A - I'm not sure why, but I've always thought Leffe was a witbier. I was wrong obviously, and boy was I shocked when the girl poured it and it was a golden amber color. It had a nice fluffy finger head that stuck around for a minute or two. The beer was "sticky" as it had some great lacing on the cup as I was drinking it.
S - It started off with a sweet scent which surprised me due to it having a darker color than what I was expecting. The sweet scent gave away quickly to a spicy, pepper-like scent which was much more of what I was expecting.
T - Tastes different from the smell definitely. There's an initial clove taste on the tongue. Afterwards it's followed up with some grapefruit and banana. The finish is spicy with a slight hop bitterness.
M - Light bodied with high carbonation. It's really bubbly upon first taste but the finish is more smooth.
D - Light flavored but complex at the same time. The ABV is hidden quite well which makes it a pretty drinkable beer. I'd definitely drink it again.
