Kasteel Rouge is a blend of Kasteel Donker and cherry liquor. The mix of these two excellent products creates an exceptional soft beer with references to the dark mother beer.

Poured from a 12oz short and stubby bottle. This pours a light to medium bodied cherry syrup red. It looks like cherry juice. If you put a glass of cherry juice right next to my glass now I would not be able to tell you which is the real thing. It smells like sweet cherry pie filling with little to no tartness. The flavor however is syrupy and medicinal and has a dusty, musty finish that is very offputting. It instantly makes this one unenjoyable and kills all likeability. It drinks light and sticky due to all of the sugar. Overall this is a medicinal sugar bomb that is not worth your time, especially being as pricey as it is. If you want cherries, go for a kriek.

Pours a deep ruby red color with visible carbonation and a slight half finger head which is slightly pink. There is little to no lace left on the glass. The aroma is of cherries and raspberries. There is also a nice floral aroma to it. The taste is straigth cherries and raspberries. It is very sweet but appealing. The mouthfeel is lowly carbonated and sticky. Overall it is a nice beer it is very sweet but it is a very nice change of pace.
