From: Binny’s in Champaign, IL
Glass: US pint glass
Reminiscent of a more obviously beer-based New Glarus Belgian Red, Liefman’s Cuvee Brut blends tart cherry with malt and mild sourness in a very respectable fashion. Slightly disappointed at the "added natural flavors" aspect of the beer, I would probably not get this again as a result.
Pours a 1cm, light pink foam for a head, composed of small bubbles, with fairly poor retention. Head leaves minimal lacing along sides of glass as it descends, eventually fading to a thick ring of bubbles around the glass’ perimeter. Body is a medium-darkness brown color with magenta hues, light bringing out the red tones in the color. Body is semi-hazy from sediment.
Aroma is of tart cherry juice alongside mild apple cider-like vinegar.
Taste opens with tart cherry juice mixed with medium-dark malt sweetness and light acidic tartness. Cherries, malt, and tartness persist through the close. Tasting concludes with tart cherry juice, mild sweetness, and a bit of lactic acid tartness lingering on the throat and tongue.
Beer is medium-bodied with medium to medium-high carbonation. The result is a crisp, easily drinkable beer that finishes dry and with little residual stickiness on the palate.
