Poured from bottle into Leffe chalice glass
Appearance – Pours a deep golden/orange color with a billowy white head. The head has a fair amount of retention, but fades slowly over time to give a nice level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is very classic of a Belgian. A biscuit aroma with a strong presence of yeast cake, banana and a lighter lemon citrus aroma. There is also a light pepper spicy aroma mixed with the rest.
Taste – A sweet and somewhat bready flavor met the tongue. The sweet is mainly citrus and a light caramel in nature with the breadiness a mix of biscuit and malty bread. Soon after the initial taste the yeast that was detected in the nose comes to the taste. This is soon also meet with flavors of banana and spice. These flavors take the taste to the end and leave a quite sweet yet satisfying flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body is a above average in thickness and chewiness and the carbonation level is quite average. The chewiness of the brew is really very nice for the style and allows al the flavors to coast and sit on the tongue.
Overall – This is a very affordable Belgian beer with a fantastic flavor and feel. A great session Belgian!!

Pours true gold. Perfect amber. White head starts fat and falls of webby and sticky, then to a film on top before it goes away completely. not too much lacing. Lots of bubbles to look at. Nose is lovely. Sweet hint of pear and some lovely soft biscuit malt sweetness. A bit more clove than I expected at first but nice and a very faint banana in back. Some sweet flower petals and as it warms some pungent bitter grass. Lovely in the drink with a crisp and dry malt.A softness that is actually excited by all those bubbles. The clove and the fruit combine lovely and earthy at first then give way to a fruity middle made up of light peach and a little pear around the edges. The finish is dry and drying to the palate with a light remnant of the malt sweetness, a bit of ticklish spice and that lovely peach. It lingers but not long .
Lovely adn everything it should be.
