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

CyborgX (90) - THAILAND - NOV 1, 2016
Bottle - Aroma not particularly strong. Taste is slightly sweet and stronger sour cherries. No other distinguishable flavours. The sourness becomes more dominant as you drink more. Overall a very easy to drink cherry beer, but don't expect it to be sweet ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16erBlech (501) - Burgenland, AUSTRIA - OCT 26, 2016
0,33l bottle from Merkur. Aroma and taste of sour cherries is not what I expect from a beer. Not my thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Banzale (189) - FRANCE - OCT 19, 2016
Acheter Tabac&co palais des bires dans famiflora dottignies. Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur brune rougetre avec de beaux reflet ! Mousse inexistante. Au nez cest fruit mais aussi une note dacidit type vinaigre , un peu daigre doux au nez avec des pinsement acide . En bouche sucre de fruit prsent et agrable a change des sucre rajouter ! Un peu de balsamique en bout et une note acide lgre. Malte prsent mais bien quilibre peu tre car cest une basse de brune ? Changement radical et apprciable par rapport aux autres "kriek" du march.

mkel07 (5502) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2016
Bottle from Beer Cartel 120916. While this beer doesnt look all that great the flavour certainly more than makes up for it. Tart cherry with a big sour aftertaste and the slightest hint of something sweet as well.

Gehbe (322) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - OCT 4, 2016
Ruby brown with a small light tan head and nice lacing. Rich aroma of cherries and cherry pits, caramel, dried apples, hints of spice and funk. Tastes medium sweet and sour, very light crispy bitterness in the finish. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, fairly sticky. Amazing aroma, but I wish it was dryer.

33cl bottle at home. Appearance: deep ruby red with medium light pink head. Aroma: sour nose with notes of cherries and slight strawberry and some leather far away. Taste: heavy sweetness and low bitterness with pleasant tartness. Strong cherry and blueberries. Palate: medium bodied, sticky texture and soft carbonation.

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
- tiefrote Farbe mit leichter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - wunderbares Aroma nach Sauerkirschen und etwas Mandel und Marzipan - passende, gut moussierende Carbonisierung - geschmacklich wirkt das ganze sehr natrlich, d.h. kein aufgesetzter knstlicher Kirschgeschmack - die Sure steht klar im Vordergrund, verbindet sich aber sehr angenehm mit einem leicht holzigen Kirschgeschmack - der Abgang betont diese Sure dann nochmals Fazit: Kann nicht ganz an das Boon Kriek Mariage Parfait heranreichen, aber immer noch ein sehr gutes Kirschlambic
