Posh looking .75 litre cork and caged bottle poured into 3 Leffe stemmed tulip/chalices on 20th Dec 13.
Looked fine, an orange hue to the golden almost clear body, with a white covering that hung around: nicely carbonated, you could see the bubbles rising through the beer.
It went a bit downhill after that: the aroma was grainy and slightly fruity but as the beer warmed it became metallic and not so pleasant.
The taste also went iffy as it warmed a little, started off crisp and sharp with a semi-sweet lead it then turned on me; again being metallic, the alcohol also became apparent in the mouth.
Drink it fast and cold or not at all.

This beer has a golden color with an orange hue. The body has a good bit of carbonation to the body that leads to the ivory head. There is a decent lace. It has a great crisp smell with a hoppy finish but mainly clove, yeast and malt dominate. This beer had a nice hop presence but was not as strong as I thought. I like the citrus flavor mixed with spice. It has a medium feel.

330ml bottle served in a Leffe chalice.
A: Pours a dark orange almost orange color forming a very creamy yellow head. Many lacings are formed and left in the glass
S: Smells like a Leffe blond. Very sweet in the nose with strong notes of honey, caramel, caramel malts. Very bready yeasts. Quite spicy with strong notes of cloves and perhaps vanilla. Light flowery hops and some light notes of alcohol
T: Sweet upfront. Caramel, caramel malts, honey, bread. Spicy! Strong notes of cloves. In overall, a sweet beer, Belgian style. Mild hoppy bitterness in the end. A little bit metallic
M: Medium body. Medium carbonation. A little bit molasses. Balanced Belgian bittersweet profile
O: Good drinkability. Strong Leffe personality. Smooth beer. Recommended

Hazy deep amber/golden with a rich , thick off-white head. Nose is yeasty and spicy with notes of coriander and banana. Taste is sweet and slightly bitter. Medium/light body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Banana and gummi bonbons on palate (almost like a hefe). Sweet and bitter finish.

33 cl bottle Poured into my lost abbey stemware glass
Very nice colour, deep golden, light amber with a huge three finger head on top, white in colour, thick and creamy. Very good retention after losing its 2/3 of height. Average activity in the glass.
Light aroma of dark fruits and yeast , cinnamon
Taste is quite sweet and fruity, mostly dark fruits, plums, cinnamon ,some raisins too, with a slighty metalic aftertaste.
Medium body and high carbonation. Quite dry on the palate. Alcohol very well hidden. A good all day beer

I like Leffe , it has a good reputation it scores well in bars as they have easy accessible uncomplicated brews steers the young clear of the terrible mass produced lagers.
Orange brown colour, creamy head, nice carbonation. Great lacing.
Citric aroma, a little bit of banana in there. Also some pine.
Taste is quite bitter. Crisp clean finish.
Pretty good beer, actually. It's balanced with sweet and bitter, it's refreshing and has a pleasant aftertaste as well.
