COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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…

The flavour of this gorgeous beer can be described as sweet and fruity, with a certain sour touch. The aftertaste is rather complex and rich. First this Cuvee Brut beer matures for about 1 year. Then Old Brown beer and Goudenband beer is added to create this lovely brew. This Liefmans Cuvee Brut is brewed once a year. In July Liefmans ads fresh cherries to this wonderful brew. Then the beer starts maturing again. This time for about 18 months up to 3 years.

Dark brown/red color with good big white head.Cherry, rasberry and citrus aroma. Very rich aroma.A little bit bitter, suprisingly not so sweet as expected. Cherry taste and bitter aftertaste. Very good drinkable beer!

guil0000 (361) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 28, 2016
Pours a dark red/brown color with a creamy beige head. Nose of dark fruit, cherry, raspberry, tartness. Sweet taste, not overly sweet thought. You get a bit of tartness near the end. Very well balanced. Excellent.

MPA (922) - Amager (form. Nřrrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - JUL 28, 2016
Bottle. Brown with a reddish touch and a huge beige head. Heavy aroma of cherries along with a little citrus/lime, marzipan and some wooden elements. Very sweet cherry flavour at first with a medium tart finish. Also traces of metal at the end. Very nice, but not the best kriek I’ve had.

rafax (78) - POLAND - JUL 22, 2016
Bottle. Brown/red color with small, pinkish, long lasting head and surprisingly good lacing. Aromas of cherry, wine some acidic notes, fresh and pleasant. Taste is first little bit sweet, then light acidic with sour finish. Light to medium body, very fresh, very drinkable, very dangerous :)

Fules (670) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 16, 2016
Szép nagy, hosszú, rózsaszínű hab. Barnába hajló rubin szín. Nagyon finom illata van, meggyes, fanyar, fűszeres. Nagyon fincsi meggyes, savanykás, fanyar, fűszeres, animális íz. Testes sör. Utóízét a savanykás meggy íz uralja, némi animális fűszerességgel.

Zilverenmaan (18) - Schoten, BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2016
Dit kersenrode bier geurt heerlijk naar krieken, kriekensmaak zelf naar mijn gevoel iets subtieler, verder gelukkig eerder zuur dan zoet. Is het nu al op?

Swaroga (2024) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 9, 2016
Sample. Red/brown with medium, beige head. Aroma is straight forward but intensive with noted of cherry, tart and some little spice. Medium strong carbonation with creamy texture. Taste is narrow and more or less Cherry/Tart/Sugar/Clove. Still delicious for cooking but a bit too sweet to quench the thirst.

330ml Flasche, blended 2015. dunkelrotes Bier mit schönem altrosa farbenen Schaum. Intensives Kirsch Aroma mit einem Hauch Hefe und Mandel. Kräftiger vollmundiger Kirsch Geschmack. Ausgewogene Säure. Langer Abgang. Ein Großartiges Kriek!
