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

It starts nicely tart then goes to a sweetness that fades fast to a dry long finish. The cherries taste very natural. This really is beer not lemonade like some in the style. Very nice!

Kita (1983) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JAN 8, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Pours cloudy ruby brown with thin quickly diminishing tan-like head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of cherries, must, tannins, vinegar and funk. Taste starts with sweet and sour cherry, following is mild malty and tart fruity, while finish is mild bitter. Medium body, slick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Surprisingly sweet for a blend of sour browns. Minus and minus equals plus?

tandembrauer (1280) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours reddish brown with big beige head. Aroma of overripe cherries, sherry, amaretto, almonds, fruit bubblegum, dark dried fruits, leather, horse stable, glue. Taste sweet with a lingering sourness. Cherry finish and a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Maris (1425) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2017 From a 330ml bottle on 3/1/2017. Pours an opaque reddy brown with not much head. The aroma is fruity and spritzy, with strawberry and raspberry most prominent. Its all sweet berries and cherries up front, with just a barest hint of bitterness to counter. The palate is quite thick and syrupy, with average to lively carbonation. Not necessarily my sort of beer, but well made and refreshing.

Ruikt naar cassis, ziet er ook een beetje zo uit, en het smaakt - je raadt het al - naar cassis! (met een licht zuur vleugje)

GTAEgeek (2050) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2016
750 mL bottle, labelled Cuvee Brut and bottled in 2012, shared at our housewarming party. Pours clear ruby brown, with a small, bubbly head. The nose is black cherries, cedar, black pepper, light balsamic, and apple. Sweet and fruity up front, with a subtle and smooth sour flavor. Light body, effervescent, smooth, and velvety. This beer is simply excellent! Great balanced flavor, and pristine palate.

Das Kriek Brut ist rtlich braun, der Schaum ist beige, etwas rosafarben. Das Bier ist suerlich fruchtig, leicht holzig. Insgesamt recht mild und wunderbar harmonisch. Ein sehr angenehmes Kriek!
