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.

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 (4710) - 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.

Holdwine (1150) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2009
On tap at Max’s. Too much like Smith Bros. at the start, but then it grew on me. Syrupy sweet, fresh cherry nose. 8%? Hard to believe. Let it sit and you will be rewarded.

Bean (77) - Saint-Eustache, Québec, - MAR 6, 2009
Candy-cherry mixed with wild yeast strain aroma. Tastes much sweeter than I had prepared my self to. Very nice color with a pretty little foamy dress.

Sigh sob non avevo capito che fosse alla ciliegia... credevo fosse una simpatica dubbel o qualcosa del genere; non mi ha affatto convinto, anche se qui vedo che a molti è piaciuta. Caramellosa, scipita, dolcissima; ha il pregio di nascondere bene il contenuto alcolico un po’ alto per il ’genere’, ma lo nasconde sotto note veramente pessime.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - FEB 28, 2009
33cl bottle. Beautiful dark red-brown with a creamy and lacy red tinged tan head. Big cherry aroma. Sweet cherry flavor and a light tartness. Not much else to say. It’s a cherry bomb that isn’t cloying but isn’t quite tart enough to be really refreshing. Medium bodied with high carbonation.

First cherry beer I have actually enjoyed. Pours dark ruby red, small foam does not last, tight little pink head remains. Nose is distinct sweet cherry, good carbonation like soda. After taste leaves little bitterness on the toungue.

Everything about this beer is distinct. It looks like Roddy Grand Cru in the goblet, but with a nice frothy head. Smells like a cherry soda, and tastes like a soft microbrewed cherry soft drink. Mouthfeel is thick and delicious like a homebrewed soda pop. Finish is dry with a strange bitterness. This is the only beer I’ve had at 8% that is actually quite easy to chug.
