I'm a fan of the other Leffe products and was pretty excited to try this one. 330ml bottle, black and gold label. Poured into a Corsendonk glass.

A: A perfect blend of gold/amber, a rich appearance.... minimal head that sticks to the glass.

S: Very similar to Leffe Blonde, not very strong. Picking up on some orange and spice.

T: Again similar to the blonde, at first. Sweeter and richer though, again the orange, and a nice alcoholic finish. Very well balanced.

M: Surprisingly full, light carbonation, a little dry.

O: The bottom line is that if you are a fan of the blonde and the brune like I am, this is a must try. If you don't like those products, then this one probably won't do it for you either. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

A: yellow-amber colour, small head, clear

S: orange, pineapple, banana, some spice, a lot of sugar

T: sweet, bready, there is some orange and banana, hint of hops, alcoholic finish

M: dry, undercarbonated, alcoholic

O: while it doesn't taste or smell that bad, it's just not that enjoyable because it's undercarbonated

Hazy deep amber/golden with a rich , thick off-white head. Nose is yeasty and spicy with notes of coriander and banana. Taste is sweet and slightly bitter. Medium/light body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Banana and gummi bonbons on palate (almost like a hefe). Sweet and bitter finish.
