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…

Had this on-tap at Wells Ales & Lagers. Pours a reddish foggy blob. No head off a good pour by the ’tender. Nose is soft and full of cherries. Flavor is extremely smooth and sweet cherries with a great level of sugar on there. Excellent touch of wood. Feels beautiful on the mouth. Smooth and silky with a great carbonation. An excellent beer absolutely worth trying.

Brown color with reddish off white head. Solidly sweet cherry flavored body with a little more bitterness. Solid tart cherry aroma.

Pours a deep ruby red with a small pink tinted head. I can smell it as I am typing the appearance and it smells like ripe tart fresh picked cherries with a hint of brown sugar. Very tart acidity with a good dose of cherries and a powerful punch of acidity. Very nice and tart and delicious.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2007
Pours a reddish brown, almost a watered down pink color. Smells sour and of tart cherries. Taste is slightly sour and carbonated at first but finishes with the right amount of cherry tartness. I find this very easy to drink and not as sour as some of the other fruit beers. Not quite sure why this is labeled as a flemish sour? Doesn’t taste like others in the variety.

Very great fruitbeer, which can be used for aperitif, maybe some will find it too sour and the framboise could be the better choice. Has the right sourness, but also some perfume/grape flavor, which can be a challenge. Great beer

Tejas (989) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2007
Good appearance and great lacing on the glass. Tingly palate. Generally not my favorite style but this is really good. Very drinkable. Goes down quickly in big sips. Little funky yeast flavor in there on the aftertaste but overall just really sour and cherry flavor. Does get a tad too sour for me though as it warms up. Maybe that’s why Im taking big sips, to finish it?

Pours a blood red with a delicious aroma of cherries and a mild tartness. The flavor is soft in the beginning, building up momentum to a bubbly and light sour cherry flavor, followed by an assertive sour aftertaste which can take you by surprise. Excellent, though a bit pricey

2006 bottle, pours deep red with a thin and bubbly light pink head. Aroma is nothing but full on cherries almost as if I cut into the actual fruit and took a big sniff. A tart smell is also present. Taste is very nice and echos the smell. Tart and tangy, this one has full flavor of nice tart cherries with a sour punch there in at the end. This really is an excellent fruit beer. I really like this one, I just wish it wasn’t 6 bucks a bottle.

In my humble opinion, this is the best beer I have ever tasted. The color, the texture, the taste that explodes in your mouth. Picture a cherry pie meeting the best texture and aroma in a beer that you have ever had. I have seen this sold in 6 oz. glasses for $6 each at a few bars here in Houston. My favorite beer.
