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…
EXCELLENT! Beautiful garnet color with a small head. Initial strong sour taste with a note of sweetness in the middle and a effervescent finish. Very refreshing. BUY AGIN!

On draft at The Porter, Atlanta, GA. Nose is Cherry potpourri. Flavor is incredible. Sour, sweet, full mouth that reminds me of something from childhood. A certain birthday party--toy--cake---I don’t know, but wow.
I know the 5.0 beer rating is rare and reserved for the holy grail of brews, but that’s what Liefman’s Cuvée Brut is for me. It pours a gorgeous shade of amber and has a short lasting pink head. Smells like cherries and a hint of malt. Tons of sour cherries in the flavor, but subtle and never ever overwhelming. A dry palate which is in stark contrast to their Fruitesse (also delicious). Tons of character. I seriously cannot say enough good things about this beer.
The only downside is that the cheapest I have found it for is $9.40 (CAD) a bottle but it is worth every penny.
