jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - FEB 26, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2008 Existem certas cervejas que nos remetem a certos lugares ou situações. A Leffe Radieuse pra mim é sinônimo de Roma, Trastevere, Campo di Fiori, Aristocampo, porchetta e felicidade. Muita felicidade... Tomada a princípio na Suíça, depois na Itália, essa breja pode agora ser degustada em Terra Brasilis, graças às importadoras. Coloração avermelhada, translúcida, com um creme bege escuro de excelente formação e longa duração, deixando uma camada perene e marcas nas laterais da taça. A primeira impressão é de lúpulo e malte, muito bem equilibrados. Após, cravo. Muito cravo! Em algum lugar aparecem frutas vermelhas, possivelmente cereja. Não senti o coentro presente na fórmula. Há um leve adocicado, assim como um suave amargor. O álcool é presente, mas na medida. A carbonatação é média. A combinação disso tudo, ao meu ver, é perfeita. Excelente retrogosto e drinkability. Grande breja! Se você cruzar com ela, nem pense em não experimentá-la...

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2007
Big offwhite shiny head. Deep red body. Acidic fruity licorice aroma. Deep roasty lightly acidic taste with notes of wood and cinnamon. Dry, spicy, lightly metallic aftertaste. Some dustiness in aftertaste mouthfeel. A sharp, bitter quality in the mouth grows stronger as you drink. Not bad, has character. (0.33l bottle.)

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 22, 2007
Bottle, a deep brown colour with just a bit of carbonation and think bubbly beige head. A fruity caramal aroma. Very sweet, which is countered a little further in the swallow by some carbonation and acidic sourness. Syrupy toffee flavours, with a strong woody alcoholic touch, akin to whiskey. Could have got a higher rating, but I just can’t get past that acidity.

HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2007
A potent little number. A dark ruby colour - sweet and fruity in taste. Quite thin, but very palatable. Yes, I like it!
