Bottle at home. Variant of Leffe Brune but with a little more burnt caramel and a touch more bitterness. Lower in alcohol than most Christmas offerings but nevertheless an interesting, tasty beer. Gangstergafje (1227) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2015 The beer pours a soft almond colored foam, which collapses extremely fast. Only a little bit of foam forms, and a minimal bit of foam remains on top of the bear. The color of the beer is dark amber. The beer is nice and clear, very clear. The smell is nice, but very mild. Almost like water was aded to the beer, which is odd, because it came in the bottle (without the cap though). The smell has a little almond and some hops in it. The beer has the typical Leffe aroma, like all Leffe beers. This makes the smell somehow familiar, which is nice. The taste is better. I taste lemons, and a tiny bitter smoke flavor, together with some hops.The beer has a nice bitterness, balanced perfectly by the sweetness. There is also the typical Leffe flavor. The flavor is not strong enough though, it is not as good as aspects. It is not as fruity, sweet, spicy and warming as I aspect from a Christmas ale. A little disappointing, a pity.

0.33l bottle. Dark red color with nice browny head. Aroma of caramel, malt, spices, fruits and honey. Taste is bitter and sweet. It is extremely well balanced with just enough sweetness for a Christmas beer without it being too sweet. undercurrent25 (2190) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
