3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 33cl bottle, thanks to a friend at AB/Inbev. ( THANKS!).
Very hazy yellow, with small flecks of sediment. Thin, but sturdy head that died quick. Left a nice lace.
Aroma. Big malty, fruity, clove. You can almost "smell" the ABV.
Taste. Citrus, slight clove, bananna hit you right away. Almost a German Dunkel feel, until you swallow. Then the ABV warms your mouth, throat, and innards. This is an easy big ABV beer to drink. Flavor, and feel are wonderful.
As with the Leffe 9 degree I just had, I sure wish Inbev would turn these loose on us stateside!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rating from 4.2.2008: Die Farbe ist hell wie ein Weizen, schöner weißer Schaum.
Das Bier ist schön vollmundig-weich, die 8,5% nicht zu schmecken. Schön süffig-angenehm. Leicht scharf und dabei hefig. Etwas muffig in langem Nachgeschmack, aber nicht störend. Gutes abgewogenes Bier!!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Taste is quite close to the Leffe Royal, only less balanced. Fruity, sweet, does really well in summer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark orange cloudy body with yeast sediment and white lacing head. Aroma is oranges, grass, wheat, raisin and leather. Palate is slick , soft , oily and smooth. Carbonation is fizzy and soft. Taste is slightly bitter dry and fruity tart, with warming sensation from ABV 8,5%. Finish is fruity, yeasty and warming. Enjoyable straightforward Tripel.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
sweet smell and it reminds me of orange, koriander (is that the correct english word?), light sour, typical for such a beer with high original gravity, nice white foam, stays quite long on top of the beer, carbonisation medium-high; taste: koriander, very sweet, you can clearly taste the high alcohol beverage, creamy mouthfeel, overall a nice typical belgian beer

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml from Bier Tempel, Brugge - A hazy yellow body, fluffy white head. Nose is a bit syrupy, lots of sugar, caramel and toffee there too. Frothy mouthful of bubbles in the mouthfeel, lots of warmth in the taste. Decent tripel with a nice strong booziness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Orangy with a tiny head. Banana, cloves, spices, yeast. Quite sweet with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Overall: not terrible, better tan most other Leffes, but I’m not really into their specific yeast profile.
