Beer: Kasteel Rouge
Brewery: Brouwerij Van Honsebrouck
Style: Fruit Beer
The castle in which Kasteel is brewed dates back to 1075 A.D. and has seen many residents in its long history from the Count of Flanders to it’s current owner the Van Honsebrouck family. Poised on the Mandel river between Bruges and Courtrai the castle was referred to as the key to Flanders.
Kasteel Rouge is aptly named for it’s deep, dark red color 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.
