More amber than the standard Leffe. Pours a creamy top that lasts a while. Definitely less sweet, although there is the typical stickiness at the end. More hops and bitterness but ruined by the caramel and alcohol sensation that comes up.

JulienHuxley (5423) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle from Jumbo. Clear gold pour, lacy white head. Aroma is grainy, fruity, passion fruit, grains of paradise, light musty malt aroma. Taste is sweet, fruity, light boozy finish. Palate is med bodied with med-full carbonation. Decent.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden. Refreshing beer but not that exciting. A bit dull imo.

rand (1460) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 14, 2014
Bouteille 33 cl de boissons Center - Montagny (CH). Rousse dorée à belle mousse crème stable, dentelles au verre. Arômes doux, fruités et épicés, caramel et levure, girofle, banane et vanille. Comme au goût, épicé de levure, on y retrouve les arômes, avec de l’orange, du miel et une pointe poivrée. Le houblon est présent, herbacé avec du zeste. Bonne bière.

Aroma: Oranges, peachy, malt, hint of cheese Appearance: Gold, clear, fine bubble white head, medium lace, very soft carbonation Taste: Seems a little milder malt taste as the blond, but same somewhat character, malty, bit oranges, bit dry ending

Biere de base mais pas trop mauvaise... Beau packaging mais peu différente des autres Leffe... A boire en soirée avec un certain budget ;)

Je ne peux pas dire qu’elle soit mauvaise car... elle ne goute rien d’autre que de l’eau sucrée. Typique de la brasserie.

330ml bottle bought at Belgian Beer International in Tsuen Wan.

Clear amber colour with no yeast sediments; Three-quarter finger head and soapy off white foam which lasts for 1 minute; Moderate sticky lacing and notable slight carbonation; Quite fragrant aroma of banana, vanilla, caramel, sugar, malt, light cloves and light alcohol; Mid to light sweet taste of light malt, with molasses, light alcohol, light caramel, hint of dark fruits, soda water, liquorices, lime and light grass; Mid to light body, quite slick palate; Mouth feel is like a hollow, boozed-up version of Leffe Blonde, with close to medium body but feel kinda thin, not malty enough, almost soda like; It has nearly no fruity taste, saved some dark fruit hints. Fairly sweet, light but sharp booze, low Bel yeast, unusual bitter hops, not a very balanced brew. Oh… Hoppiness is no nose, with lime and potent bitter hops in taste. Liquorices is quite strong for a lasting, sharp bitter finish; Fairly dry after taste, sweet and astringent to mouth.

Comments: This is a below-average BSA and rather poor offering by Leffe. Other than some decent estery and spicy aroma, its thin body, low maltiness, near zero fruity taste, boozy, sweet unbalanced by sharp bitter hops. On the same level with Palm Royale, and that means, not good.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Clear golden pour, thick white, long-lasting head. Tripel-style aromas, light spice, honey and spicy yeast. Taste is more sweety than anything, alcohol noticeable. Sticky finish. Not bad.

Shark_Pants (561) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 27, 2014
Pours quite a nice deep burnt orange colour. Aroma is quite spicy with a bit of funky Belgian yeast, not much else of note. Taste is bread, banana, coriander, fairly sweet, dries out a little in the finish. Not terrible at all but the appearance is the highlight for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
