tom10101 (4908) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle (330 ml) at home. Clear amber with a medium off-white head, moderate retention, leaving some lacing. Aroma is of candi sugar, spices (coriander, cinnamon), caramel and raisins. Taste is not very sweet and is quite dusty with spices again (coriander, cinnamon), earthy spiciness, light fruitiness and mild bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Dust and dirt finish. Not the worst Leffe, but far from the best BSA. The dirty/dusty presence is a bit annoying.

Gurthnar (4553) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 6, 2016
Bottle from Drinkshop. The key thing in this beer is balance. It has rich malty profile with caramel and candyish elements, also lots of estery flavours, lightly spicy. But all in an exquisite balance that makes the beer easily drinkable despite the ABV - which is hidden very well.

Reddish brown color, average sized tan head. Aroma of malts, dried fruits, kinda dull, caramel, honey. Taste of malts, red fruits, chocolate, spices. Not overly sweet, dry and alcohol is nowhere to be found. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Good.

Bottle 0.33l. Clear dark amber liquid with peachy head. Fruity smell. Medium body, medium to light carbonation. Fruity taste, sweet but not too sweet. Could taste some alcohol in it. Taste of melon in the finish.

tbonde (289) - DENMARK - DEC 11, 2015
33 cl bottle@Belge bar Brussels Airport in Leffe goblet@approx 7 degrees C. Pours reddish tea-brown with off-white head with sufficient retention and some lacing. Aroma of malt, yeast, brown sugar and a little indistinguishable spice. Generous malt and hop, dried fruit, cane sugar, pepper and spices, finely balanced between the sweet and the dry. Aftertaste slightly dry with a good hoppy bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Very well balanced and every mouthful a pleasure. Beats the standrard Leffes by a mile.....

RickTheRick (882) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2015
Une bière ambrée assez claire est surmontée d’une mousse de consistance moyenne. Le bouquet est constitué d’éléments rappelant le sucre d’orge et la banane. Aucune trace de houblon fumé tel q’indiqué sur la bouteille. Même chose en bouche. Bref, je vais cesser d’élaborer sur cette bière, ce n’est juste pas bon.

rodenbach99 (4019) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2015
Bouteille de 33cl. Bue en Belgique en 1994-5 et aujourd’hui à Longueuil. Une superbe robe cuivrée avec une mousse beige collante et rocailleuse. Un nez de chocolat, noix, épices. Une bouche ronde, crémeuse avec des saveurs évasives de noix et de chocolat. Facile à boire, réussi.

Nogal een speciale Leffe smaak, een goede kleur, zeer traag te drinken om van te genieten.
