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!

Baramba (164) - ITALY - NOV 25, 2014
33 cl bottle @ Maison Leffe. Red colour with creamy off-white head. Aroma and flavour of fruits and spices. Probably the best Leffe

mircoas (116) - ITALY - NOV 24, 2014
33cl @ bottle. Belgian strong ambrata. Birra stra-diffusa ma buona, uno dei migliori rapporti qualità prezzo che possiamo trovare nei supermercati italiani.

puredelusion (17) - Lviv, UKRAINE - NOV 24, 2014
0,33 bottle. Flower/fruits aroma, amber colour and almost clear liquid. Medium carbonation, minimal head. Medium sweet, light bitter, thin texture. Reminds of Leffe Brune in overall.

brystmar (1289) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Been after this one since initially trying it in KL back in April 2010. Had a feeling it would be disappointing; here goes...

Mahogany-amber color leaves my glass filthy with white head & lace. Smells like disappointment. Taste wreaks of artificial fruit sweeteners, though it's not cloying. Not awful, yet still a ways from being acceptable. Bleh.

Blastomorpha (9) - - NOV 14, 2014 does not count
I drank the 33cl bottle version of this beer a couple of time, its very dark amber color and the almost orange top always looked very promising, but in both the occasions it reminded a more alcoholic but less complex Vieille Cuvée, and way less sweet which can be good for many people. I find it lacking a distinct note in the aroma department, especially if served chilled as suggested. Not bad at all, but better wait a while to let it "open" a bit.

kustie (199) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber color with small white head. Aroma has yeast, ripe fruits, raisin and spices. Taste is quite malty with long aftertaste. Flavors of fruits, caramel, hops and some alcohol in the end.

Mooi rood-bruin bier met een mooie schuimkraag. Ruikt zoet met licht bitter. Aparte smaak, zoet bitter. Lekker !
