look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

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.

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.
