3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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?

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells like stronger Leffe than normal. golden-brownish, looks like Leffe. Tastes like Leffe, but a little fruity and watery. Somehow it is wateryer than Leffe blonde. Overall, at 9% it’s a waste of my drinking time.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle) pours a clear deep golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of wheat, caramel, light cooked vegetables, floral hops and straw. flavour is mostly the same, very sweet, with lots of powdered sugar and alcohol in the finish. heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

One of the better from Leffe so far. Nice in look with a bit sourly taste conatining aromas of few yeast and some hops. Not that heavy for a 9 abv.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light milky dark brown colour with steady creamy head and smooth body. Nose of yeast. Taste of ripe yeast, dark nuts, malt and dark bread. It is really nice and I enjoyed it, but it had more of a German Hefeweizen-character than of a nice Belgian one, what I quite missed.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle @ Tolhuis ’t Veer, Schelle.
Fruity, straw, grass aroma.
Orangeblond, offwhite head. Lacing.
Fruits in the taste, some alcohol.
Bittersweet finish, some alcohol.
I enjoyed it, but since an appointment was advanced, I had to drink it too quick too rate/enjoy it fully.

Bottle 0,75L. Clear amber/orange colour with frothy off-white head, that goes into a nice crown. Aroma of roasted malts, dark fruits and dried fruits. Slighty fruity. Taste is somwhere between Leffe Blonde and Leffe Brune, light bitter and remarkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle@ Home from supermarket. Probabilmente la migliore Leffe sul mercato. Ha un bel profumo di frutta estiva (polpa d’anguria, melone) eun aroma deciso di miele dolce (acacia?). La schiuma è bianca cremosa. il colore sabbia intenso, quasi ruggine. Il gusto è più marcato sulla dolcezza del miele e sul caldo alcolico, comunque ben nascosto e integrato nella birra. Finale secco, vellutato.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg: højt skum! Duft og smak av grønne, syrlige epler med litt sødme i tillegg. Lett munnfølelse, og farlig lett å drikke for 9%. Men på ingen måte grensesprengende, der er mange lyse belgiere jeg foretrekker fremfor denne.
