2007 Vintage ~ Happy Valentines Day!

2/14/2008: Kasteel Rouge is the color of a cranberrys skin and has a fluffy rouge-colored head. The aroma has sour cherry, some artificial cherry, and a hint of that lambic-like funk. The first sip is sweet like a cherry sucker with a bit of alcohol/cough syrup flavor in the finish. However, the next sip and those in sucsession start to reveal more of the nuances of this beer such as a real, sourish cherry flavor, some tartness, and hints of that funky lambic-like quality. This beer is generously carbontated, but not fizzy. It has a medium-light body and is quite tasty. I got this for my wife for Valentines Day and she did enjoy it. It isnt as good or complex as the <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/new-glarus-belgi Glarus Belgian Red that she loves so much, but at least I can buy this one in the area and it isnt too terribly expensive!

1 pt 9.5 fl.oz. bottle (Alc. 8% by Vol. ~ Bottled on: 070416) recommended by tish and purchased at The Party Source in Bellevue, Kentucky . Rating #199 for this beer...

Krāsa brūnganīgi sarkana. Aromātā ķiri ar kaut ko līdzīgu vīnam vai vēl kaut kam. Arī garā ķiri un tumsnējs vīna tonis. Patīkama un interesanta gara. Nepatīk nedaudz sintētiskās piegaras, sintētiskā gāzīte. Garīgs, bet nedaudz sintētisks.

The cherry taste seems a little overwhelming and not natural. Still goes along with the base of the beer quite well. Seemed too sweet at first, but once you get used to it, its good.

Najlepszy z wiśniowych lambikw, jakie znam. Alkohol robi tu robotę. Szklanka z nżką, czuję się jak dziewczyna. Trudno.

anstei (1953) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 21, 2017
Bottle. Pours clear ruby. Aroma is artificial infused cherries, stone. Body is heavy and sweet, artificial cherries, sticky. Cherry palate, but still not a nice one. If you like cherry infusions, why not, but otherwise rather no.

Surprisingly good. The estery softness and caramel-like qualities of the Donker and the cherries mix rather well!
