COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Liefmans is a unique, refreshing blend of beers, ripened on real cherries in our cellars, blended with natural fruitjuices of strawberry, raspberry, cherry, billberry and elderberry. The result is a slightly Champenoise pearling, fruity, and agreably sweet drink, sparkling and refreshing.

Red coloured liquid and red head also. Head stays. Sweet fruit aroma. Taste is quite sweet. Artifical taste, reminds some cider coctails. Good to drink ice cold beer.

ForlornHope (337) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2016
Bottle at home. Deep red colour with a pink foam head. Aroma of cherry and other red fruits, like cough syrup. Taste is sweet. Flavours of sappy malt, lots more red fruit with a background of herbal woodiness which is quite pleasant. Lively in the glass but has a sticky finish. Definitely for those with a sweet tooth.

anstei (902) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 25, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of King_Alex_II. Like a mash of all red fruits you can imagine, very overdone. Carbonation kills all the rest. Ew.

Kauge (1271) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 18, 2016
Small bottle (as Fruitesse On The Rocks) from Alcostock in Tallinn (€ 1.89). BB 03.2017. Pours pinkish red, dark and somewhat hazy in the glass, with a pretty big, pink head - drops fast, laces. Looks like some pop. And smells like one, too. Like, really. Berry sweets, Hubba Bubba bubblegum, or rather Chewits... And you know. But as I’m really craving for something sweet right now, it’s not bad... Tastes as sweet, but luckily not too cloying or sticky. Some faint bitterness in the finish. Moderate carbonation, and not too light on the palate. Does come across as pretty artificial, and far from anything beery. Anyone remember the red Fanta, I think it was available some time in the 90s? - It’s a bit like that...
