The authentic Belgian abbey beer: Leffe Vieille Cuvee has a creamy and very aromatic taste.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - FEB 1, 2003
Dark amber colour, with a nice creamy head. The flavour is spicy and fruity with a medium bitter finish. A good commercial Belgian beer.

The Etruscan (528) - Tuscany, ITALY - FEB 1, 2003
Thin creamy beige head. Dark copper color. Aroma is malty, fruity and slightly spicy. Flavor is fruity too with alcohol, spices and wooden tones and ends in a bitter dry finish. Medium bodied.

Let’s see now. I liked it: quite creamy. Don’t agree that it was too bitter. Maybe everyone who complained about that is softcore.

skortila (4482) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - DEC 8, 2002
Sweet, and fruity smell, raisins. Good lookin, dark amber colour, bit cloudy. Lasting head. Taste is sweet and malty, bit burned. Fruits; raisins. Palate is more hop-bitter.

jerohen (1992) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2002
UPDATED: APR 7, 2003 Amber-brown appearance. Very nice nose. I'm not sure about the style, but it's pretty nice. Thick, creamy and a bit malty. Palate however is way too bitter.

This time I got a much smaller head than the previous rate. Aroma was the same. Flavours similar except perhaps for some honey and hint of dried fruits and apple this time. A bit fizzier than I remember. Still quite good.
First rated Oct 7 2002: 3.7. Well it sure is nice to have a Belgian again after the array of lacklustre lagers I’ve been rating during the last month. Pours a deep amber clear with a large light-beige medium size, long lasting head. Light yeast with fainter citrus peel, spices and sappy hops aroma. Malt more evident as it warms. Medium body. Medium bitter hops, lighter sweet malt and some perfume/aromatic spice flavours. Bright crisp clean bitter finish and aftertaste. ABV is quite well masked for such medium-light body/flavours. Quite good for a Leffe.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2002
Very yeasty like the other Leffe brews. This is probably the best Leffe but I still won’t buy it again.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2002
No real complexity. Notes of both fruit and malt, but nothing long-lasting. Pretty sweet with a alcoholic tone.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2002
Pretty alcoholic seasoned beer. Very parfumed and artificial.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2002
Pretty uneventful, good colour and head, as expected but flavour and aroma a real let down, minimal complexity, some sweetness, not quite boring, but lacking interest.
