Liefmans Cuvée Brut has taken the silver medal at European Beer Star 2013 in the German city of Munich. Now in its 10th year, European Beer Star is the largest professional beer competition in Europe.
A 100-strong jury of brewmasters, beer sommeliers and experts in the field subjected each beer to a blind tasting. They sampled a record 1,512 beers from 40 countries, assessing each one on its colour, aroma, head, and flavour.
‘This prize means an awful lot to us,’ says Marc Coessens, brewmaster at Liefmans. ‘That such a respected jury should praise Liefmans Cuvée Brut so highly only confirms that our focus on quality and top ingredients is in the right place.’
