Panzerfaust (613) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAY 6, 2007
Bottled at Sicosis Pours a beautiful, clear dark ruby/brown color. Head is medium, white and creamy. It leaves a gorgeous lacing. Aroma is strong with a malty/yeasty character with lots of fruity smells. There are notes of berries, chestnuts, peanut butter, plums and a lot of caramel. Well balanced and interesting. Flavor is bittersweet, fantastic, nutty and caramelly hints and some light herbal, grassy touches complemented by a nice alcoholic kick. Not extreme but very classy. Body is medium with an oily texture. Carbonation is low which leaves space for the flavors to shine. Nice, mildly alcoholic finish. The best Leffe i’ve tasted.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle. Brownish-yellow colour with a short lasting bubbling off-white head. Sweet fruity-sour aroma. Sweet and fruity flavour with some bitterness to it. Good mouthfeel! Good warming and fruity brew.

ChrisThomson (522) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2007
(DTW Luzern 07) Ok, but aftertaste ruins this one. Pours nice copper-brown with minimal head. Taste of fruits and spices with nice maltiness, but has a sharp bitter aftertaste that lingers too much.

Skinnyviking (7767) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle. High white creamy lasting head. Clear copper body. Sweet aroma of berries and sugar. Alcohol dominates the flavor of barley malt caramel and some hops bitterness with a sharp edge. Nice and long bitter aftertaste.

jhwarfield (125) - USA - APR 1, 2007
Bottle. London. Pours brown-red with white generous head that disipates quickly. No great tastes of either hops or caramel, but a strong alcohol body that you can feel on your breath as if it had its own presence.

Hamirubi (311) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAR 19, 2007
More brown than amber coloured, but a nice appearance. This Leffe can’t top the brown or blond version, but has a pleasant taste.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2008 Some cherries some roast and the best of the Leffe beers that I have had. Had this at a great cafe in Hasselt, Hemelrijk. Page 279 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide only 339 out of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - MAR 2, 2007
One of the rarest of the Leffe, other than 9 degrees because its so new. Very unique and has a color that is a dark amber. Head is thick but fades away. Aroma is nice and spicy and the beer drinks very smooth and you enjoy sipping it slowly. Very nice

Wonderful amber color, dense cream… Aftertaste to kill any one of delirium. Persistent and evidence of red fruits, that I love.............................................. Cor de âmbar maravilhosa, creme denso... Retrogosto de matar qualquer um de delírio. Persistente e evidência de frutas vermelhas, que eu amo.
