Tiene un color dorado muy limpio, los olores al momento que la abres son súper notables y agradables, buena cantidad de carbonatación, y tiene buena retención de sabor una vez que la tomas

Drank in Café Le Patron, Amsterdam and poured to a small Leffe glass.

A: The body is cristalline yellow with a white head that has no retention but some lacing.
S: The aroma is totally not expected for a BSPA. But it's the hops that are providing a base for this aroma, not expected and not that great.
T: There are so many wrong things with this beer. IPAs made by a belgian brewery does not match at all and the taste is strange to say the last because of that.
M: The body has some gasification but it's medium to low. Not that great for what I'm accostumed by Leffe.
O: The worst Leffe beer I've had by far.

A muscled up version of Leffe Blonde, boozier and sweeter. Pretty big head, lots of chunky lace to start. Clear gold below. Sugary banana nose w/a hint of alcohol. Similar flavor profile. Lots of sugary banana, noticeable alcohol, but not at all harsh. Noticeable Belgian yeast character. Alcohol is nicely integrated, but you can feel it creep up on you.

Better warm than cold, so you can pick up the nuance. A bit of an intro Belgian, sweet, simple, no particularly rough edges.
