Nice red shining color. Middle stable head. Smells very sweet with dark fruits. Taste is sweet with some bitterness in the end.

HomerJ79 (18) - Roma, ITALY - JAN 28, 2014
Reddish, slight brown, clear. Nice burnt candi, belgyness, meadowy florals. Light raisins, very nice, appealing, nose. Soft smooth body. Leffe signature yeast, good soft caramel, slight plummy. One of the most enjoyable leffes that I’ve had. Lots of flavour, without being too sticky.

Bamsen78 (2413) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear copper brown with airy but stable light beige head. Clear aroma of fruit, with notes of malt and caramel. Sweetish, fruity and caramellish flavour, with bitter, hoppy notes and malty touches. Discernible alcohol presence, esp. in the bitterness. A decent, drinkable BSA but nothing really extraordinary as such.

R2k2 (306) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2014
A somewhat, cloudy, dark ruby-colored beer with a firm, slightly brown layer of foam. It has a sweet fruity aroma, but you have to look for it. A complex, bittersweet taste, which slowly moves on into a slightly sour aftertaste. Een iets troebel, donker robijnkleurig bier met een stevige compacte lichtbruine kraag. Het aroma is iets zoet fruitig, maar je moet er even naar zoeken. Complexe bitterzoete smaak, dat langzaam overgaat naar een lichtzure nasmaak.

DomPiwa (30) - FRANCE - JAN 6, 2014
Pours a clear, deep golden amber with frothy head that is still persistant after a couple of minutes. Slightly fruity aroma which is also found on the palette. Subtle hints of dough and light spices. An enjoyable excursion into the world of Leffe,

Nel complesso una buona birra ma troppo dolce. Aroma e gusto sono corposi. Il retrogusto é veramente intenso.

beeebon (139) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Received as a gift from my parents as they travelled back from Germany. I have drank a lot of the Leffe Blonde and Brune which are both available in pretty much every supermarket here. However I have not seen this before so thought it would be an interesting one to try, It pours a red brown with a head which settles very quickly. The smell is like a mix of candyfloss, bread and coriander. The taste although sweet is a lot less sweet than you imagine from the smell, with some bitter sourness. The alcohol is masked quite well though you can tell you are drinking a strong beer. Overall I am happy I have tried and enjoyed this, but if I didn’t drink it again for a long time I wouldn’t feel too hard done by. Worth a taste anyway!

Erzengel (1912) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2013
Dieses Bier schäumt sehr stark - ist mir als 0,33 im 0,5l-Glas übergeschäumt... Sehr fruchtiger Antrunk, leicht süßlich nach Waldbeeren. Sehr süffig und weich. Zum Hauptteil hin etwas schärfer-süßlicher werdend. Der Nachgeschmack ist fruchtaromabetont (süßlich nach Waldbeeren) und eine ganz leichte herbe Note hält sich auf der Zunge! Ein sehr schönes Bier, wobei es mir doch ein Bißchen zu süß ist.
Test vom 12.2.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,12,11,12,11 - 11,30
