Bu en bouteille de 25cl, peu de mousse et une couleur très brune foncée, en bouche on sent beaucoup le malt et pas le houblon les arômes qui sortent sont le caramel et les marrons grillés, une bonne bière de la grande distribution

Sample came in a 50 cl. can. Pours dark ruby-brown, with a thin but lingering off-white head. On the nose I get loads of sweet malt and caramel from the grains, combined with ripe melon or banana, bordering on nail varnish and bubble gum from a typical Belgian type of yeast. No hop aroma. The flavour reflects all this, it’s fruity and has a complex malty quality. It is on the sweet side, but not cloying. Fairly well balanced by a neutral, flavourless hop bitterness, presuming delivered by some noble German hop, and also by some alcohol spice. Both these lingers on the finish. Not as intensely sweet and alcoholic as many of its Belgian cousins, but the flavour profile definitely goes towards these Belgian Brunes. This said in a positive light, as it is by far more drinkable than most of those, and as my pint glass now starts to empty, I almost wish I had picked up two of these cans.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2014 Very sweet and fruity with a lot of flavor of brown sugar, chocolate and raisins. Quite tiring in the long run.

Erzengel (2609) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2013
Im Geruch muffig-komisch, im Geschmack ist allerdings davon nichts zu finden. Es ist durchaus trinkbar. Der Nachgeschmack ist schön lang nach Toffee mit angenehmer Herbe. Man schmeckt den zugesetzten Zucker. Im Nachgeschmack auch ganz leicht säuerlich. Für ein französisches Massenbier erstaunlich gut!

Fantastic ruby red colour. Very malty flavour and beautiful aroma. Paired with a steak pie it was a perfect combo. Bring this beer to UK shops please!

Clear deep brown appearance with medium head. Roasted caramel aroma, a lot of sweetness, overall decent Brown Ale style beer.

La Pelforth Brune a son gout unique, pas exceptionnelle mais sympa à boire de temps en temps :)

bdunhill (250) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 4, 2013
Dark brown with a frothy head. Wheaty and hearty flavor with lingering pallet. Full bodied rich & French, everything you would ask for in a wine, but instead in a beer!

Malty, sweet, little on the nose. Light, bitterness and a short, malty finish.
