i love the taste of cherry and this fits the bid although there is a cough medicine proportion to it near the finish. kind of astringent like. a little malt for balance.

Iíve fallen in love with this beer. The cherry flavour isnít overpowering it just complements the beer perfectly. Tried this in Bucharest and will now be looking for it back in England.

Dark red, with a light frothy bit pinkish head. Noses of dark red fruits, light zesty cherry and citrates aromas. Light carbonated texture, sweet with some fruity sourness. Medium bodied. Fruity finish, alcohol aromatic.

This is definitely one of the most tasty beer that Iíve tried. Cherry is well ballanced with beer and because of the low bitterness girls can drink it too :)

if you believe your beer should taste like fruit lollipops, then this is the beer for you. okay, that is underselling it. the cherry flavour here is really quite unbelievable, and a first for any beer iíve tasted. that might make me biased in favour of it, but still - this is absurdly unique. delicious.

Aroma: very cherries Color&Flavour: Colors is burgundy/dark cherry, foam isnít big, reduce fast to the ring around the glass, no lacing. Flavour is impressive, at the first plan are sour cherries, beer is very smooth and easy drinking. Finish is dry and sour.

I love cherries but didn?t know what to expect with this in a belgian style beer. Well I loved it. The aroma is undoubtedly cherries. The appearance is dark clear ruby with a one finger white head that dissipated quickly. Palate was very good with just the right carbonation. Taste is ... well lots of cherries and Kasteel Donker. Overall I love the combination. If you love cherries it is for you. If you don?t it is worth the try. Cheers!

Poured from a September 2013 bottle into a snifter a darkest brown red with a think white head. Aroma is a cherry life saver candy. Flavor is amazing! The cherry flavor is prominent but not crazy as I do not like cherry flavored beverages. Smooth & a nice subtle sweetness. I love Kasteel Donker and with the cherry....WOW! Definitely in my top three fave fruit brews.

íRedí Kasteelbier since 2007 and, as Van Honsebrouck has always done, seeking connection with a trend, in this case of heavy sweet cherry beers, popular nowadays in Wallonia and northern France. Very dark red beer with brownish hue and pinkish head, more complex than usual in sweet fruit beers, with - except from the more than obvious cherry liqueur - hints of pear, dates and candi sugar. Taste dominated by sweet cherry liqueur and artificial fruit, full but too sweet and sticky for my tooth, though I have to admit this is better than many of its congeners.
