Dark amber or brown or maybe a tinge of red? Aroma is cherries - lots of dark cherries. Flavor is more cherries with some sour notes to it. Finish is a bit sweet and more cherries. I would venture a guess that this would be excellent with some dark chocolate. However, one bit bottle of this is more than enough in one night.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Bottles on 070924 according to the bottle, 11/07 according to the cork. Pour is red amber, dark, velvety and a pretty pink head. Aroma is full of cherries, strong bittersweet cherries. There is a faint hint of musty Belgian beer, sweet malt yeast. Flavor is very sweet, almost like sparkling cherry juice. This is one of the most fruity-fruit beers I have had, but its one of the more drinkable of the class. The redeeming feature of this beer is that it does close with some malt characteristics with the sourness of the cherries.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2014 Bottle 33 cl called Kasteel Rouge. Pours a clear red with a medium white head and a cherry-like aroma. The taste is fruity, mostly cherries and not too sweet. Doesnt feel like 8% abv, not something special, but pretty good for a commercial fruit beer

Real tasty...fruit beer might be the perfect brunch drink. Great cherry aroma and very smooth, hides the alcohol extremely well. I split a bomber of it, and thats probably too much for me because its sweet, but delicious none the less.

Holy crap, this is the mother lode of beers. 8% abv , rich, velvety, layered. Outstanding aroma of sour cherry--is this a vishnya beer or just chereshnya with souring yeast?--its appearance is a shimmering miasma of ruby and onyx. Oh and did I mention it tastes freakin outstanding? -0.2 for perhaps a bit more complexity, and for giving me (and other brewers) something to aspire to. On the TDL--this against Lindemans Kriek. (riverside, high bridge, hunterdon; $7.99ish ++)

This thing wasnt the worst beer Ive ever had, but I guess thats not saying much. It pours brownish with hints of red and a tan/reddish head. Nose was raspberry for sure, cherries and sweetness with malt notes. Flavor wasnt the most pleasant, again with raspberry and cherry but moderate notes of cough syrup. Just not my cuppa

Btl. 33 cl. nice mahogany colour with a reddish head. Nose with amaretto - very pure as i find nothing else. Nice body and quite long. Taste is fat cherry - not as pure as the nose but with some nuts and a little caramel. Very fine but also heavy and satiating
