COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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…

Pours a rudy color with a thin but decent laced head. Flavor is tart, but with a lingering sweetness. Full-bodied, but not the cherry aspect isn’t overwhelming, it’s more subtle. Great beer, but at $6 cdn a bottle, a bit pricey.

375ml bottle. Murky reddish brown with a beige head. The taste and aroma were both of tart sour cherries. Medium body with good carbonation. Particles at the bottom of the glass when the beer was done. Probably the best kriek Ive had so far.

Draught at the In de Wildeman. Red-brown color. Sweet and sour aroma with pronounced parfumy cherry and strawberry nose. Strong sweet and sour cherry flavor. Very sweet but still tasty.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2010 Bottle, 375ml corked. Clear, copper-golden body, with a beige head. Quite weak nose with cherries, a bit sweetish. The flavor is sweetish as well, with cherries and some cellar. Medium, sweetish mouthfeel. Long, sweet finish with some citrus notes. I find it too sweet, but it is certainly drinkable. Rating: 6-4-6-3-12-3.1. 070526

Bottle, 375ml corked and wrapped in paper. It pours an unclear, ruby body and a thin layer of off-white bubbles. Cherries, oxidation, cellar, dried fruits, brown sugar and a hint of vinegar. Sort of candy-like too. The flavor is sour yet sweet. Cellar, dried fruits, cherries, a hint of vinegar and a faint note of almond. Medium body, quite tart and palate cleansing even though it’s quite sweet. The finish has cherries on a vinegarish backdrop, with dried fruits and cellar. Pleasant and easy drinking, combining sweetness and sourness in a nice way. 101119

375ml bottle @Hamilton’s. Pours red wtih a think pink head. Aroma is big and full of cherries. The taste is very rich and sweet with a bit of sourness, lots of cherry. Honestly I drank this and thought it was a fruit lambic not a sour, though liefman’s does like to make fruity flavored sours. Overall great beer very very nice.

Dark red pour, no head. Aroma of sour freakin cherries. Taste is just great, a huge tartness blast you then after that it’s all easy sippin. Sour cherries, with a bready malt backbone, and ya more sour cherries, some vinegar in the background with a great tartness that lingers in your mouth.

25 oz bottle, Well’s Discount liquors. Pours a clear bright ruby red body under a fizzy tight bubbled off-white head with a slight pinkish tinge. Moderate visible carbonation. The aroma is full of sour, slightly tart cherry with a slight hint of vinegar. A little chocolate accent. The flavor is tart and sweet with a nice sour cherry fore. Finishes with a slight vinegar and sugary sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slight sweet cloying stickiness on the finish. Nice pleasant soft carbonation. This was really enjoyable for about the first two-thirds of the bottle, but it did get a bit overly sweet and cloying by the end. A really good beer that I’ll buy in the 375ml size from now on.
