Deeeeelicious!! The flavor was so smooth, excellent scent of sweet cherries, not too sweet on the palate tho. Nice smooth finish, not bitter, no after-taste. High alcohol, but you cannot taste it at all. Dangerous :-)

A wonderful beer, the fruit is sweet but not sticky. It reminds me of a Lindmans Kriek lambic though a bit less sour and cleaner The ruby color the fresh scent, amazing all the way around.

Kasteel Rouge is red with a thin, lacy head. It is quite fizzy and has a delicious cherry flavor. It also smells strongly of cherries. I’ve had the draft and bottles. It is probably my favorite drink, although much sweeter than other beers.

I am rating the Kasteel Rouge. The bottle I have didn’t say Kriek whatsoever. This beer is perfect. Everything about it is perfect. It has a dry Champagne finish like nothing else. The beer is quad-like complex with a rich cherry taste that has a disappearing sweetness.

Это смесь Kasteel Donker и вишнево& ликера. Темно-ру цвет; розоват& пена; аромат и вкус вишни.

Habituellement je déteste les bières fruitées mais celle là est vraiment excellente. Elle possède une acidité particulière mais elle ne l’est pas trop.

A strong cherry beer that is not too sweet, just right. A deep red colour and velvet taste.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2009 Color is almost black, like a stout; head is pink and in bright light the body shines like a ruby. Perfectly blended sour and sweet cherry flavors with soft hints of chocolate, and very faint hints of wood and red wine and cola (also black currant, as another user stated) and possibly pomegranate and ambrosia as well. Almost mythical in flavor. Fizzy, round, and rich, a symphony of taste floating across your tongue and making sweet love to your tastebuds. Despite the rich flavor, it is just slightly less heavy than the blond and bruin Kasteel, and perhaps more charming for that reason. Beats every sweet and sour kriek I have had in Belgium. Even people I know who do not go for kriek or Kasteel had to admit this one was pretty damned good. I can’t imagine it tasting better than this--if it did, my tongue might have spasms. The head does indeed die fast, not that it mattered to me. One note--make sure you do not have a sweet dessert before you drink this or it might taste too sour; this beer itself can serve as a fantastic dessert. In my experience women are more inclined to enjoy kriek, but that is not always the case. If you like a truly sublime oak-barrel-aged dessert sherry, this will be right up your alley, and you might even like it better. Kriek of the GODS.
