Ungstrup (29226) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2002
A beutiful deep red color but with no head. It has a very special and nice taste of cinnamon and other spices. It is a very filling beer with a great balance between the hops bitternes and the sweetness of the malt. A very fine beer.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful reddish brown beer, nice full and stable head. Very spicy and sophisticated with enough bitterness to balance the sweetness. Believe this is my Leffe favourite together with "Radieuse". My version was 7,8% ABV. 270593

joergen (20664) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2004
Red beer with a big beige head. Sweet aroma with notes of yeast and spices. Good and intensive flavour with lots of sweetness, malt, spices and a well-balanced bitterness. A bit too overcarbonated for my liking.

oh6gdx (20302) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 26, 2008
Bottled, found in my own cellar as I moved. Deep rubyish amber colour with mediumsized fluffy off-white head, nice lace. Aroma is caramel, fruits, some bread as well as some alcohol and mild yeastyness. Flavour is spices, alcohol, bread and some fruits along with caramel malts. A very pleasantly balanced beer.

omhper (19336) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2002
Pours thick and orange brown. Fruity aroma, full bodied, but overly sweet for my liking. Lacks the complexity of the better examples of the style.

anders37 (16595) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2006
Bottle. Clear brown colour with a longlasting tan head. Sweet malty yeasty aroma with some hints of dark fruits. Smooth spicy malty flavor with hints of dark fruits. Has a warming and slightly bitter aftertaste.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Amber coloured beer. Crisp. Darkish flavours, slightly bitter. Dry finish. Not bad!

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