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."

Backlog. Not as good as the Drie Fonteinens it’s competing with but still a very decent beer.

Das Bier hat einen angenehmen leicht säuerlichen Kirschgeschmack. Der Abgang ist leicht süsslich, sehr gut.

37.5 cL bottle at home. Pours hazy brown/reddish with a medium off-white head. Aroma is quite sweet, sugar, some cherries, syrup, wood and a little bit of the Flemish red. Taste is sweet with some cherries, sugar, cherry juice with only a little bit of the Flemish red and no tartness at all. Medium body and carbo. Too sweet.

On tap at BierCraft. Clear ruby with a very dense tan cap. Great lacing. Aroma of raspberry, cheese, cherry jolly rancher. Taste is quite sweet, with a gently apparent sourness. Silky mouthfeel.

On tap and served in goblet. Pours a reddish bcolored. rown color, very light tan head, almost cream-colored. Cherry and a bit of funk on nose. Taste is very tart cherry, bit of brett funk/earthiness, malty, then some citrus, then more tart pie cherry on finish. A bit sweet still, but very good.

lesifflebiere (1249) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
Bière rouge rubis rappelant le vin en apparence, avec un cercle de mousse rose le long de la paroi du verre. En nez, les cerises mûres prennent toute la place. Un peu acidulée en bouche, elle laisse encore les cerises occuper presque toute la scène, un côté bonbon très fort qui en ressort. Une fruitée complexe, pas si accessible mais c’est tout à son honneur. Agréable et audacieusement sèche.
