On draft at Zeno’s, Penn State. Poured deep mahogany with thin khaki head. Terrific lacing. Very sweet sugary taste with sweet malts.

RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2007
Bottle from LCBO. Poured dark brown with a frothy beige head. Smell was fairly sweet and reminiscent of toffee. Flavour was tart with hints of brown sugar, sour plums, and what I imagine to be candied apple gone bad. Not impressed with this one.

PeterA (340) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 24, 2007
I was getting grape and sugars from the aroma. The color was a medium brown with hints of red and a tan head. The flavor was of caramel covered fruit. The mouthfeel was sticky from the sugar, with a bit of alcohol burn. Not bad.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 24, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 330 ml bottle. Beautiful, thick tanned head. Clear, plain brown body with a ruby glow. Fine lacework. Medium sweet malts in the aroma. Fresh and acidulous fruit scents, notes of yeast and spices. Taste is sweeitish malts, caramel, roast and pepper, well balanced with a proper hopbitterness. Good body. Slight bitter and coffee-ish end. A lot more power and character in this one than the Blond. Very nice.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - APR 23, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2008 Bottled 33cl. Red-brown beer with a nice head. Fruity aromas.. Apples, plums, caramel, overripe bananas. Sweet, hints of licorice in the taste, plums, some elements of cherry, butterscotsch, maybe some slightly hay-like aromas... Some anise, reminds me of a bit of "Pastis". Extremly yeasty, somewhat not that enjoyable finish with hints of licorice and apple. Not that terribly pleasant. 6/3/5/3/11. Rerate: Overly sweet with notes of candy, burnt plastic, coffee, banana and marshmallows. Poor taste. Good yeasty peppery finish, though rather on the sweet side. 5/3/5/2/10

Served in my Leffe Glass, it pours a brown colour with redish reflections, a very good brownish head that last for a while and leaves a good lace. Just as Leffe blonde, I think this beer is not what it used to be, but it’s still a nice one. Smell is not as strong as it used to be, but it has hints of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Maybe a bit of bay leaf? and some apple. Flavour continues developing as long as drink, it seems to expand, taste of chocolate, some vanilla, coffee and raisins. Good, but I missed the old one.

Diablo9845 (62) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2007
On tap at Chaucers. Nice darker beer with a sweet smell. A sweet, somewhat fruity taste with a hint of caramel. I liked this beer more than the blonde IMO, and I think it gave more flavour and a nicer aroma. Enjoyable and easy to drink.

Veeve (312) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 17, 2007
on tap at Eulogy Belgian Tavern in Philly. dark brown-ruby body, thick tan head. I prefer the blonde but I’m pretty sure thats just my personal style preference. smells of dried fruit, coffee and yeast. tastes of light coffee, caramel with lots of chewy fruits and yeast. dates, grapes, plum and ALCOHOL. also some chocolate at finish with yeast aftertastes.

A little like an English brown ale in its nut and caramel sweetness, but with the same spiciness as Leffe Blond - for a second I thought I was drinking the same beer. Sweet spicy aroma, nice maltiness, medium body. Very very nice, if a bit too sweet to drink in bulk - it hides the alcohol a little too well....
