3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a chalice glass, this beer showed a large white head and a beautiful orange color. The aroma was floral with a heavy yeast overtone, as with most Belgian ales. The taste is very smooth, with a medium sweetness. Full bodied, creamy, with an almost sticky mouth feel. Nice, long finish.
I have a love-hate relationship with Belgian ales. I often love them at first taste, but eventually find them cloying. Also, I also do not care for the overpowering taste of the yeast used in Belgian ales. But they are very smooth, and if the sugar and yeast could be toned down, they would be among my favorites.
FYI - for those who are not aware, Leffe is not a Trappist ale, nor is it brewed by an abbey. It is brewed by Stella Artois under license of the Leffe Abbey.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden colour with thick persistent white head. Sweet aroma of bread and banana. Medium bodied and effervescent. A little sweet on the palate to start, however it dries out nicely with the carbonation and a touch of alcohol warmth. Not much bitterness, but still refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur dorée limpide, mousse moyennement abondante et de tenue correcte. Classique parmi les classiques, une parfaite introduction au monde de la bière belge. Arômes épicés avec de la coriandre et de clous de girofle et une touche de banane. Peu complexe mais ronde et bien équilibrée. Carbonnation assez fine. Trouvée à intermarché - Montigny en Gohelle.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Pours a clear full shade of yellow with an off-white head. (Surprised to see it’s filtered.) Notes of clove, honey, light wet rock on the nose. Sweeter than I was expecting, it kind of comes across like a too sweet, underhopped tripel. Up front, sultana raisins, light honey, light mineral notes that turn into more nondescript sweetness, with light mineral hops, and clove in the finish. Very one dimensional. It’s like Belgian beer for beginners.

Growler, beautiful amber beer, skiff of foam. Aroma is apple cider, peach. Taste is apples, pineapple, cloves, some bitter citrus. Finish is sweet, but it sticky and cloying. Palate is smooth, but not thick. Carbonation is good, fine bubbles. Overall, I like this, especially as a holiday beer.
