    Leffe Beer ?

    Basically, my OH's parents just got back from a months tour of france and they brought me back some Leffe Beer for all my help around the house while they have been gone. I have never even heard of this beer and im just wondering if anybody else has ? If you have heard of it and tried it, what is it compared to in like our type of beers e.g. carling, carlsberg, stella etc etc.

    Thanks people rep for good answers )

    lol fair do's.... put one in the freezer then and take it out in about 20 mins.... sorted lol

    Carling, carlsberg, stella are all mass produced lagers - leffe is a stronger, more flavoured beer, a 'trappist' ale originaly brewed by monks in the Belgian region, more like a real-ale in this country. There are three main flavours of leffe - brune, which is quite dark, blonde, which is lighter and triple which is darker and very strong (over 8%). They are very nice, but you'll find you can't drink as much as you would a weaker lager!

    PS You don't really need to cool it much, its not really meant to be drunk ice cold like a lager... (maybe cool it a bit in this heat mind!)

    yeah i've had it.. you can get it from the uk in places too..


    tbh all beers/ales ect ect taste the same to me.... only cider and guiness taste different

    It's really smooth and full of flavour. I had loads while riding through France to Spain a few years ago and it was the highlight of every night.

    I had a couple in the factory too! All I drink when I go to Dublin. Have to admit, I wasn't too keen on first taste, but it grows on you.

    It's beer - you're not wine-tasting here. If you drink it and you get drunk, surely it ticks the boxes ?

    Leffe can be bought in Tescos, as thats where i get mine from. LOL
