Dark brown, beige head. Fruity, liqorice nose. Bittersweet liqorice flavour with hints of fig.

MrBunn (2458) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2005
Aroma is strong of cherry and cinamon. Dark color that is still somewhat transparent. Substantial carbonation. Flavor is dominated by cherry and alcohol. Spices are also prominent. Not bad, but ends with a bit of a harsh astringent aftertaste.

Mklein818 (172) - Etterbeek, Virginia, BELGIUM - MAR 31, 2005
One of the better beers from the Leffe stable--something that can compete with the trappists and the better abbey beers. Of course, it’s tough to get in Belgium (where the deeply inferior Blond predominates), and impossible to get in the US. A pity.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAR 28, 2005
(on bottle) ´bit more spicy than the other leffe. Dark amber brown, with e reddish tone. Much fruit and spices in the nose, less in the flavour. Ends a tad paper-ish.

stouby (3737) - Holbæk, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2005
Bottle, at GB. Brown with light brown head, large, almost disappearing. Aroma of burnt malt and fruity bitterness of hops. Flavor moderate bitter, well balanced. Medium to full body, creamy, normal corbonation.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2005
Very nice beer indeed! Dark brown, deep red coloured. Fruity taste, with the taste of different herbs and a smooth bitterness. Complex and very tasty!

highlandlad (1416) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2005 Satisfying big-flavoured strong Belgian ale. Poured a bottle-brown colour with a short but lasting head. The nose is heavily alcoholic but with plenty of fruit and a hint of toast! Full-bodied and almost port-like in intensity. Ripe cherries and spices on the tongue, with hints of whisky and then a rummy bitter finish. Complex and satisfying. This has more body than the Vieille Cuvee. (Bottle)

Wacher (129) - Århus C, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2005
Kraftig duft af kirsebær. Flot rødbrun farve, stort fyldigt skum. Kirsebær er også meget tydelig i smagen. Dejlig balance. Me like!

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2005
Bottled. Aroma is malty, sweet and fruity, particularly dark cherries. Caramelly, malty taste, some fruitiness and some spiciness. Nice.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 21, 2005
Pour is ruby amber with a dense at first tan head fading into a thin layer...smell is earth fruit and alcohol with a touch of yeast...taste is typical Belgian Strong...earth fruits specifically plums, a little overly sweet with a sticky alcohol finish...
