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."

It starts nicely tart then goes to a sweetness that fades fast to a dry long finish. The cherries taste very natural. This really is beer not lemonade like some in the style. Very nice!

maxwelldeux (3723) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours a reddish brown color with a smallish light brown head on there. Nose is sour and fruity, with berry elements coming through, and some cherry at the end. Taste is sour with a lot of cherry on there, and just seems like too much. Would prefer less cherry (but I detest cherry).

Bamsen78 (3244) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2014
Draught @ Duvelorium, Brugge. Pours slightly hazy rich ruby with small off-white head. Slightly dusty aroma with notes of cherries and yeast. Vinous flavour of cherries, with dusty and malty notes and bitter, hoppy touches. Sweetish and vinous aftertaste. Good.

MichaelAwesome (4347) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2014
Ehrlich gesagt frage ich mich schon, wie dieser pervers hohe Score hier moeglich ist. Denn dieses Piwo kann nur suess und irgendwelche Beeren. Von Nuancen, kleinen Merkmalen oder aromatischen Erguessen keine Spur. Suesser Einheitsbrei.

ElManana (276) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - OCT 4, 2014
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.

McTapps (4351) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle from Bierzwerg. The beer pours out in a hazy dirty brownish colour with steady low head and medium body. Aroma of mild vinegar and sugar. Taste of sweet cherries, light acid, leaves and barley. Sugary finish. Drinkable, yet nothing special and too sugary.
