yngwie (16590) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 29, 2007
Bottle. It pours a bit hazy, golden-orange with lots of small floaties and a dense off-white head. Yeast, banana, wheat, spicy hints, sweetness and some alcohol in the aroma. The flavor is a bit metallic, with wheat, banana, alcohol, sugar, some spices and weak hoppyness. Full, sweet and warming body and a quite sweet finish with alcohol and fruityness. A ewell-made tripel. (070416)

omhper (23892) - Tyres, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2007
Bottled (8.5%) at Man inthe Moon, Stockholm. Cloudy deep golden, rich firm head. Aroma of banana and caramel. Loads of sweet banana liqueur and an evident almondy yeast character. dense in the mouth. Very sweet,but without being cloying. More bold than subtle with some late grassy bitterness and a wealth of warming alcohol.

i strangely like it less than leffe blonde. I dont know why. It tastes less thick and more smooth. Something in the flavor is lacking though. Its pretty overall and not bitter at all (for my tastes).

rmussman (1701) - California, USA - MAR 2, 2007
Probably my favorite Leffe beer. Ordered it in a Leffe glass in Brugge that I purchased and brought home. An excellent brew. The pour is beautiful and has a rich thick white head. Goes down very smooth and flavor is enhanced by proper spices and is a great tripel!

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2007
Pours cloudy (didnt suspect that this would be bottle conditioned) dark golden with a large rocky white head. Light aroma of candy, musty yeast, peach and floral hops. full smooth sweet body, flavours of candy, stonefruit nectar and yeast. The bitterness was a little weird and cheap, perahaps there was some cinnamon notes in there too. Pretty solid warming finish. Maybe a little sweet but otherwise its pretty good.

davegore (223) - liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2007
33cl bottle, pours a cloudy yellow with a good fluffy head, definite aroma of tropical fruits, bready flavour too, maybe the yeast coming through. nice coating in the mouth and hides the alcohol content really well. spices follow with more tropical and citrus hints, dry finish, some bitterness

PeterA (342) - EL SALVADOR - FEB 22, 2007
Bottle 8.5% alcohol. Pineapple aroma with the clear presence of Belgian yeast. The color was a dark, cloudy yellow with a bit of a white head. The flavor also made me think of pineapple, but with some mild spices mixed in. The mouthfeel was medium, and the aftertaste was mild. The alcohol was clearly present, but not offensively so. A nicely balanced beer.

iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2007
Cloudy golden with a lasting head. Cookiecutter tripel-aroma; floral, with honey, bready yeast, coriander, citric, subdued hops. Taste was well-balanced and leaned to the dry side. Good mouthfeel, just the right amount of carbonation. A nice tripel, nothing special, but very decent nonetheless.
