Amber brown with off white head. Grassy nose with some nuttiness. Very rich and dark with nuts and molasses as primary flavors followed by a faint cherry note. Awesome!

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2005
Bottle: Clear brown with a creamy textured greyish head. Aromas of whraty banana and cloves with dried herbs (rosemary) and spicy overtones. Some crystal sweetness. Smells thick and warm. Caramel and heady spices combine for a warming and complex experience in the mouth. Again the dried herbs emerge, filled out by a mid-palate sweetness. Nice.

zathrus13 (1716) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Thanks to pineypower for this bottle. Pours a deep amber/copper color, with a tan head. Aromas are sweet malt, brown sugar, with some yeast and spice, too. Flavor is spice, brown sugar, and a little bit fruity. Very nice, but a bit too sweet.

Paskal (146) - La Prairie, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2005
Bière aux arômes d’épices de couleur brune et possédant un généreux collet blanc, la Leffe Radieuse nous présente un goût fort, un peu sucré au début mais avec une finale amer. Bonne Bière équilibrée rappelant le sirop de grand-mère. A brown Belgisch beer with multiple spices aromas and possessing a generous white foam collar, Leffe Radieuse presents a strong taste, a bit sweet at first but then sour. A good balanced beer remembering me my grandmother’s syrup.

TomDecapolis (4477) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Poured from the bottle with a nice off white head that laced the glass. The body was amber and the aroma...you got it, it’s a Leffe. Still can’t really pinpoint exactly what the aroma and flavor of a Leffe is, but it is there in all the ones I tried (Brune, Tripel, Blonde and now this). Slight cherry in the aroma with a sweetness in the flavor that helped set it apart from the other Leffe’s. A slight alcohol taste and burn.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2005
a sim rate: The aroma is everything with this beer, and its perfumey scent makes each sip taste very sugary and sweet. A great, almost fruity, aftertaste. In my opnion, it’s the best Leffe beer!

bkurtz (791) - PERU - MAY 27, 2005
Poured a beautiful dark amber with tiny bubbles of carbonation and creamy head with lacing. Slightly sweet with fruit tones. Well balanced malt and yeast flavor. A tasty, velvety smooth beer.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2005
This pours a deep copper color with a tall, fizzy tan head. The aroma is delicate, light fruits and some malt sweetness. The hardy ABV is well-hidden, both in aroma and taste. It’s smooth to drink, a spicy cherry flavor with solid malts and some real yeasty fruitiness. Dry finish. Tasty and warming.
