Ambra rosso con schiuma biancastra. Al naso malto e caramello. Al palato � maltata e dolce con caramello, dark fruits. Corposa e mediamente carbonata. Benters (11) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2017
Pours a slightly hazy amber/red with average carbonation. Aroma of caramel, plums, raisins, lightly roasted malt, alcohol with slight spiciness. Tastes of dark berry fruits, caramel...quite sweet. Gentle carbonation sparkle. Medium bodied. Left with cloying sweetness. Okay, but not great....won’t be rushing back to drink this again. XKGhost (14) - Bonate Sopra, ITALY - AUG 11, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2017 Strong citrus fruit taste, coupled with powerful amber color. First time in a supermarket, bottled. Bitek (725) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 10, 2017
Kolendra, pomarańcze, nieco owocowych estrów, słodka słodowość. W aromacie taki trochę imperialny witbier. Średnio treściwe, słodkawe, na finiszu pikantna przyprawowość. Wysokie wysycenie, niska goryczka. stupre (402) - Nanterre, FRANCE - AUG 7, 2017
33cl bottle. Robe rubis avec belle mousse beige. Notes de fruits rouges très mûrs et de vanille.

Appearance is amber with brown and ruby tinges, a half-finger beige head which quickly dissipates. Aroma- malty, raisin, plum hints, cherry, hint of vanilla, bread. Taste- dark fruits, cherry, fruitcake, plenty of malt, bitter hops, almond, marzipan, quite a full and juicy mouthfeel, bitter lengthy finish. ozzatoadisback (177) - ITALY - AUG 2, 2017
Pours dark amber with a thin slightly off-white head that shows ok retention and good lacing. Aroma is caramel, fruity hints (candied orange most noticeable) and slight spiciness. Overall quite subdued. Taste follows the aroma (again not too bright) with dominant but not over the top sweetness and a bit of an unpleasant earthy/muddy feel. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation, very much classic mouthfeel per style. Mediocre. DraftDodger (1569) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2017 Larnaka 23/7 2017. 33 cl bottle from Alpha Hypermarket at the outskirts of Larnaka. The usual Leffe design with a purple stripe. Pours clear amber with big yellowish head. Settles as 1,5 cm thick layer of fluffy foam. Moderate Lacing. Aroma is earthy and with notes of humid cellar. A little caramel and toffee. Fairly sweet with a candy-ikke quality. Medium carbonation and quite thick, sluggish palate. Flavor is heavy sweet without very much bitterness present. Aftertaste is sugary marcipan with some lingering boozy alcohol. A very sweet bomb of a beer. Very fulfilling - and I am quite glad that I only got a small bottle. Inbreak (6209) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2017
