beer4eternity (226) - Tauranga, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 5, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2012 330ml bottle, trappist glass, from de Bier Haus Tauranga. Red brown amber hue, light beige bubbly head quickly diminishing to a ring around the top, with minimal lacing. Complex mixture of sweet fruitiness - cherry, plum, banana, citrus, caramel, and spiciness - coriander and cloves. Kept smelling cheese - new to me for a beer aroma. Sweet fruity malty with bitter sweet finish, medium bodied, oily texture like a thin syrup. Enjoyed this more the first time I had it but still a good one though preferred the Leffe Blond.

bottle from my girlfriend. Good beer with the typical Leffe taste. The red ale smells good with hints of sweet fruits. Good sweet, bitter taste. Enjoyed it

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2009
0.33 L bottle. Rocky white head with excellent laceworks. Bright, reddish-brown color. Peppery, caramellish malts and gently sweet fruits on the nose. Taste is bitter-sweet malty, has a fine spicy and earthy hop bitterness with notes of metal. A discreet fruitiness underneath. Well-bodied. Spiced, bitter-sweet ending. A pretty good one.

This reddish ale is really good. The whole situation of cherry and caramel that u could find out as you taste it will make u feel absolutely super.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 7, 2009
Bottle. Pours a reddish amber with a beige head that quickly dissipates to a ring around the top. Aroma not that strong but nice; notes of toffee, honey and berries. These are also the main elements of the flavour with added brown sugar, cherries and a hint of alcohol. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel and a little sourness on the finish. More well rounded than I remembered and overall very nice.

davidm (2075) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Bottle 330 ml. Nice and sweet Leffe. Aroma is caramel, grain, and dark fruits. Tastes sweet through, with just a bit of bitterness. Colour is amber dark, with a lasting head of average size. Medium bodied, with oily texture.

33cl bottle, dark amber colour, medium white head, caramel aroma with honey, dark fruits and spices notes, sweet flavor with metallic notes, medium body, finish with some alcohol, slight bitterness aftertaste, a surprise is really better than leffe blonde and vieille cuvee that Ive tried some times ago

JanEric (1203) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2009
Ambercoloured, white head, staying for an 0,5 cm. Hints of caramel in the nose, also toffee and especially pepper. Caramel in the taste, some sweets and fruit and hops. Long finish, nice.

edelbrauer (61) - Rgen, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2009
chestnut brown, little, quick disappearing head, fairly inviting, very nice aroma of red fruits, bitter orange, sugar and caramel and cheese. flavor is balanced between sweetness, and dark caramel malts with just a hint of roastiness, that gives a little bitterness. the alcohol is never evident and expertly built in. an inoffensive, balanced and rich brew

SorenE (168) - , NEW ZEALAND - JUL 23, 2009
reddish brown, tan head. sweet aromas of malt, phenols, esters and red berries. same flavors but the berry sort of turns into a lingering chemical bittenress.
