Bottle. Pours dark amber with big, white, peristent head. Aroma of caramel, spices, chocolate, berries with some perfumy alcohol notes. Sweet caramel taste with nice fruity notes. Pleasant alcohol note. Bittersweet finish. NIce, rich belgian ale.

MustangMarkF (219) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2014
330ml Bottle. This pours a thick white head over a clear ruby brown body. Its aroma is yeast, banana, caramel and dark berry. Its slightly medicinal when that combination is mixed with the sweetness of the high alcohol content. Its taste is quite typically Belgian. The smokiness and the sweetness are to the fore but theres also malts and a fair bit of dark berry too. It finishes with a sweet bitter aftertaste. I’m surprised this beer was so good coming from Leffe but there are better.

minutemat (1387) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2014
330ml bottle from Les Crepes de Sophie, Shrewsbury. Highly carbonated which begs a slow savour.. presents a floral, aromatic yeast quality with hints of a tripel character and a blackberry aftertaste the further in you go. Quite possibly the best Leffe out there.

Bamsen78 (3003) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear darkish amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit and caramel malt. Sweetish flavour of malt and caramel, with distinct fruity (berrylike?) notes and touches of hops. Discernible alcohol presence. Bittersweet aftertaste. Nice.

teorn88 (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2013
33cl bottle at A Tutta Birra, Milan. Dark amber coloured, with large, creamy off-white head. Aroma is yeasty, dark fruits and spicey. Interesting and nice taste; full bodied, malty, and fruity with a slight bitter aftertaste. Quite good.

Shain (37) - ISRAEL - DEC 20, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2013 Low carbonation. Malty - fruity wine like taste. Gentle bitter-sweet flat taste that swallows clean and smooth with little to no after taste. Good balance if sweet to bitter. The taste is nice but is too clean and constant.

Nett und fruchtig, wenn auch etwas leicht auf der Brust. Rosinen mit Pflaumen, dazu etwas Alkohol. Nicht schlecht.

Jeden ze słabszych w rodzinie leffe. Niezbyt wyraźny aromat drożdżowy, przyprawy z dominującą kolendrą. W smaku jak na belga mało treściwy, lekko przyprwowy, kolendra jako dominująca przyprawa wypadła nieźle, ale tylko jako ciekawostka.
