Bottle 330 ml, at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV is 9%
Impressive appearance with a live deep orange/light amber colour, a finger of white, soapy head with very good retention and lots of activity in the glass.
Aroma of bananas, yeast, plums, some spices.
Taste is sweet and fruity, becomes slighty bitter afterwards, a bit hoppy and another bit alcoholic.
Quite carbonated, medium dry on the palate. Medium to full body.
Nice beer, goes down easily despite the high ABV.

750ml bottle purchased in a Paris supermarket (3.70 euros...???).

A: Pours a brassy clear light amber with a small white head.

S: Clean sweet malt - molasses, cakey graininess, a bit of alcohol.

T: Very sweet. Notes of maple syrup, sugary pale malt, mild herbal note. The 9% is somewhat perceptible. Finish is dry.

M: Tight, crisp, fine carbonation, medium-bodied, a bit syrupy.

O: A bit too sweet and syrupy.

330ml bottle, poured into a large tulip shaped wine glass. Dark golden colour, 2 finger well retained head, clear. Aroma was wild belgian yeast. Tasted yeast and sweet berries, had the usual Leffe sharpness. Slight burn from the booze at the finish but it generally it was hidden well. Smooth mouthfull, well carbonated, slightly chewy. Overall enjoyed it, unmistakably Leffe.
