Chilled 33cl bottle poured into Leffe branded chalice glass.
Pours a golden color with 2 fingers of head and brief patches of lacing.
Nose has elements of yeast with an alcohol under current.
Taste is sourced from a surprisingly developed palate when one considers how lackluster the nose is. Complex yeast flavors with mild hints of malt and even sweet fruit characters.
Mouthfeel is crisp with a spicy finish laden with peppers and fennel.
Jaded beer snobs amongst these reviews put this beer into cesspit like category and in some ways they maybe right. An over commercial product of multi national machine it might be and it is not on the standard of many of its brethren but a bad beer it is not friends.
This is a worthy beer and many will enjoy it.

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.
