Had not had this beer since being in Europe almost a year ago, and finally found it on tap, in my home town none the less!
This beer is a wonderful golden hues, rich, with a slight head, and was served in a genuine Leffe chalice. I really enjoyed this. Strong clove notes, as from any good Beligium, this beer was better than I had remembered and I savored it with each sip. This is a fairly tame Belgian though, and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to get into the style... also is a "major" brew of sorts (yeast and spiciness of the clove do stay to the back enough to be a transitional beer). All in all, a great brew, deserving of its reputation.
Serving type: on-tap

While I haven't tried nearly all the beers of this style, I can't imagine them being much better than this one. To me this beer has a near ideal balance of sweetness, light hop bitterness, esters, & spiciness flavor. The smell is banana, clove, & bubblegum while the appearance is a clear, medium gold. I must admit that I find this beer to be better than most that have reviewed it, but that is OK as it is staple in my refrigerator.

3.7/5 rDev +4.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Very clear bright gold, with a frothy, long-lasting off-white head and a constant flow of "champagne bubbles."
Smell: A pleasant, well-balanced mixture of mandarin oranges, spices, and just a hint of bready yeast in the background. Very true to style.
Taste: Bready malt is at the forefront, but quickly comes into balance with the light orange and spice flavors, as well as a soft bitterness. Could be more complex, but is a solid pick for those who are new to beer and are looking to learn that not everything tastes light bud light.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Smooth and crisp, yet slightly watery. Could be a little fuller.
Overall: A tad simplistic for experienced drinkers of Belgian styles, but remains flavorful, refreshing, and true to style. Something simple that I would recommend to a "beer newbie." Sessionable and easy to find on the shelves--something I would pick up on my way to a spring or summer group picnic.
