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.

andregoncalves (1096) - Lisbon, - JUN 11, 2013
25cl bottle. Red, rose color with rose head. Taste is medium sweetness but balanced. Carbonation is high but fine. Aroma is cherry and red fruits. It’s a bit artificial, but it’s not that bad...

laiti (4948) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 19, 2014
25 cl bottle @ home as ”Liefmans Fruitesse”, BBE 03/2014
Aroma is sweet and candy-like with strawberries and cherry juice. Flavour is sweet and sticky with lollipop-like candy, cherries and some strawberries. An oversweet soda pop. Not the worst of this kind though.

Lubiere (9430) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
A burgundy red ale with a thin pinkish lacing white head. In aroma, loads of berries, cherries, pop like but not cloying. In mouth, a sweet fruity pop like beer with nice little acidic points. On tap at loose moose.

Maakun (321) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2014
UPDATED: APR 10, 2014 It was recommended on the bottle to pour this on ice, which I didn’t. Ruby with pink head. Lots of sweet red fruits, not much else. Maybe a touch of tartness. Medium bodied with nice sparkly carbonation. More alcoholic soda pop than beer, but quite enjoyable (I like good sodas).

Extremer Himbeer/Waldbeergeruch. Der auch im Geschmack. Leicht Süßstoff, aber "Biernormalrestsüß". Kaum Bittere, angenehmes Brett.

titvs (17) - PORTUGAL - APR 5, 2014
Review according to BJCP 2008 guidelines (20) - Leifmans Fruitesse. Aroma: sweet aroma of cherry and other red fruits with an aftertaste of raspberry. sweetness maybe due to the use of fruit concentrates. No malt of hop aromas present. Appearance: clear ruby red with some orange tint and pink head with fair retention. Taste: sweet flavour of cherries dominates. Palate: smooth medium-low body with medium carbonation levels. Body not so thin maybe because of the use of adjuncts. Overall: a very enjoyable fruit beer but the extra sweetness may give the impression of an artificial product.

Clear dark red color, thin tan head that disappeared instantly. Medium body, average carbonation. Strong cherry aroma. Tolerably sweet, it could use more sourness. OK fruit beer.
