Una belgian strong ale abbastanza gradevole, ma meno male che l’ho assaggiata in un fromato da 33 cl, perché ha un dolce che, a lungo andare, stava diventando stucchevole. Se siete appassionati delle belgian strong ale, cercate altro.

adster (120) - HUNGARY - JUN 21, 2014
Habja krémes és hosszan megmaradó, egy fél centiméter vastag réteg szinte a végsőkig kitart. Aszalt gyümölcsös, élesztős illata van, ízében azonban ezeknél hangsúlyosabban van jelen egy könnyed kesernyésség némi fűszerességgel. Az alkohol már az elején tiszteletét teszi egy kellemesen melengető hatást kiváltva. Idővel a komló visszahúzódik, és csaknem felülkerekednek benne az édeskés ízjegyek. Egyébiránt a megszokott belga ale karakter érvényesül, külön kiemelni nem igazán tudnék semmit.

mcberko (5931) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle at Donald’s Pub in Angers, pours a hazy amber with a small beige head. Nose brings out notes of banana, Belgian yeast, and clove - fairly complex aromatics. Flavour matches accordingly, with some Belgian spices, clove, a little banana, some other fruity esters, and Belgian yeast. Very well-balanced - definitely the best Leffe product. Very good stuff.

33cl bottle thanks to ruigo. Dark reddish amber color. Medium initial head that vanish very quickly. Body is medium and oily, medium to low carbonation. Aroma is toasted caramel, plums. Taste is too sweet. Aftertaste is long and too sweet. not my favorite Leffe...

Nice aroma. This beer tastes similar to their blond option too me but with a duller aftertaste. Another very nice Leffe beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,33 cl. 8,2%. 06/2014. Color tostado oscuro con espuma blanca. Aroma y sabor a azucar tostado y malta. Al final del trago se aprecia el toque a alcohol, que no llega a ser un problema. Una buena cerveza para saborear.

Palate: intense malty sweets, bread, caramel, only lightly bitter at the average-long end. Overall: nice sweet palate, nice Belgian Strong Ale. Bottle from Beer of Belgium, Ypres.

The classic dark fruit aroma that you’d expect, lacking a decent head though. The palate is short and alcohol comes through, just not as rich or indulgent as other Belgian ales.
