A dark cola brown beer with a frothy off white head. A heady, red wine-like aroma, ripe strawberries, raspberries and cherries. Medium mouthfeel. The taste carries on from the aroma, bold slightly sweet red berry fruit, with a background roasted malt flavour. The finish is fruity and sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LeFort est une bière brune complexe de 8,5° avec une touche sucrée et fruitée. Le malte d'orge, à la base clair, est torréfié et confère ainsi à la bière un parfait équilibre. La bière est légèrement aromatisée laissant dans la bouche une pointe de chocolat et de caramel, et la haute fermentation lui donne ce léger côté fruité. Tout cela donne une bière brune à la robe rougâtre avec un goût unique.

33cl bottle @ home from Mitra. Clear dark ruby color, quite big slightly creamy beige head, good lacing. Aroma caramel, dark fruits, moderated red wine in the nose, flavor is the same plus hint of licorice, yeast, slightly roasted malt, molasses. Alcohol is quite present. Taste medium sweetness, lightly to medium bitter, hint of sourness, slightly salty / acidic. Full body, very sticky texture, average carbonation, fruity bitter-sweet finish. Good dessert beer, but too fruity / wineish for me therefore it’s not my style.
