Pyrmir (3478) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2014
330 ml bottle at a hotel room in Skara. Golden with white head. Aroma of alcohol, sweet malt, banana and light grass. Taste is boozy, sweet, malty and lots of banana esters

Holmen2 (1166) - NORWAY - OCT 13, 2014
Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 13.10.14. Clear golden. White head. Vintage banans, coriander and sweet tropical fruits in aroma. Similar and very sweet taste, with hints of Danish pastry. A bit nausiating sweetness, leading to low drinkability.

Syfher (80) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 6, 2014
One of the good beers, maybe not the best but not the worst. Great taste, but very fugace aroma and palate.

Pyobon (957) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 3, 2014
(Bottle) Slightly hazy golden amber with ridiculous white foamy head. Pleasant, fairly subtle aroma of estery yeast with hints of peppery spice. Medium body with pleasant carbonation. Some fruitiness at the start along with caramel and honey. Peppery spice develops and grows into a rather harsh bitter finish. Odd beer: harsh bitterness does not fit well with other softer interesting Belgian flavours.

Franksv6 (252) - Tiel, NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2014
Amber color beer with a nice white head. Smells spicy and fruity. Taste is also sweet fruity, spicy and slightly bitter.

Fashawn (168) - Montesarchio, ITALY - SEP 22, 2014
Altra birra che delude. Come l’altra Leffe, la 9, ha un aroma discreto ed un aspetto decente. Ma all’aroma, di lievito e frutta, oltre che di agrumi, corrisponde una birra eccessivamente frizzante per la pochezza del.corpo. sapore vago di malto w agrumi, appena accentuati. Non riscontro la chiusura calda che servirebbe. Pessima birra per le premesse fatte.

Janroos (5) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2014 Fine taste, fine smell. Correct foam. Well balanced taste. Like a stronger normale leffe or Palm, Missing something like an expicite character. It?s not a top 10 beer but still one to drink more often

hub66 (153) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Belle couleur dorée; petite mousse blanche; arômes fruités moyennement agréables; goût malté et un peu sucré (trop ?); l’alcool se fait légèrement sentir
