330ml bottle, poured into Leffe chalice.

A: Golden colour, half finger head, good lacing, some floaters, don't know if they were supposed to be there.

S: Very pronouned Phenol, Esters and Molasses.

T: Phenol, molasses, fudge, vanila, some yeast. Did a good job of hiding the booze, which was barely noticeable aside from a slight burn at the finish.

M: Smooth, light body, decent carbonation.

O: Impressive but slightly lacking the X factor that marks out great beers.

Poured into tulip at Uber in Seattle.

Pours light, golden, and with three fingers of white head.

Smells sweet, floral, citrusy. Belgium yeast comes out.

Very complex flavor index, but very well balanced. Banana and mango. Light citrus. Honey. There’s a lot going on.

Smooth and crisp, carbonated.

Overall it’s a very light and refreshing drink with a decent punch. My favorite beer that is readily available. If only it weren’t so expensive.
