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.

Had this at Tyler’s in Carrboro. Pours a dark ruby with a very small, pink head. Lacing is excellent. Nose is cherries and sugar. Taste is sweet but then turns tart and sour. There is some port wine or pinot noir in there. The 8% abv is well hidden. Overall, not too fruity or acidic. Great dessert beer.

Botella. Kasteel Rouge. Nice ruby colour. Cherry aroma indeed, bit tart. Good mouthfeel. Flavour of cherry with some vanilla and mild touch of wood. Candy fruity finish.

On tap at the flying saucer in KC as ’’Kasteel Rouge.’’ Pours a deep ruby, corduroy red with a small deep pink and creamy head. Stays pretty lacy and frothy throughout the session. The aroma is definitely dominated by sweet cherries. Some caramel malts, almonds, and a sour/tart belgium woody yeast. Palate is soft and medium bodied with a nice carbonated feel. Taste is simply put, cherry sweet. Not complex in the least bit. Finishes slightly sour and acidic, but nice. Tastes more like a beer than most fruit/lambics I’ve had in the past. Overall, I’m impressed. Easy drinking and very pleasant. I wouldn’t drink more than one in a session, but it served its purpose rather well.

Very nice if you’re in the mood for something sweet. Fantastic cherry flavor, authentic, and not overdone. Bravo

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Pours a cherry/pinot noir red with close to no head. Looks like watery cough syrup. Aroma is syrupy fruit. Flavor is sweet cherry, much like cherry pie. Body is medium with little carbonation. Really good fruit beer but so sweet it is hard to drink.

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2008
On tap, Muddy Pig. Pours a deep ruby red color with minimal head. Flavor is initially dry and tart, a bit fizzy, but rolls into a mellow lingering cherry sweetness. Flavors of oak, vanilla, and port wine also present. Medium bodied, somewhat syrupy. Well done for a fruit beer.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Sampled at the Sep. Carolina Crew gathering. Light red or mahogany color. Cough syrup aroma. Very sweet cherry flavor with more cough syrup in there. Not bad, but not my thing either.

Bottled (750 ml) as Kasteel Rouge, cork marked 01/2007. Fizzy, pink head that faded quickly. Very red, clear pour. The nose was overwhlemingly cherry, much like cherry Kool-Aid. Flavor was cherry--too much cherry and not enough beer. poor balance. I am a fan of lambics with cherries added to them, but this beer lacked the wonderful lambix sourness to balance the cherry flavor and, as a result, fell short.
