Barwa ciemnozłota, wpadająca w bursztyn, klarowne, z gęstą pianą. Aromat typowy dla "belga", owocowy, przyprawowy. W smaku owowce, banan, nieco szampanowate, ogólnie smakuje mi.

Barwa głębokiego złota, piana intensywna, ładna i trwała. Aromat trochę przypomina szampana, owoce i karmel. W smaku lekko słodkie i dość puste - karmel, landrynki i niska goryczka na finiszu.

rauchbier (3765) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2016
Bottle, from Beer in a Bottle, Beverley. Orange gold, fluffy white but quickly reducing head and good condition. Typical sweet estery leffe nose with a hint of yeastiness and a vague suggestion of hop, full and ester sweet in the mouth, like a concentrated Leffe Blonde, some muted chalkiness provides a little bitterness but any hops are pushed way into the background, finish is sticky sweet, yeasty and fruity esters all the way with only a suggestion of hop bitterness lingering, retronasal alcohol reminds you again thats its probably just a stronger version of the bog standard Leffe.

ForlornHope (372) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2016
Big bottle at home. Pours amber in colour with a white head and laces well on the glass. Typical Leffe aroma of vanilla, spice and yeast. I do not detect much hop. Taste is sweet with some balancing dryness. More spice and vanilla in the flavour with a dry finish. Quite sticky and overall a bit too sweet. Inoffensive bordering on dull.

jookos (5141) - FINLAND - APR 16, 2016
Bottle. Amber colour, crystal clear. Bit unky stuffy nose. Hops, autunny leafy old, caramels, dry toffee on nose. Med bodied, bitters, malty old socky finish. Ok.. Sort of. Dont like the old malty feel here, and Im guessing it dont matter how fresh the bottle be. Feels bulky clean. Like thw belgy touch tho.

R4N5H (689) - NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2016
33cl bottle on 27-Feb-2016, poured into a long stemmed tulip glass. Golden colour with a medium sized white head. Aroma of yeast, grass and malt. Sweet bread flavour, banana, malt and caramel. Some clove, spices. Very similar to the blonde ale. Fruity, just a little stronger. Nice though.

sir__v (1859) - Lille, FRANCE - MAR 28, 2016
Bottle from Supermarket - Color: clear golden blond beer with high carbonation and medium white foam. Smell: caramel malt, honey, bread and yeast. Taste: medium body with caramel malt and really sweet taste. Honey notes. Balanced with herbal hops with still sweet taste. Not well balanced. Difficult to enjoy and to drink. Aftertaste: caramel and alcohol. Not really interesting.

JoeMcPhee (9244) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2016
Golden pour. Sweet Belgian malt aroma. There is a touch of herbal hop aroma on the nose with some light banana and apricot yeast estery notes. A touch of woodiness on the finish with a touch of soft sweetness. It’s not unpleasant but nothing really stands out about it either.

Subliminal64 (84) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2016
Smells like a typical Belgian ale, only not as potent. Pours a dark gold. Head that lasts to the end. Taste is that of a Belgian double, only not as sweet and with a bit of a bitter aftertaste. Right amount of carbonation. Overall I was happy with this beer, although I will not be going out of my way to purchase in the future. I have one cellaring right now, so we will see in a few years.
