4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Heavy malty, roasted, dark bread and sweet. Very dark red, nearly no head at all! The flavor is first sweet, then a hint of bitterness comes along the way but disappears very fast in the short duration. On the palate the beer is dry and watery at the same time (but no negative washiness). Light to medium body, lively carbonation. Very nice one, have to get me a few more...

I have realized that I am a big fan of Dubbels. This tasty sweet brew was a very smooth and enjoyable. I would drink one of these with just about any meal.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft Blackfriars. Drak brown in colour with a fluffy beige head. Aroma- dark fruits, caramle malts. Rich flavour of caramle malts, mollasses, rasins and dark plummy fruits with a prolonged sweet maltyness. This is balanced very well with spicy yeasty dry finish. Better on draft than bottled version.

Huge head, lasted until the end of the glass. Strong nutty aroma. Nutty, malty, creamy smooth flavor with indistinguishable fruits. Great brown.
