An unclear orange-brown beer with a huge fluffy light brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with quite a lot of fruit combined with a dusty hop note. The flavor is sweet malty and very fruity, leading to a dry bitter end that also encompasses a dusty hop note.

(Bottle 25 cl) Courtesy of henrikb. Pours a very cloudy reddish brown with a tall, somewhat rough beige head. Fresh and fruity - apples - aroma. Medium body with a sweet and somewhat unclean malt profile. Roasted, lightly tart maltiness without much bitterness. Rather heavily carbonated. An odd brew. 181106

Koelschtrinker (18749) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Der Geruch erinnert mich an eine Wiese. Das Bier ist wrzig und beraus aromatisch, dennoch in einigen Teilen recht mild. Es ist schwer zu beschreiben, da das Bier ein ganz eigenes Aroma hat. Test vom 15.6.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 13,9,10,10,4,10 - 9,85

yngwie (16763) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle. It pours a clear, dark reddish brown body under a small, light beige head. Dried fruits, brown sugar, yeast hints and a spiced touch on the nose. A touch of malts too. The flavor is sugary and fruity, with a touch of spices. Thin on the palate, low on carbonation. Fruity and sugary finish, dried fruits more than fresh fruits. Some goods things here, but not impressing in any way. 111126

Bottled at the Belgian Embassy in Oslo. A bit unclear, brown body, topped by a beige head. Caramel-sweet nose with roasted malt as well. Sweet flavor too, with caramel and a weak spicyness. Medium body and a sweet finish with some caramel and spices. I think this is the best of the Leireken series, the others I sampled were a bit too special. (070103)
