3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A deep gold color, very clear with a small white head. A sweet malt scent with toast and yeast tones. Some spice in the nose but not to the extent of the other Leffe offerings. Candi sugar and yeasty flavors, not the spicey fruitiness expected from the style. A bit acidic but a nice feel. A decent brew but not up there with the top notch Belgian Ale's IMHO.

Crystal clear light amber with a medium diminishing white head. Nice yeasty aroma of pepper, banana, clove, citrus and dough. Medium light watery body with lively carbonation. Smooth and refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gentle yeasty bread aroma with some just noticeable citrus. Ok looking gold colour with a head that didn't last long. Flavour starts off malty sweet with passable side notes of banana & yeast(bottle needs to have been kept well to retain these) but looses any character by the end. Quite good drinking not too thin.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours a crystal clear gold amber with a monster head and much Belgian lace; this beer looks perfect. The aroma is of fresh bread, but mild. The flavor is sweet, slightly spicy, bread like, and just overall mild and rounded with nothing really sharp or pronounced with a decent body. Overall, this is refreshing, mild, and an easy drinking Belgian. However, it lacks in character.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Has a very smooth and distinct sweet flavor. It leaves a nice aftertaste. Also good with food as does not give you a heavy feeling.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2004 Deep golden colour. Good heavy mouth-feel with sweet and fruity flavor. It's nice enough to have ONE every once in a while. Better with food than on its own.
