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.

Tak jak na styl przystało, aromat winny wiśniowy, w smaku czuć wiśnie i wyraźną gorycz, prawdopodobnie pochodzącą od pestek wiśni.

Pours a dark purple brown body with a medium creamy head. Aroma of cherry candy. Nice taste of cherries.

The classic Liefmans Kriekbier in its new, refreshed appearance, but basically still the same beer Liefmans has been making for a long time. Stable, dirty pinkish, moussy head, staying closed for a long time; colour a deep burgundy, hazy. Rich, complex and abundantly fruity aroma of clearly fresh cherries with a hint of cherry stones, draped nicely over the basic beer, which otherwise reveals dried banana, passion fruit, vanilla, fruit yoghurt, walnuts, orange zest, tea leaves, old madera and apple. The first sip overthrows you with a truckload of fresh cherries, with lots of lively fruit acidity, blending into a more sedate lactic acidity of sour cream and yoghurt from the basic beer (or should I say beers, as this is a blend of different ages), which then comes to full glory offering its natural fruitiness of passion fruit and apple, medium carbonation, woody touches and an ’old’, port- or madera-like generosity in the finish, vinous with a slight bitterness that could perhaps come from the cherry stones. Wonderfully complex as it once was, thank the Duvel for saving this from oblivion. Though still sweetened, like it was before Moortgat took over, it does not become too sugary and the sourishness makes for a dry, satisfying, thirst-quenching end. Still one of Belgium’s great fruit beers.

Mycket körsbär i aromen, lite godis aktig. Bra balans i smaken och kroppen. Mycket körsbär.

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.

Bottle at home. Pours red brown with a white head. Aroma of sour cherries and sweetness. Taste is very sweet with sour cherries. Nice, bit too sweet maybe.

Fat. Lilaröd öl med lättare rosa skum. Doft och smak av körsbär och andra bär. Lätt jästighet. Lätt syrlighet och en trevlig fruktsötma.
