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.

Clear cherry red beer. Light frothy pink head. Cherry fruit nose. Slightly dry palate. Fruit punch with a light touch of sourness. Cherry leads but there is strawberry and raspberry too. Dry finish with a bit of carbonated zing. Not bad, a little more sourness would have been better but this is a serviceable fruit beer.

Clear pink with a pinkish-white head that fades to a resilient ring, but doesn’t lace. Aroma of cherry, strawberry, raspberry, and I’m sure billberry and elderberry too, but I’m unfamiliar with those aromas, and cream. It smells like starburst candy and gummy worms. The taste is sweet, but fortunately not as sweet as I’d expected, with a light sourness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Really nice for a fruit beer; it’s not syrupy, too phony tasting, or too sweet.

A clear, bright red body with a small, fizzy but very long-lived pink head that leaves good amounts of lacing. The ridiculously sweet fruity aroma is quite strong and actually rather tempting, I find cherry, raspberry, strawberry and sweet candy. It smells pretty much like the Norwegian wine gummy pastilles called Skogsbćr. The taste is quite sweet, but there is also a light acidity that prevents the whole thing from getting to cloyingly sweet. Sugary syrupy flavours of cherry and cherry kernels drown most of the other fruity notes. But still it tastes really good! All the sugar creates a decent body, with a syrupy texture and soft carbonation, and somehow there is a very light dry finish in this sea of sugar. Believe it or not, I really enjoyed this one, although I didn’t crave for more when I had emptied the tiny 0.25 bottle. In addition to 15% fruits, both sugar and sweetener have been added, so maybe it would have been even better if the brewers had gone a bit more easy on the sweet stuff?
[25 cl bottle, enjoyed 2.5 years before BB date, from Jacobs pĺ Holtet, Oslo]

Bottle. Red with a pink head. Sweet chery fruit flavour and aroma. Not the classiest beer but I’ve got a soft spot for sweet cherry beers.

Clear red color with quickly dissapearing foam head. Aroma is sweet fruits, so does the taste. We drank this as a desert after nice meal. It’s good for that. (Utrecht 201203)

Bottles from Rehills in Jesmond, Newcastle and Asda. A bright red beer with a thin pink head. It has a tart and sweet strawberry and cherry flavour, rich red fruitiness and a dry cheesecake base flavoured finish.

Gerbeer (2006) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2012
250 ml bottle. Pours a dark red with very light white head. Aromas of strawberries, raspberries, and red licorice. Very sweet sugary start with a little sour notes to finish. Artificial mixed red fruit flavors. Bubbly. Excellent palate cleanser between two good beers. Seriously, a good sipping companion with fruit and sugary pastries.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Clear pinkish red with a thin pink head that fades into oblivion. Aroma of syrup, raspberry, strawberry and cherry. Thin bodied and over-carbonated mish-mash tastes of cherry, raspberry and artificial sweetener. A touch tart with a bad artificial sweetener aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours ruby red with a thin pink fuzz which fades in seconds. Nose is superfruity - strawberries wham! Cherries! Bilberries! Raspberries! In the mouth, there's a decent maltiness but the fruit loses its way a little. Picking them out still, but they are more tucked away and fighting each other a bit. Could do with concentrating one single fruit and doing it well rather than this mishmash.

Erasmus_ro (1488) - Alabama, USA - MAY 17, 2012
250ml bottle. Pours a deep, bright red with a lightly reddish, medium head. Aroma is sweet with cherry, raspberry lemonade, cherry candy, slight strawberry. Taste is also sweet, though a bit sour as well. Cherry and cherry candy are the strongest flavors, though you can find raspberry lemonade as well as some sour apple skin. Palate is light, somewhat carbonated. A pretty nice dessert beer, though could use a little less sugar and a little more sour flavor.
