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…

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Bottle Poured a dark clear plum color with a large frothy pink head that lasted a little while but left some really nice retention floating on top which allowed for some excellent lacing. The aroma was overwhelming with the scent of cherries and a definite sour or tart odor. It tasted moderatley sweet with a strong cherry flavor in the beginning then became a bit tart with a nice sour finish. Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a very fizzy carbonation. Overall the flavor was very interesting with sour and sweet melding so nice, giving way to a nice cherry ending.

330ml bottle from M&S. Small pink head, nice lacing. Clear dark reddish brown body. Nose is sour cherries, acidic notes. Flavour is more sour cherry, bready yeast, really sweet through the middle before a tart finish. Light carbonation, soft creamy mouthfeel. Really good.

Oscbert (1214) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 23, 2016
Strong aroma of dried cherry and sweet cranberry. Wheat Pours a brownish red with lasting small off white head Strong sweet dried cherry flavor with bready malt. Medium bodied with medium co2, lingering cherry finish Enjoyable beer just overpowered by cherry. Not many nuances for me to make it interesting enough to buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Antonio369 (107) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2016
33cl bottle, served in snifter glass. Poured a deep dark burgundy red with an one finger off white head. Delicious aromas of black cherries, tart, vanilla, caramel. Taste: Oh that is so fingerlickin’ good...initially there is sweetness from the cherries, vanilla, caramel, and then the tart kicks in with all the acidic, dry bitterness. Mouthfeel is very dry. Light to Medium body with a long bitter tart finish. What a delicious and refreshing kriek this is! Top class!

Mesjasz (755) - Lodz, POLAND - APR 28, 2016
Butelka. Aromat wiśniowy, ale bardziej w stylu soku niż poważnego piwa degustacji. Jest też lekka nutka piwniczna. Smak stosunkowo słodki, lekko kwaśny, bardzo wiśniowy. Całkiem dobry soczek.
