Cantabrian (823) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle, from Victoria Wines in Nadi, Fiji. The beer is translucent copper with a very persistent, dense, off-white head. Aromas of raspberries, apple juice and vanilla. Flavour goes through the same ingredient, but also with cloves, banana and cinnamon. Rather dry finish. The palate is sticky, leaving that weird spinach velvety sensation on the tongue.

330ml bottle. BB 24/10/15. Pours bright, amber colour with a large, dense off white head. Aroma of coriander, roasted malt, plums, cherries, banana and citrus. There’s a bit going on here. Medium sweet, malty taste, quite reminiscent of a Scotch Whisky. Full body and luscious texture with a gently warming alcohol sensation. Medium dry finish.

westler (69) - Stuttgart, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2014
Nice reddish amber colour. Fruity and malty nose with some coriander notes. Full mouth, solid malt and a hint of sourness. Pleasant lack of sweetness. Nice, round, bitter finish.

Hazel delicious sweet and strong Belgian. Lovely balanced flavors of dark fruits. Beautiful foam.

A cloudy amber color. This is quite nice. Not that sweet in relation to many Belgian strings. It has a nice zip and just a hint of alcohol. I really like this.

Una belgian strong ale abbastanza gradevole, ma meno male che l’ho assaggiata in un fromato da 33 cl, perché ha un dolce che, a lungo andare, stava diventando stucchevole. Se siete appassionati delle belgian strong ale, cercate altro.

adster (345) - HUNGARY - JUN 21, 2014
Habja krémes és hosszan megmaradó, egy fél centiméter vastag réteg szinte a végsőkig kitart. Aszalt gyümölcsös, élesztős illata van, ízében azonban ezeknél hangsúlyosabban van jelen egy könnyed kesernyésség némi fűszerességgel. Az alkohol már az elején tiszteletét teszi egy kellemesen melengető hatást kiváltva. Idővel a komló visszahúzódik, és csaknem felülkerekednek benne az édeskés ízjegyek. Egyébiránt a megszokott belga ale karakter érvényesül, külön kiemelni nem igazán tudnék semmit.

mcberko (6456) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle at Donald’s Pub in Angers, pours a hazy amber with a small beige head. Nose brings out notes of banana, Belgian yeast, and clove - fairly complex aromatics. Flavour matches accordingly, with some Belgian spices, clove, a little banana, some other fruity esters, and Belgian yeast. Very well-balanced - definitely the best Leffe product. Very good stuff.
