COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This classy beer represents the perfect marriage between the fresh accents and slightly acidic flavour of the black cherries. Liefmans Kriek-Brut is a mixed fermentation beer, with every hectolitre containing up to 13 kilos of fruit! Liefmans Kriek-Brut is a perfect blend of Oud Bruin and Goudenband from different vintages, and can consist of between 15 and 20 different batches of beers. The beer is matured for 18 months, bringing out the very best of its intense flavour. Liefmans Kriek-Brut is a deep reddish-brown colour, with a pale head and wood and almond notes. On the palette, you can clearly taste the slightly sweet, yet at the same time gently bitter fruit flavours. This is a beer that just oozes class…

Mesjasz (705) - Lodz, POLAND - APR 28, 2016
Butelka. Aromat wiśniowy, ale bardziej w stylu soku niż poważnego piwa degustacji. Jest też lekka nutka piwniczna. Smak stosunkowo słodki, lekko kwaśny, bardzo wiśniowy. Całkiem dobry soczek.

sjogro (1906) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2016
Bottle at home. Dark ruby with light pink head. Sweet ripe cherries balanced with some unripe sour ones, black currant, black berries, cherry flavored hard candy. Sweet/sour blend, sweet is stronger but the balance is really good. Wonderful smooth mouthfeel, really creamy and well carbonated. Underlaying minerallike chalky (gueuze like) texture. Best predominantly sweet kriek I recall.
