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.

Emeister84 (1560) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Smells like mixed berries and subtle beer, like a glorified Bud Light Raz-ber-rita. Slightly hazy red with a fairly lasting white head. Fruity, very fruity, with faint funky notes. Light-medium bodied.

jamaty (1248) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
Aspecto de zumo de frutas, roja, con espuma rosa fuerte, abundante. Aroma de cereza, y sabor superfrutal y dulce, muy dulce. Todo un jarabe de cereza, fresa y otras frutas rojas que incorpora. No es que sea desagradable ni que esté malo... prefiero la cerveza

blankboy (6583) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2015
[Bottle (250ml)] As ’Liefmans Fruitesse on the Rocks’. Pours a deep ruby-amber with a large lasting frothy pink head. Aroma of sugary raspberries and cherries, just a touch tart, and that’s pretty much it. Cherry flavour along with some wheat or grain, sugar and raspberries. Average bodied. It’s not as bad as I feared, and it’s a small bottle so it’s fine I guess.

RobertDale (4266) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Sample at Hopfest 2015. Comes a clear pale red with a decent pink head. Aroma of fruit and berries. Taste is cherries, raspberries, and strawberries. If there is a next time I will try it over ice.

fkoolen (586) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2015
On the rocks. Cassis colour, pink foamy head. Nicely fruity nose and taste with red berries and cherries, slightly sour. Medium carbonation and body. Not a real beer...

cmacklin (422) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 23, 2015
250 ml bottle. Pours a clear red with a small, short lived, pink head. Strong, sweet aroma of red berries with some acidity. Very sweet and artificial flavour of red berries with a dry, tart finish. Light body with a watery texture and fizzy carbonation. Tastes more like soda than beer.

chinchill (3012) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 21, 2015
snifter filled from large bottle (original) -- revised in May 2015 with a 250 ml bottle [BB 2-2016]. Pours a nice clear light red with a medium but sudsy pink cap. Head has good retention. Sweet fruity smell, with too much suggestion of medicine or artificially flavored candy. A bit too much sweetness. Tart-sweet flavor with strawberry and cherry leaves the aftertaste of a fruity dessert. This did not compare favorably with the Lindemann’s Framboise I had just before trying the Liefmans. The former had a markedly more powerful aroma and flavor and a better mouthfeel. Still, this has no major flaws and is a serviceable substitute for a better lambic, particularly as a dessert brew.

meireteixeira (160) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 20, 2015
Cor de cereja, espuma boa e de média persistência. Vivaz. Aroma adocicado de frutas. Paladar de frutas vermelhas e seco. Retrogosto de leve amargor.
