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.

JorgeLee (1430) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2013
Bottle at Quilon, served with dessert. Bright pink with a big pink tinged head. Really quite sweet, not much beer flavour in here, vague taste of cherries and berries, intense sweetness. Not really my thing as a beer, guess it’s ok if you like super sweet fruit drinks.

MRMedellin (215) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - OCT 4, 2013
This is one of the bests fruit beers I have ever tried. Since the begin the aroma is sweet, revealing notes of cherries and strawberry, at this point the malt isn’t evident. In glass it’s a dark red beer with a pink foam head. It tastes sweet an sour, and at this moment the malt can be felt, but having a good balance with the rest of the components of the beer. Maybe is not the beer for all days but I would try it again any other day.

BrewBoxer (2450) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours a ruby red color with a huge pink foam head. Not as sweet over ice as I tried both way. Better colder as it kills the overt sweet artificial tadte ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GSAP (578) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2013
Niet heel verkeerd, verfijnde kersen aroma en smaak met links en rechts andere zoetigheden. Verfrissend, maar niet on the rocks ...

Bottle spluit at JF’s, thanks Jim, as Liefmans Fruitesse 23/08/13. Clear cherry red with a thin crimson head. Nose is raspberry jam, sugars, a little artificial on the fruit front. Taste is sweet, berry fruits, artificial fruits of the forest, sugars, raspeberry cordial. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet execution. A palate cleanser and no more!
