Ruby with nice foamy head. Aroma weak on the nose, but can trace some sweet fruit, malt. Taste sweet fruit, candymalt, some bitter hops, and yet quit neutral, almost watery. Medium body, smooth. Easy and drinkable but could use some more character/alcohol.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nut-brown beer pours with minimal bright red cast. There is a lot long-lasting fine foam. The smell is malty, roasty and slightly acidic. Starts with lots of caramel malt, pleasantly sweet in the background. The finish is very cloying, slightly fermented fruit. Very good beer, but tastes much too much like the Leffe Brune.
