Bottle. Dark brown with ruby hints, thin off-white head. Malty and fruity, winter fruits, sherbert, caramel and strong nose. Mouth is more malty and caramel, some alcohol, sharpness, then some bitter relaxed palate. OK, good, little sweet.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2007 Bottled, Inspire, Coventry. Spritzy red pour blanketed with Gilette. Sweet, cakily malty nose. Opens with a lick of copper penny but develops some cardboard and alcohol. Kind of a turbocharged Belgian John Smith’s. Horribly thin, tinny and papery on top a Tripel Karmeliet. lightweight and characterless for the ABV. But have drank it before and enjoyed it. On this showing, very disappointing.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2007 33cl Bottle from Sainsburys. Reddish chestnut with a thick white head; rich aroma of candied fruit, alcohol and malt; nutty and caramel flavours, with a long fruity and slightly bitter finish; alcohol rather too obvious for my taste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled at Sicosis Pours a beautiful, clear dark ruby/brown color. Head is medium, white and creamy. It leaves a gorgeous lacing.
Aroma is strong with a malty/yeasty character with lots of fruity smells. There are notes of berries, chestnuts, peanut butter, plums and a lot of caramel. Well balanced and interesting.
Flavor is bittersweet, fantastic, nutty and caramelly hints and some light herbal, grassy touches complemented by a nice alcoholic kick. Not extreme but very classy.
Body is medium with an oily texture. Carbonation is low which leaves space for the flavors to shine. Nice, mildly alcoholic finish. The best Leffe i’ve tasted.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
(DTW Luzern 07) Ok, but aftertaste ruins this one. Pours nice copper-brown with minimal head. Taste of fruits and spices with nice maltiness, but has a sharp bitter aftertaste that lingers too much.
