Bottle from Beers of Europe. 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. Excellent.

danid (3) - ISRAEL - SEP 29, 2004 does not count
one of my favorites I do agree with cornboy sometimes it has a wierd aftertaste but the liberal aplication of a second bottle seems to make it disappear for some reason .One of the great beers but not for beginners

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2004
Spicy ripe fruit/raisin aromas. Nice yeasty pour, flavors of yeast/dough with plummy sweetness and spice. What I didnt like is the bitter aftertaste, didnt match the rest of the beer. Alcohol well hidden though

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - AUG 12, 2004
(on bottle) By far the best leffe I´ve had. Fat raisin, wood and wheat aromas. Creamy, dates and lots of alcohol in the mouth. Meditationale par exelance. But the violet paperwrapping makes it a bit....girlish.

Sigmund (5569) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2004
(33 cl bottle). Deep golden brown colour, no haziness, large head. Aroma is not very strong, but pleasant - yeasty and fruity (canned plums), some spices and herbs too. Full bodied sweet flavour, still quite smooth. Brown candy sugar, Christmas fruit cake spices and herbs prevail. Some alcoholic warmth, but not dominant. A great sipping beer!

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2004
Nice rich sweet nose. Malt, caramelized sugar, Belgian yeast, pear. Coppery brown clear with off-white foamy lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts sweet with rich malts, caramel, and no acidity. Good bitterness in the finish to complement the sweet. Warming alcohol and sweet after.

AlphaOne (142) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2004
Rubyish brown, rocky head. Fruity, Cherry, and a spicy alcohol aroma detected, along with a little caramelized malt. Flavour was of oaky fruit, banana, cherry and necterine. Sweet honeyish malt, spice, pepper, along with light piney notes, fairly complex. Dry, bitter and spicy finish with good lingering spice.

More rounded than the Leffe Brune, but also has a lot of alcohol in the taste. Deeb amber colour, very nice.
