Enjoying in a cafe in Paris. Only biere on the menu was Heineken, this was a much better substation. Little hit of spice, surprising little more than expected mouthfeel. Little sweetness on the finish and some mild hoppiness. Perfect for spring people watching.

Medium golden in color. Had a mild aroma that lasted. Spicy taste, likely vanilla and clove.

A little lacing over a thick bubbly head that fades to nothing. Color is a brow orange hue. Aroma is a combo of malt (wheat and sourdough bread) and yeast (yogurt, vanilla ice cream, clove, sweet) with just a hint of orange and peaches. Palate is lots of vanilla and clove in an very sweet and unbalanced combination; mirrors other flavors of aroma. Pros smooth texture, medium plus intensity. Cons unbalanced and singular vanilla and clove flavors, foamy mouthfeel. 80/100.

Pours with a bright golden color and a very large, nice white head. The nose is ripe banaas, belgian yeast, some honey and malts. Taste is as nice as the nose: Malt and fruits, again the ripe bananas. yeast, very light bitterness. Medium lasting finish. Good stuff.

Look: Looks like honey

Smell: Light, fresh, pleasant

Taste: Fruity (banana), apple cinnamon after taste

Not bad, but I personally felt it was too sweet. Plus I am not a huge fan of banana flavored drinks.

Leffe Blonde. Overall a beer I would have to just to be nice to whoever ordered it for me. Too strong when it comes to the smells of Belgium yeast. Does pour a nice head though.
