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

Pours a reddish brown, almost a watered down pink color. Smells sour and of tart cherries. Taste is slightly sour and carbonated at first but finishes with the right amount of cherry tartness. I find this very easy to drink and not as sour as some of the other fruit beers. Not quite sure why this is labeled as a flemish sour? Doesnt taste like others in the variety.

Very great fruitbeer, which can be used for aperitif, maybe some will find it too sour and the framboise could be the better choice. Has the right sourness, but also some perfume/grape flavor, which can be a challenge. Great beer

Good appearance and great lacing on the glass. Tingly palate. Generally not my favorite style but this is really good. Very drinkable. Goes down quickly in big sips. Little funky yeast flavor in there on the aftertaste but overall just really sour and cherry flavor. Does get a tad too sour for me though as it warms up. Maybe thats why Im taking big sips, to finish it?

JamesD (244) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Pours a blood red with a delicious aroma of cherries and a mild tartness. The flavor is soft in the beginning, building up momentum to a bubbly and light sour cherry flavor, followed by an assertive sour aftertaste which can take you by surprise. Excellent, though a bit pricey

2006 bottle, pours deep red with a thin and bubbly light pink head. Aroma is nothing but full on cherries almost as if I cut into the actual fruit and took a big sniff. A tart smell is also present. Taste is very nice and echos the smell. Tart and tangy, this one has full flavor of nice tart cherries with a sour punch there in at the end. This really is an excellent fruit beer. I really like this one, I just wish it wasnt 6 bucks a bottle.

In my humble opinion, this is the best beer I have ever tasted. The color, the texture, the taste that explodes in your mouth. Picture a cherry pie meeting the best texture and aroma in a beer that you have ever had. I have seen this sold in 6 oz. glasses for $6 each at a few bars here in Houston. My favorite beer.

Beer5000 (6315) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2007
375 ml bottle @ Kristiansand Lambic festival. Dark red body with a pink head. Aroma is reasonable matured cherry with certain sweetness. Flavor is balanced sweet, fruity, sour cherry. Not bad to be a kriek in the more sweeter league. Fruity finish.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2007
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Rich red color with a puffy pink head. Aroma is sweet and loaded with cherries but with a nice and sharp tartness underneath it all. Flavor has a very nice combination of sweetness and cherries mixed with a pleasant sour flavor that ties it together. High quality.
