Bottiglia da 0, 33. Schiuma abbondantissima persistente e corposissima. Colore bruno ambrato intenso. Carbonatura perfetta. Aromi di frutta secca e castagne. Gusto dolciastro con finale breve e deciso. Birra di raro pregio. Consiglio 10/10

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2016 33 cl. bottle. Clear dark amber/copper red with frothy and creamy off-white head. Aroma is quite rich: caramel, honey, coriander, raisins, bubblegum along with fruits and licorice notes, and of course malt. Taste is sweet, almost syrupy with somewhat bitter finish. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation. Bitter aftertaste. It is indeed good to drink once in a while in order to spice the things up, clearly not your (at least my) everyday drink. It is quite heavy for me.

darioklc (747) - Karlovac, CROATIA - OCT 17, 2016
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.

bartlebier (3819) - 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.
