Bottle from Belgian Beer Shop.com. colour: clear amber. Moderate white head that’s pretty stable. The aroma is very malty with lots of sweetness. This smells like a Speciale Belge. So is the taste: malty, sweet with a touch of bitterness, fruity notes. This is a good beer with a thirst quenching character.

Syfher (302) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2016
Bottle of 33cl, in a Leffe glass; from the fridge. As usual for Leffe today, no real taste and no real aroma.Refreshing, but no worth the money.

imdownthepub (12813) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2016
Bottled, 330ml as Leffe Rossa at Brasserie St. Epvre, Nancy, France. Amber towards red with off white head. Sweet, fruity beer, light red currant note with a sweetish malty hint. Thinnish, lightly herby. It’s okay,

Kosmokrator (813) - ITALY - APR 24, 2016
Alla spina. Malto, zucchero caramellato, un tocco nocciolato, sentori metallici. Dolciastra, appiccicosa, persistente. Spiacevole.

Draft in some bar near Bercy trainstation. Sweet fruit, spice bread and grassy. Sweeter than bitter. A little buttery.

Bottle sample at a tasting . Thanks Shmupi. BBD 02/12. Hazy orange-amber color. Smell of candy, yeast, alcohol and dried fruits. Sweet, sugary and alcoholic flavors, notes of overripe fruit, yeast, caramel and honey. Passed its prime.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Tom L’s place. Thanks Shmupi. BBD 02/12. Slightly hazy copper with beige head. Sweet aroma with notes of candy and milk chocolate, some graininess, creamy. Very alcoholic flavor, grainy and sugary, notes of caramel and honey. Lively carbonation, medium-bodied. Too old.

josanguapo (942) - SPAIN - JUL 31, 2015
At bar Viriato, Sevilla. On tap, in leffe glass. With Viriato burger. At first it seems soft and nice, but in the long run you get a bit tired of it sweetness and the alcohol makes you a bit dizzy. In Spanish this is called Leffe Roja. Only on tap

freretoc (1536) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 10, 2015
Bue à la pression en 50cl acheté au Bar de l’U bu au Scénacle, couleur ambrée/pourpre, mousse moyenne et peu d’effervesence, une bière avec une attaque sur le sucre candy très forte et sur le grain fin de bouche sur la levure caractéristique de le Leffe.
