SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2004
Looks purty, dark with tan head. Smells great, lots of madeira grapes. Flavorsome little beauty with the madeira followed by some bitter, not particularly long lasting bitter or palate.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - FEB 15, 2004
Brown with a medium tan head. Clear as are all the other Leffe brews, I find this a flaw, I'd prefer to have some cloudiness in my Belgian Ales. A spiced, sweet tea scent. Initially sweet with a spicy bite in the middle. A slight bitter lingers, a nice balance. Does a good job masking the alcohol. Just a notch behind the Radieuse IMHO but one I will have again. Wish it was a bottle conditioned ale, just imagine how much better it would be!

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2004
Amber-brown. Very small head. Sweet, spice (coriander), alcohol, little unpleasent finish.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2004
(Bottled, at TOT '04) Amber-brown, clear color with average, off-white head that mostly diminishes. An aroma of milk chocolate, straw and a hint of yeast. The flavor is fruity, slightly sweet and acidic, also sour. Finish is long (sticks to the teeth), quite bitter and also sour. Full-bodied, dry, creamy and syrupy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. A very enjoyable, fruity, full and soft strong ale.

SilkTork (5297) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2004
Bottle. From BeersofEurope. BBE April 05. Creamy it is. And hides the alcohol well. Nice tea-flower and passion fruit flavour. A pleasant and enjoyable beer.

Filthmuppet (33) - Newtown, AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2003
Mmmmm. Spicey woody aroma. Finishes with nice dry fruity flavour. Incredibly smooth on the palate. Overtones of pomegranate. A true high alcohol session beer, so easy to drink.

pilsnerrogge (2554) - Finspång, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2003
Amber colored with a typical huge "Belgian head". Fruity, yeasty aroma with notes of bubblegum. Fruity and quite sweet flavor. The alcohol gives it a marzipan-bitter finish.

madsberg (10527) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2003
Bottled: Clear bronze coloured. Beige lasting head. Yeasty, malty with a touch of spices. Fruity and malty aroma. Light alcahol notes. Is smooth and round. Nice and easy drinkable beer.

bluevegie (3063) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2003
Malty caramel and light bitter initial taste,mild aroma and medium body, syrupy thin texture with an alcoholic finish.Not one of my favourites!

Amber color. Some malt aroma, with a Madeira note. Malt body, quite powerful, but missing a real character. Alcohol touch.
