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."

Pailhead (4820) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - DEC 28, 2004
Bottle: (2001) Aroma is tart cherry and light vinegar. Pours a light reddish-brown with an insignificant white head. Has a watered down sour cherry flavor. Not as much vinegar as aroma would lead you to believe. Sourness increases in the finish.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2004
(Bottled, 6% ABV, 0.375l) Reddish, dark amber color with a pinkish, large and lacy head. Fruity, quite mild cherry aroma with some sourness. Somewhat sour, but sweetish cherry flavor with a sugary finish. Medium-bodied, sour-sweet palate with smooth, foamy carbonation. An enjoyable and well-balanced kriek. Another great brew from Liefmans.

Shag (2608) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - DEC 24, 2004
The beer poured a reddish brown with almost no head present. The aroma is cherries and molasses. The flavor is very musky and sour with some brown sugar and cherries. The palate on this is a bit thin. Overall this a very good beer.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - DEC 9, 2004
Red coloration, no head. Aroma is cherries, and that’s about it. Taste is tart cherries, quite pleasant. Girls would love this stuff.

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Reddish-brown liquid laden with sediment and pulverized bits of cherry pit. Thin, wispy, pink head head rims the glass. Tart cherry aroma. Woodsy and barnish. Great sour/tart flavor without being overpowering. A well balanced beer.

jonas (5645) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2004
0.75 l bottle Soda and cherry fizzlesticks, very slight horseblanket. Hazy neon burgundy color, lots of champagne carbonation, low patchy off-white head. Very fruity, quite sweet - only a bit sourness towards the end - a little bit faro-like caramell as well. Medium body and sparkly mouthfeel.

lizzy (44) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 31, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2004 dark red-brown. smells like alcohol and cherry cough syrup. VERY SOUR, it made my jaw hurt after the first sip, but then became more tolerable and actually sort of tasty after a few more sips. Overall, I didn’t enjoy it, but I don’t like sourness.

Pours a deep reddish brown with lots of floaties and a white head.Aroma is strong beer, lots of cherries, creating a medicinal effect, almost a little rubbery. Flaor is VERY sour, sweet cherry and a bit of woodiness, and a tart, dry finish. Damn, this is sour!
