3.6/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Listed as a Belgian Strong Dark Ale but it looks more like a quad, maybe even a bit light for that. It has a golden caramel color with a thin, soft off-white head that leaves a bit of sticky lace. Smell is caramel, coriander, and a slight hop floral smell. The taste is dominated by the caramel, with a slightly drier woody aftertaste. Basically, what the smell smells the taste delivers, so no surprises there. Mouthfeel is a lightly carbonated with a nice substantial stickiness that coats the tongue. Overall, a good beer. Pretty drinkable and nicely balanced. I've always liked Leffe's blonde and if you like that, you'll like this more.

2.56/5  rDev -30.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Posh looking .75 litre cork and caged bottle poured into 3 Leffe stemmed tulip/chalices on 20th Dec 13.

Looked fine, an orange hue to the golden almost clear body, with a white covering that hung around: nicely carbonated, you could see the bubbles rising through the beer.

It went a bit downhill after that: the aroma was grainy and slightly fruity but as the beer warmed it became metallic and not so pleasant.

The taste also went iffy as it warmed a little, started off crisp and sharp with a semi-sweet lead it then turned on me; again being metallic, the alcohol also became apparent in the mouth.

Drink it fast and cold or not at all.
