Bottle. Aroma is quite much coriander, some cherry, caramel, alcohol. Light bitterness, not sweet. Lively carbonation. Typical Belgian in taste, although alcohol in evident.

Bijl (227) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2016
Donkerrood amber van kleur, crème kleurige foamy schuimkraag met groffe bellen en helder in het glas. Deze blijft mooi lang. Aroma: Karamel, iets gerookt...lijkt wel de geur van spek, donker fruit, koriander en iets kruidige hops. Smaak: Tikje Citrus zuur, karamel, iets netelig / kruidig, donker fruit, iets rokerig / hartig en wat Belgische gist. Redelijk wat Koolzuur, Redelijke body, zacht en romig mondgevoel, prikkeling en iets alcohol warmte. Afdronk is redelijk lang iets droog en een tikje bitter. Deze is om rustig te drinken.

wojownik17 (271) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 17, 2016
Butelka 330 ml. Gorsze Leffe niż klasyk - blonde. Kolor brunatno-bursztynowy. Piania drobnobąbelkowa, przeciętnej wysokości, w miarę szybko opada. Lekko mętne, wysokie nasycenie CO2. Zapach pikantny, ostry, w smaku nieco łagodniejsze, acz gorzkawe. Świetna goryczka na finiszu.

En boca malta maltoso caramelo moderado-moderado alto, lúpulo floral-especiado moderado, fenoles pimienta blanca, pimienta negra, clavo de olor, umami, coriandro, lúpulo de amargor bajo-nulo. Final maltoso-alcohólico prolongado con cuerpo pleno y carbonatación regular.

Zilb (172) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - JUL 11, 2016
Bière rousse/ruby avec gros col de mousse à grosse bulles. Forte carbonation. Arôme de malt grillé, et houblons légers (?). Forte en alcool et ça se sent ! Malt toasté (un peu trop) et houblons qui donne un goût hasardeux je trouve.

SamuPadania (6) - Cologno Monzese, ITALY - JUL 11, 2016 does not count
Discreta birra, abbastanza amara e con un gusto fruttato. Alla vista di colore rosso-ambrato, il gusto è deciso con un retrogusto di caramello.

Wojo21 (225) - Pelplin, POLAND - JUL 10, 2016
Aromaty typowo belgijskie, goździki, owoce, a na dodatek guma balonowa. Barwa rubinowa, zamglona, piana obfita. W smaku słodkie, ziołowe, owocowe, karmelowe. Alkohol wyczuwalny ale nie nachalny, rozgrzewajace.

arsol (986) - NORWAY - JUL 1, 2016
Rødbrun farge med lys beige skum. Klar. Lukter søte bær, malt, karamell. Medium fylde. Smaker litt pepper samtidig litt sødme. Avslutningen preges av krydder og litt alkoholvarme.

Ardel1991 (130) - - JUN 28, 2016
Rubinowe ze średnią pianą. Mocno alkoholowe, rozgrzewające. Goryczka umiarkowana. Wyczuwalne nuty belgijskie ale niezbyt intensywne.

Cristobal37 (795) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 25, 2016
Huge fluffy head ruby gold. Medicinal herbs, yeasty sweetness, pepper. Light cherry in the finish but really it’s the herbs and yeast together. Not sure about the flavor, reminds me of bitter cough syrup. Certainly not your average Belgian amber beer, but not for me.
