3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a red / brown / purple with a thin off white head. Aroma is floor polish, dust, spice, some dark fruits and screamed hotdog to me. Which isn’t a smell I would request a beer to taste of. Hmm, well it’s ok but needs more aroma of hotdog. Not going to happen. A slightly spicier, less metallic version of the brune. Average, which is an improvement for Leffe.

33cl bottle poured into a Chimay Trappist glass. Dark amber with one finger creamy off-white head. Aroma is barnyard. Flavor is the typical Leffe yeast and not much else. Medium body, medium carbonation. Medium-lasting finish, moderately bitter with some barnyard notes. Boring.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is getting big promotion all across Paris on billboards, so this winter at least it should be widely available in France. Nice dark amber colour with a foamy head. Soft cherry aromas buried in a nut and wood mix that emerges from mostly malt ingredients. Taste is a lot of mahogany and oak with an alcoholic and watery finish. Another miss by Leffe, this is okay but could be much better.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, ruby amber colour with a big and tanned foamy head. Sweet and slightly toasted malty aroma with bready and subtle fruity notes, as well as a spicy touch. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Malty taste with notes of caramel, bread, chestnuts and shy berry-fruity notes; sweet and slightly bitter nutty and slightly spicy finish. Not world-shaking but pretty drinkable. 15.XI.10
