look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

a big abbey fan, i have been eyeballing leffe for a while. i have been told its not a great beer, so i have put it off in favor of what i really like drinking when it comes to selection time.

i finally i bought a 6 pack for 8.99 at my local fine foods store, and went straight home to pour a tall glass. it looks like a beautiful beer, very bright and golden, with carbonation bubbles finding their way surfaceward to take their place among a nice bubbly head that lingers a bit and lightly hugs the glass. smells nice, a bit fruity, with a refreshing effervescent quality. does smell a bit on the citrus side. the taste was a bit disappointing from the get-go. i think i expected more, but it really tasted more like a fruity lager than anything else,with notes of banana bread. the cloves while present don't really add to the beer...the alcohol flavor is there, but more pronounced on the finish, which i would have to describe as bitterly bland. not a whole lot going on here. as for the mouthfeel, quite thin, which was expected. i could probably polish off 5 or 6 of these, but wouldn't enjoy it as much as a should (except for the ABV, a clean 6.6). for an abbey blonde, i guess it fits the bill, but barely. i wouldn't recommend it however. in general a letdown.
