Bottle at Funchal (local supermercado, 3.15€, BB 12/2010)dutchbeerpages (2439) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2010
Clear deep amber color, steady creamy beige head, lace. Sticky wood, grass, berries and caramel with light alcohol in the nose. Medium-bodied. Harsh, alcoholic, caramel, gooseberries, redcurrant. Kind of more alcoholic version of Leffe Rossa.
Interesting flavor experience. Starts sweet and slightly metallic, but then goes round the mouth and warms it. Back to skating now GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2010
Bottle from a Leffe giftpack. Ruby-amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is fairly generic as far as strong Belgian ales go - notes of yeast, dried fruit, spice, all pleasant but very nondescript. Flavour is similarly enjoyable - nice candi sugar sweetness, a yeasty/spicy tang, mild boozy heat and pleasing bitterness in the finish - but ultimately, it’s not an especially memorable beer. note666 (1316) - Eindhoven, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2010
2020-02-09 330 ml bottle. bright red-amber colour. off white head. taste is bit disapointing, not as good as i hoped.... jonno (3011) - JAPAN - JAN 29, 2010
A great into for novices in to belgian beers as it forgoes the belgian spicy yeast, though is a little plainer for it. A multinational abbey it checks all the boxes without highlighting them. Sweet and smooth.

Pours reddish amber with a fluffy cream coloured head. Aroma is yeasty, fruity, and not overly strong or interesting. Great mouthfeel, full bodied, tingles the back of your tongue. Flavour is fairly rich in character, and interesting, but not my favourite.
This rating is slightly biased, I was drinking initially out of a Chimay glass and a piece of metal from the rim chipped off in my mouth giving it a horrible taste. I switched glasses and it was better, but my first impression was tainted. Regardless, Leffe Brune is a better beer for me. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2010
Clear dark brown (all right, amber), small instantly dissipating head.
Aroma of forest fruits, some hops and some spices, lightly alcoholic.
Unexpected full flavour of smoke, forest fruits, hops, malts, some spices an alcohol, sweet start, lightly bitter finish. Lasting after taste of smoke and fruits. Different, but not really interesting. delnoche (516) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - JAN 24, 2010
33cl bottle poured into a Leffe chalice. Sparkling amber brown with two fingers off-white head. Aroma is biscuit, candy sugar, spices. Flavor has notes of cherries, caramel, biscuit, slight alcohol. Very nice. Finish is slightly bitter. Enjoyable beer. HermanW (1069) - Coevorden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2010
0,3 liter fles. Toch een lekker biertje ondanks het hoge percentage alcohol.
