Bottle 330ml. Perfectly balanced, stunning. Aromas of caramel, butter, and also some alcohol. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and a long warm finish. Palate is syrupy, and full-bodied. Amber colour, with a creamy white head.

An extraordinary beer, without discussion. Very beautiful colour, intense and bright reddish, transparent and almost ruby. The head is medium, longlasting, spongy and compact. Vey rich aromas, perfectly balanced, to toffee, nuts, red fruits and toasted grain. In mouth, it presents a great, progressive and complex development, revealing notes of toffee, coffee and a very little bit of toasted malt, with a background of nice hop and a faint presence of lactic yeast. The overall is simply majestic: creamy, rich, with a plenty of nuances perfectly combined and ordered.Really, an extraordinary beer.

minutemat (1387) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2014
330ml bottle from Les Crepes de Sophie, Shrewsbury. Highly carbonated which begs a slow savour.. presents a floral, aromatic yeast quality with hints of a tripel character and a blackberry aftertaste the further in you go. Quite possibly the best Leffe out there.

What a great drug! Fluffy head that belies the thickness of the creamy, spicy beer. Stewed plums, strawberries cinnamon and bready or shortcake flavours. Went spazzo on the 8.1% for 20 minutes. (skulled it). Will skull again! Bravo.

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

Bottle. Pours ruby amber, clear and with a good head. Smells sweet, fruit, berries and wood. Soft but firm taste of Madeira. Lovely full and rounded mouthfeel leads to lip smacking, tacky aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
