Ulysse (298) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 13, 2015
Aroma of breadwheat from the bottle. Then in the glass corn aroma. Are those 2 ingredients used in this brew to save some bucks? In three words: packaging, packaging and... Did i say packaging? The average mass-produced-beer with a nicer packaging...

Birra dal sapore deciso, con note tostate e gusto persistente. Leggero retrogusto amarognolo, comunque piacevole. Dolciastra.

Tombé par hasard sur cette bière dans un carrefour market. 75cl, dans une tulipe La Chouffe. Au nez, c’est de la leffe, au goût c’est de la leffe. Présence du houblon quasi inexistante, et puis le whitbread golding n’est pas vraiment une perle rare. Au final je la trouve même en dessous de ses congénères Leffe Triple et Leffe Radieuse, qui sont du "tout venant" de bonne tenue. Pas terrible, ça se boit mais je ne vais pas courir après...

tbonde (173) - DENMARK - JUN 2, 2015
33cl bottle@Brussels Airport in Leffe glass@approx 6 degrees C. pours clear amber with sufficient white head. The aroma is slightly floral with a malt sweetness and just a hint of yeast. Not much hops comes through.. Taste follows aroma. A little on the sweet and malty side, but much cleaner taste and less sugar-sticky palate than Leffe Blonde. Also the hops comes through more than in the aroma. The alcohol is well balanced and the aftertaste is quite long and again of beer without any unpleasant off tastes. Agree with EdKing who finds the low ratings given by some curious for this beer and share his wonder about how much is affected by the macro ownership because the Leffe Royale is also to me a surprisingly good beer.
