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…

StueyD (1542) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2006
A dark, reddish brown coloured beer with a pinkish coloured, thick head. A strong fruity nose, slightly sour, of cherries and a hint of malt. The taste is dry, with a fizzy mouthfeel, sour cherries and a mix of other fruits like strawberries and raspberries, then there is a malty undertone to the finish. (Bottle - The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).

mabel (7712) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2008 [046-20060916] 375mL. Creamy soapy cherry aroma with wine-bodied characteristics. Ruddy, ruby-brown body with a big, long-lasting, reddish-hued foamy head. Tastes like sour cherries with a hint of boozy, bready yeast. Creamy mouth-feel, very wine-like. Overall, a creamy wine. Good stuff. (7/4/9/4/17) 4.1

[1007B-20071226] 375mL. Tart cherry aroma. Hazy, dark red body with a medium-lasting foamy light pink head. Sweet cherry flavour initially continues with mild grains and a sourtart finish. Medium body has nice sour bubbles. Interesting, great balance. (7/3/8/4/15) 3.7

oh6gdx (23682) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2006
Bottled. Pitch rubyred and darkmurkish brown colour, small beigeish brown head. Aroma is cherries and dark fruits. Flavour is cherry, some alcohol and dry fruits. Also some sourness in it, but the cherry is sweet enough to not make it too sour. Long sweetish aftertaste after a rather dry and sour feeling. Excellently balanced brew. Palate is slightly sticky, but still "a bit watery".

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Pours from the bottle to a hazy, lght copper color with off-white head that lingedrs well and reduces to very good lacing on the glass. Excellent aroma of sour dark fruit, mixed with vinegar and cherries. Taste and finish are a perfect Flemish Sour.....sour cherry fruit on the front end, followed by a long sweet palate on the end. This is a damn good beer!!!

2001 Vintage.   Sticky legs to a bronze body with a minimal white head. Subdued fruit aroma with more of a lambic yeatsiness protruding. Cherry pit is prominent. Thinnish flavor despite a thickish body with a sour cherry persona and mild acidity in the stomach.

2005 Vintage.   This reveals as much sweeter with a stronger cherry flavor as well as stronger carbonation to add a fluffy contrast to the sticky body.

<font size=-4>Both vintages sampled at Delilah’s <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/events-detail.asp?eve Annual Lambic Beer Festival. (Ratings averaged.)</font>
