Leffe 9° has been brewed following the tradition at the Leffe Abbey. It is a top-fermenting beer with a deep golden colour and an alcohol content of 9% abv. Its fullmouthed taste and rich aroma results in a characterfull beer. It is the ideal beer for a feeling of sheer voluptuousness.

Poured from 33cl bottle, thanks to a friend at AB/Inbev ( THANKS! ). Medium copper color, with fluffy, off white head, lingering a bit, into alot of lacing. Smell of malt/caramel. Tastes of raisins, malt, and spice, maybe a mix of cloves & ginger? This beer hides the ABV pretty well, there is a warm finish of alcohol, but finishes really clean, and dry. Damn good beer, not a session beer as others have mentioned, but, how many 9% ABV are? Just the ticket on a cold winter evening in St. Louis. Inbev, how about turning this brew loose stateside?

TimE (3577) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 8, 2015
sweet malty with some midly hop character. Basically a bigger, heavier version of the blonde. Slightly cloying. Not special IMO.

aleigator (340) - GERMANY - JAN 23, 2015
Has a reddish, amber color, with a perfect sized, froth head. Aromas are slightly spiced, reminding me instantly of a german Hefeweizen, with bready, dough yeast and banana - altough it tends to be a little bit sweeter. Drinks extremely smooth, due to its soft yeast foundation. Taste is between sweet honeyed malts and peppery spices. The banana from the nose is still there, but perfectly wrapped up by slightly hot spices, vanilla and honey. Has a perfect fitting, lively carbonation with a medium body. Finishes with a toffee, clove spiced sweetness, and some slightly biting peppers.
