got this for 90 cents at a supermarket in amsterdam... looks just like the top of the line counterparts, very fruity aroma... taste the same but unfortunately the low alcohol affects it somewhat negatively.. still good beer though

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2008 Garrafa. Tomada em diversos momentos na Europa, em 2004, 2006 e 2007. Considero a Leffe minha bebida padrão em terras européias. No Brasil tomada em janeiro de 2008, importada pela Ambev. Coloração avermelhada, creme bege volumoso, consistente e persistente, deixando marcas nas laterais da taça. Notas de café, torrefação, fermento e licor. Álcool imperceptível. Leve e longo amargor no final. Eis uma brune com excelente drinkability e qualidade.

ChrisTurner (207) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2007
Bottle -- Pours a deep red-brown with quitew active carbonation and a medium to large beige head that lasts and lasts. Terrific lacing. Aroma is rich with lots of malt and caramel. Flavour is also rich with sweet malt, caramel and dried fruit with a subtle touch of alcohol that adds a vaguely electric feel in the mouth. Some bitterness right at the end. A little watery perhaps, but it almost seems disrepectful to pont that out. Beautifully balanced and an utter delight.

jimhilt (2465) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 24, 2007
From my notes 5/31/2007, pours a two-finger off-white head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Deep mahogany color. Malty nose. Good carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Flavor is balanced with hints of caramel, clean finish. Served in 330ml tulip glass, part of meal at La Belle Epoque Restaurant Brussels, Belgium.

Seeing these all over Brussels and never here I had to pick one up. Very nice beer, I enjoy the regular Leffe, but this stands far above it in my opinion. Rich caramel and chocolate notes balanced out by a crisp and spicy finish. Slightly peppery in the finish, dry and earthy hop presence.

Better on draft than bottled version doubt about that... Brown sugar, very light hop flavor and a shy alcohol taste. For what’s it worth (2,45$ a bottle at the LCBO), it’s a deal
