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

Sampled on tap at La Trappe. A really nice sour. Not a pungent as some sours but still cleans the palate and goes down really smooth.

GTAEgeek (2018) - 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!

SkillsFactory (598) - ITALY - NOV 16, 2016
33 cl. blend 2015, aperta il 16/11/2016. Rossa con riflessi caramello, schiuma rosa molto chiara fine di media persistenza. Aroma di ciliegia, brett, leggere note legnose e di cannella. Al palato sempre ciliegia e brettanomyces, uva fragola, finale legnoso ma comunque sbilanciato verso il dolce. Ben carbonata, corpo medio, texture oleosa.

CurlyJoe (40) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 4, 2016
Aroma of cherries; sweet and tart. Relatively mild compared to some other Krieks, not necessarily a bad thing though. Dark red in colour with a hint of brown. Light, white froth. Clean, crispy, fruity taste with a decent serving of sourness. Light and bubbly on the palate. Refreshing beer that can easily be drunk in any weather, all day.

karpik (785) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - NOV 2, 2016
Strong punch of cherries in nose followed by caramel and funky notes. Pours ruby with pink-ish head. Taste is medium sweet with cherries, caramel, and slight sour with lacto and funky notes. Low bitter finish, tart. Overall good, easy going.

CyborgX (69) - THAILAND - NOV 1, 2016
Bottle - Aroma not particularly strong. Taste is slightly sweet and stronger sour cherries. No other distinguishable flavours. The sourness becomes more dominant as you drink more. Overall a very easy to drink cherry beer, but don't expect it to be sweet ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,33l bottle from Merkur. Aroma and taste of sour cherries is not what I expect from a beer. Not my thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
