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…

Deep amber with a thin, quickly dissipating head. Aroma of sour cherries, brown sugar, and yeast. Huge cherry taste - like over-ripe wild cherries, also a finish of rasberries. Amazing tart kick to this beer - it’s sour, but the sweetness balances it well. There are also some spices in the finish reminiscent of apple cider. One of the only flemish sours that I enjoyed.

Red colour and light pink head. A cherry explosion! Cherries, cherries and more cherries with sour notes. Quite sweet. Highly carbonated. A beer to surprise people with.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 NIce, and sweet, but it is not a Lambic, it is stronger, and very good body in the beer. I liked it so much, but too strong.

This stuff was delicious. It smelled of tart cherries as soon as I opened the bottle. Tastes of wild cherries. Amazingly balanced. This is a highly enjoyable beer. Pick it up if you see it!

Dark red. Nice aroma of cherries, not synthetic aroma like some fruitbeers. Taste is well balanced between sweet and sour. Do I taste wood? I think... Good fruitbeer.

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2005
Draught. Sampled at Delirium Café, Göteborg. Muddy red-ish with a hint of brown. Deep cherry-stone nose, along with a touch of soil. Musty flavour from ripe cherry-stone. Keep the kids away from this!

Superb kriek! Bursts with fresh ripe cherry aromas and flavours. Great fruit and good acidity too! Fantastic!

750 ml bottle. Deep red pour with a finger thick pink head. Aroma is of sweet cherries. Flavor is sour and tart with a lingering cherry aftertaste. Very good but I enjoyed the raspberry sour ale better.

bottle. 2003 cork. thanks DougShoemaker! pours a rather flat, murky, reddish-brown body. the cherry aroma fills the room - very sweet and juicy along with a light funkiness. sweet juicy cherry body with a soft underlying acidity. I liked this but it’s a bit too sweet at times.
