Bottle - No distinct aroma, first taste was strange bready bubblegum, with a strong dominant taste of some nasty unknown ingredient, that almost turned my stomach and had me throwing up! Another craft beer not worth the price of the bottle it was sold in! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

D’un brun foncé, la Lefort, présente une belle mousse de couleur crème d’environ 2 cm d’épaisseur. Le nez est rond, sur le malt, le caramel avec une pointe de café. La première attaque est souple sur le caramel et les céréales, très légèrement citronnée. Les arômes de café prédominent ensuite, le tout sur une agréable amertume donnant une touche de fraîcheur à la bière. Le final laisse ensuite davantage les arômes de pruneaux s’exprimer avec en arrière goût une point de chocolat. L’ampleur en bouche et la longueur sont bonnes et le tout bien homogène. On regrettera seulement un manque de variations dans les arômes. Aucune surprise ne ressort dans cette dégustation pour pousser plus loin le plaisir.

On tap at Örebro Ölcafé. Fruity smell with caramel, malty and wineous. Similar taste, very sweet. Very oxidized. Not my thing.

Bottle from Continente, Algarveshopping. Pours redish brown with a huge head that lasts. The aroma is candied fruit, funky yeast, some roast and some chocolate. The taste is rather short but follows through on the fruit theme, although more sugar and malt is present. Very short aftertaste, however. Nice beer, a very good representative of the type, and dangerous as it doesn’t give away the 8.5% ABV in the taste at all.

Donker fruit, winterse kruiden... geen noten? Boterig en zoet... wat pittige afdronk... rogge? Drinkbaar, niet denderend... wel mooi
