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."

Unexpected... this beer was bitter and tart. Maybe I need to get back into Lambics hardcore again before dogging this one out, but it was a letdown for me.

Dark red color, little layer of a head. Sour cherry teaste but not that acidic. Well balanced cherry taste, fizzy carbonation - very refreshing. Average lasting aftertaste.

This kriek was so good. Really bursting with flavors. Nice red head and hazy colored. Nice with a dessert. Malty cherry flavor. Excellent.

Nice red head and hazy red colored body. Big sweet/sour aroma of cherries. Big sweet/sour malty cherry flavor. Sticky. Nice with cheesecake! And the bottle says 5%

I know this isn't textbook kriek because its too sweet and doesn't have enough lactic sourness, but I really enjoyed this beer. Its right in between Lindemans and Cantillon in terms of approachability, so a good next step for a newbie after Lindies.

This smelled mildly funky like a kiddie lambic and tasted like cherries, charcoal, and burnt oak. Fairly tart but not puckering; enjoyable but not challenging. A good step beyond Lindemans'.

One of the better of this style that was tasted in this group. Amber, rather than red in color with a thin head. The aroma was of sour cherries and the flavor was of tart/sour cherries but was simply not enjoyable.

Ruby amber in colour with a thin pink head. THe nose is sour and cherryish. The taste is very tart cherry and crisp. Medium sparkling body. Ovearll not that bad BUT very tart and hard to drink.

Reddish coloured. Lovely natural cherry aroma. Very refreshing flavour with acidic notes.

Kinz (3459) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2004
Deep amber, surprisingly little head. Nose of cherry. Flavor also strongly of cherry, but with a definite beery backbone. Not funky really, but tasty, and finished dry after a candy sweet start. Good.
