3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A deep red beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of nuts, malt, caramel, and some yeast lending it a bit of fruit. The flavor is very sweet with notes of caramel, malt, nuts, bread, and a bit of metal, leading to a dry metallic and nutty finish. Thanks Papsoe for this beer.

The bottle looks really good, as well as the beer in the glass. Starts malty, modest spicy with notes of cinnamon. Finish much milder, only modest malty, a bit metallically. Finish should be more intense. So only average!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Dark red with laced white head. Nose and flavour of dried fruit, caramel and alcohol. A tinny finish that lingers. It’s rough all round. I didn’t expect much from this one.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Redbrown to brown coloured, dense, off white head. Fruity aroma, also somewhat fruity taste Furthermore it’s a bit watery. Fizzling, with a medium finish. Not that special.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a clear deep amber with a neat off-white head leaving a neat lacework. The yeasty aroma has Leffe writen all over it. Medium body, sweet dried fruit and a little fruit, but this is entirely a yeast job. No real evident spices and a rather subdued bitterness. No yeast sediment in Leffe’s anymore? Damm, it must’ve been too long since I last had one. 080210

bought in Brugge and drank back in home. Very dark ruby color with a tan head that dismish quickly. Aroma is barley malt with red fruit notes, flavor is quite bitter and spicy with a sweet finish not too long. Good drinkability.

While the aroma’s where good, the taste was some less. Seems Leffe just really wanted to have a Christmas-beer, maybe they had better wait some more before selling it.
