Given I am from Belgium, Leffe is a stapple in most bars and at all great parties. Not what people call a great beer, but what people drink very often because it is pleasing to most and quite reasonable in price. Also not a beer we typically drink to taste. So this is a first. Let's try to taste and describe this. The difference between the blond and brown is significant so for the refreshment qualities, I opt for the blonde.
I opened this one up for the mid day break and it poured just fine. The head was high at first but quickly disappeared to almost none. Maybe a sign...
Very low smell, but clean and beer smell (yep). A hint of banana maybe.
Great crisp gold/ copper color.

Definitely feels like it had better days, the fizz is almost absent.
However, taste is there. Not really a hoppy beer, there is some serious complexity to it and not for everyone. I don't know why I like it but I do. Not yeasty, some hints of fruits.
Damn. All gone. Let's go back to the fridge...I wish I could share these westies...That's a lot of them just for me...
