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.

ruby mahogany with a dense pink head. wonderful soft full body with medium-high carbonation. served chilled rather than cold, and poured a bit roughly, the mouthfeel is full and round and perfect.

aroma: a bouquet of sweet ripe berries and whole cherries over a dark bready malt background with notes of chocolate and caramel. there is a bit of basement yeast character, but no sour.

taste: exactly the same as aroma.

i would like some sourness in there, but it is quite pleasant as it is, and sufficiently complex. it says fruity and sweet on the label, so i find it very difficult to find any flaw in this, it just needs to be treated and served appropriately for what it is. it would be a great treat for some non beer-fans i know, and fun for pairing or even blending. maybe too sweet by itself but excellent with some mildly tangy soft cow/sheep/goat cheeses.

Almost like bubble gum for adults, this is a deliciously perfumed fruity beer. Feels sparkly and light, like a breezy warm late summers evening. Good red colour.

I loved this beer. Bottle shared with northropfrye at Beer Bros. in Regina. A sweet and very fruity beer, true to its name. Excellent dessert beer.

A bit thinner and more light-fruited than e.g. Lindemans, this is nonetheless an absolutely fantastic beer

Draft as Liefman’s Fruitesse @ Birch Bar Norfolk VA: Aroma is a delightful mix of Skittles and Jolly Ranchers, cherry, lime, raspberry, and orange are discernible. Crystal clear ruby colored. Flavor is of a bag of sweet tarts, mainly raspberry and strawberry. Kind of a girly beer, but delicious. Fruity and complex, I could literally drink this all day.

Strong fruit aroma with a red appearance. The blends of fruit are very smooth, tasting like a mixed fruit cobbler. The berry flavors are bold and refreshing.

Has a bright fruit aroma as you wolud expect from this style. Nice deep red color. Flavors are strawberry more so than raspberry, not what I would have expected from the aromas. Als it finishes clean without as much sweetness as the aroma would suggest.
