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

LinusStick (3328) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2007
A nice sour ale. Aroma of sour cherries. Pour was a dark brown with a nice 4 finger off white head that lasted about half the drink. Taste was all sour cherries with hint of sweetness coming in and out. I was expecting something a bit more sour, but this was good for what it was.

Second time drinking this, first time in Brussels, this time, purchased from the LCBO. First time drinking it I had it in a snifter, this time, a tall beer glass. Typical paper wrapping and unlabled bottle associated with this beer/beer type. Aroma is a sweet/sour cherry bouquet with a malty accent and hints of yeast at the end. The flavour is tart with a strong cherry taste and a heavy semi-dry ale finish. Palate is a medium-heavy body with a soft carbonation and a large constant thin head around .5cm. Excellent beer, comparatively steep price a the LCBO but would purchase again.

Good stuff. Yummy cherry flavor without being too fruity.But it still has a good beer flavor that stays in your mouth.plalette is quite lively. Color is like cranberry juice- not murky like some fruit beers. . Ilike it alot.

Bobsy (194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2007
375ml bottle from the LCBO. Unmarked, but wrapped in nice decorative papaer and corked. Poured a murky purple colour, with a pink head that died pretty quickly. Aroma of cherries and wheat. The flavour reminded me of a cider, because the fruitiness of the sour cherries gave way to a nice dry finish. A nice beer, but not something Id usually go for this time of year, and at $5 the price is a bit on the steep side.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2007
375 mL unmarked (paper-wrapped) green bottle. Translucent purple-brown with a small but persistent pink head. (No lacing.) The aroma is sharp and filled with tart cherries. The taste is great - the cherries are real, not maraschino syrup. And quite tart, leaving a lovely, full, lingering aftertaste. Finally, a fruit beer I like!

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2007 375ml bottle, no labels on it, wrapped in paper. The cork has "2007" written on it, which I guess means you can age this, but Id rather just have it now. Pours a murky ruby colour into my snifter, with a medium sized pink head. Aroma: cherries, alcohol, wheaty malts, some yeast, and something sour. Taste: Wow, sweet and sour to the max, loads of cherries, wheat, a touch of alcohol. The sourness eventually fades and some sweet malts and fruitiness takes over in the aftertaste. Its a neat little beer. The alcohol flavour seems to take away from the other more pleasant aspects, at least in my opinion.

pootzboy (1694) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2007
Bottle: Murkey ruby-brown ale with a modest fluffy cap Aroma: wonderful blend of tart berry fragrances and musty blanket odours..excellent Favour follows aroma with other nuances essentially tartness from lacto tastes and berries fight candi sweetness to find balance and the tartness wins out marginally. I dont like sweet krieks but as a commercial effort this is the best.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - NOV 19, 2007
Pours a deep dark burgundy red with a lightly pink head that slowly dissolves into nothing. The aroma is mainly dominated by cherries and sweet perfume. The flavour is sweet, and sour, with a good bold cherry flavour, much like a sour cherry sucker. All and all, the best sour ale, and the best fruit beer ive had so far. A tasty beverage.
