Got this 75cl bottle from Belgian Beer Station. La Trouffette is a series of very typical beers from Brasserie de Bastogne. La Trouffette Brune pours a very clear and very beautiful red brown beer topped with a fizzy, moderate and beige head. It leaves little lacing on the glass and it reduces quickly to a thin layer. Very fine carbonation. The smell very malty with touches of spices and fruits. The taste is complex, malty with hop bitterness. The aftertaste is bitter and fairly dry. Minty effect. Sweet touch and a clear alcohol presence. Overall a nice beer. It has less character than the other Trouffette beers.

sebletitje (9026) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2011
Draft @ Festival brassicole de Tournai. Brune allant vers le cuivre, col est soyeux ocre. Arôme est léger pour un malt/caramel qui se fait un peu discret, note de levure avec qcq épices et un houblon fleuri. En bouche, une bière avec un très bon profile malt grillé et note biscuitée allant vers le butterscotch et qcq fruits noirs. En arrière-goût, une fine couche houblonnée et de levure qui confère à la bière une note épicée. Ce qui me plait le plus est ce malt biscuité qui est léger mais donne un très bon fini grillé/caramel.

Swaroga (2023) - Gdańsk, POLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Intensive aroma and flavor. One of the best among other La Trouffette brand. Still has this quite strange funky wood and juniper like taste behind. Apart that dominating aromas are chocolate and dried fruits with a decent flowery hop bite. Easy to drink and the alcohol is well hidden.
