This beer used to be available from the LCBO but now outside of Kegs or going to a bar it doesn't seem that I can get it anymore. Does anyone know the best way I could get a hold of it?

    I don't know a dealer in Ontario, but you can contact Gregory Mconway, because he lives in Ontario and has rated Liefmans Fruitesse I hope this is useful for your research.

The Village Idiot Pub (126 McCaul St Toronto, Ontario M5T 1W2) sells Liefmans Fruitesse.

Here is what they say about this craft beer:

Liefmans Fruitesse

4.2% alc./vol. 33CL A fresh Belgian beer blend, maturing for 18 months on cherries in Liefmans cellars, artfully blended with natural juices of strawberry, raspberry, cherry, blueberry and juniper berry resulting in a fruity, pleasantly sweet, sparkling and refreshing beer.

Here is what the LCBO has to say about this must try craft Beer:

Red Berry

Yes, “red berry”, because there’s some excellent combos out there. Both of our winners in this category come out of Belgium, but can be found in LCBOs and pubs around Ontario.

Liefmans Fruitesse bills itself as an appetizer beer. It’s a deep red, cranberry juice colour, sparkling, and oh-so-juicy. It also tastes something like cranberry juice, with a bit more sweetness, and a nice alcoholic kick. Like how you (or at least Jess) wish wine would taste. There’s no cranberry involved though; it’s actually cherry, raspberry, elderberry, strawberry, and bilberry. - Best Fruit Beers You Can Find Locally

  • Yeah I know the bars in Toronto you can get it (that's one, you can also get it at Prenup and Town Crier), I want to get bottles of it. They used to be in the LCBO but no longer.

  • Yes, I know. At least it's not too far (and most importantly: online). Commented May 25, 2017 at 8:04

    3000 kilometres isn't far? In any case, despite having a web site, they do not offer delivery: "NOTICE: WE CURRENTLY DO NOT OFFER DELIVERY. ALL ITEMS PURCHASED ARE FOR PICKUP IN STORE." gullliquorstore.com/cart Selling and shipping alcohol out of province is probably illegal anyways.
