Tasted it on bottle as well as on tap. As the most leffe beers from inbev not very tastefull and almost no aftertaste. Not worth trying again

Dark brown wth off-white head fruit and has some taste of sweet bubbel gum and banana sweet flavor,but still a nice beer.

StueyD (1566) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2007
A ruby red to brown coloured beer with a weak white head. A sour fruit nose and a hint of malt. The taste is sour and fruity, raspberries and plums, then a sweet malt flavour that lasts to a smooth, but slightly sour finish. (Bottle - courtesy of Mark @ The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2007
Clear dark brown with an off-white head. Very weak fruity aroma, touch of metal and bland toffee. Flavour continues along the same basic lines, little roast, toffee and plummy fruitiness. Mild bitterness. Clean finish. OK

BeerBiker (1414) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 29, 2007
[Swallowed a lot to Kurts phd party.] Chosed this beer instead of all the redwine to the italian food, and it did it well. The fruity, brown-tasting beer with all the notes of nuts, sweetness, spices and yeast outmatched the redwine.

taunusmies (350) - FINLAND - APR 26, 2007
Pours dark copper brown with a medium off-white head. Malty, fruity and a bit yeasty aroma. Quite sweet but not over-sweet though, has some nice bitterness for balancing.

agl108 (1051) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2007
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.
