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

Extreme head with a slight pink tinge. Strong tart scent. Slightly thick and syropy mouth. Bitter sweet, no make that tart and sweet. Candy like but less sweet. Not bad but I am not a huge fruit beer fan. I should taste hops and malt not berries in my beer.

Bottle, bought @ Kolding Vinhandel.
[Vintage 2006]
Pours a deep red-brown with a small fizzy head that soon disappears. Aroma is quite subdued. Naturally slight tart cherries appear, some oak, some barnyard, some dirt and a dose of sweet caramel. Lightly oily mouthfeel despite a relatively high carbonation. Flavour is light tart cherries, some sweetness, light oak, light liqourice and a finish with heavy sweet caramel (which surprised me). It is tart, yes, and dries out my mouth to perfection, but it aint no geuze, so this might appeal to fruit beer lovers as well as lambic lovers. Wonderful.

375 ml bottle Cap covering the cork reads Jan2015 5027 Muddy reddish brown body with a small pink head. Sour cherry aroma. Tart, sourness is well balanced, not too tart or sweet.

StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2007
375ml bottle - pours deep, cloudy ruby/brown with a slightly pink head on top. Aroma is very sour and fruity, obviously with cherries. I love it. Flavour is equally impressive...I really like this beer. A lot. Lots of sour cherries, some yeastiness, and the fruitiness of the beer is in no way overwhelming or obtrusive. Very full, effervescent and creamy mouthfeel. Beautiful. As far as "fruit beers" go, this one is the best Ive had.

375ml bottle. A slightly cloudy brown with a red tinge and a moderate, off-white head. Sour cherry and yeast aroma. flavour began sweet with plenty of cherries before a tart finish. Very enjoyable.

dark red in color with a nice head. Smells interesting and a bit too subtle for my liking of cherries and yeast. I thoroughly enjoyed the tartness. However, the amount of fruit in the one was amazing - way too much for me. It seemed to really detract from the enjoyable sour palate. Almost seemed like I was drinking a very carbonated capri sun.

barncatmatt (2283) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2007
375 ml bottle. birthday present from my brother. pours a hazy dark deep brownish-red with a small fizzy white head. the bubble stay and make a little off white ring around the edges of the glass. aromas are sour cherries and some funk, i also picked a a few medicinal wiffs from sip to sip. flavours are delicious sour cherry with sweetness fading to sourness. so drinkable that i wish i had more of this. a very good beer.

Bottle wrapper says Leifmans Kriekbier, biere aux cerises, 6% alc./vol. I tried this beer on November 25, 2007 after purchasing from my lcal LCBO outlet. The beer was a beautiful ruby red in colour with a medium sized tan couloured head. The aroma was sour cherries and not much else. The mouthfeel was sour, full-bodied, slightly creamy and champagny. The flavout was powerfully sour cherries, and a huge bite on the back of the tongue.

Nice, mild balsamic aroma with fruit and sugar. Flavor is mildly sour and fruity, clear cherry flavor. Not as sour as some of the style, but sour nonetheless. Nice tall head, well carbonated. Moderate yeast.
