Visual: Color ambar tirando a rojizo. Es transparente pero sin llegar a ser cristalina, de fluidez normal, poca vivacidad del gas y con burbujas finas. La espuma tiene poca densidad y persistencia, y es de color blanco pálido.

Aroma: Predomina el aroma a frutos rojos, particularmente fresas. La malta es muy suave y el lúpulo casi inapreciable. Percibo un sutil aroma a alcohol. El aroma a fresas es intenso y persistente. Puede percibirse como artificial o medicinal.

En boca: También predominan los sabores intensos a frutos rojos, en especial fresas y bayas. El sabor de la malta es muy suave, y el lúpulo inapreciable al igual que la levadura. Se percibe cierta acidez cítrica en boca. El amargor es leve y poco persistente, ya que predomina el dulzor de los adjuntos.

Was trying to avoid this one, but finally succumbed to reviewing.

This really does look like a fizzy cherry-ade pop, bright clear red body, with a pink foamy head.

Smell is it's best feature, light fresh and fruity.

Taste is a little tart and highly carbonated. 5% abv is still as strong as some premium pilsners.

Might be ok on a scorching hot day after a 50 mile crawl on hands and knees through the Sahara desert, but failing that this is for all intents and purposes an alco-pop.

The worst offering from Leffe.....they should drop it IMO

Picked up at Asda in Dyce.
Poured a bright and clear ruby with a fizzy pinkish head.
Nose was bright and fruity, with raspberry, tart cherry and mulberry potpourri in the background.
Flavor matched the nose. Juicy and tart with an abundance of red berries and a touch of citrus.
Bubbly and lively carbonated. Overall, decent.

Pinkish amber color with a thick head with great retention.
Aroma with notes of strawberry, grapes, Brazilian jabuticaba, but actually it is a mix of several red and some dark fruits including elderberry.
Sweet flavor with notes of multiple berries (raspberries, strawberries, elderberries), a bit of cloves, cherry drops and maybe a bit of banana from their traditional yeast. Dry aftertaste with a mild sour aftertaste.
Light body with a slightly effervescent carbonation.
Average Fruit beer. It feels sweet and a bit juicy/artificial taste rather than fruity, but it has a good complexity of multiple berries.

Drank on tap in Bar Belge, Paris.

A: The body is purely cristalline with a ruby body. The head is white, one finger thick. The aspect is interesting.
S: The aroma is very rich. The smell of cherry is very sweet being on top of rhe hoppiness and the yeasty profiles. Very good indeed.
T: The taste is interesting because most fruit beers I've had so far weren't this good. Leffe Ruby is very very rich in cherry, to an amount that goes beyond description. The end is a bit weird because the sweetness and the minor profile of bitterness don't connect very well but in overall it's good.
M: The body is low to high. Carbonation is visible but not too prominent.
O: Finally a fruit beer I can relate with.

On tap at a cafe in Paris, served in 25 cl Leffe chalice. Pours bright, clear, pale red with a frothy head of slightly pink foam. Smell and taste of red fruit (raspberry, strawberry, cherry), medicinal herbs and faint Belgian yeast. Runs a bit sweet, though offset a bit with decent bitterness: cherry cough drops. Medium body with lighter carbonation. Refreshing and easy to drink, though candy sweetness steers it towards soda territory.
