A real thick, heavy beer. Very tasty and definitely one to enjoy slowly

Senka (903) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 27, 2015
33cl. Aroma of spring flowers and garden roses. Pours amber clear with thick white head and a beautiful lacing. Sweet and fruity, yet malty and quite high on abv. Quite noticeable. Surprisingly thin and watery. Slick. Medium carbonation. Aftertaste notes of fried bacon. Rather greasy. Quite weird brew - floral aroma and a taste of bacon. Suits well roast pork and chips (has nothing to do with the bacon flavor).

Aroma doce de malte tostado e frutado com notas sutis de banana e caramelo. Espuma com boa formação e presença de rendado belga. Sabor de malte tostado, e caracteristicas amadeirada de longa duração. Cerveja seca e bastante alcoólica.

mauroruellas (372) - GETULINA, BRAZIL - JUL 5, 2015
Acobreada,bela espuma formando um creme bege alto,volumoso e com boa duração;no aroma malte tostado,caramelo,frutas vermelhas,banana e notas condimentadas;apesar do bom corpo o sabor é fácil de beber,com o dulçor maltado e frutado aparecendo de forma equilibrada,leve picante no final,álcool notado mas bem inserido,retrogosto adocicado e levemente alcoólico,amargor praticamente inexistente. Ótima cerveja,seguindo a qualidade dos rótulos Leffe,excelente custo/benefício,recomendo.

Uma ótima Leffe. Avermelhada com bia formação de espuma de média duração. Aroma com notas de doce de banana, tabaco, madeira, frutas vermelhas, leve caramelo e um potente floral do lúpulo. O sabor reproduz quase todas as notas do aroma, porém em menos intensidade, mas de forma bem equilibrada. Corpo médio com final longo, amadeirado e frutado e suave amargor no retrogosto

Marduk (3991) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 5, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear dark amber color. Medium size, thick beige head, stays. Alcohol, Belgian yeast, caramel, faint earthy, sweet notes in aroma. Caramel, mild hops, slightly hops, bit yeasty, bready malts in taste. Caramel and dead grassy hops in aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Soft bitterness from hops. Nice one.

thirstyrabbit (1433) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 4, 2015
Bottle. Light copper body, medium head. Aroma has sweet caramel and Leffe yeast. But it feels weaker than the aroma of the regular Leffe Blonde. Sweet sugary taste, pretty similar to the Blonde but adds some darker malt and interestingly a hint of halva. Soft and airy but also pretty industrial. After a while it starts to resemble more and more the regular Leffe Blonde, however the finish is measurably hotter. I like the original Leffe Blonde because it was the first Belgian Ale that I tried and in comparison to the beers I knew at that time it felt really different. This one seems unnecessary because it doesn’t really add anything remarkable to the original (well, besides alcohol).

SkillsFactory (176) - ITALY - JUN 2, 2015
Rossa con riflessi ambrati, limpida, schiuma beige pannosa e di media persistenza. Aroma speziato di chiodi di garofano e leggero coriandolo, banana matura e uva passa, zucchero caramellato, lievito, qualche nota legnosa e metallica. Al palato sempre molto presenti i chiodi di garofano e il coriandolo, dopo qualche secondo si fanno avanti anche gli esteri fruttati, il lievito e la nota alcolica finale. Corpo medio, non molto carbonata. Birra da meditazione piacevole ma non eccezionale, non mi convince del tutto (come ogni Leffe in fin dei conti)...
