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…

My favourite fruit beer. Lots of flavours in there but never too overpowering. Base beer is just as evident as the cherry giving it a grown up feel.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 27, 2006
Drank in a trappist glass. Dark red / pink poor with llittle or no head. Aromas of cherries, cherry bushes, acid, sour, pink champagne... EXPLOSION of flavors... This beer hits you on every possible taste buds. Flavors of obvious cherries, cask wood. Extremely well balanced, oily and creamy at the same time. Nice sweet and bitter finish....

my wife was shocked that this was beer and not some soda and juice concoction. Deep red color and intense cherry flavor. If you like fruity beer, this would be a pretty good pick.

StueyD (1555) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2006
A dark, reddish brown coloured beer with a pinkish coloured, thick head. A strong fruity nose, slightly sour, of cherries and a hint of malt. The taste is dry, with a fizzy mouthfeel, sour cherries and a mix of other fruits like strawberries and raspberries, then there is a malty undertone to the finish. (Bottle - The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).

mabel (8384) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2008 [046-20060916] 375mL. Creamy soapy cherry aroma with wine-bodied characteristics. Ruddy, ruby-brown body with a big, long-lasting, reddish-hued foamy head. Tastes like sour cherries with a hint of boozy, bready yeast. Creamy mouth-feel, very wine-like. Overall, a creamy wine. Good stuff. (7/4/9/4/17) 4.1

[1007B-20071226] 375mL. Tart cherry aroma. Hazy, dark red body with a medium-lasting foamy light pink head. Sweet cherry flavour initially continues with mild grains and a sourtart finish. Medium body has nice sour bubbles. Interesting, great balance. (7/3/8/4/15) 3.7
