Towey1989 (1505) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear deep golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of honey, some sweet grain, slight Belgian yeast and subtle floral hops. Taste of honey, sweet grain, slight caramel, a little Belgian yeast and subtle floral hops. Light bodied and an oily texture. A dryish, honeyed, floral hop bitterness in the finish. The honey is too overused in this beer, it makes it too sweet and sickly and I prefer the other flavours come through more. Disapointing.

Ladna zlota barwa i obfita biala piana. Niestety zapach bardzo ulotny slodkawy. W smaku dominuje natomiast miod i tylko miod. Slodycz zabija to niezle piwo.

A nice, clear, gold colored beer with a nice, firm, white layer of foam. Itís aroma contains the sweetness of the honey, but in the background it still contains the smokey "Leffe" feature. Unfortunately, the taste contains to much of the honey, and this overrules the other tastes. In my opinion, itís aftertaste is also way to sweet. Too bad... Een mooi helder, goudkleurig bier met een mooie, stevige kraag. In het aroma, is het honingzoete volop aanwezig. Maar op de achtergrond zit nog het typische, rokerige "leffe" kenmerk. In de smaak is de honing helaas te overheersend. Dit verdrukt de rest van de smaken. Ook de nasmaak is in mijn ogen nog veel te zoet. Jammer.

75cl bottle, poured into a stemmed tulip glass on 18-Dec-2015. Clear golden colour, with a big white head. Aroma of sweet malt, yeast and honey. Rich body and medium carbonation. Sticky mouthfeel, lots of yeast and honey. Sticky mead like beer - too sweet to be enjoyable.

Bright clear gold beer, big fluffy white head. Palate is light, semi dry and has a fine crispness. An overly sweet floralness leads to a good dose of honey that starts to cloy a bit. Some sweet fruits underneath. Semi dry finish. A beer that wants to be a mead. Bleh!

dogbomb (1143) - ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle. Yellow ale with a thick cloud of a head. A big nostrilful can pull honey scents, but itís very miled. Mostly belgian style malts. Taste is quite sweet. Quite honey. A little "artificial" and the beer struggles to cut through it. A shame really, because regular leffe is quite delightful.

Een zeer lekkere honingbiertje, een diepe honingsmaak, niet al te gezoet. Best wel vlug te drinken.

dj (556) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2015
Bottle, 750ml. A golden colour with a large white head. A honeycomb aroma with some floral and soft citrus notes. Flavour has lots of cloying, artificial honey and some malt evident, a little elderflower in the finish. High carbonation. Over sweet and artificial, another Iíll be sticking to the original blonde and brune from now on, these new additions are terrible.

Bottle from Morrisons. Aroma is honey. Taste is sweet. Fizzy and a bit oily. A bit sickly.
