gEUS (1267) - Linden, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2014
330 ml bottle at home. Pours dark amber with a slight light beige head. Aroma is pure hazelnut, some buttery side as well, quite nice. Light body, little sour touch to it.

kraddel (3623) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle Pours dark brown , with a red glow . Small white head. Smell is rather sweet, buttery grains , slightly earthy , leaves . Taste is spiced, bitter, earth , very light ( wattery - not used to this in the de leite beers ) . Carbonation is very fine but perhaps a tad too much . Think this could make a good base for an ’imperial version ’ , but this is just too damn wattery for me ... As usual with the de leite beers, the label is just so damn ugly and bad , you are always surprised by the fact that the beer doesnt suck . Yet I must day I liked the other ones of this brewery more ...

JefVerstraete (1592) - Ghent, BELGIUM - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle, 33cl ’Brouwer op bezoek, Gentse Biervereniging’. Dark brown colour, beige foam. Medium carbonation. Aroma of dark fruit and caramel, also some spices. Medium sweet, medium bitter. Not very well balanced. Ok, nothing special.

domienS (132) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2014
Dark brown beer with a red shine. Very low saturation, has a creamy beige stable head. No kling. Smells oxidated, chocolaty, a hint of coffee, a bit of raisin, negative hint of wet carboard. Tastes irony and sweet, also tastes oxidated. Palate is full and leaves a negative taste.

77ships (4298) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2014
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. Bottled on 26/03/2014. Furniture / wood brown, big creamy tanned head. Heavy liquorish smell, furniture, polish & lots of leaves, eh. Bitter leaves, allspice, light anis, liquorish, varnish, furniture, polish taste, mineral feel to it. Mineral, faint metallic, touch fizzy body. Okay but far from top in the executed style, there are a lot of middling beers like this in Belgium & I expected something better from De Leite. I’m used to much better from them.

corkyrory66 (705) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
Bière brune également destinée au marché italien, refermentée en bouteille, titrant à 6,5 % abv. Couleur brun roux, roux en transparence. Clarté nette. Bulles fines partout vives. Mousse caramel foncé à brun clair en nappage crémeux. Arômes de bois de fût, sureau, pointe de muscade, kriek, lambic, rodenbach. 1ère bouche soyeuse avec une prise sur le malt torréfié, café, chocolat noir, sureau. Arrière-bouche avec du bois brûlé, feu de foin, kriek, fève de cacao brute. 2ème sur du malt chocolat, café, bois de fût. 3ème sur la chicorée grillée, chocolat noir, miel d’acacia. Arrière-bouche maltée ferme. La longueur est de malt, brett, sirop de Liège, arabica, réglisse, lambic. Assemblage hétéroclite, parfois lié d’une certaine inspiration et parfois surréaliste... La levure est structurée, épicée, beau caractère. L’alcool est bien progressif, bon soutien à cette bière malgré son petit niveau. La finale représente une montée en régime, à l’équilibre très joli. CONCLUSION : une bière qui mérite toutes les attentions, très bien faite, avec des côtés vraiment séduisants de grande recherche. Une bière certainement pour connaisseurs, pas facile d’abord, puis qui se révèle sur la longueur. Je lui ai fait l’honneur d’un verre calice de Chimay … et je ne le regrette pas ...

Een heel leukker donker biertje met veel smaak aan. Echt een aanrader voor in de winter

Alengrin (2463) - BELGIUM - AUG 3, 2014
De Leite’s second, with yellowish white foam and deep mahogany colour, misty. Aroma of caramel, bayleaf, hazelnuts, figues, liquorice; taste soft dried fruitiness (dates, raisins), nutty maltiness with some caramel, rather flat carbonation, thinnish mouthfeel, mildly bitterish finish with a hint of coffee-liked roastedness. Not too impressive but a decent dubbel nonetheless.

bartlebier (1977) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2014
33cl Geers, bb? Slightly fizzy leather and maroni pour. Toasted caramel nose, with indistinct spice. Tastes less sugary sweet than expected, very much a modern day Belgian version of a Dunkel, with an expert balance of sweet, Belgian fresh hay and leafy hops and dried candy sugars. Somehow reminds me of refurbished old oak furniture.
