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.

I drank this beer chilled and really enjoyed it. I haven’t had any of their beers since the trouble, but this reminded me of them, if in a subdued way. Lacking the sourness and the acidity, Fruitesse offered a soft, semi-sweet (barely sweet) all natural drinking experience. Not a hint of artificial flavours, this delicate beer is to be sipped and enjoyed, ideal for summer evenings by the tennis court! Bottle-conditioned I think...

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2016 Pours deep red with big pink head; aroma is sweet sugary, fruit candy, raspberry juice, no beer smell at all; taste is fruity, cherry, strawberry, medium to high lingering sweetness, some sourness; mouthfeel is thick sugary with fizzy carbonation, reminds me of softdrinks; not a bad drink but a bad beer

Bouteille 25 cl - couleur rouge foncé, mousse rose bonbon, odeur bonbon, fruité sucrée, goût sur la même longueur, on croit à du bonbon tellement c’est sucré, je suis pas fan

Bottle. Dark red with pink head. Aroma of cherries and strawberries, sweet and bitter. Taste is same as aroma, the ending is dry. Smager og dufter lidt af rød saftevand, dog noget bedre...

Pours a clear red on tap with fluffy pink head that leaves light lace. Aroma of huge sweet fruitiness and a hint of cough syrup booze. Taste follows, sweet and medicinal. Ehhh.

Bottle from saveure. Pours deep pink. Nose is sweet cherry, raspberry, blackcurrant. Palate is fruity, the sweetness is overshadowing the cherry. Finish is a bit sour. The sugar leaves a weird aftertaste at the teeth and mouth. Refreshing, but too artificially sweet.

Schlumpfhunter (154) - Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2016
Farbe: dickes dunkles rot Schaum: fein Nase: fruchtig, bisschen nach Kaugummi. Kirsche erdbeer himbeer. Nichts bieriges. Geschmack: sehr feinperlig, champagnerhaft, im Mund schon bierig im Sinn von sauer und bitter, hintenraus wieder bunte Früchte. Nichts fassiges oder mostiges wie ich das sonst kenne sondern nur frucht, lieblich. Bier würde ich das nicht nennen, als sonmergetränk abends draußen oder im Cafe aber auf jeden Fall.

Smallish bottle. Smells like mildly perfumy cherry cough medicine. Looks pretty, purplish maroon perhaps. Slightly warm with no ice cubes. initially it has a more realistic fruity flavor compared to those artificial pops. Goes down fairly easy considering how warm it is, must be around 60F. A good well balanced truly fruity brew that comes across rather civilized and friendly. Good overall beer experience. Liking this, not too sugary, but it is. I bet this stuff tastes great ice cold, heheh.

Blueshawk (392) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
- leuchtend rote Farbe mit geringer Schaumbildung - schönes säuerliche Beerenaroma, wobei die Kirsche etwas hervor- sticht - geschmacklich bleibt dieses säuerliche Kirscharoma, was ein witzig prickelndes Mundgefühl hervorruft - auch im Abgang verfällt das Ganze nie in süßliche Gefilde - schönes Sommergetränk und allemal besser als alle Alcopops oder sonstigen Biermisch/Mixgetränke auf dem Markt Fazit: Ganz nettes Erfrischungsgetränk

Smells very cherry, more like a gazeuse. Taste is fairly okay with a surprising dry finish. Little aftertaste.
