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.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, - MAR 11, 2012
25cl bottle. Couleur acajou/rubis, col épais rosâtre. Arôme de cerise fermentée ressortant bien en bouquet et couvre le tout. En bouche, malheureusement, cette bière à quatre fruits rouges qui à l’origine auraient pu développer un produit excellent tout en sachant que l’on a ici des fruits allant du terreux-fraise à l’aigre de la framboise en passant par la cerise, le tout se retrouve dans une bière gâchée par les édulcorants laissant un palais sucré collant aux lèvres et trop sucré. On y note bien la cerise utilisée comme base, avec en retrait la framboise et ce profil léger aigre de canneberge.

Bright red. Pink head. Totally artificial and unfresh aroma of raspberry bonbon and diet raspberry squash. Artificial sweetness and equally artificial raspberry bonbon in taste. Unfresh mouthfeel. This is alcopops and neither kriek nor beer. Unfresh aftertaste that lingers on.

caesar (4893) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2014
Bottled from Mitra Bunnik as Liefmans Fruitesse, large sample, served in a TeKu. Clear ruby color, medium frothy pink head. Aroma of huge sweet candy cherry, haribo in a glass, super sugary and super fruity. Taste is not as sweet as I expected, but still pretty sweet, , slight sour even, quite fruity. After a few sips Im getting used to the sweetness and enjoying the fruity notes more, but it still is liquid candy.

Nose is cherries with some citrus, smells great. Taste is very sweet like lemonade, very low alcohol which makes it amazingly easy to drink.

Lele (84) - ITALY - JUN 22, 2014
Particolarissima birra, ottenuta dalla maturazione per 18 mesi in botte insieme a ciliegie fresche, per poi venir miscelata insieme a succhi di fragola, lamponi, ciliegie, mirtilli e bacche di sambuco. Sicuramente molto diversa dalla classica birra. Va servita con ghiaccio e menta. Ottimo aperitivo nei caldi pomeriggi estivi.

IPAgutten79 (448) - Skui, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2014
Rød farge med lav/medium høyde på skummet. Masse aroma av ulike frukter og bær. Spesielt kirsebær og bringebær. Smaken er mer som en julebrus med litt sting i enn øl, men det er slettes ikke vondt. Friskt! Kirsebær er det man umiddelbart legger merke til, og stort mer klarer ikke jeg å identifisere, annet enn jordbær. Fruktig. Vag og behagelig surhet, litt tørr. Ettersmaken blir litt kvalmende. Tynn konsistens.

Cavie (3748) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy dark red to maroon. Aroma is sugary sweet, fruity, cherry, light tartness. Flavor is sweet cherry, fruit, sugar and sweetness. Bits of sediment in the finish with a strange touch of butter near the finish? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
