A marketing product that doesn’t add much to the already vast spectrum of beers from Leffe. Not a bad beer, but not the best they can do. A bit sweet too much.

freretoc (1070) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 10, 2015
Bue à la pression en 50cl acheté au Bar de l’U bu au Scénacle, couleur ambrée/pourpre, mousse moyenne et peu d’effervesence, une bière avec une attaque sur le sucre candy très forte et sur le grain fin de bouche sur la levure caractéristique de le Leffe.

Pours a clear copper ish with a creamy off white head. Strong yeast aroma. Taste is an initial bitter with no real finish.

ManVsBeer (5461) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Keg @ De Kuppe, Brugge. Called Printemps Lentebier. Clear cherry-red colour with a small bubbly head. The cherry is evident but light and it’s a fairly refreshing fruity beer with its strength not really evident.

Alengrin (3019) - BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2014
Tasted as Leffe Rossa in Venice in 2004 and as Leffe Bière de Printemps / Lentebier when it was put on the Belgian market under that name in 2011. Perfectly equal, off-white, creamy head, light amber colour, clear with calm sparkling. Pasteurized smell, caramelly malts, bit nutty, molasses, meat broth, biscuit, tulips, tomato, mango, smoked bacon. Caramelly taste, slick with rather thin body, floral and honeyish, sweetish, strongish carbo, fairly straightforward and boring like the other Leffes. Slight hop bitterness in the finish as well as badly hidden alcohol. Another industrial, ’dead’ AB InBev product.

Een bier met een beetje een speciale smaak, sommigen zullen dit lekker vinden, maar ik vond het niet zo goed.

iguana cantina in venice. Rosy Reddish brown ale with a good off white head and good lacing. Banana and other fruit on the nose. Taste is slightly sour and bitter, but quite sweet too. Carb is slightly prickly with medium body. Good.

jspronck (139) - BELGIUM - MAY 10, 2014
clear amber/ruby color with generous off-white head, fine bubbles, aromas of fruit (plums and cherries) and malt, after taste of bubblegum, medium sweetness, slightly astringent, it’s an okay beer but lacks aroma and flavor

kingstoni (1684) - FINLAND - APR 18, 2014
Bottle as Lentebier. Clear pale amber color with a thin head. Aroma of caramel, ripe banana and sugary yeast. Sweet and slightly sour taste. Medium bitterness. Medium thin body.

Une leffe qui laisse à désirer elle a comme un goût d’herbes qui plutôt désagréable et cet arrière goût reste assez longtemps
