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.

Poured a thin to medium density hazy on top purple/pink with more clarity toward the bottom revealing lots of floating sediment. Aroma is all fruit, sugary sweet with lots if berry notes, sour cherry, black berry, medicinal cough syrup some old wet oak. Nice bubbly carbonation wih a lighter body and a sugary finish. Flavor is overly sugary with some cheap berry notes, cough medicine drops, touch of old pie. Very sweet overall and seems to be enhanced by sugar.

RumRunner101 (803) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 29, 2012
Pours light red/pink with a frothy white head. Aroma is a blend of fruity sweetness. Light bodied, very easy drinking and effervescent. No real bear taste, just fruit. Too sweet.

tricyclist (801) - Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Flute pour of hazed pinkish red with a fluffed white head. It literally smells exactly what I would imagine the color pink to smell like. Along with strawberry and raspberry. Flavor is tart with fruity notes, strawberry and raspberry. Lighter medium body. not horrible, but Iím good with one.

Had this bottle sat in the fridge for ages and finally gave it a go tonight - lovely punch in the nose with strawberry jam there and some sickly (but nice) forest fruits in there. A bit sweet, but altogether a pleasant drink. Far nicer than that dreadful FrŁli.

thirstyrabbit (1125) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 17, 2012
25 cl bottle. Ruby red body, small white head. Aroma has all kinds of berries, mostly cherry and strawberry. Sweet fruity taste with cherry and strawberry. Finish offers some light sourness. Not too complex but more importantly itís very refreshing. I donít mind the sweetness at all.

beerbastard (709) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Enjoyed this with my friends, Reg, Sam, and Chris. Not use to this style. Bright Pink with Pink head. Bold fruit nose of strawberries. Cotton candy with vanilla flavors with strawberry, and raspberry. Bubbly. Canít say I would want this beer again. But it was not unpleasant.

FatPhil (9463) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 14, 2012
330ml bottle (Sinilind, Tallinn) - as Fruitesse
total fruit explosion. In your face raspberry, cherry, and strawberry. Quite OTT, but also quite delicious. Sweet slick palate, but some carbonation crispens it up nicely. Taste not quite so OTT, a very fruity beer, sweet too, but surprisingly well balanced, considering. Beer isnít so prominant, but isnít so important in a beer like this. Hedonistically, I enjoyed it , and itís well crafted, but it too sweet to be something Iíd chose to drink often. Could be a good way of weaning cider cows off the crappy baltic ciders.

Aroma has lots of berries: cherry, raspberry, strawberry, sour sweetness. Beautiful bright red color, thin pink head. Light and aromatic, fresh and crisp, fizzy carbonation, lots of sour sweetness. Liked.
