Liefmans has a pretty solid reputation, which is why I bought this beer on a whim without first doing some research (should've checked reviews on BA on my phone before I bought this). This beer was disappointing. It started good with a beautiful dark cherry color and cute pink foam with great lacing. The the beer smelled like cherry candy and plastic-y phenols. The beer is very fruity, black cherries, raspberrys and especially strawberries are easily identified but it is unfortunately also artificially sweeted that leaves a metallic aftertaste. There is a weird bitterness that I'm not sure if it's from the sweeteners or the fermentation. I would not buy this beer again. It wasn't too bad at $9/bottle, but there are much better fruit beers for the price including others made by the same brewery.
