sinte (387) - Udine, ITALY - MAY 11, 2006
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.

Only one thing to say about this beer: SIMPLY IMPRESSIVE! The Leffe brewery really knows how to brew beers in a way that results in hell of a good beer brew. I like this one because of its deep aroma and fruity flavor.

DuffMan (7461) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2005
This is not my idea of a good Belgian beer. Waaaayyy to sweet! Cherry syrup in the aroma and on the palate. The alcohol is well hidden, but only because it is buried under cough-syrup sticky sweetness.
