bottle, 33 cl at home. Beautiful ruby color. Compact head. Balanced carbonation. Sweet, with a touch of sour and mildly bitter finish. Fruity. One of my favourite leffes!

Pours amber with a nice white head, some lacing. Aroma is sweet, dark, ripe fruit (berries, apple, cherry), caramel, Belgian yeast, some alcohol. Taste is similar to aroma; it’s sweet and fruity, some burnt caramel and biscuity notes. Finish is dry, spicy, a bit roasty and alcoholic. Medium-bodied and rather carbonated (could be less). Nice.

Lore (2168) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 16, 2016
clear amber colour with ruby notes, half inch of creamy, bright beige-ish off-white head; aroma of dried cherry, anise notes, caramel and biscuit, fruitiness and mybe hints of smokey notes;taste is prctically the same; correct Belgian strong ale, but nothing more

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
- dunkelbraune Farbe mit guter Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Bitterschokolade, Dörrobst, Banane und etwas Holz - die Carbonisierung ist mir eine Spur zu brausig - der Antrunk ist dann betont malzig-süß - ab dann dominiert der Alkohol den Geschmack leider zu sehr - im Abgang verliert sich das Bier dann endgültig in eine alkoholische Wässrigkeit Fazit: Zu sehr vom Alkohol dominiert ohne besondere weitere Noten

Kirkas, punertavanruskea olut sentin paksuisella kermanvärisellä vaahdolla. Tuoksussa marjaisuutta, happamuutta ja hieman makeutta. Myös mausta löytyy lievää marjaisuutta, hedelmäisyyttä ja hieman mausteisuutta. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma. Bonusta siitä, että tämä on kivasti erilainen Leffe Bruneen ja Blondeen verrattuna.

Evilman (121) - Taverny, FRANCE - JUL 29, 2016
A pleasant surprise! The rating here gave me the urge to try this one and I’ve not been disappointed. While being "just" another product in the massive Ledge catalogue, this one really tries to compete with the best Belgian beers everyone knows and love. It maybe lacks a more characteristic aftertaste, but overall this is a solid and interesting beer. Nice alcohol level and strong taste in mouth, definitely a good bet! APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW!

Derbeth (718) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 18, 2016
Bottle. Aroma is quite much coriander, some cherry, caramel, alcohol. Light bitterness, not sweet. Lively carbonation. Typical Belgian in taste, although alcohol in evident.

Bijl (225) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2016
Donkerrood amber van kleur, crème kleurige foamy schuimkraag met groffe bellen en helder in het glas. Deze blijft mooi lang. Aroma: Karamel, iets gerookt...lijkt wel de geur van spek, donker fruit, koriander en iets kruidige hops. Smaak: Tikje Citrus zuur, karamel, iets netelig / kruidig, donker fruit, iets rokerig / hartig en wat Belgische gist. Redelijk wat Koolzuur, Redelijke body, zacht en romig mondgevoel, prikkeling en iets alcohol warmte. Afdronk is redelijk lang iets droog en een tikje bitter. Deze is om rustig te drinken.
