olio (7928) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2013
75 cl bottle @ HBF’13.
Pours clear copper-golden color with a small head. Aroma of ripe fruits, toffee, caramel, alcohol notes, faint apricot, distant wheat notes, some hints of spices and malts. Flavor of toffee, caramel malts, citric fruits, hay, spices and mild syrupy notes at the end. Strong carbonation, sweetish fruity palate. A positive surprise.

Jultsu (311) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2015 eka arvio tehty unpitunnelissa, 2.7 silloin. Kuparinen läpikuultava väri, häipyvä vaahto. Makea tuoksu. Kuohuva alkoholinen suutuntuma, alkoholin poltteinen banaaninen makea jälkimaku. Jälkiruokana voisi toimia ilman mässyäkin. Perus vahva belgiolut.

laiti (7616) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2013
75 cl bottle @ HeBF’13, BBE 18.05.2014
Aroma is sweet with apricot, alcohol, some soapy notes, grain, toffee and caramel. Flavour is sweet with toffee, apricot, some alcohol, peaches and caramel. Too sweet but quite good for a Leffe.

jmm1 (131) - Andorra la Vella, ANDORRA - JUL 13, 2013
From 75cl bottle. Clear dark golden body with a pillow fluffy lasting head that leaves a nice lacing. Floral, bready, ginger, vanilla, banana aromas in nose, with a nice evolution during pouring. Light bitternest, medium sweetness, light sourness. Medium body with a creamy texture and a fizzy carbonation, which is a bit too much for this type of beer. Long, mildly bitter finish with a nice ripe banana tone. Good brew from Leffe, but carbonation needs to be toned down to really enjoy fully the superb complexity of this beer. It could have been a great beer but it is just a quite good one, there is room for improvement anyway and I will keep an eye on it.

EddyBeer1 (1051) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 9, 2013
Dorée foncée allant vers l’ambre, trop d’effervescence au palais, mousse blanche persistante qui tend vers le beige. Notes de caramel, de fruits (banane et pêche), un peu trop sucrée. Trop courte en bouche mais supérieure à l’une de ses petites sœurs, la blonde.

madnorwegian (93) - FRANCE - JUL 6, 2013
An OK beer, nice bright golden appearance. Yeasty aroma with ripe fruit (apples, bananas), almost smells like an apple turnover. A beer to be drunk with a meal, cheeses, charcuterie. The sweetish caramel notes doesn’t make it great as a before-dinner refresher.

Shaney (2425) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2013
Leffe Royale aus der Edel-Schampus-Pulle, wo ich mir doch immer einbilde, dass dieses Gebinde mehr Geschmack abgibt als die 0,33 Flaschen. Bernsteinfarben, entfernt trüb, üppige Schaumbildung, gut. Ein Karamell-Fudge-Hefe-Waldbeeren-Aroma, das mit längerer Standzeit immer etwas wechselt. Schön vollmundiger Antrunk. Süß-fruchtiger Start nach Vanille und Banane, wird dann würziger (Koriander?) und auch leicht holzig, klingt angenehm harzig hopfig aus. Für Leffe solls rote Rosen regnen, ein Fest von einem Bier. Auf nach Dinant!!

jesperhammer (3545) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2013
27-JUN-2013, bottle @home, from Fish & Beer. Clear golden with lasting white, lacing head. Nice aroma of yeast, overripe apples, spice, banana, toast. Taste the same with some alcohol and a bitterness that I am not so fond of. Medium body or above with quite some sweetness and medium carbonation. Finish is malty and sweet. Long, though. Nice drink.

Lekker biertje. Goed aroma met een mooie mengeling van honing en wat kruiden. Vol mondgevoel. Prachtige fles.
