A red amber body that is slightly clear. There is average carbonation to the body. The aroma is a little fruity and has a mild spice. The flavor is malty, very sweet and some tones coriander. There is a bit of prune and raisin esters. There is a dessert like finish. It has full body with some warmth but not as much as one might think.

I've had a taste of Radieuse before, but being at Leopold in Den Haag brought me a chance to drink a bottle on my own. Coming from a 330 ml bottle, on to the beer:

Beauty in a glass is a ruby red with orange and brown hues, a long lastng head, and webbed lacing around the glass. The aroma of dark candi sugar, soft yeast, prunes, and red grapes sets the tone for a fun aroma. Even more fun is the taste; while sweet, brings a lovely fruitiness, toffee, clove, and soft enough to continues to be consumed. It's medium bodied witha slight syrupy feel.

Given my lack of previous success with Leffe, I'm a little surprised by how much I enjoyed Radieuse. I would be glad to meet this beer again.
