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."

Bottle from the :LCBO. Pours a very deep red with a small lavender head that quickly fades. Aroma is wood, sweet grains a a background of cherries. Taste is dominated much more than the nose by the sour cherries with notes of vanilla and toffee. Medium full oily mouth with soft carbonation. Long tart finish is excellent.

This beautiful belgian beer has a reddish brown colour and a very light pink head. It smells of cherries and tastes like it, although with a very light oak-ish flavor and a little bit of the alcohol. All of this in a fizzy, light body which leaves a dry, somewhat sugary aftertaste.

It pours ruby with slight brownish tints; the head is salmon coloured and foamy. The aroma has notes of: sour cherries, barnyard funk, and sweet grains. The taste is medium-high sweet with a medium light sour; there are notes of: vanilla, sour cherries, lemon-juice, and toffee. The palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, slightly sticky, and has a medium finish. Overall, very tasty - not complex.

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.
