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.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2013 Bomber poured into small snifter glass. Clear ruby color with the thinnest of white heads. Tart cherry aroma with other tart fruits. Strong cherry flavor dominates, very sweet and carbonated. Thin body. Alright, not really my thing.

250 mL bottle. Says on the bottle to serve "on the rocks." Maybe next time. Bright red, with a small pink head. smells candy-fruity. Tastes sweet - I can pick out the cherries and raspberries. Fruity and sweet. Not quite candy or fake. But sweet. Too sweet.

Tap at BrewDog Roppongi, Tokyo. 3.8 %. Deep red color, small pinky head. Fruity, bit tart kriek aroma. Light-bodied. Very fruity, quite sweet but with tart kick. Enjoyable in its style.

Holmen2 (682) - NORWAY - JUL 12, 2014
Bright red. Pink head. Totally artificial and unfresh aroma of raspberry bonbon and diet raspberry squash. Artificial sweetness and equally artificial raspberry bonbon in taste. Unfresh mouthfeel. This is alcopops and neither kriek nor beer. Unfresh aftertaste that lingers on.

caesar (4946) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2014
Bottled from Mitra Bunnik as Liefmans Fruitesse, large sample, served in a TeKu. Clear ruby color, medium frothy pink head. Aroma of huge sweet candy cherry, haribo in a glass, super sugary and super fruity. Taste is not as sweet as I expected, but still pretty sweet, , slight sour even, quite fruity. After a few sips Im getting used to the sweetness and enjoying the fruity notes more, but it still is liquid candy.

Nose is cherries with some citrus, smells great. Taste is very sweet like lemonade, very low alcohol which makes it amazingly easy to drink.

Bottle. Red, purple with a pink foam. Aromas are dark cherries with some citrus. Some light parma violet floral character. Flavours are cherry drop sweets with some raspberry tartness. Sweet with some lemon acidity and a light woody character. Has quite a short finish.
