I am trying different brands of this style and found this to be almost misplaced. Although a nice looking amber ale, I found the taste to be out of the norm for the style. It reminded me of a hoppy version of Amber Bock, but with a little more complex ale flavor. The esters and fruitiness of traditional Belgian ale yeasts do not come through in this beer. Some may like it but I will pass for a Leffe Blonde any day...
