(Bottle, BB 09/03/08) Pours a burgundy body with a spare beige head. Aroma of raisins, vinous, caramel, and biscuit. Flavor of dark fruit, caramel, and light tobacco with a dry finish.

stdavid (6) - ITALY - SEP 5, 2007 does not count
Amber color with orange highlights, clear; nice head, good retention. Spicy and fruity smells, honey and yeast too. Warm and sweet, tastes of honey and candy sugar, dry fruits, alcohol too present, the finish is lightly bitter. Good carbonation, medium body, is too sweet and the alcohol is not well balanced but a good beer for being a Leffe!

tomer (2523) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - SEP 5, 2007
0.33L bottle. faint aromas of malt, small head, clear brown colour with red taints. Extremly bitter at first, but as the beer warms up, sweet flavours of caramel and stewed fruits appear. The finish is sour, short and not too appealing.

BeerBiker (1413) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2007
[Sampled in 2004.] Had loads of this beer with home from the bike tour in France. Very cheap in a sixpack. My second favorite from Leffe caused by the notes of bitterness, melonfruit, complexbodied, nutflavor, lots of ingredients and a great finish

Tranquillity (1641) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2007
Aaah... I’ve waited for this bottle a couple of years now. It’s old, but not yet bb. The aroma promises well, with fruitful cherry-notes and some oakyness. This is dark brown, with a small white head. I’m drinking this from a real La Trappe (champagne-shaped) glass, and the foam looks intriguing, like a swamp actually. The first sip is good with its fizzyness. The alcohol warms in a good way. More woody flavours and less fruit. Long, full finish. My kind o’ play thingie.
