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…

Quevillon (2802) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2007
Bouteille de 375 ml. Couleur rouge vin, un peu de collet. Arome légé de cerise malté et un peu sûrette. Goût de cerise sûrette plaisant, avec des notes d’épices.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 26, 2007
Pours brown with a creamy white head that doesn’t stick around very long. Smells of cherries, some vinegar and oak. Taste is tarte with cherries alongside some peppery hints and a semi sour finish.

detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2007
UPDATED: APR 10, 2007 On tap at the Rake, SE1. Nice deep red colour, small head, strong lacing. Reminded me of the Frambozenbier; lots of fruit, sherbert sweeness, but with a more yeasty finish. What distinguishes this beer is its sourness, not overly tart but a nice cherry flavour that hits the tounge. A very nice drink, smooth and fruity, but with that tartness in the mouth.

Burrobuns (83) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Nice red color. Light cherry flavor - not nearly as strong as the Quelque Chose. Carbonation is light but plays nicely on the tongue. Cherry flavor mingles with the sourness very well. I really enjoyed it.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 28, 2007
Draught at Temperance Bar in Putney (London), pours an enticing clear bright ruby colour. Aroma is mostly sour cherry, but there is also a sweetness similar to cake icing. Flvour is similar to the aroma, with the cherries dominating, but also a little sweetness to offset.
