A: Light mohoganny. Medium-high effervescence. No floaties. One inch of thick white foam.

S: Spicey and brisk. Coriander upfront with an assortment of other spices also detectable at the back.

T: Medium high intensity. Follows on the nose. Slight hop flavour detectable.

P: Bitterness low. Medium to full bodied. Low carbonation. Alcoholic flavours blend well and are enjoyable overall.

O: Polished, sophisticated and of enough complexity even if it's not a very bold take on the style.

33cL bottle (6pack)

A: gold- to slight tanned, very clear, lingering head
S: grain, caramel, fruit (banana) and cloves,
T: bit tannic, husky malty grain, some oak? some hint of vanilla, has got some whisky-like finish. hint of alcohol sweetness
M: very elegant touch, finishes dry, with a hint of sweeness
O: as i put it, this beer has some finesse to the taste. it does NOT have the strong phenols of the blond that i tasted. a good beer.

I like Leffe , it has a good reputation it scores well in bars as they have easy accessible uncomplicated brews steers the young clear of the terrible mass produced lagers.
Orange brown colour, creamy head, nice carbonation. Great lacing.
Citric aroma, a little bit of banana in there. Also some pine.
Taste is quite bitter. Crisp clean finish.
Pretty good beer, actually. It's balanced with sweet and bitter, it's refreshing and has a pleasant aftertaste as well.
