3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale colour with a very large-bubbled head. Good smell, not too much going on, but definately not bad. Bland taste, once again, no complexities...but an all-around decent beer. Noticabley heavy bodied for a beer this light, but good to try at least once. Tasted on Tap at MacGregor's in Rochester, New York.

a very light belgain. good flavor but wasn't impressed by the color. i didn't think there was a fizzy yellow belian, but at least it was still a quality beer.

Nothing too special. Not too much complexity here. A little bland for it's style, but still drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale golden, large quick-declining head. Aroma musty, yeasty, somewhat weak, little fruit; reminds me a bit of a German pils, actually. Very sweet an malty flavor, hints of pepper & alchol, more than I'd expect with this low ABV, very soft, some bitterness towards the end. Nothing really stands out.

A few of these and you'll be speaking Belge. A succulent crisp flavour with light overtones of sweet fruit at the finish. Could easily drink these until I dropped. A real refresher. I'm now looking forward to sampling it's darker brother!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. A medium to dark golden color with a foamy white head. A nice candy bubblegum flavor with a pleasant spice in the aroma and flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Super clear honey-colored. Sweet, yeasty, and the ABV will sneak up on you. Good mouthfeel, but I needed to scour the sweetness with a decent Brit IPA. Good but not terribly remarkable. My non-afficianado business associate really dug this one, so I've got to agree with the commercial statement regarding its wide-ranging appeal.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2006 introduced to me by a belgian friend 3 years ago. A really good bear for all occasions. But probably the least of all Leffe´s ..
this was one of the beers that got me hooked on belgian beer, and later real macro beer. This review is based on the bottled version. The draught version is pretty good, but this is just too simple, there is plenty of vanilla, and there´s a decent try regarding spices and malt but it fails. Unbalanced, overhyped is the verdict. Decent but nothing else
