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."

Draft at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens. Poured a vibrant red color with a small pink, foamy head. Aroma was a blast of cherries, some tartness. Cherry skins, light tart, but not really sour character comes through. Lots of sweetness in this one.

From Bertaux Frères. Oud Bruin à la cerise Comme devrait se boire toute Kriek fort maltée aux saveurs caramélisées avec des arômes boisés épicée rehaussé d’un gout de fruit prononcé. En bouche, je goute une attaque bien acide sans saveur vinaigrée et toute de suite contre balancée par la belle rondeur du jus de fruit. Ensuite arrivent des arômes caramélisé à la finale acre de barrique. Le houblonnage à la fin est moyennement discret. Je note un bel équilibre entre la maltage, le fruit et l’acidité qui ne disparait pas sous la douceur mais offre une belle tenue en bouche sans lourdeur. Assez savoureux

Saeglopur (1112) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - AUG 11, 2015
375 ml bottle from Merkus Hoher Markt, Vienna.
Dark red body, with a small, frothy, light beige, slightly pink head.
Aroma of sweet cherries, oak, overripe and dried fruits, sweet-sour berries, some leather.
Taste follows this, with a bit more fruity sourness.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes dry, sweet-sour, fruity, wooden, a bit leathery.

Nice one. Pretty straight, with dominant cherries and not so much sourness. Not among my favourite beers of this style though, because it isn’t too complex or diverse, but enjoyable nonetheless.
