Moderate tan head on top of a cloudy reddish brown beer. Aroma of fruits (apples, grape, brown sugar, caramel. Tasted pleasant, variety of fruits and sweet malts, although not overly as complex as others, light bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

Nice deep red colour with foamy off white head that creates a wonderful lacing. Flavor is complex with both sweet and bitterness included. Medium body with dry texture.

Clear brown color and a huge head. Yeasty tones amidst a malty body. Vanilla flavors and a spicy end (cloves?). Maybe a little toffee tucked away in the middle. Full mouth feel and a creamy texture. Good smooth drinking beer.

Can't look at the label without thinking of the beer machine that was in the warehouse I once worked in - had Leffe sticker prominantly placed on it. Might even have had one loaded in it at some point. Not my favored Belgian, but a great launching place in my beer geekifikashun.
