Details

Liefmans, one of the cult breweries of Belgium since 1679, have been producing beers of distinctive flavour derived from a process of mixed fermentation in open vessels, a blending of young and old beers and bottle-aging in the cellars at the Oudenaarde Brewery. Liefmans Fruitesse is a classic Belgian fruit beer. Aromas and flavours are dominated by cherries, raspberries, and other berries along with a bit of marzipan. Satisfyingly sweet but not cloying, the fruits are on full-display and are accented by a bit of extra sweetness with no hops to distract. Moderately carbonated yet smooth and creamy, this sparkling ruby-red drink is an enjoyable fruit beer.

I was very happy when I ordered thie Liefmans Fruitesse beer. I thought I'd give it a go as I was already a fan of Leffe Ruby beer. I really enjoyed the Fruitesse. It still has a great beer taste and the fruit has a slight sharpness to it, rather than being sweet.
I'd definitely recommend it.

I do enjoy a lambic however I found these to be a little on the disappointing side. They are nice enough to drink but for once I would agree with others and say one of these at a time is plenty.
Good, but not the best

Though an enjoyable fruit beer, there are other more balanced beers available. If you don't want a fruit beer thats particularly sweet, then this is a solid bet; especially at such good value.

As this is a Belgian fruit beer, I expected a punch and a lot of sweetness. Nay. The fruity taste is more balanced and this is a very enjoyable beer. Other fruit beers can be too sugary and quickly sickening. This one is not. Will definitely order this one again.
Very good
