The_Osprey (5545) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2015
330ml bottle at home in Blaendulais as ’Leffe Vieille Cuvée’, 8.2% BB May 2017, purple foil. Dark amber orange, totally clear and still, thin layer of foam leaves full lacing. Aroma is sweet, mostly barbeque sauce, soft smoke. Body is medium, foamy yet rounded, low carbonation. Taste is sweet, rounded, raisin, touch of smoke, a little spicy booze showing up. Better than expected. It’s unashamedly sweet but not overly so.

Brodzislaw (202) - POLAND - NOV 10, 2015
drobnoziarnista, opadła z czasem do małej warstwy, zbitej i gęstej, zostawiającej ślad na szkle. Aromat bardzo intensywny, słody ciemne, przypalony karmel (momentami czuć popiół!), przyprawy korzenne, do tego kwiatowo-owocowa nuta wymieszana z drożdżami. W smaku jest równie bogato. Przypalony karmel, owocowość i drożdżowość, skontrowana została spora dawką chmielowej goryczki. Piwo jest gęste, pełne, dobrze zbalansowane, ani za słodkie, owocowo-drożdżowe ani za wytrawne od goryczki chmielowej. Moc alkoholowa ujawnia się z czasem. Średnie wysycenie poprawia pijalność, która jest na poziomie średnim (piwo nie jest lekkie!).

Grisza77 (484) - Poznań, POLAND - OCT 26, 2015
Bursztynowe, klarowne piwo o obfitej pianie, która zdobi szkło i pozostaje do końca w formie sporej warstwy na powierzchni. Aromat owocowy, bananowy z nutą ziołową. W smaku rewelacja, słodycz, owoce, lekka kwaskowość i ziołowośc, wszystko to idealnie współgra. Goryczka średnia, przyjemna, szlachetna, krótka, ziołowa i lekko alkoholowa. Ogólnie bardzo udane belgijskie piwo, bardzo pijalne, po prostu smaczne.
