COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Hoogwaardig belgisch blond bier, meesterwerk van de meesterbrouwers van Leffe".

"High quality belgian blond beer, masterpiece from the masterbrewers at Leffe". Refined bitterness and delicate hops aromas. Charles Nouwen, brewmaster of Leffe, traveled the world in search of the best hops. Whitbread Golding Hops is grown in the Poperinge region of Belgium. Leffe Royale Whitbread Golding is the original recipe for Leffe Royale, launched in 2012. Its delicate bitterness with citrus and resinous notes, reminiscent of that of banana or vanilla, as well as flowery aromas define this exceptional beer.

Lupulus13 (36) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2017
Bottle from Hoogvliet. Golden with lasting white bubbly head. Quite sugary with slight bitter aftertaste but no real hoppiness. Adequate

nathanvc (696) - Brugge, BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2017
Pours hazy amber/light brown with a frothy, diminishing, off-white head. The aroma contains caramel, white bread, (over)ripe fruits (apple), some banana, some spices, alcohol and candy. Only very faint hops. It tastes heavy to medium sweet, slightly cloying but countered by a light spicy bitterness. Some apparent alcohol in the finish (and that for 7,5% ABV). Medium body, slick/sticky texture, fizzy carbonation. The promised hops are very hard to find. All in all, a complete mess.

datrael (605) - Krakow, POLAND - SEP 22, 2017
W aromacie i smaku melasa, ciemne i czerwone owoce, owoce kandyzowane. Z wyglądu miedziane z obrączką beżowej piany. Pijalność średnia, dość ciężkie. Ogólnie mało wyraziste, średnie piwo.

buczykij (162) - Limanowa, POLAND - SEP 3, 2017
Barwa bursztynowa, klarowne. Piana średnio obfita, niezbyt trwała. W aromacie obecne lekkie nuty owocowe i przyprawowe. W smaku już bardziej wyraźne fenole w postaci przypraw. Dosyć mocno wysycone, goryczka niska, alkohol dobrze ukryty.

HogTownHarry (7065) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - AUG 30, 2017
November 20, 2015 - with blankboy, jercraigs and mabel - 750ml bottle. Very clear bright amber-tinged brassy gold, large fluffy off-white head (4+). Aroma is alcohol, candi sugar, spicy/sweaty yeast - even a bit of peat?? - more like a pungent earthy tripel - I like it!! Taste is simpler - very sweet and yeasty, not as boozy and no earthy notes. Slick, alcoholic, slightly still mouthfeel - very quick finish. Aroma; amazing - everything else, not all that much - and hardly any frickin hops in sight or smell or taste.

MoritzF (10095) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2017
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, deep golden to amber colour with a medium-sized, slowly lacing off-white foamy head. Juicy malty aroma with notes of bubblegum and shades of toasted malt in the background. Sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a prickly carbonation. Sweetish and delicately toasted malty taste with notes of candied fruits, sugar; sweet and restrained bitter and slightly sticky finish. Wouldn´t order a second one. 14.VIII.17
