3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy, dull orange colour, medium white head; this one was lively and after pouring left loads of yeasty bits in the glass, like a burst tea bag; aroma is strong, sweet and boozy; taste is sweet, candied oranges, warming alcohol - all good big bold flavours; as someone says below, itís liked a souped up version of the blonde; enjoyable stuff - had Kwak earlier in the week and this matches it on delivering obvious crowd pleasing flavours.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml. bottle, pour into a Leffe glass. Cloudy yellow to orange colour, with a dense and compact head that leaves some lace when it vanishes. Lots of sediments floating around. Smell is at first yeasty, earth, then it opens to what it seems a lot of spices, clove, coriander cardamom, orange zest, fruits... Dense and creamy palate, taste of orange zest, spices (as in the smell), notes of honey, flowers... Probably my favorite on e from Leffe.

Dark gold, nice white foam. Taste is sweet with some bitter hoppy notes. Aroma is fruity, notes of honey and apricots. Not a fan of Leffe, but this is not bad.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the zwergs. Yellow hazy, a gusher (my handwoven carpet got a taste of it). Nice malty, estery, zesty nose. A bit of fruity banana peel, some phenols. Smooth soft body, bit of toasty malts in finish. Flavour-wise good soft golden honey malts, belgian yeasty goodness. A bit messy for a triple. Not as clean, concentrated as some others. Tasty though.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml Bottle. It pours a cloudy orange amby body that has lots of large sediment with a white head that lasts a short time and then vanishes to leave moderate lacing. However (and this is a 1st for me) the carbonation of the beer then thickens the lacing into the head again. Its aroma is orange, malts and coriander. Its taste is fairly unremarkable, Sweet fruits and zestiness with a sweet bitter finish and the traditional Belgian smokiness. Id say this beers is on the better side of average but still none-the-less average.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shared a 33cl bottle from Auchan (Luxembourg). Pours a hazy yellow colour with a thin white head. The aroma is malt, citrus and coriander. Medium carbonation with medium body. Flavour is bitter with some orange notes and hoppy end. Nice but nothing extraordinary.
