Sweet almost to the point of being sickly. Nonetheless it is a tasty strong lager.

For some reason I really want ot like this beer. I buyit often and each time find myself upset by the burnt-sour taste that stays in my mouth troughout drinking it. Itís a very pretty beer, but I think that Iím done with it.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2004 Second review 9/19/04
I had a few of these babies in Spain this summer, and, well, it is not the most Belgian of beers, but I find it quite drinkable and smooth. Upgraded.
Served in a 330cl bottle. Smelled like a Belgian beer -- kind of rich and somewhat fruity and malty, but the taste was very light and fairly indistinctive. It has an amber color and the head poured pretty full, but died soon after. The carbonation was light and the mouth feel nice. It had a pleasant finish with a small hint of hops. A drinkable beer, but not a great representation of a Belgian beer.

This beer was very similar to the Affligem. The only discernible difference between the two was the aroma. The Leffe was a bit more bitter smelling. The taste was sweet on the back of the tongue and the head was thin out of the bottle.

gold color, darker than íblondí might suggest. wheaty aroma, lemon, some malt and yeast. disappointing taste of wheat and yeast, not much complexity apart from the malt and yeast. not a beer that iíll drink again soon...

The Belgians do have a certain way with beer. Nice, sweet, tasty flavour. A change from lagers, good variation.

bottle. pours a semi clear dark yellow with a giant fluffy white head. butter and yeast aroma. belgian light is the phrase that comes to mind. small intricate flavors hit my tongue: raisin, pepper, and toffee. nice bit of bitter on the finish.

Bottle. Gold with a very thick foamy white head. Smells like clove and banana. Very mild Belgian taste. The banana flavor that I donít like is there, but it is somewhat subdued. This is nice.
