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.

Pours a raspberry red color from the bottle. Smells of sweet fruity flavors, mostly raspberry and black cherry. Very fruity flavor, starts out very sweet and ends with a bit of a sour note. Overall a bit of an artificial flavor but may be enjoyable especially for those who dont enjoy a regular beer.

Rhombic (78) - SPAIN - JAN 31, 2016
Bottle. Pours red with frothy diminishing head. Appearance of squash. Sickly aroma of cherries, very artificial and extremely overpowering. Tastes of more cherry. Squash. Not a beer, Palate of soft drink. I’ll refrain myself from reviewing -or trying, for that matter- any other so-called fruit beers.

beer-yum (1040) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 17, 2016
Sweet cherry berry fruit aroma in a crimson rose pour. Sweet cherry berry flavour to match. Not really my thing (way prefer the ’sour’ varieties) but suspect it’d be enjoyed by anyone looking for a sweet cherry beer.

Eu não gosto muito de fruit beer, mas ela é bem interessante. Aroma intenso, das cinco frutas aparece mais a cereja e a framboesa. É mais ácida do que doce e refrescante. Parece um refrigerante azedinho. Para os amantes do estilo é uma ótima cerveja. On the Rocks fica bem interessante

Fresh, sweet and enjoyable, but a bit too fruity for my taste. I like cherry beers when they are proper krieks better than this one.

Bottle. Pours red with pink head.Aroma is sweet, raspberries, malty, sourish, berries. Taste is sweet with some sour notes, berries, cherry, sugar. Medium body. Sweet finish. Good if you want something sweet and made with berries.

VT (2233) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2015
250 ml bottle. Pours a clear red with a short lived pinkish head. Aroma is raspberry juice, cherry juice. Flavor is raspberry and cherry juices. Finish is residual sugar, raspberry, blueberry and cherry juices. Very, very light tartness. Mostly residual sugars. Light to medium body, soft mouthfeel and average carbonation. Not bad per se, but more like a fruit juice than a beer, really.

nathanvc (115) - Brugge, BELGIUM - DEC 29, 2015
Pours dark red/amber with a fluffy pink head that lasts. The aroma has berries, cherries and candy. It tastes heavy sweet with a light hint of sourness. Nice soft carbonation and sticky in texture. Very refreshing, but I’ll have it more as a lemonade than as a beer. Good try though.

SinH4 (1590) - Garching, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2015
Dark purple color with pink head. Aroma is sweet fruits, all sorts of berries. Taste is sweet artificial berries, no wild fermentation detectable really. Too sweet.
