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.

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.

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.

[1200-20080305] Tap. Mild grains aroma, not much else. Clear, dark brown amber body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Mildly toasted grains flavour has sweet boozy caramel hints. Medium body has a bit of an astringent tang. Not particularly assertive but drinkable and ’radiant’ enough to mark my latest milestone as well as end a superb tour of the country! I look forward to visiting la Belgique again some day...
