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…

Burgunder noe tåkete med lavt rosabeige skum. Lukter sure kirsebær og jordbær. Sursyrlig smak, god bærsødme, ikke for søt. Kort. Stikky

krumbum (752) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Smells of delicious tart cherry. Reddish brown with ring of white head.syrupy cherry over a woody body. Wish it was more tart but good will age one for a bit.

thellgren (534) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2015
0.75 l bottle from airport shop in Brussels. Very deep and dark red colour with pink head. At first you will taste cherries but after you have swallowed your throat will feel something sour. Yes, the Flemish sour ale comes through the sweetness. To call this cuvee sweet and sour would describe the taste better than just plain brut. You won’t have these kind of flavours in sparkling wines.

thirstyrabbit (1537) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 27, 2015
375 ml bottle. Ruby red body, medium head. Aroma has sweet cherry jam. Taste has sweet cherry/ripe raspberry juice. Very sweet, this didn’t need to be sweetened so much. Low tartness in the finish. I don’t detect much complexity behind this wall of sugar. If it really is a blend of different vintages then it’s lost to me. Simple and somewhat refreshing (however, the sweetness really creeps up) but generally not interesting.

huineman (454) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 23, 2015
Cherry ruby red, clean and crisp. Pinkish short-lived head. High aromas of cherry, kirsch and yeast. Dry, pungent and sheer sour. Subtle persistence. Very nice in its style.

rdixon77 (1699) - Georgia, USA - APR 11, 2015
Old rating. Red purple color. Huge cherry with caramel malty base. Big fruity sweetness with just a little bit of a tart edge. Maybe a bit cloying for being a sour, but not bad at all.
