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.

From a large bottle in a snifter. Cloudy ruby. Intense sweet fruit flavor and aroma. Cherry heavy. Not that much depth and could use more tartness. Average.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6729) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Sampled from a 750 ml corked green bottle this beer poured a dark red color with lots of little floaters and a large foamy pink head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet mixed berry jam with notes of blueberry, strawberry and elderberry. The flavor was sweet sugar and mixed berry jam with notes of strawberry, cherry and blueberry and a tartness underneath. Long sweet tart mixed berry jam finish. Moderately full bodied. Yummy!

ABT_S54 (352) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
33cl served in a Trappist glass. Pours a bright pink colour with a pink head. Too sweet by a mile - more like a child’s pop than a beer. By a country mile the worst beer I have ever tried. I cannot think of a redeeming feature.

BrettTaylor (738) - Radford, Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2013
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.

jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2013
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.
