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.

I drank this beer chilled and really enjoyed it. I haven’t had any of their beers since the trouble, but this reminded me of them, if in a subdued way. Lacking the sourness and the acidity, Fruitesse offered a soft, semi-sweet (barely sweet) all natural drinking experience. Not a hint of artificial flavours, this delicate beer is to be sipped and enjoyed, ideal for summer evenings by the tennis court! Bottle-conditioned I think...

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.

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.

Eerste indruk frambozen on the rocks. Ruikt heel fruitig naar bessen. Ziet er ook uit als dieprode frambozen limonade. Alleen kan deze variant nog bij uitschenken een lichtrode schuimkraag creëren. Leuk effect maar deze is ook weer bijna net zo snel verdwenen. Smaakt heel fruitig naar bessen en vooral de frambozen springen er bij mij uit. Vooral zoet beetje zuur en het bittertje hoe je hier echt niet te zoeken. Als biertje kan ik daarom helaas ook niet al te veel punten voor geven. Het is eigenlijk iets teveel een cassis limonade met alcohol. Hou je op hete dagen van mierzoet en toch verfrissend dan kun je deze variant kiezen maar als je moet rijden dan zou ik toch voor de eerder genoemde cassis gaan.
