Bottle. Dark amber body with low carbonation and a lasting off-white foamy head. Noce malty/hoppy aroma with yeasty and flowery notes. Alcohol is well hidden. Smooth and well balanced taste that carries yeasty, fruity, and caramel hints. Ends with a good bittersweet finish. Very enjoyable.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2007 33cl bottle, purchased at a grocery store in Antwerp
Clear brownish-red color with a tan head. A little sweetness, some cherries and brown sugar and maple flavors. Simple tasting, one dimensional and uninspiring. Lacking the requisite spiciness and yeast (totally filtered). Passable.

slightly brownish head, that lets a nice film on the beer
beautyfull chestnut-like color
smells spicy,darkly malty,some bergamot smell
malty,bitter-sweet taste,bergamot taste,even something meat-extract-like is there,hops,some dried bananas
aftertaste first,malty,bitter-sweet but then fruity too,some alcohol
seems less alcoholic than it is.
the maltyness is a hiddeng a bit the fruity flavours,but by longer tasting they are there,so don’t drink that beer too fast

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 33cl. Beautiful red beer with a nice white head. Aroma isn’t strong, but it has some fruits and a strong yeastiness. Flavour is quite good, malty and fruity. Alcohol is somewhat apparent, but not overwhelming. Pronounced bitterness in the finish. Probably the best of the Leffe family.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark amber body; average, mostly lasting, light brown head with good lacing; small bubbles of medium density.
Moderately malty aroma with light notes of hops; spicy (cloves) notes together with caramel, prunev and a clearly distinguishable alcoholic background.
Flavour is moderately bitter, notes of prunes and caramel.
Body is medium with an oily texture; soft carbonation and moderte alcoholic feeling at the end.
Good beer, very similar to Leffe Vieille Cuvee, but less complex and with a too strong alcoholic background.
