Some aroma, then alcohol burn with vague other flavour. A pathetic beer rendolent of the poor quality ingredients dictated by the actuarial department of a corporation. Industrial production lines suitable for mass produced lager do not adapt to making a complex beer and here’s the evidence. In the end this is just alcohol flavoured, a simple drink for people who don’t really like the taste of beer.

nicholai (100) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2005
Bottled. An orangish color, hazy, with minimal head. The smell is oranges, leather, alcohol, yeast - overall quite nice. the taste is an excellent melange of maple sugar, esthers, alcohol, some slight sweetness and a lingering bitter aftertaste. The mouthfeel is bubbly and round.

ashbeero (51) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2005
Dark amber beer. Fairly cloudy with a long lasting beige head. As with the blond, there are some real yeasty characters in the aroma. Some citrus characters from hops. Doughy yeasty flavour with some good malt flavours and hints of cloves and other spices. Alchol is not incredibly well hidden, but not too bad either. Fairly dry with medium-strong bitterness.

TomDecapolis (4568) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 5, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2005 There seems to be a consistant taste among the Leffe beers and the Tripel was no acception. This one was a rather standard tripel aside from the fact that it had that standard "Leffe" taste. This one poured with a foamy white head that stuck around for a little while. More so than the Blonde. A little less fruity and more malty then some other Tripels I’ve had.

lululegrand (94) - gent, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2005
Orange beer with light beige foam. Light sweet aroma, touches of hops and spies. Taste is round, light sweet with spies, fruits and hops in the finish.

Lunkie (1484) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2005
Grassy spiritus malt hop aroma. Cloudy yellow colour with fair head and lacing. Full hop maly flavour with underlying flavour of mixed fruits. Fizzy palate.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Bottle at the Sofitel in Santo Domingo. Barmaid brought this to me instead of the blonde, and I wasn’t about to correct her. Signature Leffe aroma and flavors, just stepped up a bit in tripel style with lots of bread and yeast tones.
