Bottle from belgianbeergal, thanks! we did tasting of 4 diff Leffe beers. The blonde is the best IMO. this one poured a brown color with a decent sized head. Aroma was simply yeast and raisins. Flavor was muted, I expected more. Slightly sweet and has flavors of raisins and vanilla. I wish it had a bit more oomph. Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2008
Aroma is of banana, oranges and raisins.
Taste is a nice mixed fruits combo that goes down with a nice alcohol warmth.
Lies good in the mouth en goes down well any time. Beltramelli (470) - Campinas, BRAZIL - SEP 18, 2008
Creme denso e persistente. Coloração avermelhada bem escura. No aroma e sabor, muito malte torrado, café, chocolate, fermento de pão, biscoito... O final é longo e agradavelmente amargo. Não deixe de experimentar. jfb (6229) - GERMANY - SEP 14, 2008

2008 Bottle in St Barths - I thought this was put together much nicer than the blonde...pours deep brown with a decent head...aroma is fruit and toasty yeast...much more subdued in flavour, great caramel malt balanced with dry bread and back end hop bitters...I would drink this again...

Frothy, too much of a moutful, rather rough around the edges, tastes of caramel and toffee though. AsaNewt (113) - blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2008
a wonderful brown colour with a nice frothy head. Flavour is leather and tobacco in a really good way but with a caramalised sweetness that cuts straight through. Divine. TrappistNr8 (15) - Goes, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2008
very dark brown color, has a fruity taste, I also taste some spice and a little bit of caramel. has almostly no hop flavour; it’s also a little too sweet for me, but it isn’t that bad, especially not if you like sweet Abbey beers deft (84) - SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2008
Clear very dark brown with lots of frothy tan head. Fruity aroma, spices and bread, some caramel. Sweet and bitter taste, caramel and some bread. High acidity
