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!

Calisky (1094) - ALSACE, FRANCE - DEC 17, 2014
Couleur orangée trouble, forte mousse qui disparait. Nez fruité, fruits jaunes, pommes ,malt, notes levures et bananes. Gout fruité levures, sucré, malté, alcool, notes pailles. Corps moyen. Pas trop mal, mais on sent la triple industrielle, le fruité pas trop intense, le sucré et le levure pas si naturel, on sent trop l’alcool. Trop dans la moyenne dans tout.

Hazy golden colour. Yeast and bananas. Not very hopped, so it’s quite smooth.

ElManana (509) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2014
Pours murky brown with no head. Aroma is spicy, peppers, koriander, orange. Taste is malt, spices, orange peel, sweet (like all Leffes are). Still one of the better Leffes. But that doesn’t say much.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2014 30cl flesje via Jumbo, Maastricht Alcoholpercentage van 8,5% Uitgeschonken in origineel Leffe glas Uiterlijk: goudoranje kleurig met redelijke witte kraag Aroma en smaak: Belgisch gist, fruitig als perzik/abrikoos, zoet, klein bittertje in de afdronk Conclusie: bekende abdijtripel natuurlijk van Leffe, niet speciaal door de beschikbaarheid en massaproductie, wel lekker

Flaska från broder Brun, thanks! Grumlig brungul vätska med massiv jästfällning. Doftar starkt av kryddor och jäst. Smakar syrligt och kryddigt. Får återigen konstatera att belgare inte är för mig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Light brown color with white head. Aroma has yeast, caramel and malt. Taste is a bit bitter with long sweet finish. Flavors of caramel, spices, hops, some ripe fruits and alcohol. Not a specialty but nice one.
