(bottle) pours a clear copper-amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of shashlik spice and pepper, light mushrooms, red paprika, light caramel and pale malts, interesting. flavour is mostly the same, very spicy and savoury, fried mushrooms, alcohol, cherries and a hint of physalis. heavy-bodied with lively carbonation.

330ml bottle served in a chalice. A: Pours a clear dark amber color forming a very creamy, soapy and persistent light yellow head. Lots of lingering and molasses lacings are formed and left in the glass S: Sweet, fruity and spicy in the nose. Notes of caramel, caramel malts, honey, candy sugar, dark fruits (mainly plums and grapes). Light spicy notes like cloves and black pepper. Strong Belgian yeasts character: quite bready and earthy. Light notes of flowery hops T: Sweet and malty upfront. Strong notes of toffee and caramel malts. Notes of honey and dry dark fruits (plums and raisins). Sweet bread and some spices like cloves. Notes of bubblegum, earth and hops. Light bitterness. Balanced bittersweet strong Belgian Ale style M: Full and molasses body. Medium carbonation. Very sweet and malty aftertaste O: Good drinkability despite the sweetness and high ABV (8.2%). Belgium Strong Ale character. Recommended [ BA Review @ 4/24/2010 ]

Barwa ciemna, ale klarowna. Piana szybko znikająca. W smaku wyczuwalne mocno nuty owocowe.

JLDC (72) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2014
Colour: ruby with tones of copper. Creamy white head. Nose: caramelised fruit, malts, herbs and licorice. Flavours: dark fruit, raisins, hoppy bitterness. Notes of spices. Finish: quite bitter and earthy, fruity notes disappear. Medium long. Verdict: nice, but not quite the ’magnum opus’ from Leffe I was expecting.

Belle couleur ambrée cuivrée, mousse beige qui disparait. Nez fruit caramelisés. Gout fruité, levures, malt, forts fruits caramelisés avec note raisin, caramel, herbe grasse et bonne amertume. Très légère en bouche et buvable, très bonne leffe!
