reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Have had this many times but never bothered rating it. This bottle’s from Sainsbury’s. Deep amber with a small off white head. Alcohol is apparent in the nose along with hints of banana, toffee and apples. Spicy taste to match with a salty, bitter edge. Medium bodied and a little flat. Probably my favorite Leffe to date but still a few to go...

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2006
Bottle (330ml). At Saint Alexandre Pub, Québec City. Poured into a Leff goblet, deep slightly hazy chestnut coloured with a small off-white head. Sharply bitter yeast and spice aroma with brown sugar malt, a tang of sourness on warming. Tasted of raisins and apples, sweet spice and sharp bitter yeast, a backbone of soft caramel malt - very pleasing blended/balanced finish after an initial hit of spicy bitterness. Average body, slick and slightly syrupy mouthfeel, very good carbonation and a slight bitter aftertaste - a very nice sipper, I enjoyed it as much or more than the Leffe Brune or Blond - very restrained and dignified.

Nicko (207) - Ashfield, AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2006
Brownish almost-purple appearance, big initial frothy head, which quickly dissipates. After pizza smells a bit like sour milk but floral. Toffee caramel with a bitter aftertaste. Palate a bit thin.

Pours brownish amber with a mostly receding wispy off white head. Aroma of cotton candy, toffee, fruity esters, and slightly medicinal phenols. Taste is sweet and fruity, toffee, plums, and pepper. Mouthfeel is medium, slightly sticky with lush carbonation.

mtdshn (173) - Moline, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2006
Bottle. Pours a nice clear black tea brown with a good sized light brown head. Not much in way of aroma but has a black tea, sugar, yeast, with an overall bitterness. Has some red wine character to it as an aftertaste.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2006
Amber with a distinct pinkish tinge. Large frothy white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with some yeast. Taste is alcoholic, sweet and fruity. A slight bitter aftertaste. Found it a bit too fizzy.

yngwie (15191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2006
Bottled. Clear, brown, with an off-white head. The aroma has tobacco, dried fruits, yeast, candisugar, caramel and spices. Sweet, malty flavor with dried fruits and alcohol. Medium body and a finish with alcohol, bitterness and dried fruits. The aroma promises a lot, but the flavor, body and finish don’t live up to it. (060812)
