I like these beers, although they are a bit hard to even really classify as a beer. Poured a clearish brown with red hues into my flute glass. Smells really nice, like tart sweet red cherries, really cant go too wrong with a small like that. Taste is cherry juice, with a hint of wheat in the taste and a bit of bitterness at the end, really quite pleasent and tasty, nice dessertlike beer. Mouthfeel is syrupy sweet and slick. Drinkability, well, honestly if I had enough I could drink this stuff all night long, its really pleasent to drink and pretty damn tasty. A nice offering from Liefmans.

Poured from the tap at Stagione's in Shanghai China, A welcome surprise. Poured into a 500mL imperial pint.
A: Pure deep red color, perfectly clear. Head is offwhite, foamy, and has ok retention.
S: Cherry candy. Overwhelmingly sweet like smelling a candy apple.
T: Not as strong as the smell suggests. Good cherry pie profile. Very sweet but with some more balancing malt. Tart and sugary. Just OK.
Overall: Not as subtle as many other fruit beers/lambics. This is very in your face as a fruit beer. No typical beer characteristics aside from a side malt note. OK but probably won't want again.
Serving type: on-tap
