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

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.

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.

SHIG (4935) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 19, 2007
Bottle: Poured a ruby red with a thin white head. The aroma is a sourness with a cherry pit like. The taste is tart with cheeries but also nice acidic/carbonated sense to it.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2009 Poured from a bottle. Poured a slightly cloudy rose color with a decent reddish head. Aroma of sour cherries, some oak, and funk. Immediate tart cherry flavor smooths out in the middle and gives way to a slightly tart, oaky finish. Nice carbonation and mouthfeel.

Picked up a 12.7 oz bottle at Cellars Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN and sampled while making beer bread with this brew. Pours a hazy rusty red brew with a fizzy pink head that has good retention and lacing. Aroma of tart cherries, Belgian yeast funk, and sour berries. Taste is medium bodied, well-carbonated with plenty of tart cherries, tart berries and some yeast. Finish is just as tart as its flavor with a fizzy yeast and cherry aftertaste. Nice!

On tap. Nice reddish hue with a good pinkish hued beige head. Smell of tart cherries, a touch of belgiany yeastiness, and a slight hint of sour vinegar, but all very nicely. Taste is sweet, cherry, and moderately and nicely tart with a touch of a slight funky belgian character. Somewhat bubbly and crisp, but not overly fizzy and foamy. I really enjoyed this beer.

375 ml bottle - pours an opaque reddish brown with a rapidly diminishing pinkish head. Sour cherry aroma along with some yeast. Flavour quite nice with lots of sour fruit and a very dry finish. Excellent beer.
