   AROMA 10/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 19/20
rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - NOV 4, 2012
330ml bottle into a tulip. Pours a clear deep ruby red with a half finger reddish-tan head. Decent head retention forming a thin cap over the beer but lacing is practically nonexistent. Aroma is nearly all cherries. Very reminiscent of cherry Kool-Aid. There are some Belgian Lambic undertones, however, with horse blanket and barnyard letting you know this isnt a soft drink. Really a unique, inviting aroma. Flavor carries over the characteristics of the aroma with sweet cherry juice along with tartness contributed by the cherries. However underneath the cherry is barnyard funk very typical of a Lambic. This serves to well balance out the fruit and add complexity. While this beer is on the sweet side it never gets cloying and the tartness really helps drinkability. Finish is only slightly sticky and a little drying. Overall, I am very impressed with this beer and wish I would have opened it up over the summer when it was warmer. The alcohol is nowhere to be found and this is really a guzzler. I really need to seek out some more Krieks and see how this stacks up.

Pours deep ruby with a small beige head. Smells strongly of red fruits with a hint of tartness. Taste is tart and sweet cherries. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Kasteel Rouge finishes with a lingering tartness.

PowY (445) - AUSTRIA - FEB 16, 2017
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark copper with a pinkish coarse head. Aroma of bubble gum and artificial cherry flavor, marzipan. Medium body with a lively carbonation, a medium sweetness, light acidity and a light bitterness. Again artificial cherry flavor that pretty much dominates, candy, some malt, a little alcoholic but rather fresh.

Buona birra con intenso aroma. E sapore di amarena. Colore marrone rossastro. Niente male nel suo genere.

johnnnniee (4033) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Bottle from Berts Dark brown in color with garnet at the edges and a thin bubbly off white head that quickly dissipates. Huge tart cherry on the nose with faint bready toasty caramel underneath. The flavor is huge tart cherry syrup with faint tartness and light caramel maltiness. This shit is like liquid cherry candy, why did it take me so long to find this?
