330ml bottle poured into a tulip glass.
A: Pours a translucent golden color with light hints of amber. About two fingers of a white foamy head with great retention, dissipates very quickly leaving thick lacing behind. A lot of carbonation - stems of bubbles coming from the bottom of the glass. (4.5)
S: Strong mix of wheat and barley malts - wheat predominates. Strong Belgian yeast aroma, fruity, cooked pineapple, apple, banana, grassy, orange zest and Belgian spices. (4)
T: Smell is richer than the taste. Alcohol is more apparent in the taste. Barley caramel malts, not a whole lot of wheat malts. Belgian yeast is still strong. The taste is very sweet upfront, but gets bitter as the beer fills the palate. (4)
M: Light to medium body, high carbonation, boozy. Refreshing and alcoholic sensation in the mouth after each sip. Lovely bready aftertaste. (4.25)
O: Even though this is a very simple and cheap Belgian Ale, this brew will always be special to me, considering it was the first Belgian Ale I've ever had. I can get this for the same price as most Adjunct Lagers/Euro Pale Ales at local liquor stores, so I never hesitate about what I'll buy when I want something cheaper. Leffe is the beer I always have in my refrigerator. (4)
Today I had a glass of Leffe with pasta, with red sauce and chicken breast. Surprisingly, it paired amazingly well. The sensation and aftertaste were absolutely great. I'll definitely try to repeat this combination.
