Tripel LeFort is a golden blonde beer of 8.8% ABV and sets itself apart through its crisp, fruity aroma and beautifully rounded full flavour. The top-fermenting yeast used for Tripel LeFort results in a beer with vanilla-clove aromas as well as a fruity taste of bananas and red apples. Pleasant hints of citrus, lime and roses make this into a balanced beer that is intriguingly complex at the same time.
A beer with body… the full flavour combined with the alcohol give you a warm feeling that slowly eases away.
During the European Beer Star 2016, Tripel LeFort was elected as the world’s best triple beer.
At the Beer World Cup 2018 in Nashville, USA, Tripel LeFort also received the gold medal for world's best triple beer and few weeks later, Tripel LeFort received another gold medal at the World Beer Awards 2018 (UK).
Omer Vander Ghinste met Marguerite Vandamme for the first time in 1898. Marguerite was the granddaughter of Felix Verscheure, owner of Brasserie LeFort in Kortrijk. Felix Verscheure started that brewery in 1854 and ran it for over 50 years.
When Felix Verscheure died in 1911,however, he had outlived both his children and his children-in-law. Marguerite Vandamme inherited the brewery and a lot of pubs and cafés in Kortrijk. The brewing was discontinued and that activity transferred to Bellegem.
The Brasserie LeFort period was characterized by beers with a high alcohol content. LeFort and Tripel LeFort pay tribute to the rich tradition of this brewery.
