yespr (31110) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours clear deep amber with a thick creamy light off-white head. Deep malty aroma and a lot of dried fruits. A minor spiced note too. Sweet caramel malty flavour with a lot of cane sugar. Nice balance giving a soft experience from start to finish. Finish is slight warming to burning. Nice by all measures.

Ungstrup (29226) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2002
A beutiful red beer with a wonderful head. It has a sweet aroma of fruits. And a sweet tickling taste of flowers and fruit. It ends of on a slight bitter note. You do not taste the alcohol content - a very nice beer.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Reddish brown ale. Pronounced bitterness with a very complex aroma. Fruity, perfumy but far from cloying. A very spicy and unique brew. 120493

oh6gdx (20302) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2007
Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is dark fruits, yeast and hops. Flavour is made out of pretty much the same. A bit glueish, but otherwise very nice brew.

omhper (19336) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2010
Bottled, thanks Nightfall! Clear reddish brown, small head. Yeasty caramlel aroma with some cranberry tartness. Sweet and fruity. Raisiny and sugar. Medium bodied, not really firm. Slight notes of orange marmelade, some boiled vegetables in a finish with some spicy bitterness. A bit harsh and without real character.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Hard to place flavours. A little cherry and some toffee notes as well. Dry and slightly bitter finish. Not bad.

Well mature bottle. Dark amber color; creamy giant head. Some malt, caramel, spices and grass in the nose; malt, caramel, honey and spices in the flavor; the taste is also completed by a correct bitterness; hides well the alcohol content. Bitter long final.

In my early years I used to consider it my favourite one. Actually it's too poor in character and originality; but it's solidity pushes it to be the best among the Leffe.
