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 bier halle] Pours red with a large pink head. Aroma is cherry. body i light and finish is sweet. I dont like this stuff much, it feels more like fizzy cherryade with alcohol in it than beer.

Nice red color, head has a tinge of red as well. Nice cherry flavor, not overwellming, but enough so you still taste beer.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2005
2001 bottle. This comes off smelling like a really raw lambic with a hint of cherries. Look of a nice red amber with no head (on a 2001, what else would I expect.) Bitterness is a really nice wild yeast and has some malt and cherry. Quality brew, but shows a bit of age.

Lubiere (10485) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2005
Clear cherry red with rosée head. Cherry pulp aroma with sour notes. Rich in sugar sweetness with light cherry, and ginger and vanilla notes, good bodied. The best of the 3.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2005
wow this is sour, poured dark with a reddish hue, nice big pink head, aroma of fermented cherries, and wine like carbonation. intial taste was a lot to bare, real sour, but it lightens up the more sips you take, not a bad beer, but i wasnt to impressed.

Sten (675) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2005
Dark red colour The 25cl bottle is more sour than the 37.5cl corked one (that one is more sweeter). A aroma of real cherries (not an artificial aroma), they didn’t add to much sugar. A really good ’kriek’. (Bottle 25cl,corked bottle 37.5cl)

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 23, 2005
Bottle in Brugge. Beautiful ruby color with a thick pink head. Sour cherry aroma with a little funkiness and fresh mown grass. Flavor is sour and funky, with tart boysenberries, very vinous, flowers and wheat grass. Light body and tickling carbonation.

Dorwart (2394) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Bottle form 1985 courtesy of willblake. Sour cherries, grapes and alcohol in the aroma. No head and no carbonation. Dark red/amber in color. Flavor is pretty mellow. Sour with tons of floaties. Sour, tart finish with a pretty dry palate. Will have to try a fresher bottle when I get the chance

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 9, 2005
Bottile from 2002. Strong cherry and vinegar aroma. Murky reddish brown color. Headless. Sour cherries and a little bit of something medicinal. Unusual beer, but the medicinal aftertatse doesn’t hit my palate right.
