Uriel (146) - San Jose, California, USA - AUG 31, 2009
very fruity, without being so overwhelmingly fruity that it’s a lambic style. Nice and mild, without being too flat or dull. Nicely tasty.

Belle mousse rosée, jolie robe rouge, arôme fruits rouge, une douceur au palais, certes c’est très sucré mais faible en alcool. Bout 75Cl

Une Leffe couleur ruby en bouteille 50 cl... Leffe aurait fait du haut de gamme? Hélas c’est très sucré, un peu trop. Mais suivi d’une amertume pas des plus agréables. Typiquement en effet le goût du sureau, comme mis sur la bouteille. C’est juste qu’on boit des vins blancs au vrai sirop de sureau meilleur en Allemagne, sirop de fleurs de sureau. Sinon, belle couleur, belle mousse. Fruits originaux aussi, peut-être essayer sur 7% d alcool pour mieux soutenir le goût? Un peu plat. Le goût fait un peu ajouter.

Humlehode (269) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2015
Pours clear red with white head. Faint raspberry and phenolic aroma. Dry, medium body. Low bitterness, slightly harsh after taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JStax (3548) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle pour. The beer is a ruby red with a pink head of foam. The aroma is fruity, but I can’t pick out what fruits they are. The taste is sweet and fruity. Medium body and medium carbonation. Decent beer overall.

UXO (699) - CANADA - MAY 9, 2015
Pours clear red amber with two fingers of fluffy white head, good retention and moderately heavy lacing. (4/5) Nose is sweet artificial red berries. (3/10) Taste is strong sweet, very mild bitter, very slight tart. (3/10) Light body, lively to moderate carbonation, cloying sweet finish. (2/5) "Leffe Ruby is a red, refreshing beer born of the unique combination of the typical flavours of the abbey beer and the delicate notes of red forest fruits.” Yeah... no. Try, "Leffe Ruby is a red, cloying beer born of the questionable combination of the marginal flavours of the abbey beer and the artificial notes of red forest fruits.” This really is not a good beer. If you must try it out of a sense of morbid curiosity, don’t say I didn’t warn you. This might’ve cured me of my weakness for radlers. (8/20)

Bottle. Clear copper red pour with thin thin pinkish white head. Aroma is really fruity, strawberry vanilla, rooibos tea, candy. Taste is sickly sweet, candy, artificial strawberry flavor, vanilla. Palate is med bodied with med carbonation. Too sweet.

Sweet beer, couldn’t really distinguish which particular fruits they had used. Seems more like a radler than a Belgian fruit beer.
