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.

A: The beer is clear reddish brown in color. It poured with a half finger high light beige head that died down rather quickly, leaving some lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark fruits and spices are present in the nose - cloves seem to stand out in particular among the spices.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and seems to be dominated by favors of dark fruits and cloves along with some hints of yeast.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The alcohol is well masked from the taste so this beer is rather easy to drink considering its strength.

3.44/5 rDev -8.5%
A - Pours a brown copper colour with off white frothy two finger head that retains fairly well
S - Strong sweet candy like aromas with malts. Plum, some cherries with a hint a vanilla.
T - get the sweet malts and dark fruit straight up and slighty bitter and a little boozy on the finish.
M - medium bodied with medium carbonation
O- Fantastic aromas on the nose which promised so much but I thought was a little disappointing in the end. Worth a try but not he best of the Leffe variety.

Nice thick and consistent head. Copper red color.
Fruity aroma from cherry, also cloves and coriander. Good carbonation.
Sweet taste from malt combined with spices, and hints of plum. A little citric and not so bitter.
Alcohol (8.2%) was very well hidden, just left a slightly warmth in the aftertaste. Very balanced beer. Being Brazilian, I see Inbev products with some caution, but in this case we should be thankful that they are able to produce beer with such quality at decent prices.
