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

750 mL bottle. Overpriced bottle. Clear copper with a nice, white head. Sweet, yeasty, fruity aroma. some malt in the flavour, along with the yeast. Doesn’t finish too sweet. Neither appealing nor off-putting. Just another Belgian.

Sample @Colruyt. Bière blonde de type Triple aromatisée aux houblons anglais; ce qui lui donne un profil de Pale Ale. Cependant, cette Royale reste une Leffe à la signature caractéristique: un maltage caramélisé laissant un arrière goût sucré trop cuit voire brûlé. L’ajout de ces houblons lui donne une vraie valeur ajoutée: comme un soutien à ce maltage classique en lui conférant pas mal de saveur sur des notes argileuses; rêches et herbacées sur une belle longueur.

Bottiglia da 75 cl. Color oro con schiuma abbondante di grande tenuta. Buoni i profumi fruttato e crosta di pane. Delude un po al palato cob un inizio molto dolce di frutta matura a polpa gialla, fllce anche il finale e il retrogusto.

Dark gold to light brown color. Not very much head. Not as good as Leffe tripel or bruin. Just OK.

É uma bela cerveja, que lembra um pouco a Blonde. Equilibrada e saborosa. Uma cerveja justa.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2016 Bottle at home. Aroma of malt, grain, sugar, yeast, sweet fruits, apples, alcohol. Flavour is sticky and a bit cloying medium sweetness with a moderate bitter finish. Body is medium. Artificial and overly sweet industrial stuff.

Moolesen (604) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Amber orange with a white head. Nose has this typical Leffe aroma, spices, rubber and yeast. Flavour compliments the aroma, slight sweet but with a subtle bitter finish. I had expected more hops to be present. To be clear, this is a very different beer compared with the Duvel Trippel hop. This is not an IPA style beer, which the Duvel trippel hop is.

3.5
DoctorHU (607) - UKRAINE - OCT 21, 2015
The aroma of butterscotch sweetness, acidity of dry white wines, fresh fruit tones, little notes of apple, amid little yeast mustiness. Interesting enough smell.
The taste is dry, first felt sour berry, caramel sweetness of sugar, yeast, then comes a surprisingly fierce bitterness, with a mixture of hop, woody perfume and shades then smoothed out and perceived taste smoother.
The bitter aftertaste becomes even stronger, coats the mouth, there arise tones of bitter herbs and tree bark, hops is felt clearly.
