wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2008
Bottle, Cafe Leffe, Strasbourg. I seem to recall really liking this about 5 years ago, but am now really struggling to see why as this was very undwerwhelming. Pured a reddy brown with a medium off white head. Malty aroma with some fruit and spice. Sweet and malty flavour. Really very average. Thought this had much more character, but it wasn’t evident on this occasion.

TrappistNr8 (15) - Goes, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2008
(bottle) red-brown-like colour, Fruity aroma, caramel, a bit of spice. I find the taste a little overdone with fruitiness and a little too sweetened, but I’ll sure try it again from time to time

Borresteijn (6359) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2008
Bottle @ Café Gollem. Amber colour, white head. Malty aroma, caramel, fruits, spice. Flavour is malty sweet, fruity, a bit spicey. Like a strong version of Palm Speciale. Not my style, too many "amber" flavours.

Pours a reddish brown and has a spicy yeastiness. Above average mouthfeel. Satisfying though not exceptional Belgian.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2008
330 ml bottle, bought in shop in Oostende. Brown color, nice off-white head. Aroma is malty with a kind of «oldness», some spices. Flavor is sweet malt and some spices, rustic sourness and fruit. Dry finish. Strange, but interesting beer.

REDBOSOX (80) - Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 5, 2008
I really like this beer! It’s a beautiful brownish red with lesser head than most Leffe beers. It’s surprisingly smooth for an 8.2% beer. It’s got a good fruity flavor with a nice light mix of caramel. It has a good finish to me. Overall, a very impressive beer. Not a surprise for a Leffe beer.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2008
Pours a clear reddish brown color with a thick white head. Aroma of apples with some candy. Interesting flavor of apples with a strong presence of candy, it’s sweet from the middle to the end. The body is light with a liquorous texture and moderate carbonation. Interesting, I have fond memories of drinking this some years ago, I’m glad to find I can still find pleasure in drinking it.
