Brouwerij Liefman's Cuvee Brut
There is a lot of overlap between a Biere de Champagne and a second-fermented style like a lambic. Cuvee Brut walks that line without falling firmly into either category.
With the carbonation of a Champagne beer and the flavor of a cherry lambic, Cuvee Brut is bubbly without being sweet. In fact, drinkers pouring a flute of this beer before the clock strikes midnight should prepare for a tart, slightly sour taste on the back end.
That little footnote aside, Cuvee Brut is definitely a welcome New Year's party pour. It pours red with a pinkish head, bubbles in the glass as if poured from a champagne bottle and has a great whiff of sweet cherry and apple."Liefman's Cuvee Brut is a pink sparkling beer made with cherries and not too hard to find," RateBeer's Tucker says. "Very effervescent, slightly more sour than sweet -- a dry, delightful beer." -- Written by Jason Notte in Boston.
