A very well balanced leffe. The combination of fruits and malts is almost perfect. Very smooth and drinkable.

Draft from the Cobblestone (Nice place in Paris ON). Drank during the British Open which is always good. I like this beer but not quite as much as the draft blonde

The brown Leffe is malty yet fruity and is rich brown with not much head. One of my favourite beers and one I would recommend without any hesitation

Silverdragon (5) - Fredericia, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2008 does not count
Has a cloudy dark reddish brown colour with a small but creamy beige head. Aroma starts with that disgusting banana scent at the top, but as you drink you can feel the more pleasant notes of dark fruits like berries and plum, and a bit of toffee and spices. Flavor is mostly bitter and fruity, but the malt is also present. Smoothy and creamy texture, Fantastic beer.

Much more preferable to the blonde, a great dark body, nice lasting head. Light roasted taste with a chocolate feel. Fantastic beer.

Bottle brown, 330 ml
Appearance: Pours deep rubby red body colour, carbonation of the body is mild, head is slightly off white, almost cappuccino like in colour, foamy to frothy but not that big as in the previous one, quickly decreasing to small and than lasting for a long time.
Aroma: Burned malt, some very thin regular malty touch, burned sugar with very gentle aromatic, a bit flowery hoppy notes, a bit creamy and sweety, some weak aroma of red fruits, plum reminding some bottom fermented Dunkels or Dunkels Hefeweissbiers.
Flavour: Dominated by bitterness, in a quite high level becoming present on palate after the first sip. Strong roasted grains, coffee accents, ash pot and some flowery aromatic hoppy nose, slightly accidic at finish. Alcohol is well hidden and far a 6.5% it is present slightly at finish but all in all is well balanced. Finish duration is medium to long.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is a bit dry and generally smooth, carbonation on palate is medium, finish feel is a bit grainy and chalky, roasty.
