Had on draft at local pub. Clear golden yellow with a small head. Aroma was a bit of banana some light maltiness and yeastiness. Flavor was light maltiness with a belgian yeastiness. Medium bodied with a slight yeast aftertaste. This is a very refreshing belgian ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2005 Bottle Pours a light brown, golden color with a large fluffy white head. Blocky lacing adhears to the sides. Classic belgian, light spice notes. Some yeasty, slightly musty aromas as well. Flavors are about what I expected, light malts and easy on the hops. Light fruit flavors, maybe a little banana and bubble-gum. Quite lively carbonation and a fairly bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle, BB 25APR05. Pours a very fizzy yellow...smells of banana, maybe a touch of orange...drinks with some light malt, a dose of yeasty fruitiness, and a dry, slightly bitter finish. Pretty decent beer...sorta like a really good paint by the numbers "artist" nothing special or original by any means, but drinkable and enjoyable to some degree.

My favourite Leffe. Simple as that. The Tripel is good, but this is better.
An easy drinking Abbey beer, you can’t ask for more.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2005 For my money, this is the best of Leffe’s range. It’s dangerously drinkable. Poured the colour of golden syrup with a big foaming head that left plenty of lace. The nose is ripe and summery. Hints of ripening hay, bubble gum, yeast, cookie-like malt and plenty of alcohol. It’s firm and succulent at the front of the mouth with a fine juicy berry middle and a surprisingly light footprint. It’s not especially complex but solid drinking all the same. (Bottle)

Bottle. i dont know if this one was almost infected ? Clear golden color with foamy white head that leaves some lacing on the glass. Yeast and detergent aroma. Taste of yeast and sugar.
Je pense que cette bière etait sur le point ou peut etre qu elle commencait a etre infecter. De couleur doré avec de belles petites bubulles et un collet blanc mousseux qui colle au verre. Odeur de levure et de détergent. Au gout, elle était sucré et goutait la levure, très ordinaire, a réessayer.
