Bottled, thanks Bov! Clear amber, rich head. Metallic blueberry aroma. Sweet with clean, oily mouthfeel and medium body. Fruity with treacle and marzipan, notes of boiled vegetables. Syrupy finish with banana and resin. A poorly brewed belgian ale is not much better than a poorly brewed pale lager.

Drank fron a 75cl bottle. Best one from Leffe brewery! Its a lot like the Leffe Blomd, but in every detail a bit better.

gEUS (890) - Linden, BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2014
Ok here it goes. 3 x 330 ml bottle. Side by Side Leffe Royale - Nectar & Triple. Royale: pours deep yellow with fizzy head. Nose is clearly spices (cardamom & cloves). Medium body with low carbonation and high sweetness. Evades extremely quickly. Taste is undefined, but it is surely bland and superficiaL. 1.7/5 Triple: Pours light to hay yellow with white hue. Thin white head. Nose is lightly malty, some yeast but lots of alcohol. Medium body, watery feeling, too much booze. Taste is cloves and eucalyptus. 1.5/5 Nectar: malt, caramel in the nose, clear golden, creamy tiny head. Body is sweet sweet sweet with a tiny sour note due to unbalance with the light body. Bland finish. Taste is a bit of malt and lots of cane Sugar. 1.8/5 All in all, these beers confirmed my prejudices: bland as from the beginning (filtered, pasteurised etc... I actually miss a real beer flavour and aroma). Poured them all.

Drunk from 75cl bottle bought in Brussels. Pleasant tasting variant of Leffe blonde but not hugely different. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nigos (630) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2014
Golden hue with a large creamy white head. Yeasty, malty nose. Flavour is yeasty with banana hints and a reason bitter after taste. Very similar to leffe blonde.

DomPiwa (29) - FRANCE - DEC 28, 2013
A very distinguished and noble bottle from which pours a 22 caret gold coloured liquid. A rich foamy head which persists. A slightly malty and floral nose. Slightly sticky on the tongue but not overly so. A pleasant fairly bitter bite with floral hints and residual slightly malty taste. An enjoyable beer.

POLK (1944) - Hrning, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2013
Chewing gum aroma from the yeast. Candy-like Belgian strong ale with a good taste to esters, and vanilla.
