Unique. By Nature.

Time x Skill x Nature = magic

The secret of Liefmans craft blends lies in its unique flavor, the result of a fourfold tradition going back centuries: the use of Belgian premium cherries, the masterful blending of young and mature beer, the mixed fermentation in open fermentation tanks and, finally, the lagering in beer cellars.

To age to perfection

Ever since the very beginning, Liefmans has been produced with a combination of Belgian cherries on the one hand and light, dark and roasted malt on the other. After blended fermentation lasting one week, the beer continues to mature in the cellars of the brewery in Oudenaarde in order to acquire its full expression.


Master Blenders

After maturation, it's over to the master brewer, who carries out the coupage or blends the beer. By mixing young, fresh beer with older, more mature beer, the fermentation is restarted, giving Liefmans its exceptional flavor profile.


Unique fermentation

The Liefmans brewery on the banks of the river Scheldt in Oudenaarde is a monument in the Belgian beer patrimonium. Being so close to the river Scheldt, the microflora which have developed in this region over the centuries are exceptional. This means that there's nowhere else in the world with such perfect air to create unique fruit beers.
