COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belle & Forte is een mooi donker amber kleurig bier met een alcohol percentage van 7% dat bij de eerste aanzet van de degustatie een zoetige volmondige kruidige complexiteit te weeg brengt die overgaat in een frisse fruitige bittere afdronk waarbij een vleugje citrus geproefd kan worden wat te wijten is aan het gebruik van een Amerikaanse hopsoort. Een ideale dorstlesser voor in de zomer, maar kan ook perfect dienen als degustatie bier voor in de winter.

Stubby bottle 330 ml, from a trade with Countbeer, thanks! Into a tulip glass, ABV 7% Deep red brown colour on the body, clear, with two fingers of light beige head on top. Average retention, light lacing left on the glass. Aroma of spices, caramel, toasted malts. Taste of caramel, spices, light toffee, grass, herbs, some dark fruits. Quite bitter on the aftertaste, with long duration. Medium body, fizzy carbonation, a bit high. Nicely dry on the palate. Nice beer, quite interesting on its palate of flavours.
