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…

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 10, 2006
Golden red color for the body, with a heavy head typical of this type of beer. Vinegar and citrus fruits complete the aroma. Good tartness in the flavoring, very similar to SweetTarts candy. Clean ending, highly enjoyable.

argo0 (13309) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 2, 2006
(375ml bottle, vintage 2004, best by 9/14, 5% ABV) Large beige head with pink notes, atop a clear red body. Aroma is medium sweet, sour cherry, light barnyard, oak. Taste is moderately sweet, cherry, light tartness/sourness, faint oak. Low carbonation, slightly sticky light-medium body, quite drinkable. Needs a bit more tartness and carbonation, but it does pretty well despite these quibbles.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JAN 24, 2006
Dark ruby red with pinkish head that fades to a ring of bubbles. Lots of vinegar and sour cherry in aroma, very woody. Flavor is almost dominated by the woody, funky farmhouse character. Cherries come through towards the finish, slightly tart/sour, but not very puckering. Very easy drink, just not as up front as I would like.

This tart, fruity beverage transports you back to a barnyard in medival europe, sipping it as you sit on a fence, wrapped in a horse blanket, overlooking a cherry orchard. Very interesting brew that rings up your DNA and asks do you remember me?

blankboy (7268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & tupalev -- courtesy of myself. Pours a hazy dark pinkish red with a large diminishing pink fizzy head. Quite bubbly. Nice, sweet and slightly sour cherry aroma. As nice as the aroma is the flavour is even better, a very smooth and delicious cherry pie taste. Not too sweet either, it’s just right. What a pleasant surprise this beer is, it just may be the best fruit beer I’ve had.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Dull ruby body with a foamy, pinkish white head. Aroma and flavor of cherry syrup and sweet tarts. Some pleasing acidity but not much wildness or depth. A simple, tasty, easy-drinking and enjoyable soda pop beer.
