Les Petits Plaisirs: Kasteel Rouge

My general approach to gastronomic exploits include the statement from "When Harry met Sally" - I'll have what she's having. I was looking around the tables in an outdoor cafe, when I spotted quite a few glasses of reddish drink in a snappy tall glass. This turned out to Kasteel Rouge, made by a Belgian family-run brewery since 1826. It has a nice flavour of dark cherries to the base of ale, without sugary sweetness that makes other beers taste like lemonade.

I have to say, I don't like cherry flavour in anything and generally, shudder at the idea of fruit-flavoured beer, but this works well as a refreshing mid-afternoon aperitif.
