The color was deep/ruby. The head was thin, pink, and fizzy. The aroma was cherry jolly ranchers, sweet, and acidic. The flavor was very strong sweet cherry, spice, and musk. The palate was thick-bodied. The finish was sweet and cherry.

I like the cherry flavor in this. It's much like other kasteel brews. Sweet, but calms quickly. I really like it. A little to filling with the fine bubbled carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BrettTaylor (622) - Radford, Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2015
Poured from bottle into snifter. Pours a reddish color with undertones of brown, almost soda-like head which quickly falls to a denser foam, slightly pinkish-red in color. Aroma - dominated by the smell of cherries, smells more sweet than tart, almost like pie filling from a can. Taste - taste is moderately sweet with some nice tartness for balance, lots of brett character mid-taste, a touch of metallic notes as you swallow, then a medium length finish of cherries with a hint of the carbonation lingering on the back of the throat.

Sample @ Malmö Öl & Whisky Festival 14/3-15. Fruity with cherries, also notes of yoghurt and model clay.

Flaske delt med Ovesen på tappekveld mars-15: klar rubin med lyst, rosa skum. Herlig innbydende aroma av kirsebær, mandler og litt humle. Smaken er minst like god. Kan gjerne helles over riskremen til dessert.
