Sampled on draught all over France and in select places in Italy. This is probably the best, most available beer in France. There are better, but Leffe is very easy to find and in most bars.
Pours a golden yellow, with a big white head. Nice lacing throughout. Good head retention and tiny streams of bubbles from the high carbonation
Aromas of fruit and sweet malt. A very unique nose that is very easily identifiable. Hints of bananas and cloves. Yeast and other scents I could not discern but could detect.
Tastes of sweet malt, bananas, cloves, with hints of spice. The taste is a tad bit sweet, but incredibly easy drinking. Maybe the perfect session beer, if it were a little less sweet.
I found Leffe perfect for heat, and I was in France in the hottest summer in over a century. Wonderful beer for late nights, when your winding down, or for a quick lunch. Amazing quality for a mass produced beer. I hope the quality does not diminish in the bottle as I brought a 3L home!

Pours true gold. Perfect amber. White head starts fat and falls of webby and sticky, then to a film on top before it goes away completely. not too much lacing. Lots of bubbles to look at. Nose is lovely. Sweet hint of pear and some lovely soft biscuit malt sweetness. A bit more clove than I expected at first but nice and a very faint banana in back. Some sweet flower petals and as it warms some pungent bitter grass. Lovely in the drink with a crisp and dry malt.A softness that is actually excited by all those bubbles. The clove and the fruit combine lovely and earthy at first then give way to a fruity middle made up of light peach and a little pear around the edges. The finish is dry and drying to the palate with a light remnant of the malt sweetness, a bit of ticklish spice and that lovely peach. It lingers but not long .
Lovely adn everything it should be.
