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 (6624) - 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 (2137) - 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.

txspartan (965) - Wilrijk, BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2011
Somewhat disappointing. Not very memorable. Amber beer that’s supposed to invoke the freshness of Spring.
