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.

boxofrane (2294) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours deep ruby with a small reddish head that dissipates quickly. The aroma has a mix of strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. The taste is syrupy sweet.

UXO (522) - CANADA - FEB 21, 2015
Pours clear red with a fat two fingers of frothy pink head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, moderate lacing. (3/5) Nose is cherries and raspberries, along with other mixed berry sweetness. (6/10) Taste is moderately strong sweet, mild tart. (7/10) Light body, lively carbonation, off-dry and mildly tart finish. (3/5) A mildly alcoholic cherry lemonade. On ice. Despite it being quite sweet, it isnít cloying or overwhelming, and the cherry doesnít taste artificial. Kinda weird to pour it over ice, but thatís what the bottle said to do, and itís not completely inappropriate for whatís basically lemonade. (14/20)

Tognetta (81) - Campinas, BRAZIL - FEB 18, 2015
Aroma intenso de vinho, groselha, framboesa. Espuma rala e pouco duradoura. Paladar bastante refrescante e carbonado. Aftertaste tendendo para o citrico, perdendo aos poucos o adocicado t„o intenso do inŪcio. Uma boa fruitbeer!

gyllenbock (5228) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle, thanks SirLimpsalot. (labeled as Fruitesse On The Rocks) Clear reddish with a pink head. Really sweet with raspberries, some cherries and sugar. The body was light and with no bitterness. Quite tasty as a lemonade, why not with some ice?

TaxiDriver (1473) - Stadland, GERMANY - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle. A very fruity and sweet aroma, also a little hidden sourness. The small white fizzy head disappears fast, the body is dark red. A very sweet taste, strong fruity taste of cherries, in between a little bit sour, the finish is sweet again. The body is light, very fizzy with a lot of carbonation.

Cheiro de frutas vermelhas bem acentuado, assim como o gosto. O gosto é bom, parece um suco. Não sou muito fã desse estilo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bartlebier (2210) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2015
Half of 4x25cl bottles, merci ma... Red berry grenadine on the rocks, to be served on even more ice. Nose of unadulterated molten HariboKirschen and decongealed raspberry mousse with strawberry sirup, including all pectines and ascorbine acids, the slightest hint of beer to be traced not sooner than retronasally, upon burping up all that lipsmackingly sticky cherry candy. A mousse, a grenadine, an ice cream...just not a beer - I like Garyís remark that the raspberry is in 3D here. A Belgian brewing & mixing abomination so confident and endemic to the culture you just better learn to accept it is going to be there waiting for you, at some point in your most regressive drinking state. Still better and fuller quality of fruit than most lemonade Radlers, though (including Stiegl)- NOTE: Canít this just be entered as "Liefmans Fruitesse" (On the Rocks)?

imdownthepub (10870) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2015
Bottled, 330ml from S.H Jones in Banbury as Liefmans Fruitesse. Pink amber with pink head. There is a pleasant fruity nose on opening with just an inkling of the trials to follow. On drinking this is really sweet, syrupy sweet with artificial raspberry, strawberry notes, bubblegum, fruit cordial. Sorry but I didnít like it.
