(Bottle) Hazy golden with small white head. Nice aroma of caramel, banana, vanilla, hints of spice. Medium body with mouth filling soft creamy carbonation. Foretaste has the same characteristics of the aroma, gentle caramel, banana and hints of vanilla and spice, and some citrus. The spice and citrus develop and the taste becomes less soft, leading to some bitterness and a hint of alcohol burn in the finish. Nice beer.

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.

Bella bevuta questa Leffe tripel. Si presente di un colore oro carico, quasi arancio. Anche al naso non delude, con resina, pere, arancio e canditi che arrivano al naso. Una bella birra, dal corpo non rotondissimo, ma tra il medio e lo scarno, con una carbonatazione che non da fastidio essendo non prorompente . il finale amarognolo ma non caldo n lungo, e questo fa perdere qualche punto ad una gran bella birra. Da provare.

33cl bottle from A Tutta Birra. Light golden hazy coloured. White lasting head. Aroma is very yeasty and spicy. Lots of alcahol in the flavour. Some sweet and malty accents. A little too bland in the aftertaste.

maneliquor (3006) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle at Sofitel Amsterdam. Nothing too far outside most Tripels, probably a touch sweeter than most but I like it and it is well rounded. Good balance outside of the sweetness which works well. Nice stuff
