I really like this beer. It doesn't get the best reviews but I feel that it is a fantastic introduction to Belgian ales.
It isn't as complex as others and it does seem to be lacking the carbonation and mouthfeel as other higher rated Belgians. It does have that clovey, Belgian taste to it and is very refreshing. It is very sweet and fruity and the problem is, you can drink a ton of them. I always drink mine in a Duvel tulip but it doesn't seem to keep a big head like a Duvel.
Overall, a great Belgian beer. Especially if you are new to the game. I had an Orval and a Rochefort 8 right before drinking this particular Leffe and it is still fantastic. Goes great with the cigar that I am smoking.
Not alot of love for this Beer, but it is very solid in my opinion. Just not extremely complex like others.

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.
