look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

750ml Bottle from Tesco (£2.99):
Looks like clear blackcurrant juice with a 1cm, bubbly white head that disappears almost instantly.

Sweet with lots of raspberries plus a solid malt base & lots of sugar plus lighter fruits. Some strawberries come through with hints of spice & sourness. Definitely sweet beer but not overpowering.

Sweet with lots of strawberries & raspberries, the strawberries are the more dominant. Some sugar & a candy like tastes appear with some cherries & syrup, almost artificial in places.

Light medium, some spice & medium carbonation. Sweet but not overly so.

I wasn't overly confident before trying this one but it was miles better than Leffe Nectar at least. Not a great beer really & both the Brune and Blonde version are also better but it was an okay beer for a midweek drink.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours reddish with a pale pink, tall head. Dissipation takes a long, long time and leaves fantastic lacings.

S: Lots of raspberries, but rather sweet - lemonade instead of berries? Some malt.

T: Sweet - but not overly sweet. Raspberries and some malt, alongsides with oranges and some spices.

M: Aftertaste holds the raspberries for a really long time. Body is medium and carbonation is mild.

O: Not bad, but I expected more...

330 ml. bottle. Thick head with pink tones that leaves a good lace, rose wine colour. Smell of medicinal syrup, red frutis and vanilla. Thin body, sweet palate. Taste of red fruits, apples and medicinal fruit. Not exactly the best of the Leffe beers.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Ruby/copper; small head, dissipates quickly; good lacing

Aroma: Fruity, but fake fruity; maybe strawberries mixed with something

Taste: Taste is actually impressive; fruity, but pleasant; sort of a malty fruit soda; enjoyable overall

Remarks: Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores
