  1. David Sawford

    This is an authentic-tasting recipe that doesn’t disappoint. I accidentally used too much liquor and ended up with a slightly weaker result than the 7% it was supposed to be, but it still had a full bodied flavour and decent hoppiness. I’d definitely brew this one again.

    First time I have tried this and wow. Such a good tasting beer, great depth of flavour. Really authentic Leffe clone. Highly highly recommend.

  3. Benjamin Williams (verified owner)

    Gorgeous. A really nice beer and this T58 yeast is an absolute superstar. I did a side by side with actual Leffe and there was very little difference, I actually found the home brewed version to be a little more drinkable. When it’s first kegged it has quite a strong ‘Belgian’ character but it mellows out as it clears up, if you can resist drinking it. I can’t wait to do this one again and think it’ll be a good candidate for tweaking and modifications.

    Mine came out at 7% bang on. I am really impressed with this one, probably the most authentic clone I have brewed. It is very close to Leffe, the Belgium Candi Sugar taste is there. Will make this again. I doubt I will be able to see how it tastes once it has matured as I can’t stop trying it! Doubt it will last long.
