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.

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.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2009
Bottle, as ’Kasteel Rouge’. ’Kriek’ is really pushing it. Burgundy capped with a sweetshop slick of pink .Sweet cherrydrop aroma, tiny hint of breadiness, alcohol. Way too sweet but not tooth-rotting with some alcohol bitterness and a pleasant wintery glow as it goes down. Sweeter than cherry drops, but no sweetener-derived off notes, at least. Leaves a stickiness on the lips like cola. Sugary commercial cherry beer with zero sourness, acidity, complexity or interest, but the plughole’s not getting any. Wildly overrated.

Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Opaque black-red with lovely strawberry colored frothy foam. Aroma is loads of mashed up cherries minus pits but skins included. Marachino sharpness. Excellent palate is smooth, nice. Finish is slightly thin, though. Something really nice about this, it’s not too sweet, has an astringent cherry quality as if sweet and dry at same time. A little thin but solid and unfortunately becomes more medicinal with each sip.

Had the Kasteel Rouge (red) It is brewed with cherries. With a very dark red or dark burgundy and a light pink foam. the very strong smell of cheries is very present. The taste is very sweet, maybe too much and again the taste of cheries is very present. Good beer.

Strong cherry aroma. Beautiful red aroma. Cherry flavor dominates flavor. Weak carbonation and lack of sour leaves very cloying sweet finish.

draft at Trion in New Haven, IN - Pours ruby red with a thin pinkish head. The rich aroma is all cherries. The flavor is really dominated by the cherries. There’s a bit of malt flavor in there and I think even a little hops in the finish, but the cherries, and they are good cherries, overwhelm everything else. For me it’s just short of being cloying and manages to be a pretty good beer, but it could use a little complexity.

Pyrozoid (361) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2009
Bouteille de 330 ml. Dégusté avec french tickler au bistro L’autre oeil. Bière de couleur rouge foncé avec un mince rosé non collant. Odeur de bonbon, semblant de halls, sucre, cerises, très fruité et un peu d’alcohol. Saveur de cerises, un peu de stle médicament, sucre et une bonne carbonation.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2009
Dégusté avec Pyrozoid a l’autre oeil. Couleur rouge/cuivré avec des reflets rubis, petit collet blanc mat. Aromes de cerises de cocktail, licorice, fraises, sucre de candi, alcool et une petite touche de menthe. Prédominance sur le sucré, tres bonne rondeur tout de meme, bonne sensation d’alcool avec une finition un peu huileuse. Gout tres sucré et acide des cerises et canneberges. Une note subtile d’alcool reviens.

ChainGangGuy (4801) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Appearance: Pours a clear, deep, dark ruby-hued body capped by an inch of pink foam. Smell: Candy-like nose of sweet-smelling concentrated cherry juice. Jolly Ranchers cooked down into a pot of Kool-Aid where somewhere didn’t add nearly enough water. Taste: Super sweet blend of melted lollipops, Luden’s Wild Cherry cough drops, and grenadine. Very light cherry tartness. Some meager perceived hints at actual malts, but it’s pretty much straight-up cherries through and through. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-low carbonation. Drinkability: A bit simple with it’s delivery of just cherries and jolting sweetness. Me, I’d sooner reach for something a bit more graceful, like New Glarus Belgian Red. Still though, I found it reasonably enjoyable, but I could see many people considering this to be outright cloying.
