zacgillbanks (4654) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2016
Bottle from Continente Supermarket, Portimao, Portugal. Dark red-brown in colour with a thick white head of foam. It has a sweet medicinal cherry flavour with chocolate and liquorice notes followed by currants and dried fruit on the smooth, creamy finish. I can’t tell if this is really good or really fake!

DijkBier (178) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - OCT 23, 2016
Bottle in cafe in Utrecht, pours clear dark brown with a firm tan head. Hardly aroma, first soapy, later a small tone of banana and yellow fruit; some unknown weird element in it. Taste of roasted malts, light to medium sweetness, banana. OK, but not a very specific or complex beer.

CyborgX (69) - THAILAND - OCT 16, 2016
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.
