COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale brewed with cherries with natural flavor added. Contains barley malt. Wrap label: "Liefmans Cuvée - Brut is brewed only once a year, in July. After brewing freshly harvested and carefully selected cherries are blended in and the beer is cellared at the brewery. After a slow maturation of 18 months to 3 years different vintages are carefully tasted and blended to create the final result: a complex deep-red ale with refreshing balanced tart-sweet taste, strong cherry notes and sparkling carbonation."

Bottle. Dark reddish brown body with pink head. Aroma is sour with cherries and some funk. Taste is also sour with some sweetness and cherries. Aftertaste is sour balanced by some sweetness and hints of sweetener. Nice would be better without sweetener.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2015 Le nez m’ensorcèle complètement! On est habitué à des bières à base de cerises qui sont davantage axées sur le sucré et le bonbon. Ici, c’est au contraire plutôt sombre et "caverneux" comme odeur... J’aime énormément! En bouche, c’est plus léger que ne le laissait présager le nez : on retrouve le fruit de manière plus lumineuse. N’empêche, c’est un goût de cerise toujours très naturel. Je dois l’avouer, les bières fruitées n’ont jamais été parmies mes préférées, mais nous avons définitivement ici affaire à une bière de qualité. Bravo.

Tap. Very deep red work small head. Sweet cherry with a light tartness. I really dig the flavor, but it’s somewhat one dimensional at the same time.Still quite good.

Bottle @ home. 2012 edition. Pours a cloudy dark copper and reddish liquid with a quickly dissipating tan head. Sweet and fruity aroma with cherries, dry cherries, backing caramel and some lemon zest + wood. Dry and sour, medium tart taste with fresh cherries, dried fruits, strawberries, lemon, balancing caramel. Earthy and a bit woody finish with lingering cherries and red apples.
