Countbeer (5041) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2011
Bottle: Big airy light white yellow head on top of a clear dark orange to brown colored beer. Smell malts, herbs and a hint of tea. Taste is mostly malts with hints of fruits, hops, bitter, sweets and something like nuts and overripe fruit... Strange mix not too well balanced, but not too bad either. A bitter, light dry and grassy roosvicee kind of aftertaste. Soft mouthfeel, low carbo, low to medium body and a watery creamy texture. Strange beer with a firm bittersweet aftertaste.

psilosophy (542) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - APR 6, 2011
Bouteille de 25cl - appellation "leffe de printemps". Bière rousse avec une mousse honorable de tenue correcte. Très proche en terme de goût de la leffe blonde avec les épices caractéristiques, peut être un poil plus corsée et légèrement caramélisée. Trouvée à Auchan - Noyelle Godault.

77ships (4858) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 4, 2011
bottle@home: labelled as Leffe Bière de Printemps (Lentebier) but this is supposed to be the same beer as Leffe Rossa, completely clear, amber coloured, smells of spices, slightly sweet with some malt, caramel, some burned brown sugar, taste is that of spices with some caramelised malts, burned brown sugar, nuts & blueberry jam with a slight somewhat chemical bitter aftertaste, light bodied, heavy carbonisation, bit better than I expected that it would be

altonbrownd (3708) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - APR 2, 2011
Leffe Biere de Printemps / Lentebier available now easily in Brussels at Carrefour. Dark amber body with huge head. Nose of Leffe malts and bananas. As inviting as ever. Taste yummy with fruits, especially bananas, and a darker malt taste. Nicely balanced. A bit sweet and doughy. Nice texture.

sebletitje (7211) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2011
Bouteille 33cl. Une des rares bières belges de printemps pour un style souvent plus présent chez nos voisins allemands. Couleur rousse, cuivre, col épais blanc. Arôme est assez simple, malt et caramel avec note de fruits et d’épices. Au palais, note de sucre brun, malt pale et cara, fruité pour un fini sec et une fine touche d’épice et d’amertume qui sur la fin. On garde évidemment cette base Leffe qui est distincte pour tous ceux qui en ont déjà bu.

dnstone (2344) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 28, 2011
Pours a nice amber-red with a solid off-white head. Tripel-like spiced aroma. Fairly malty and sweet with light spiced notes.

Somewhat disappointing. Not very memorable. Amber beer that’s supposed to invoke the freshness of Spring.
