COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This classy beer represents the perfect marriage between the fresh accents and slightly acidic flavour of the black cherries. Liefmans Kriek-Brut is a mixed fermentation beer, with every hectolitre containing up to 13 kilos of fruit! Liefmans Kriek-Brut is a perfect blend of Oud Bruin and Goudenband from different vintages, and can consist of between 15 and 20 different batches of beers. The beer is matured for 18 months, bringing out the very best of its intense flavour. Liefmans Kriek-Brut is a deep reddish-brown colour, with a pale head and wood and almond notes. On the palette, you can clearly taste the slightly sweet, yet at the same time gently bitter fruit flavours. This is a beer that just oozes class…

Pours a hazy copper brown from the bottle with bubbly off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of mild funk and sweet cherry notes, a hint of barrel. Taste follows, fruity and slightly sweet, but a nice funk behind. Decent but more dessert than beer.

beerplace (2394) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2018 750ml bottle from West Coast LRS Kerrisdale. Pours a red-ish copper with a tan head. Aroma is a bit balsamic with cherry notes. Similar taste with moderate sweetness, low sourness, chocolate and cherry notes. Interesting, but the sugary sweetness in this beer makes it similar to the mass market products.

Inoven (1068) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - FEB 10, 2018
Flesje gedeeld met Tomhendriksen. Roodbruin bier met rose schuim. Geur en smaak is zuur. Nasmaak is fruitig en toch zuur.

Fles gedeeld door Inoven. Blended in 2015, 2 jaar gerijpt. Het is een donker roodbruin bier met een roze schuim. Het heeft een typische kersen geur. De smaak is zoet, kersen met een wat zurige nasmaak.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2018 Sour cherry zing. Bit of a funky aroma. Not too sweet. Refreshing, need to drink one on a hot day.

330ml bottle. Pours deep red brown. Cherry, strawberry, sharp yoghurt acidity, some herbal character, some minerality. Nice carbonation. Good.

Pours a deep brown with a red tinge. Nose is full of cherries. Taste is very sweet upfront, big cherry presence, slightly sugary with a sharp tart and slightly sour finish. Good dessert beer
