3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose of honey and orange. Enduring, head tops the amber beer. A pleasant drinker with light, yeasty notes, a decent hop bite and a mellow mouth-feel.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2009 had on tap which was slightly better than my previous experience with the bottled version. This is full-flavored, yet still nice and light and makes for a refreshing treat. cloudy with strong yeast aroma. sweet taste with hints of straw and barley. pleasant finish with mild bitterness. definitely more fruit (citrus, pear, pineapple) when drinking on tap

Golden straw coloured with white head and thin lacing. Smells spicy, clove, and some faint hops. Rich spicy taste, plum, raisin, and malt. Long lightly hopped finish. Very nice

Nose is sweet and yeasty, maybe some hay? Nice opaque light orange color, wtih fizzing bubbles. Small bubbly head. Some sweetness with a nice bite in the end. Fizzy and warm feeling in the mouth. Nice blond.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Straw yellow in color, decent head of small bubbles. Great lacing and tons of bubbles coming up from the bottle. Looked super D duper. Sweet aroma and yeasts. The taste was like sugar cooked onto a slightly raw piece of fresh bread. As it warmed, bits of alcohol came out. Solid.

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.
