2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught: Almost no aroma - slight sour scent. Appearance is very nice in the glass - black with light tan coloured head. Flavour was weak - no bold flavours anywhere. Very watery. Kept trying to pick up on something interesting, but nothing happening here.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thick foamy chocalate tinged head. This had some deep ripe fruit tones in it, but I thought they were lost quickly. Tastes much better as it warms up and the sweetness does not take over completely. Also had some cookie/honey taste in it, not a very good description, but there was a good body to it. Needs much more complexity though. Problems with carbonation even on draught.

Being a dark brew man, and also a great fan of other Leffe brews, it came as a treat to sample this one off the tap. It has all the malty chocolate flavours you expect in a premium brune, and leaves you wanting another.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Like a yeasty pale beer. Like a bad triple with brown coloring agents. Not very traditional.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly sweet, yeasty aroma. Flavor is also fairly sweet with roasted malt. Smooth finish, but not as good as I expected.

This Leffe has the same nasty yeast aroma and flavour as the other Leffe beers. I cannot help it, but I think they're awful.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A little sweet, some perfume but fresh. An oily palate.
A nice surprise to me even if it's not my kinda beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2004 Bottled. Dark mahogany colour. Malty aroma with vague citric notes and also yeast. Lively mouthfeel. Tasty and full-bodied with yeast and fruit notes. Very well balanced but a bit undecisive. The flavours don't really come through, and the finish is a bit short.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught: This is a damn tasty beer. At first it tastes very malty and the after taste is oakish with a hint of roasted coffee. An enjoyable beer.
