Pyobon (954) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 3, 2014
(Bottle) Slightly hazy golden amber with ridiculous white foamy head. Pleasant, fairly subtle aroma of estery yeast with hints of peppery spice. Medium body with pleasant carbonation. Some fruitiness at the start along with caramel and honey. Peppery spice develops and grows into a rather harsh bitter finish. Odd beer: harsh bitterness does not fit well with other softer interesting Belgian flavours.

Amber color beer with a nice white head. Smells spicy and fruity. Taste is also sweet fruity, spicy and slightly bitter.

Altra birra che delude. Come l’altra Leffe, la 9, ha un aroma discreto ed un aspetto decente. Ma all’aroma, di lievito e frutta, oltre che di agrumi, corrisponde una birra eccessivamente frizzante per la pochezza del.corpo. sapore vago di malto w agrumi, appena accentuati. Non riscontro la chiusura calda che servirebbe. Pessima birra per le premesse fatte.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2014 Fine taste, fine smell. Correct foam. Well balanced taste. Like a stronger normale leffe or Palm, Missing something like an expicite character. It?s not a top 10 beer but still one to drink more often

Belle couleur dorée; petite mousse blanche; arômes fruités moyennement agréables; goût malté et un peu sucré (trop ?); l’alcool se fait légèrement sentir

Beese (2035) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
Draught at La Brasserie, Bergerac on 21 August. Poured a clear, deep golden, with a thin, but dense white head. Aroma of honey, tinned fruit and Leffe yeast. Some grassy hop in the flavour, with a little toasted malt and golden syrup. Finish was peaches, grain and straw.

It was just a matter of time before AB InBev was to decide to seize on the new ’tripel hop’ hype in Belgian specialty beers. This, in 2012, was the result: AB InBev’s answer to the new wave of strongly hopped blonde Belgian ales. It has a moussy, very stable and sticky, cream white head and a colour of ’old gold’, clear with relatively active sparkling. Artificial and, as always with Leffe, very ’cooked’ pasteurized smell, impressions of boiled rice, wheat, burnt vegetables, honey, iron, cake, smoky bourbon, chicken broth and tobacco, but very little noble hoppiness. Fruity and metallic onset, medium carbonation, light and slick, caramelly with sweetish corn, something meaty as in Leffe 9° and some faint grassy hops in the finish - but not a trace of the firm and elegant hoppiness of the beers it is inspired by, not surprising in view of AB InBev’s tactic of making beer which offends as few consumers as possible. Instead, I get bourbon-like, not too well hidden alcohol.

Mooi amberkleurig bier, mooie volle kraag. Kruidige moutgeur, smaak van kruiden mout en gedroogd fruit, zoetig, licht bitter. In mijn optiek niet het lekkerste Leffe biertje, maar zeker niet slecht.

dnicolaescu (885) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - AUG 21, 2014
BOTTLE 33CL. Look: brandy amber and clear, off-white frothy to creamy head. Aroma: delicate maltiness with spicy peppery notes, light blonde fruit perfume with light acid notes and a slight alcoholic scent. Taste: light blonde fruit perfume with light acid notes, malt sweetness, some alcohol but not too bad, spicy peppery and light bitter finish.

Malty and fruity aroma, no hops. Nice golden color, crystal clear. Good white head. Taste is light-medium sweet, not hoppy/bitter. Typical belgian fruit esters. Carbonation is very lively. Good typical Belgian Blonde Style.
