3.35/5 rDev -5.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Served in a goblet with a Leffe logo even on it (which didn't impress me too much, I have one at home). Thin layer of head around the rim. Appearance was a pale cloudy straw, what I expect from a light Belgian. Nose was sweetish, some spice and a bit of apple/pear. Taste was sweetly/sour, less spice than was in the nose, but definitely notes of apple/pear in there. Thick mouthfeel, an okay sipping beer to be enjoyed with a meal, but nothing in the realm of a sessional.
Serving type: on-tap

3.7/5 rDev +4.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Very clear bright gold, with a frothy, long-lasting off-white head and a constant flow of "champagne bubbles."
Smell: A pleasant, well-balanced mixture of mandarin oranges, spices, and just a hint of bready yeast in the background. Very true to style.
Taste: Bready malt is at the forefront, but quickly comes into balance with the light orange and spice flavors, as well as a soft bitterness. Could be more complex, but is a solid pick for those who are new to beer and are looking to learn that not everything tastes light bud light.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Smooth and crisp, yet slightly watery. Could be a little fuller.
Overall: A tad simplistic for experienced drinkers of Belgian styles, but remains flavorful, refreshing, and true to style. Something simple that I would recommend to a "beer newbie." Sessionable and easy to find on the shelves--something I would pick up on my way to a spring or summer group picnic.
Serving type: bottle
