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."

Pours red-amber with a large white head with a light pink tint. Very pronounced sour cherry aroma. Lightly acidic and vinegary. Strong tart cherry flavor with little else. That vinegar is lurking in the background, but not to the point of unpleasantness. The full, oily mouthfeel is the strongest point, adding some substance that the simple flavor lacked. Sweet enough to be an alternative to Lindeman’s, but tart enough to be a good alternative.

Nice beer. Nice appearance, lovely dark red, opaque beer, with a nice head that lasts. Aroma is somewhat tart, hints of vinegar catch the nostril, not great, but nice cherries there. Cherries in the taste, refreshing. Very overpowering, nothing else but cherries, even though it’s a thick aftertaste like beer. Good all round refreshing beer.

One of those beers that is delicious but not a beer kinda way. In my opinion, it had more in common with a wine cooler than a beer, but that doesnt mean i didnt enjoy it. Both aroma and taste were full of tart cherries. Had a really smooth and fresh flavor. Not complaing at about the flavor at all, but don’t buy if you are in the mood for a real beer.

Another of the great beers we had at my niece’s 21st birthday party. A reddish-pink pour with a bubbly head. A sour cherry aroma. A sour cherry flavor with a bit of basalmic vinegar and not overly sweet but still really refreshing. A GREAT example of how a kriekbier is made.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 10, 2006
Golden red color for the body, with a heavy head typical of this type of beer. Vinegar and citrus fruits complete the aroma. Good tartness in the flavoring, very similar to SweetTarts candy. Clean ending, highly enjoyable.
