Pours a prune-juice like colour topped by a nice thick head. Aroma and taste are dominated by fruits with alcohol hints. Nice fruity long lasting after taste. Alcohol level is 8.2% but it felt around 5.5% when i drank the beer. It goes down quite easily and is very pleasant to drink. Another wonderful beer by Leffe

Nice head thick bubbly rich and creamy head, great tan color. Great thick body with a nice brown/amber color. good prune like aroma a little spicy. Very good flavor fruity with hints of cherry and orange zest. A tinny bit of roasted spice in the end kind of port like in the Finnish. A very strong ale butt easy to drink!

The beer pours that deep ruby brown color that I love; the beige head is greathearted, with fine lace that clings mightily to the glass. Nose is malt, fruit sweet, hint of plums? Sweet malt start, with a skinny top, middling carbonation, hop spicy, very dry long lasting aftertaste. Complex flavors, and a quite interesting beer to say the least.

Wow, I really enjoyed this beer. Dark and rich prune juice appearance...(forgive the analogy and any unpleasant associations). Aroma and flavors of dark ripe fruit; plums, raisins, prunes, yeasty spiciness and alcohol interplay with the senses. Hops subtly but effectively balance out the equation. Outstanding brew that paired perfectly with a delicious, rare steak. A nice find on tap this past weekend in Toronto.

Its OK, but like the other Leffe brews i've tried its perhaps a bit sweet, still drinakble and a decent body, pretty good.
