22.12.12 Uts: mørk rød, litt uklar, tett rosa skum. Duft: solbær, brett og enorm syrlighet. Smak: først tydelig lambic, deretter sødme og intenst solbær, middels fyldig, forfriskende og kort ettersmak preget av syrlighet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a purple black colour with a very bubbly short lasting puple-reddish head. Aroma of cassis indeed with a good sweetness and sourness. the flavour has planety of cassis, sweetness, nice sourness. Sweet and sour fruity dry finish. Very fruity beer indeed!

Beer #3 at Croydon Draught Belgian Beer Festival. One of the murkiest, muddiest looking beers I’ve ever had on draught. And pink mud is a very odd appearance indeed. The cassis is very pronounced, with cough sweets and pear drops. Maybe something a little clammy in the aroma. Juicy and fruity, but a bit sweet and simple. Like other Liefmans fruit beers, there seems something a little synthetic about the fruit to me. There’s a touch of late sharpness, but not really enough to temper the sweetness. Despite misgivings, I still found myself enjoying this.

Draught@The Belgian Draught Beer Festival, Croydon, London. Sweet cough lolly like sweetness. Obvious cassis characters. Some tart sourness makes this at least bearable to drink. Otherwise this was a little too sweet.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2005
Draught: Cloudy mud brown, with a tan head. Strepsil? Cough lolly aroma. Sweet blackcurrant all the way through. A little dry and slightly tart in the finish. Medium bodied, perfectly drinkable though a bit unbalanced.

500 ml bottle, imported and doubtless left on the shelf awaiting me for a good long while. Nose is like a batch of blackberry's that have set in the cellar too long--a bit musty with an acidic wang on the backend. Nice effervesence and a nice, light purple/pink head of fine bubbles. The first taste is tame for a lambic--the sour pucker is not quite equalled by the fruity berry flavor of the currants. The palate of this lambic isn't fresh and crisp as it should be--perhaps due to too long on the shelf, or perhaps not. In any case, this is a nce sparkling fruit beer that makes for a nice apertif. I prefer Kriek and Framboise at this point.

[Draught at The White Horse, Parson's Green, London] This really gives you suberb refreshment. Very natural and flavourful with a great balance between the sweetness and the acidic notes. I love it.

also at the white horse. sweet fruity and tart all at once. think of ribena & goudenband blend.

the white hoss seems to be the only place you can get this stuff. basically liefmans kriek - cherries +ribena = cassis. the blackcurrant stuff is tasty enough, but the brown ale base is what i really like - beautiful, subtle blend of sourness, wood and malt. good stuff.

Sampled on tap at the White Horse, Parson’s Green, London...and I can’t believe you missed this Per. Muddy brown with purple highlights; rich currant aroma and flavour, sweet malts and an acidic finish - bursts with flavour. Complex, refreshing, probably my favourite of the Liefmans beers now that the Goudenband is half of what it used to be.
