yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 7, 2005
Tasted 07/05/2005. 330ml bottle from New World Metro, Wellington. Lovely hazy orange-leaning golden liquid is offset by a sad looking pure white head that is reminisent of dishwashing foam. Spicey citrus bouquet. No yeasty banana aroma that I expected. Sweet malty front flavour and that leffe yeast spiciness turns a little medicinal through the middle. Palate is fairly clean and becomes warming, tending towards fuel-like - a little harsh in the back of the throat. Not a great tripel and my least favourite Leffe.

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2005
(bottle) Hazy orange colour with a foamy white head. Fruity aroma of bananas and pears with a touch of honey and marzipan. Malty taste with notes of bananas and yeast and a warming bitter dry finish.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Orangey, hazy beer. Sweetish, full-bodied with lots of yeast in the nose. Fruity, spicy and fresh and not that bitter. A very nice Tripel. 020593

GarethYoung (1109) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 1, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2005 [bottle: peckhams : trappist glass] pours cloudy orange. nose is dusty yeast, orange peel and a spiceyness comes through as well as a lot of alcohol. decent body, alcohol is too dominant here for my tastes, espescially since its only 8.5%

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2005
This one is probably one of my favorites from the leffe line of beers. Awesome deep orange amber with an imense head that dissipates slowly. Aroma is spicy with some fruitiness, malt, hay and some hops. Good balanced flavor of malts biscuit dough and hops. Nice clean crisp and dry finish.

Perfect foam. The tast is rather good but not superior.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2005
The best iv had from leffe. very similar to the blonde, though not as sweet. Particularly nice apperance as its a tan/orange cloudy with nice head, though it diminishes quite quickly. One to try again, and your could probably drink a few of them concidering the strength. (my bottle was 8.5%)

MrBunn (2507) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2005
Pours very murky and light with tons of carbonation. Head is light. Aroma is very yeasty. Apple and yeast dominate taste. A little disappointed on this one.
