8.5% alk. Nakon duge sue to se Leffea tiče, napokon ulovio novi Leffe. Lijepa crvenkasta piva, voćni miris i voćni okus. Izvrsno zamaskiran alkohol, uopće se ne osjeti ovih 8.5% alk. Ali ipak je previe voćna da bi bila ozbiljna piva.

malt and liquorice aroma. Amber colour, with lng lasting head. Taste is malty, raisin, caramel, alcohol, reminds me of a specific candy. Overall too sweet for my taste, but great balanced.

bartlebier (3771) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2016
33cl bb12/2017, BL sampler 4. - Simpleton yeast and candi caramels lay a sugary blanket over what could have been a stewed stone fruit bouquet. Ruby-amber pour with decent foam pillow. Smells like cassonade brown sugar, then tastes like it as well, dissolved like syrup into a boozy dark malt broth before a harsh hop bitterness seals the candi bag with a metal clasp. Minimal roast bread, plums, raisin and refined maple syrup at the outer edges looking in to this macrosugar-powered diabetes machine. No wonder label proposes you to drink this chilled at 5C like a soft drink. Did not finish.

MelvinKalksma (1366) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2016

Aroma:
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast and fruit.

Appearance:
Clear/hazy dark orange/red beer with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Medium sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast and fruit.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense and balanced, but lacks complexity. A sweet beer with no other flavour really, but manages to not be cloying. Soft palate that works great with this. Decent, but could have been a lot more complex.

CurlyJoe (193) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2016
Pours a dark, clear orange/brown with relatively thin white-ish head. Sweet, malty aroma. Clean malty taste with a bitter finish. Fantastic beer thats easy drinking (and dangerous at 8.5%!). Leffe has done it again with this Belgian brew.

Richardvv94 (33) - Valthe, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2016
Alleen gedronken, goede en volle schuimkraag van lange duur, ruikt zoet en fruitig geen bijgeuren, smaakt vaag naar sterke bosvruchtenthee, zoet en bitterbalans zijn top en geeft een warm mondgevoel.

kaserov (479) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 26, 2016
Color mbar (reflejos granates) con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor. No mucha carbonatacin. Aroma mnimo a malta (casi imperciptible y, ms aun, si la tomas a los 5 que indica la botella). Sabor maltoso, dulzn, planete, recuerda al estilo belga, evidentemente, pero lejos de las cervezas de calidad. 8,5% bastante bien disimulados aunque el regusto final sea mnimamente alcohlico. Sin ms.

Bush_Docta (228) - - SEP 19, 2016
Pours amber with a nice white head, some lacing. Aroma is sweet, dark, ripe fruit (berries, apple, cherry), caramel, Belgian yeast, some alcohol. Taste is similar to aroma; its sweet and fruity, some burnt caramel and biscuity notes. Finish is dry, spicy, a bit roasty and alcoholic. Medium-bodied and rather carbonated (could be less). Nice.
