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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Another disappointing brew from the Leffe guys. Maybe it's their best, but overall it is again lacking something that would make me happy.

L: dark golden look, with nice lasting top, with fine bubbles.
S: the Leffe-yeast is very mentionable, malty but milder than the regular Leffe blond.
T: difficult to say, malt with a touch of citrus;
M: round, alcohol feels too strong, though it's only 7,5%, overall a bit disharmonic;
O: this seems the best Leffe can, and it's quite okay, but I find it still a bit too poor
