inbirraveritas (1612) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 1, 2010
0.33 l bottle.
Mahogany (with a ruby back) colour, medium and cancellous pale brown head, average carbonation.
Intensive and sweetish, (banana)fruity smell of yeast.
The taste is sweet, the flavour’s banana-fruity liked.
Aroma of roasted malt, yeast and citrus hops, the finish is moderate spicy, citric and kinda dry.
The body is medium, texture is sticky.
Nice brew. auerbrau (3206) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2010
On tap at The Belgian Cafe - Intercontinental Hotel - Abu Dhabi, UAE. This beer is probabaly going to get higher than average rating from me, because its the first realish beer I’ve had in a week and I’ve been dying for a real beer. Nonetheless, it was thirst quenching, a bit spicy, with some muddled brown sugar and simple syrup. Dryish, with lots of belgian esters. Really not that good for a Dubbel. Okay for a milder Belgian Brown. Quaffable, certainly. scanovajr (754) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JAN 8, 2010

Bottle from St Maarten. A good dubbel, not blowing me away or anything, but solid for shiz. How did I never rate regular Leffe?? Weird. JulienHuxley (5950) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2009
Bottle. Nice brown pour with a persistent white head. Aromas of yeast, plums and candy sugar. Good fruity sweet taste with some strong yeast and alcohol notes. Good mouthfeel, not too watery and correct carbonation. jimmay (815) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2009
Bottle from LCBO. Pours deep cloudy brown. Aroma is sweet, like brown sugar, spicy esters. Taste is similarly sweet, not much hop here, and cabonation is fine. Enjoyable! hawthorne00 (4114) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2009
Dark brown. Small but lingering beige head. Aroma of spiced red berries and brown sugar. Fruity sweetness is cut somewhat by some discernible hops. Alcohol is hidden. The finish becomes more interesting as it warms - it’s pruney and a little bitter. Balanced but rather dull. Blom (848) - Sorø, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2009
On tap. Brown with a dense low head. Sweet aroma of fruits, spice and caramel. The flavour is sweet, dominated by the malts, but the yeast is also clearly present. Medium-bodied and creamy. A classic.
