Color is deep ruby brown. Pours with lacy, foamy but vanishing head. Aroma is malty, yeasty, fruity. Mild, sweet malty flavor is syrupy and metallic with sweet yeasty finishing. Palate is medium-bodied and quite much, foamy carbonated.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2013 Draft at the Brickskeller, D.C. Very cloudy pour, with a surprising degree of carbonation. Nothing oily about the mouthfeel, but rather a crisp and effervescent body. Very drinkable, modestly fruity, but not terrifically distinctive.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Deep ruby/brown in colour with lively tan head. Rich, fruity, chocolate malt aroma with orange in the background. Flavour is more chocolate leading to a nice, surprising dry finish. Rich body. Wonderfully balanced beer.

Peut etre meilleur que la blonde. Belle couleur brune, belle mousse. Un peu plus sucré que la blonde, tres fort...

Deep brown beer with light head. Malty start leads to caramel/raisins and leathery finish. A decent dark abbey.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from belgianbeergal, thanks! we did tasting of 4 diff Leffe beers. The blonde is the best IMO. this one poured a brown color with a decent sized head. Aroma was simply yeast and raisins. Flavor was muted, I expected more. Slightly sweet and has flavors of raisins and vanilla. I wish it had a bit more oomph.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is of banana, oranges and raisins.
Taste is a nice mixed fruits combo that goes down with a nice alcohol warmth.
Lies good in the mouth en goes down well any time.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Creme denso e persistente. Coloração avermelhada bem escura. No aroma e sabor, muito malte torrado, café, chocolate, fermento de pão, biscoito... O final é longo e agradavelmente amargo. Não deixe de experimentar.
