COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Liefmans is a unique, refreshing blend of beers, ripened on real cherries in our cellars, blended with natural fruitjuices of strawberry, raspberry, cherry, billberry and elderberry. The result is a slightly Champenoise pearling, fruity, and agreably sweet drink, sparkling and refreshing.

It is a ruby red color. It has a sweet raspberry aroma. The flavor of this beer is fruity. Lots of raspberry, blackberry, and strawberry flavor. Very delicious!

25cl bottle. These Belgian bottles just keep getting smaller and smaller, don't they? Anyway. Clear ruby body with a small pink head. Sour berry aroma, some brett, some sugar, light vinous notes. Sweet and sour upfront, light hoppiness and fruitiness later and a candy-like aftertaste. Very good. Just please, sell your beers in 50cl bottles. I don't enjoy paying two or three times as much as I'd pay for a German beer, and then get a bottle half as big. You don't have Scandinavian alcohol taxes, so there's no justification for that.

Das Liefmans Fruitesse on the Rocks (Doppelt gelistet - Fruitesse) aus Belgien. 0,25L Flasche mit weiss-roten Etikett. Weinrot im Glas mit schnell schwindender rötlicher Schaumkrone. Anfangs extrem süss, dies wird aber gleich von einer widerlichen Säure übertrumpft. Diese Säure macht auch alle schmeckbaren Fruchtnoten zunichte. Nicht mein Ding.

Весьма приятное фруктовое пиво. Аромат ягодный и плотный. Пена быстро опадает. Цвет очень красивый, яркий и насыщенный. Вкус не концентрированный и это радует. Чувствуется малина. В послевкусие имеется легкая ягодная кислинка. В целом для женщин почти идеал. Но споить их этим пивом не получится, так как алкоголя всего 3,8

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2017 Clear ruby. Sweet cherries nose. Sweet taste. Plain cherry flavour, low to none bitter almond notes. Not good.

tiny bottle. Purple red with small head. Really nice looking. Sweet with loads of berry. Very light lingering tartness, but could be dialed up significantly. What's here is very nice and pleasant, but it's lacking any complexity at all.

This is serious fruit beer, all you taste is fruit, the berries are totally overpowering and you lose all the hops and malt, its quite a refreshing sour sweet berry drink if you into that sort of thing, I'm not.

Bottle at Squirrel, Farnborough. To cut a short story short I quite like a fizzy fruit juice, like Schloor. This is alcoholic Schloor. More alcopop than beer. But highly drinkable nonetheless.

Piepenhenrich (1285) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2017
Somehow, Liefmans manage to create very well balanced compositions including their fruit beer. Although I usually would not recommend breweries who have excellent beer to try some fruity or other weird experiments, this one is indeed good.

jsporrer (1144) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2017
Pours a deep cranberry red with a thin white ring. Sweet fruity aroma. Taste is like Kool-Aid on steroids. Great variety of fruit flavors mixed together. Similar taste to that of a Sangria but lighter. Very crisp and refreshing and not overly sweet. Very enjoyable.
