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 into a lambic glass from bottle. Pink head, pink/red color in the glass. Aroma is candy sweet focused on the strawberry and cherry. The taste is similar, but this is very sweet with limited malt or sourness to balance. If you want something very sweet and candy-like from the bottle, this is a great choice.

Bottle. Sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Cherries and red berries all over the place. Very sweet. A decent bit of malt to balance it out.

marquisalex (167) - Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle (as Liefmans Fruitesse) poured into tulip glass. Same colour as wine, but with a thick, pillowy bubblegum pink head. Aromas are red berries (various) and bubblegum. Delicious, but not very beery. Taste is very sweet, a tiny bit of sour cherry. Almost syrupy body. Nice - I feel like it should lose points for not being much like a beer, but it’s so delicious.

Way too much sugar and sweet. I know its the holidays, but on the cloying side. Drinkable in small doses.

MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2015 One of my favorite desert beers of all time. Pours a dark red/pink color. Aroma is fruity, predominantly cherries. Delicious, not too sweet so feel free to have a few without feeling like you might contract diabetes. Can?t say enough about this beer. Best enjoyed over ice but not necessary and doesn?t retract from the beer at all if you don?t.
