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."

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2004
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.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 8, 2004
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.

Kinz (3450) - 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.

Discofish (152) - USA - DEC 27, 2003
The first kriek I have had the opportunity to try. The nose is incredibly cherry. Flavor is tart, and dominated by cherry. It isn't however, overwhelming. Tiny fizzy head and a delightful deep cherry color.

DrinkingbuddyD (129) - Warsaw, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2003
Bitter cherry aroma. Amber in color. Little head. A very well balanced blend of cherries, sweetness, and sourness. Very delicious.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2003
Very nice beer that poured a dark red with a nice white head. Tart in taste and very smooth.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 20, 2003
Brown body with red tones. Nice foamy light pink head. Sour cherry aroma. Tart cherry flavor with a touch of sweetness backing it up. Not overly sour, very drinkable.

nickchalk (229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2003
Nice amber colour with a reddish hint, small off-white head. Aroma is full of cherries, rather sweet. Flavour is sour cherries (try keeping it in your mouth for a while), some roasty secondary flavours; short sour finish. Slightly oily palate, pleasantly light carbonation. Nice and refreshing. Bottle.

Reddish brown color with a pinkish head. The taste is sweet and fruity with a sour/bitter finish.
