet, with cherries. Has a dry, crisp finish. I’m a fan!

Marko (4759) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 15, 2009
0.75l bottle (Kasteel Roge 8°) from the Croatian Beershop shared with heavy. Poured a hazy, very dark red body with a lasting off white head. Fine fruity cherry nose, fine fruity cherry taste, dry, slightly acidic. Feels natural. Some herbal notes. Simpler than expected but still quite tasty and good for a fruit beer.
