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."

Ehrlich gesagt frage ich mich schon, wie dieser pervers hohe Score hier moeglich ist. Denn dieses Piwo kann nur suess und irgendwelche Beeren. Von Nuancen, kleinen Merkmalen oder aromatischen Erguessen keine Spur. Suesser Einheitsbrei.

ElManana (1034) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - OCT 4, 2014
Pours hazelnut brown with reddish color. Aroma is cherries, vinegar. Taste is very siruppy, lots of sugar, cherries like candies. Good, but not as advertised imo. Too sweet.

McTapps (5553) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle from Bierzwerg. The beer pours out in a hazy dirty brownish colour with steady low head and medium body. Aroma of mild vinegar and sugar. Taste of sweet cherries, light acid, leaves and barley. Sugary finish. Drinkable, yet nothing special and too sugary.

thmsboyd (97) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle 2014, BBE indecipherable. Chestnut red body with small and quickly-diminishing head. Sharp, sour aroma of strong cherry and earthiness. Immediate, moderate sweetness followed by an intense tart sourness. Candy/sherbet cherry flavour. Quite full in body with a slightly sticky, foamy texture. Fizzy, with a lasting finish. Overall, a very good example of a sour

Red brown beer with a small white head, medium carbonation. Taste is some sour, cherries, oaky and some sugar. Delicious.

jmgreenuk (5712) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Deanso. Poured a hazy reddish brown with a thin frothy off white head. The aroma is tart cherry, light yeast. the flavour is moderate sweet with a big zesty cherry fruit palate. Medium boded with average carbonation. A real sweety... just like me :-)

Nocturne (1117) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2014
375ml bottle. Amber/brown pour. Nose is grassy, oaky, cherries, touch of vinegar. Slight reminders of cough syrup in there. Taste is oaky, cherries. Kind of has the sugary sweetness of a faro, and only a slight sourness to it. Quite pleasant but not as challenging as the better fruited Belgian sours. I think it would probably make a good entry beer for someone new to the style though.

Tak jak na styl przystało, aromat winny wiśniowy, w smaku czuć wiśnie i wyraźną gorycz, prawdopodobnie pochodzącą od pestek wiśni.

Pours a dark purple brown body with a medium creamy head. Aroma of cherry candy. Nice taste of cherries. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
