BelgianBeerGal (3500) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Bottle at cellar temperature. Poured a clear copper color with nice carbonation driving a small tan head. Flavor had earthy tones...dust? dry palate? A little alcohol, a little bitterness. nice but nothing amazing.

probstblueribbon (3394) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2007
UPDATED: APR 14, 2008 33 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served just above cellar temp. in a tulip glass.

App.: Medium copper, small light tan head, clear, some lacing. Aroma: Very sweet – plenty of candy sugar, stone fruits and dried fruits, a bit of chocolate, some alcohol and wood, a little yeasty; hints of “warm” spices – clove stands out; dry, dusty hops. Palate: Medium bodied, almost no carbonation, silky and smooth. Flav.: Brown sugar, burnt sugar, some stone fruit, burnt raisins (really), some yeast, a touch of wood and spice; definite bitterness to finish and a touch of alcohol.

Where’d that bitterness come from?? The nose gave NOTHING away. Doesn’t seem to fit, somehow...

janubio (563) - SPAIN - SEP 18, 2007
Amber colour, pours a reddish head that is not very big, but last for a while. Smell is sweet cherries, dark fruits, cinnamon, caramel, spicy. Dry flavor. Taste: Cherries, a hint of chocolate, floral, spicies and a bitter touch. Fruits, caramel. A good one, though I think something is missing, not sure what.

Bottle. Nose is very sweet with lots of fruit. Cherry, raspberry, and strawberry. Clear deep red with a thin head and active carbonation.Nice flavor, surprising bitterness. Balanced with a touch of sweetness at the open and finish. Nice body.

stdavid (6) - ITALY - SEP 5, 2007 does not count
Amber color with orange highlights, clear; nice head, good retention. Spicy and fruity smells, honey and yeast too. Warm and sweet, tastes of honey and candy sugar, dry fruits, alcohol too present, the finish is lightly bitter. Good carbonation, medium body, is too sweet and the alcohol is not well balanced but a good beer for being a Leffe!

tomer (2402) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - SEP 5, 2007
0.33L bottle. faint aromas of malt, small head, clear brown colour with red taints. Extremly bitter at first, but as the beer warms up, sweet flavours of caramel and stewed fruits appear. The finish is sour, short and not too appealing.

BeerBiker (1413) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2007
[Sampled in 2004.] Had loads of this beer with home from the bike tour in France. Very cheap in a sixpack. My second favorite from Leffe caused by the notes of bitterness, melonfruit, complexbodied, nutflavor, lots of ingredients and a great finish
