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.

larsniclas (6621) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2016
Draught at Öltappen Motala Red with no head. Very sweet aroma with raspberries and cherries. Not as sweet flavour but with same flavours as in the aroma. Quite refreshing!

LLaurin (277) - Motala, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2016
This impressive on the rocks beer is nicely red and almost no head. Nose is fruity with almost bubbelgum notes. Man various fruits are present in nose and taste. Palate is rather short but keeps up the fruity notes. Very refreshing.

Echon (328) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2016
Dark red. Intense sweet and tart berry aroma. Rich berry flavour, and a moderately sweet and sour taste, with no bitterness. Dry finish with some unpleasant artificial sweetnener. Medium body. Overall, a good fruit beer. I love the colour and the aroma, but the taste is not that full, and the artificial sweetener is just bad.

KoNrRiI (1154) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2016

0.33 bottle.
A clear, crimson color with an incredibly pink, medium, fluffy head. Aroma of cherry juice and nothing else - despite this simplicity it isn’t bad. Taste is as expected suffused with cherry; it is mostly sour with delicate sweet notes and a tad of candy. A medium body, an oily texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is long, once again cherry dominates everything. Overall the beer is not bad for a fruit brew, incredibly sweet and sour though - perhaps it would be better served with ice like advised by the producer.

edsspoon (855) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
Bright blackcurrant red with a flight pink head that quickly fades to a ring. Light lacing. Aroma of strawberry blackcurrant and raspberry with a hint of yeast and straw. Taste is light sourness with lots of syrupy strawberry flavors and blackcurrant. Medium body medium carbonation, very sweet and cloyingly syrupy mouthfeel. Great beer for people who don’t like beer probably!

Das ist eine Limonade mit Bier. Da kaufe ich mir lieber ein Radler/Alster. Schmeckt sehr stark nach Sirup.
