mike_77 (4567) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2008
Pale red brown colour with thin but long lasting head. Aroma is rich & fruity with a little maltiness coming through too. This is very smooth and silky beer with flavours of cranberries and other red fruits leading to a lightly sweet finish.

downender (7373) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2007
330ml bottle. Amber coloured with a moderate, off-white head. Sweet aroma with some grain and spice. Flavour also had plenty of sweet malt and spice, with some orange peel and a warming alcohol finish. Good.

scanovajr (663) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - DEC 27, 2007
Bottled @ Tortula, Sao PAulo, Brazil. A clear amber beer with a big beige head. Aroma is sweety, fruity and a bit flowery. Taste is sweety and malty, notes of caramel. Some vinous and bitterness in the end

thebeertourist (5157) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2007
From bottle at Brussels Airport. Clear copper with a medium off-white head. Freash bready malt aroma. Rather sweet with bitternessonly kicking in to a modest extent. Modest rye bread flavours. Not the sexiest beer around, but one of the better Leffes.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2007
Mahogany, nice head and lace. The aroma has notes of coriander and the mouthfeel is smooth. The flavour is sweetish but nicely balanced by spices. It’s rather complex and the finish has a nice citrussy bitterness.

madquacker (1085) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - NOV 30, 2007
Not as good as the Brune or Blonde. Nice but quickly disappearing head. Beautiful red copper colour but overly sweet and cloying.

Fukito (991) - Santiago, CHILE - NOV 23, 2007
Bottle, november 07. Clear, copper color with a thick, dense white head. Fruity, grainy flavor with some phenollic traces and an alcoholic burnt. Rather artificial and with some oxidation notes. Medium to full mouthfeel, rather syrupy and dull. Fruity aroma with some plums. Rather dull strong ale.

sssamcz (6) - Berkhamsted, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2007 does not count
Strongly flavoured beer, a hint of cloves to it. Despite the high alcohol content I find it more drinkable than blond. Lovely stuff...

LordCrabapple (109) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2007
This is a splendid foreign beer. Not too heavy, a touch sweet. Some bitterness. Very pleasurable to drink. What we might call a barley wine. I simply cannot fault this drink. Cheerio!
