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."

Bue légèrement froide. Robe rose foncée et légèrement trouble surmontée d’une fine mousse blanche rosacée. Arômes de cerises, de chêne et de liège. Saveurs de cerises, de liège, d’épices et de levure. Bon corps.

A dark red to the brown body. THe head is slightly pink, foamy and quick to dissappear. A slight cherry sent to beer. The taste is not sweet. The cheery flavor is very present but it is sour. I was expecting a cough syrup taste...Not at all. The nose is thin, with the burst of cherry flabor, the finish is not quick but there are several other fruit flavors present, maybe raspberries. Very good.

Deep amber with a thin, quickly dissipating head. Aroma of sour cherries, brown sugar, and yeast. Huge cherry taste - like over-ripe wild cherries, also a finish of rasberries. Amazing tart kick to this beer - it’s sour, but the sweetness balances it well. There are also some spices in the finish reminiscent of apple cider. One of the only flemish sours that I enjoyed.

Red colour and light pink head. A cherry explosion! Cherries, cherries and more cherries with sour notes. Quite sweet. Highly carbonated. A beer to surprise people with.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 NIce, and sweet, but it is not a Lambic, it is stronger, and very good body in the beer. I liked it so much, but too strong.

This stuff was delicious. It smelled of tart cherries as soon as I opened the bottle. Tastes of wild cherries. Amazingly balanced. This is a highly enjoyable beer. Pick it up if you see it!

Dark red. Nice aroma of cherries, not synthetic aroma like some fruitbeers. Taste is well balanced between sweet and sour. Do I taste wood? I think... Good fruitbeer.

joergen (23370) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2005
Bottled. Clear red coloured with a medium sized lasting head. Sweet aroma of cherries with notes of marzipan. Sweet flavour of wood, cherries and marzpan. Dry and sweet finish.

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2005
Draught. Sampled at Delirium Café, Göteborg. Muddy red-ish with a hint of brown. Deep cherry-stone nose, along with a touch of soil. Musty flavour from ripe cherry-stone. Keep the kids away from this!

Superb kriek! Bursts with fresh ripe cherry aromas and flavours. Great fruit and good acidity too! Fantastic!
