Heerlijk kruidig en fruitig biertje. Vluigje sinaasappel. Lekkere afdronk. Beetje bitter.

Pours a bright copper with a thin white head. Rich yeasty aroma with hints of sweetness. Balanced bittersweet.

Lore (1267) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 23, 2015
opalescent golden colour, medium sized, dense head; aroma of yeasts, fruity notes (berries) and some caramel; taste is the same;I like it

Marduk (3089) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 23, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours out flat, not enough excitement for Belgian. Slightly hazy amber color. Tiny size, white head, disappears. Sweetish, bready, bit papery, malty aroma. Bready, malty, sweet, sugary taste. Alcohol is very well hidden behind this sugar. Tastes almost like raw, filtered Estonian koduõlu. Sweet bready aftertaste. Smooth. Almost no carbonation. One of the weirdest Belgians for sure (and I don’t know if it’s suppose to taste like that).

Pyrmir (3631) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2015
330 ml bottle during Brussels vacation. Golden with white head. Aroma sweet, malty, alcohol and light banana esters. Taste is similar and fairly simple, sweet malt, light yeast esters, alcohol with a sweet and boozy finish

haddon90 (1503) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with not much of a head. Sugary aroma with malty notes and citrus. Smooth taste. Small kick with sweet malt and sugar. Tastes like a norma Leffe.

Xavalias (174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2015
25 cL bottle. Unclear blond body with not much head, no lacing. The aroma is yeasty and a bit hoppy. The taste is dry, with a smooth, well balanced palate. A bit boring and disappointing.

ruuurd (53) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2014
More than decent Tripel. Hoppy, fruity flavours. Its like the Heineken under the tripels!

Marcius (231) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - DEC 25, 2014
Appearance with golden color, cloudy liquid and nice head! Aroma: hops (floral) On the palate, it is bitter and sweet! Very good tripel, Leffe’s quality!

Calisky (1188) - 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.

adamnowek (331) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2014
Hazy golden colour. Yeast and bananas. Not very hopped, so it’s quite smooth.
