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…

Very nice. This was not a typical sour but more like a kriek. Pleasant fruit and cherry aroma. Dark ruby color with minimal and quickly disappearing head. Smooth palate with a dry finish. Very fruity with a cherry sweetness and tartness. Little alcohol presence. Refreshing.

0,33l bottle from Merkur. Aroma and taste of sour cherries is not what I expect from a beer. Not my thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Acheter à Tabac&co palais des bières dans famiflora à dottignies. Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur brune rougeâtre avec de beaux reflet ! Mousse inexistante. Au nez c’est fruité mais aussi une note d’acidité type vinaigre , un peu daigre doux au nez avec des pinsement acide . En bouche sucre de fruit présent et agréable ça change des sucre rajouter ! Un peu de balsamique en bout et une note acide légère. Malte présent mais bien équilibrée peu être car c’est une basse de brune ? Changement radical et appréciable par rapport aux autres "kriek" du marché.

mkel07 (5228) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2016
Bottle from Beer Cartel 120916. While this beer doesn’t look all that great the flavour certainly more than makes up for it. Tart cherry with a big sour aftertaste and the slightest hint of something sweet as well.

Gehbe (268) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - OCT 4, 2016
Ruby brown with a small light tan head and nice lacing. Rich aroma of cherries and cherry pits, caramel, dried apples, hints of spice and funk. Tastes medium sweet and sour, very light crispy bitterness in the finish. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, fairly sticky. Amazing aroma, but I wish it was dryer.

SimonBlok (311) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2016
33cl bottle at home. Appearance: deep ruby red with medium light pink head. Aroma: sour nose with notes of cherries and slight strawberry and some leather far away. Taste: heavy sweetness and low bitterness with pleasant tartness. Strong cherry and blueberries. Palate: medium bodied, sticky texture and soft carbonation.

Blueshawk (406) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
- tiefrote Farbe mit leichter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - wunderbares Aroma nach Sauerkirschen und etwas Mandel und Marzipan - passende, gut moussierende Carbonisierung - geschmacklich wirkt das ganze sehr natürlich, d.h. kein aufgesetzter künstlicher Kirschgeschmack - die Säure steht klar im Vordergrund, verbindet sich aber sehr angenehm mit einem leicht holzigen Kirschgeschmack - der Abgang betont diese Säure dann nochmals Fazit: Kann nicht ganz an das Boon Kriek Mariage Parfait heranreichen, aber immer noch ein sehr gutes Kirschlambic

FinnIckler (99) - GERMANY - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle from bierlinie in Berlin. Pours deep Red. Smells of Cherry, Great Cherry Taste with a Hint of Red grape. Heavy carbonation, but doesn’t interfere with the taste at all. Not too sweet, not too sour. Only the aftertaste is not perfect, a bit to rash in the throat. Such a great beer.
