UPDATED: NOV 28, 2007 Tap: overall it’s a very sweet beer, loads of cherry, sugery, somewhat medcinal but with nice sour notes, quite rich, medium bodied. alcohol is well hidden, finish is quite dry, pretty good beer, too sweet for my taste but still nice.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2009 This fruit beer pours a deep red color from a 330cl bottle. Small sized pinkish foamy head. Aroma is cherry and tartness, some earthiness. A medium bodied fruit beer. Lots of cherry flavors, kind of sweet nice tartness. There is some tartness to offset the sweet and there is some malt hiding in there as well. Intense cherry flavors. Very tart. A touch of funk. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

kasteel rouge on tap @ papago...pours the color of zergüt sour cherry syrup topped with a little pink head. aroma is tart with sour cherries. a bit of maltiness hides behind it. flavor is the same combination...along with some wood and a dry herb/hops finish. starts sweet it fades to finish dry. lingering cherry flavor. medium bodied with high carbonation. tastes like it’s missing something....

Bottle. Reddish beer with a thin head. Cherry, earthy aroma. Cherry, earthy, sweet flavor. Medium body. Nice sweet/tart flavor. LIngering cherry, earth, tart. Reminds me a lot of a LIndemans without being as sweet. Easy drinking - 8% surprises me.

On tap at Brixie’s in Brookfield, IL-- named Kasteel Rouge. Not at all sour-- very much a sweet cherry fruit beer. Almost reminded me of New Glarus Belgian Red. Very refreshing with no aftertaste.

Guest tap at 3Floyds brewpub. Served in a big Rochefort goblet. Black body with sudsy bubbles. Sweet and tart cherry smell combined, not much else, but that can be enough. Great taste of sweet cherries, but balanced with malt so it’s not just a cherry cocktail. A slight note of cocoa. Carbonation level is right between beer and champagne, and seems appropriate for this brew. Joyfully alcoholic.

tap at Toronado. Hmm more like cherry juice than beer but quite pleasant. This one has cherries and not much else. Super sweet with just a hint of malts. I liked it but would not call mit beer. This is one of the most extreme krieks I sampled.
