morri (199) - NORWAY - SEP 28, 2013
330ml bottle from a German supermarket. Medium tan head which dissolves quickly. Good lacing. Clear dark amber body. Aroma is sharp to the nose. I notice mostly malt, some wooden aromas and herbs. Excellent palate, very lively in the mouth, but fades as the foam settles. Sweet on the tongue. Some alcohol taste down the throat. Easily drinkable, but not boring. This one is actually pretty good! Leffe recommends that this one is served at about 5°C, but I find that the aromas as more present at higher temperatures.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2013 Butelka 330ml.Kolor bursztynowo wisniowy, klarowne.Piana obfita srednio i drobo pecherzykowa.Aromat bananowo kwiatowy lekko alkoholowy, do tego troche przyprawowy fenolowy. Wysycenie dosc wysokie, szczypiace w jezyk. Cialo srednio niskie, piwo dosc wytrawne. Smak podobnie jak w aromacie z gorycza polaczona z alkoholem na finishu.Bardzo podobne do Leffe Radieuse, odrobine bardziej delikatne, mniej wysycone, mniejsza goryczka na finishu.

ThreeCats (563) - ISRAEL - AUG 31, 2013
Deep copper-Ruby color with a nice head. Aroma of deep caramel red fruit. Taste of spice, alcohol, and fruit. Much drier than the aroma would suggest. By far the best Leffe product I’ve tasted

tom10101 (2726) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle (330 ml) @ Pub St-Alexandre (Québec). BB 29-11-2013. Clear amber with a low off-white head and light lacing. Aroma of sweetness, madeira (oxidation), caramel and dark fruits. Taste is moderately sweet with oxidation, caramel, dark fruits and candi sugar. Medium body. Low carbonation. Sirupy mouthfeel. Certainly very different than fresh and a little too oxidized, but still enjoyable and quite complex. Not overly sweet. Interesting.

ruigo (1072) - PORTUGAL - AUG 19, 2013
Shared 33cl from La Cave à Bière de St Léo. It pours a dark amber, brownish colour with a tan and persistent head. Aroma is hops, fruity and floury. Medium to low carbonation. Starts quite bitter and the the flavour lasts for a while. A nice beer but with a little too much alcohol on the flavour.
