3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Bottle (250ml)] As ’Liefmans Fruitesse on the Rocks’. Pours a deep ruby-amber with a large lasting frothy pink head. Aroma of sugary raspberries and cherries, just a touch tart, and that’s pretty much it. Cherry flavour along with some wheat or grain, sugar and raspberries. Average bodied. It’s not as bad as I feared, and it’s a small bottle so it’s fine I guess.

Sample at Hopfest 2015. Comes a clear pale red with a decent pink head. Aroma of fruit and berries. Taste is cherries, raspberries, and strawberries. If there is a next time I will try it over ice.

On the rocks. Cassis colour, pink foamy head. Nicely fruity nose and taste with red berries and cherries, slightly sour. Medium carbonation and body. Not a real beer...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
250 ml bottle. Pours a clear red with a small, short lived, pink head. Strong, sweet aroma of red berries with some acidity. Very sweet and artificial flavour of red berries with a dry, tart finish. Light body with a watery texture and fizzy carbonation. Tastes more like soda than beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
snifter filled from large bottle (original) -- revised in May 2015 with a 250 ml bottle [BB 2-2016].
Pours a nice clear light red with a medium but sudsy pink cap. Head has good retention.
Sweet fruity smell, with too much suggestion of medicine or artificially flavored candy. A bit too much sweetness. Tart-sweet flavor with strawberry and cherry leaves the aftertaste of a fruity dessert.
This did not compare favorably with the Lindemann’s Framboise I had just before trying the Liefmans. The former had a markedly more powerful aroma and flavor and a better mouthfeel. Still, this has no major flaws and is a serviceable substitute for a better lambic, particularly as a dessert brew.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle, as Liefmans ’On The Rocks’. Poured on the rocks, as the label instructed me to do. Seemed to water the flavours down a bit. Big sugary sweet smoothie aroma. Taste is soft cherry and red berry fruits. Light and harmless.
