COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale brewed with cherries with natural flavor added. Contains barley malt. Wrap label: "Liefmans Cuvée - Brut is brewed only once a year, in July. After brewing freshly harvested and carefully selected cherries are blended in and the beer is cellared at the brewery. After a slow maturation of 18 months to 3 years different vintages are carefully tasted and blended to create the final result: a complex deep-red ale with refreshing balanced tart-sweet taste, strong cherry notes and sparkling carbonation."

0.75 l bottle from airport shop in Brussels. Very deep and dark red colour with pink head. At first you will taste cherries but after you have swallowed your throat will feel something sour. Yes, the Flemish sour ale comes through the sweetness. To call this cuvee sweet and sour would describe the taste better than just plain brut. You won’t have these kind of flavours in sparkling wines.

aroma and flavour of vinegar and ripe sweet cherries. flavour was too tart for me, but the missus loves it. i thought it a bit thin in the mouth as well. looks inviting with deep cheery red and minimal head.

Nice cherry sweet aroma. Deep orange red color. Fresh sweet fruit up front. Cicely balanced with dry sourness that is very palatable. Dry tart finish that is refreshing.

Alpha10 (418) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
2014/03/25 - Pours a dark red-mahogany colour with a small, fizzy, light pink head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is cherries, wood, sweet grains and mild funk. Taste is rather sweet moderately sour. Notes of sour cherries, vanilla, lemon, tobacco, toffee and very mild funk. Mouthfeel is medium and sticky with high, crisp carbonation and a sweet, drying finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle courtesy of goldtwins. Pours reddish-brown. Aroma of sweet cherries. Taste is very sweet, though not cloying here. A bit syrupy on the palate and some tartness arrives in the finish.

Tap, The Wenlock: With my London guide Duff. Sour, alcohol soaked cherries dominate the aroma. Very sweet cherry flavours are balanced nicely by a quenching sourness. It’s really alla bout the cherries though.

This is the first fruit beer i’ve tried....always thought they were a bit ’ girlie ’ BOY was i missin out. Huge burst of cherries when you pop the cork! Incredibley dark burgundy appearance,with a thin pale pink head.An initial creamy fruity taste that quickly changes to sour.It has a nice malty finish and it smells & tastes of Cherry Drops!

Cherry ruby red, clean and crisp. Pinkish short-lived head. High aromas of cherry, kirsch and yeast. Dry, pungent and sheer sour. Subtle persistence. Very nice in its style.
