Amber ale style, darker in colour though. Beautiful aroma of hyacinth on first sip, Flavour bangs you of leatherwood honey and liquorice maltiness. Serving these in an abbey might be about the only way you’d get me into a church thesedays: Backs to walls boys. Magnificent

Deep red color, nice head. Fruity Aroma, with a beautiful taste that compliments the alcohol kick.

Only one thing to say about this beer: SIMPLY IMPRESSIVE! The Leffe brewery really knows how to brew beers in a way that results in hell of a good beer brew. I like this one because of its deep aroma and fruity flavor.

0,33l bottle. Color is amber. Aroma is yeast and some caramel. Taste is also yeast, somehow sweet, and alcohol does not dominate, although it has rather high ABV. Overall, it is fantastic and interesting beer, very drinkable and tasty. I would really love do drink it again.

Cor de âmbar maravilhosa, creme denso... Retrogosto de matar qualquer um de delírio. Persistente e evidência de frutas vermelhas, que eu amo.

Like all the beers of the Leffe range (OK, with exception of Leffe Ruby) this is a very good beer. I like its taste specially, one of my favourite beers!

Come ogni Leffe che ho assaggiato, la si comincia a gustare dal naso. L’ho provata per la prima volta in un pub, in cui mi è stata servita alla temperatura adatta e nel suo calice. Buonissima, pure la schiuma (ne fa abbastanza) era buona. Il gusto è eccezionale, l’ho preferita sia alla Leffe 9 che alla Leffe Ville Cuvee. Al palato è un’esplosione di gusto ed aromi, e il retrogusto una volta bevuta è gradevole. La consiglio.

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.

This is a splendid foreign beer. Not too heavy, a touch sweet. Some bitterness. Very pleasurable to drink. What we might call a barley wine. I simply cannot fault this drink. Cheerio!
