Pours cloudy amber with huge white head. Slightly sweet, though artificial aroma with a hint of brown sugar and molasses. Flavours of grain, yeast, and bitter chocolate malt. Alcoholic content is quite well hidden, and flavours are well balanced. Still a bit artificial though.

FatPhil (15571) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 29, 2007
330ml bottle (Porterhouse, Dublin) Murky rich orange, lively head, had some floaty bits. Sweet alcoholic yeasty and malty aroma. Again, a bit too much alcohol in the taste, but pleasantly hoppy and temptingly malty.

adriancscott (16) - London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2007
Bottle: Trappist Glass. A great trippel with a good alchohol content to boot without tasting it too much. Well hidden. A lovely light golden brown colour to it with a nice large white head which lingers on for a long time, which is nice to be able to savour this strong trippel. It has a nose of hops, yeast and dark fruits and yeast. Good laceing on the glass which tempts you to more.. The taste is awesome for its strength at 8.4. Well hidden with slight fruity tones along with malt, and a strong yeast aftertaste slightly bitter. This is typical of this trippel. One of my favourites.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - OCT 1, 2007
"Leffe Tripel" bottiglia da 75cl a Napoli, assieme a risotto col riccio di mare e spigola lessa; abbinamento folle ma piuttosto riuscito (soprattutto per la dolcezza del riccio appaiata alla dolcezza della birra). Eh s dolce, troppo; ma ha dei pregi: letilico si sente molto meno di quanto mi aspettassi (e di quanto ad esempio si sente nella pessima tripel della Affligem), ha un aroma piacevole e neanche troppo "finto" e un colore biondo scuro con discreta portata di schiuma persistente (anche se non abbondantissima). Tutto sommato buonina!

MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Overall, just above average tripel. stately head and color in keeping with the style. More rich in the maltiness dept. than other tripels. No striking or unique flavors. In general a nice blend of malt/fruit flavor. among the Leffe family, probably the best.

EHSRanders (2037) - Tjele, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2007
Bottle. Hazy orange colour with large creamy mostly lasting head. Fruity aroma. Flavor is fruit and alcohol.

bu11zeye (13020) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2007
(Bottle, BB 18/10/08) Pours a lightly cloudy golden body with a dense egg-white head. Aroma of Peeps Easter candy, mustiness, black pepper, orange, and caramel. Flavor of spicy yeast, mild hops, and light lemon.

Gul/orange l. God frugtagtig smag uden at den er for strk. Sdlig duft, og ikke srlig tung.

Tranquillity (2205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2007
Bottle. A bit cherry, peach and smoke in the aroma. Hazy orange, thin but thick white head. Wonderful fizzy, alcohol filled flavours of nuts and banana.

Rastacouere (6176) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2007
Cloudy golden pour wearing a finely laced white head. Estery nose with pineapple and distinctive banana notes. Well developped yeastiness, but a bit brash and showing a spicey alcoholic edge that could be better brought about. A rather sweet example that could use a sharper hop punch to balance it out.
