33cl bottle poured into the specially shaped Leffe glass, its like a chalice-snifter, or something.
A - a light amber, or golden hue with tinges of red is how I would attempt to describe the beer. the head is white and is retaining very well from the massive bubbling coming from the bottom of the glass. looks great, and I can't wait to try it.
S - the beer smells more like a weissbier than a belgian. wheat domniates the topnotes, while there is an underlying note of something herbal or plant-like
T - a very sweet beer, not to my taste, but acceptable to some I imagine. up front there is a thick carbonation that pairs with the wide malt body to make a very even flavour. during the finish there is a pang from the hops on the mid-back of the tongue. the aftertaste has a bit of alcohol, but this quickly subsides to the pervasive sweetness of the malts. I wish I could find more to say about this, but it is a highly uncomplicated beer in my opinion.
MF&D - the thickness of the beer intertwined with the overall sweetness and lackluster taste make for an average if not disappointing beer. nothing horrible, but nothing I would venture to try again in the bottle.
