3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle@Brussels Airport in Leffe glass@approx 6 degrees C. pours clear amber with sufficient white head. The aroma is slightly floral with a malt sweetness and just a hint of yeast. Not much hops comes through.. Taste follows aroma. A little on the sweet and malty side, but much cleaner taste and less sugar-sticky palate than Leffe Blonde. Also the hops comes through more than in the aroma. The alcohol is well balanced and the aftertaste is quite long and again of beer without any unpleasant off tastes. Agree with EdKing who finds the low ratings given by some curious for this beer and share his wonder about how much is affected by the macro ownership because the Leffe Royale is also to me a surprisingly good beer.

Amber appearance. Very good, mild taste. Not a wide palete, nor strong aroma, but the taste compensates

Taste is sweet malt, brown bread, rye bread, cereal grain, creamy slight lactic, brown sugar, yeasty,

Golden with a good white head, sparkling. Some typical banana clove yeast, sweet but with a dry finish unlike most blonde Leffe. Quite an improvement.
