Liefmans “on the rocks” is a mix of traditional Belgian cherry/brown beer and strawberry, raspberry, blueberry and elderberry juice on a full glass of ice.
To sweet? Not really. Just cold enough? Yup. Light on the alcohol? Also yup.
The ice dulls the sweet cherry taste a little bit so I felt it wasn’t as sweet as the traditional kriek beer that is so big in summer here. You might think fruit beers are just for girls, but I spotted at least 5 guys drinking them on Wednesday afternoon. On a hot day, they are very.very.good.
You can also find some cocktail recipes on the Liefmans website. I’m up for trying the Liefmans Crushed Chili.
Its supposed to be 35 degrees Celsius tomorrow in Brussels… try one and tell me what you think?
