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."

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!

thepeter (278) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2010
Poured a deep cherry red with some brown tint to it. Head left quickly and not really much lacing left on glass. Smelled of Cherry, wood and a bit like a dirt floor basement where I used to live. Taste hits you with a quick tart flavor at first but the majority of it is ripe cherry and a bit of that woodiness. Effervescent but not overly, clean aftertaste and easy to drink quite a bit.

This beer pours with a nice medium tan/red head and it has a very dark red, dark cherry color. It smells of cherries and sour ale. The taste has notes of sour cherry with vinegar. There is a nice sweetness that cuts through at the end of the sourness and makes this beer very palatable. Overall very surprised at this beer as my girlfriend picked it out at the store and wanted to try it. She does not like beer at all and loved this one. Good beer B+......

It pours ruby with slight brownish tints; the head is salmon coloured and foamy. The aroma has notes of: sour cherries, barnyard funk, and sweet grains. The taste is medium-high sweet with a medium light sour; there are notes of: vanilla, sour cherries, lemon-juice, and toffee. The palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, slightly sticky, and has a medium finish. Overall, very tasty - not complex.

Unexpected... this beer was bitter and tart. Maybe I need to get back into Lambics hardcore again before dogging this one out, but it was a letdown for me.

Pours hazelnut brown with reddish color. Aroma is cherries, vinegar. Taste is very siruppy, lots of sugar, cherries like candies. Good, but not as advertised imo. Too sweet.

Big, lovely cherry & yeast smell (as you'd expect). Sweet tasting start till your draw air across your tongue then you get slapped on the mouth by equally big tartness. Like a light, effervescent cherry wine - this is a delightful beverage. Rated by BrewTom
