Ambrée claire, pétillance fine. Plutôt douce et maltée, légèrement caramélisée, un rien sucrée, amère et un peu sèche sur la fin, aucune longueur. Toujours rien de spécial sous le ciel de la Leffe...

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.

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

From tap at the Beerstore, Thessaloniki. Almost clear, dark amber color with white head. Aroma is malty, spicy, citrusy fruity, caramel, dusty malty. Sweet and light bitter taste, fruity and dusty like aroma. Light almost oily body with soft carbonation.

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.

Pours a clear copper ish with a creamy off white head. Strong yeast aroma. Taste is an initial bitter with no real finish.

ManVsBeer (6217) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Keg @ De Kuppe, Brugge. Called Printemps Lentebier. Clear cherry-red colour with a small bubbly head. The cherry is evident but light and it’s a fairly refreshing fruity beer with its strength not really evident.

Alengrin (3549) - BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2014
Tasted as Leffe Rossa in Venice in 2004 and as Leffe Bière de Printemps / Lentebier when it was put on the Belgian market under that name in 2011. Perfectly equal, off-white, creamy head, light amber colour, clear with calm sparkling. Pasteurized smell, caramelly malts, bit nutty, molasses, meat broth, biscuit, tulips, tomato, mango, smoked bacon. Caramelly taste, slick with rather thin body, floral and honeyish, sweetish, strongish carbo, fairly straightforward and boring like the other Leffes. Slight hop bitterness in the finish as well as badly hidden alcohol. Another industrial, ’dead’ AB InBev product.

Een bier met een beetje een speciale smaak, sommigen zullen dit lekker vinden, maar ik vond het niet zo goed.
