donniemillan (36) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 29, 2014
The classic dark fruit aroma that youd expect, lacking a decent head though. The palate is short and alcohol comes through, just not as rich or indulgent as other Belgian ales.

oliodnb (277) - ITALY - MAY 21, 2014
Dark reddish amber, white head. Smells of sweet malts, caramel, some molasses and light spices. Similar taste with some sweet berries notes and a nice honey-like sweetness. No noticeable hops.

slawek (130) - Krakw, POLAND - MAY 19, 2014
Copper, clear body with big head, quickly reducing to small ring. Nice aroma of peach, bread with some caramel and slight alcohol. Flavors: alcohol with some caramel, dark fruits (like fresh plum) and breadiness. High carbonation. Good beer, but too alcoholic. Alcohol overwhelms other flavors, it should be present in such beer, but not so intense. Anyway it is a very good beer.

ABT_S54 (145) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2014
33cl bottle poured in a Struise glass. Pours a dark reddish amber colour with quite a long lasting white head. Taste is typical Leffe with the same resin note that is present in both the Brune and Noel. Overall quite nice and the more you have the better it gets. I would say more dark spices and maybe a portlike quality as the temperature increases. I would serve this slightly warmer than the recommendation of the brewery.

ElManana (207) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2014
Sweet and sour taste, with a note of tropical fruits and spices, especially banana. Finishes off rather flat. Pretty well balanced, with no strong alcohol tang, though this is a fairly strong ale. A pleasant beer. The better Leffe actually.

Rotaldinho (77) - Paris, FRANCE - MAY 16, 2014
Rather correct beer, strong, dry and fruity. To test without any hesitations.

miquelcrush (1362) - Granollers, SPAIN - MAY 15, 2014
Clssica Leffe, una cervesa que mai falla, molt dola i agradable. Clsica Leffe, una cerveza que nunca falla, muy dulce y agradable.

mmahut (955) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 12, 2014
Darker ruby body with low white head. Aroma is spicy, has notes of forest fruits, alcohol is evident even with the low content. Taste has high caramel, toffee like, sweetness, earthy spicy bitterness, notes of cinnamon. Body is full, medium carbonation.

Burgers (314) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 9, 2014
The aroma is very thin resin. Taste thinly sweet. Aroma dull honey. Not for me.
