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…

Thanks to KAggie 97 for sharing this. Deep reddish brown pour with strong raspberry notes. Very carbonated raspberry and bing cherry flavors. Good stuff.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 17, 2007
Slightly hazy brick red color with a thin pink head. Slight funk sits atop a cherry aroma. Moderate sourness completes a cherry and blackberry cobbler taste. Very nice.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2007
Bottle. Pours deep red with a nose of cranberry and black cherry. Average sour cherry and cranberry flavors that sit atop a spikey and tingly liquid. Refreshing.

Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2007
Bouteille 2006 (09/2016). Couleur rouge-rosée avec une mince mousse qui persiste et trace le verre. Arome de cerises, de vinaigre de vin et d’acidité. Gout sûr et sucré, vinaigre et cerise. Très particulier. Effervescence et corps moyen à faible. Serai curieux d’y goûter plus agée.

A great Flemish style ale. Poured a murky purple-red. Smelled of sour cherries. This my favorite style of beer and this one is in my top 3. Delicious!

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 cask @ the rake. Raspberry w/ dense pink head. Aroma of candied red berries. Natural taste of cherries and freshly pureed red fruits. Tart pucker finish. Creamy thick body. I think I could have this stuff for breakfast! Bloody good.

Quevillon (2876) - 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.
