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…

Crash_the_dog (163) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - APR 5, 2014
Slightly cloudy, rose-pink color, with an old-lace head that quickly dissipates. Nose is slightly tart cherry, followed by some slightly tart cherry. Taste is significantly more sour, although the berry and cherry notes come through loud and clear. Crisp and light, with almost a fruit soda profile. Terrific for the style. Not too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Une biere brune, presque mauve avec aucune effervescence ni carbonatation. Au nez, levures sauvages et cerises assez présentes. J'ai comme une petite impression de savon pas tellement intéressante qui ne m'annonce rien de bon pour la suite... En bouche, les cerises sont forts présentes et très sucrées donnant un goût bien fruité à cette bière. La bière est aucunement effervescente ce qui donne une facilité à boire au liquide. Le corps est fort ample, ce qui donne une certaine lourdeur à la bière. L'acidité est tenue au minimum, on dirait plus une bière aux fruits qu'une bière surette. Une bière au final un peu non orthodoxe mais qui fonctionne.

BBE 02/2025. Punertavan ruskehtava väri, mieto häipyvä vaahto. Suutuntuma hampaita syövän imelän hapan, makea, nautittavan hyvä.

Mishnok (379) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2017
Doesn't look that appealing when poured to be honest. Colour is a bit turgid brown/red. Good cherry aroma which is in the taste. A bit sour and woody with some tart bitterness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oxytocin (206) - AUSTRIA - JUL 19, 2017
330 ml bottle, clear red with pink-ish head which is quickly diminishing. lots of cherries in the aroma with a nice fruity sourness. medium to light sweetness. medium body. slightly dry finish which kind of makes it very refreshing

Tolles Weinrot, in der Nase deutlich vergorene Kirschen. Im Trunk schön dezente Säure, sehr angenehm, dann Kirsch, leicht süß, hinten weg immer herber werden. Bisher unter den Sauren mein absolutes Highlight. Fantastisch wie sich das Bier zum Abgang hin noch verändert. Toll!
