3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle conditioned, aged 7.5 yrs. Cloudy orange, short lasting head, yeast lumps. The aging has changed this into a smooth rounded caramel, syrupy beer with few of the spicy notes usually found in the fresh samples. A litle cough mixture in the flavour with some clove but otherwise unremarkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle: I bought this last year and decided to see how good it could be with a little nurturing. Mine poured a darder, golden color that was very hazy. It had a good strong head on it. The aroma is fairly common for this type, with a bready, yeasty start and a bit of banana and clove in it. A hint of some spiciness also. It is a bit weaker in strengh than some of the others of this type. The taste is quite smooth. Bready, with a bit of banana and clove to the taste. A touch lighter than expected. I think that ageing didnít have any real impact on the flavor, except for maybe taking a bit of the rough edges off of it.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The Leffe Triple is stong, with prevalent alcohol, but it is harldy different in flavor than most Belgians - it is salty upfront with a hard hitting bitterness that quickly fades leaving a slight stickiness on the lips and a longing for more high alcohol pleasure. The color is gold, nearly copper, and the head is large, big-bubbled and white. The extra punch of this brew lends complexity, but that is almost cheating isnít it? This is standard for the style.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear golden yellow with large offwhite foaming head. You can hear the beer while you watch the active carbonation. Strong aroma of citrus and pepper spice. Flavor of light caramel blended with citrus, pepper and light yeast. The palate is smooth, almost creamy (not expected based on clear body) and the pepper and carbonation give a nice finishing zip. Final pour was cloudy and revealed lots of floaties.
