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…

eduardovl (1148) - SWITZERLAND - APR 1, 2015
375ml corked and wrapped in paper bottle served in a flute glass. Traditional Belgian Kriek. Pours a dark red to purple color forming a big, bubbled and fizzy rose head with medium retention and some lacings left in the glass. Very fruity notes. Strong notes of cherry juice. Sweet pale malts. Earthy yeasts and flowery hops. Taste follows the nose. Sweet mouth, strong notes of cherry juice, sweet pale malts. Metallic notes. Lambic earthy yeasts. A little bit syrupy. In the limit. Light body. Medium carbonation. Cherry fruit in the aftertaste. Good drinkability. Sweet in the limit.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2015 Reddish brown colour. Aroma has strong sweet cherry, sth tart also, almost like juice. Sparkly carbonation, like sparkling wine. Taste is sweetish cherry and tart finish, berries. Maybe on the sweet side although sour. Interesting, not like beer at all.

Cybercat (4285) - Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Comes out of the tap clear ruby with a thin pinkish-tan head that leaves generous lacing. Aroma has a strong cherry overtone plus a shy malty note. Cherry dominates the flavor, with sweet and sour tones, while malt provides some support. Mouthfeel has good fizz and firmness. Cherry cheers!

Maakun (2037) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 10, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown with deep red hue and small grey-pink head. Cherry pie, candy, cherry soda, quite spicy, caramel, fudge, banana bread, rye, butter. Quite sweet with very light tartness and light weird bitter finish. Medium bodied. Decent beer, bit too sweet and light chemical bitter finish are the only downsides.

Cerveja bem marcante com uma aparência linda, cor de cobre e bem característica! Mas o sabor doce é algo muito requintado e marcante. Paladar muito forte e gosto muito doce
