As most Leffe, this is a very yeasty brew. Strong (8,5%abv). Pretty drinkable, liked the color, smell and taste. Ovbisously reminiscent of Leffe Blonde, probably better.

From bottle brought from coolwines,golden colour, aroma of yeasts, fruity notes (berries) and some caramel, taste is much the same as the aroma not bad.

Body is a light orange with a an almost perfect white head.
Yeasty, buttery aroma. Taste is similar yeasty ester, little spice and quiet buttery.
Little dryness, medium finish that doesn't hang around long. Not much alcohol warmth coming through for 8.5%. Pretty average overall.

This tripel smells and tastes like a mixture of witbier and Leffe blond. Nice smell of cloves due to the usage of wheat. The coriander and orange peels give this beer the typical witbier taste, while still remaining its tripel character. It lacks the complexity I'd expect of a tripel though and the alcohol tends to dominate the closer you get to the bottom of your glass. The dull sweet malt taste of the blond Leffe is also quite prominent in their tripel. While the taste is all in all pretty disappointing, the smooth mouth feel is top notch though. A decent tripel, but then again, the tripel category has some excellent competitors.
