Japalo (1122) - DENMARK - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle @ Brussels airport. Golden clear. Half finger foam. Faint malty notes. Some basement yeasty. Nice smooth blended brew in balance. Thought it to be more alcoholic. Wheat brew like. Suprised by this commercialized beer.

suprchunk (2101) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Golden amber colored pour. Big white head that quickly falls to a solid finger’s worth. Some lacing. Big aroma of malt, yeast, and bananas. Taste is a nice fruity banana flavor with some alcohol notes. Finishes sweet, yet dry. Not bad.

jaghana (3750) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - JUL 9, 2012
Bottle 33cl, a clear copper beer with huge head and good retention. Nose is on agrume with spicy notes. Aroma is malty and caramel like with lemon and banana notes as well as coriander, sweet with a round hopy finish and caramel notes. Not a bad one, typical Leffe nose and yeast, body a bit too thin.

MADpalace (200) - Budel, NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2012
Amber/orange/yellow with an off-white head. Very light smell of hops and some sweetness; not very impressive. Nice fresh (not to bitter) taste with wide range of flavours: nuts, oak, banana, warm, tea, spicy. Nice summers beer if you like the sweeter/warmer flavours but still want the freshness in that time of the year.

hoju777 (144) - FRANCE - JUL 6, 2012
33cl black bottles from Monoprix. Classy like Freixenet. 3 euros more for a six pack of regular Leffe blond. Can’t really smell much. Smells like regular Leffe. Looks like beer. Nice and thick but no flavor. Weird lack of flavor. I am confused. Maybe it tastes like Grimbergen or Affligem. How disappointing.

sebletitje (6594) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 5, 2012
33cl, orangée/dorée, col blanc léger. Arôme a ce bouquet typique de Leffe, dans les styles abbaye, moyennement fruitée avec un fin profile houblonné. En bouche, profile typique Leffe, alcool plus présent sur le me^me houblon et levure , léger fruité et citronné avec une fine douceur au fini. Rien de nouveau dans le style, une Leffe normale avec un alcool revu la hausse. Reste banale dans le grand style des grandes productions InBev, bref, on s’ennuie profondément et les moines s’en retourneraient dans leurs tombes.

stevoj (2016) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Hazy deep amber/golden with a rich , thick off-white head. Nose smells of yeasty and spices (coriander?) and banana. Taste is sweet and slightly bitter. Medium/light body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Banana and gummi bears on palate (almost like a hefe). Sweet and bitter finish. Nice!
