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…

Sampler at DBS. Brown color with sweet cherry flavor. Timfoolery decided it tasted a little like grenadine. Decent, but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LouisP (574) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2017
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.
