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…

yespr (40482) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2007
25 cL bottle. Pours dark brown and with a reddish hue, completely diminished off-white head. Sulphorish dry aroma of cherries and with a solid caramel note too. Flavour starts acidic and leads into a sweet caramel malt heavy flavour. Ends sweet and acidic at once. Nice.

Ungstrup (34376) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2003
The aroma is dominated by cherries with a little sharpness and good portion of sweetness. The color is deep red but it has no head. The flavor is rather sweet with a strong cherry presence and a slight sourness. It ends on a dry cherry note. A good beer - but not the best Kriek I've had.

oh6gdx (25392) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2006
Bottled. Pitch rubyred and darkmurkish brown colour, small beigeish brown head. Aroma is cherries and dark fruits. Flavour is cherry, some alcohol and dry fruits. Also some sourness in it, but the cherry is sweet enough to not make it too sour. Long sweetish aftertaste after a rather dry and sour feeling. Excellently balanced brew. Palate is slightly sticky, but still "a bit watery".

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 (Bottle 37,5 cl) 1992 vintage at 6,5 % ABV. Dark reddish brown, pinkish head. Sweet and sour, but more the latter and a rather unusual hoppiness. Brewed with whole cherries and not just extract. Loads of sediment - cherry pits...? 040993

Almost clear dark cherry red beer. Decent and vibrantly pink head. Palate is light, mildly dry and has good fine carbonation. Rich sweet and sour cherry. Maraschino cherry - zippy. Seltzer. Light finish. Cherry zip lingers on. A little one note but that note is a great one.
