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…

MelvinKalksma (1676) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2017

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, wood, red fruit and cherry.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque red/black beer with a slight/medium beige/pink head.

Taste/Palate:
Medium sweet with malts, caramel, wood, red fruit and cherry.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Sweet with loads of wood and red fruit, but misses that sour edge at the end. The aroma is great and the palate is perfect however.

Sample at thyme Answer. Dark auburn with thin head. Smells like vinegar and cherry tootsie pop. Or teriyaki steak. Flavor is sweet first with a mild sour note. Smooth.

Pours a dark brown that actually reveals itself as dark red as the beer thins. Low off-white head, decent retention and nice lacing. Aroma is cherries drowned in a soft sugary/caramel feel, with vinegar and tart hints. Taste is mainly sweet and slighty sour. Caramel and slight chocolate malts, slight sugary sweetness, fresh cherries feel and mild vinegarish tartness. Light to medium bodied with delicate carbonation, very gentle and silky mouthfeel, but still capable of being pleasantly creamy if held in the mouth for a few seconds. It’s not super complex but it’s very very fine and well made, with a vivid, natural cherries feel, and even quite refreshing.

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2017
Keg at Barrow Hill Rail Ale. Pours cherry pink with an off white head. A little sour water to start then deep cherry hit. Fresh.

gripweed57 (2794) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 13, 2017
From old tasting notes. Dark reddish brown color, nearly opaque. Creamy brownish, tan head. Fruity sour cherry aroma. Tangy, sour cherry flavor upfront that fades to a sour malt midtaste, then a tart, dry finish. Aftertaste is long and flavorful. Noticeable strong alcohol flavor. Very flavorful. Well made and distinctive. Warm, soothing and delicious.

Po otwarciu uderzają przyjemne wiśnie. Kolor kojarzy mi się z błotem. Jest bardzo mętne. Smak świetny. Nieco kwaśne, wiśnia i taka bardzo miła cierpkość. Piwo jest świetne.

Ritzn (1709) - GERMANY - MAR 12, 2017
Dark red with little white head. Aroma is sour cherries, some pips, and oak, bonbon, lemonade. Taste is sour cherries and rotten oak bitterness. Finish is some rather ugly bitter syrup. Drinkable and almost watery, big bubbled in the mouth. Ok
