Pretty clear amber, very nice head. Wheat beer aroma. Medium body, strong carbonation, mildly creamy. Sweet flavor of banana.. and some unpleasantness which must be some spice or maybe a sideproduct of the malts they use. donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 27, 2008
Pours cloudy golden, white head. Aromas full of spice, fruit, mainly banana. Reminds me of a wheat beer aroma. Fizzy mouthfeel, coriander like sweetness to it. Very drinkable and very nice. My favourite of the Leffe’s I’ve tried so far. That1Guy (2240) - Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2008
Not crazy about it. Drinkable but a strange finish. Surprisingly creamy as hell though. Probably the beer’s best asset. Prometheus (160) - Bamberg, Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2008

Golden blonde with a copper hue, white head. Aroma of malts, fruits, esters, spices. Flavour is sweet, fruity, a little sour, spicy. Rather thick mouthfeel, soft. Just a very good blond beer. grandridge (228) - Port Clinton, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2008
First I have to give an reason why this is so high. A frined, who I thought was a little out there gacve me a Leffe that was over 5 years old. The Best By was 2/08/2005. I decided to give it a shot next to a fresh one (BB 2/21/2009). The aged leffe came out darker and had some yeasties floating in it. Wheras the fresh one poured clean, golden and slightly transparent. The aged leffe had a sweet aroma, bannana, orange and other light lemon. The fresh leffe had these aroma but much much more subdued by the hop and yeast presence. The fresh leffe was crisp highly carbonated, slight hoppiness, yeasty with a clean finish. The aged leffe was not as carbonated but still had some lingering carbonation, sweeter but not over sweet, all of the fruits came out a lot more. This is a huge improvemnt on the original Leffe. Age this beer. Cabeero (15) - Thornton, Colorado, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Big banana and caramel, just like an abbey ale should be. Sparkling, clear brown appearance with a mostly diminishing head but nice lacing. Other than the lacing, it smacks of macro––but a nice macro brew never the less.

Golden color with darker hues. Carbonation bubbles throughout create a big head that dissipates but stays present. Yeasty, almost sugary notes on the nose.. really pleasant. Clove, sweet yeast, banana like.. honeysuckle and orange flavors. A slight hop note that is noticable, but only to balance. It’s sort of like a light belgian. The yeast esters and notes aren’t as huge, the sweetness more subdued into a palatable sweet/semi-sweet.
It’s perhaps less... just less than some other Belgians, but it gives it a nice approachability.
Yay. 10nth rating. Nice beer. rabbikrabbi (15) - , ICELAND - AUG 12, 2008
On tap in Reykjavík. Excellent beer. Golden with nice creamy filling and head. Fruity aroma. Sweet fruity and malty taste with a hint of banana and caramel. Nice finish.
