Castle Brewery Van Honsebrouck
Brewery: Brouwerij Van Honsebrouck
Style: Fruit Beer
Format: 330ml Bottle
Kasteel Rouge is aptly named for it's deep, dark red colour brought on by the addition of sour cherries to a base of brown ale, which is then left in the barrel for a six month period. This ale will surprise many with the sour of the cherries and the 8% alcohol level.

WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
I actually didn't even know it was a fruit beer when I picked this up. Was pleasantly surprised when I smelt the beer. Smelt like a cherry starburst. Smells and tastes amazing! Hard to describe, but the 8% is extremely well hidden. Really really enjoyed this one.
Nice and fruity, big cherry flavour with some brown sugar, sherbet and toffee all combining for a beer on the sweet side but not too sweet - just right.
