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."

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.

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!

750 ml bottle. Deep red pour with a finger thick pink head. Aroma is of sweet cherries. Flavor is sour and tart with a lingering cherry aftertaste. Very good but I enjoyed the raspberry sour ale better.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2005
bottle. 2003 cork. thanks DougShoemaker! pours a rather flat, murky, reddish-brown body. the cherry aroma fills the room - very sweet and juicy along with a light funkiness. sweet juicy cherry body with a soft underlying acidity. I liked this but it’s a bit too sweet at times.

Cloudy, almost opaque, red beer with a creamy pinkish head which lasted well and left some lacing. The taste might perhaps have had a little more sourness, but I enjoyed the rich cherry flavour and the engaging dryness which eventually emerges. I confess to enjoying the wrapped bottle.
