2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber brown clear body. Soap-reminding foam which decays very very quickly and is very unappealing. Taste is bitterness and leathery, not good at all. In the aftertaste there is a hint of sour cherries which makes up for a bit of the awfulness. Overall not a good beer.

this is actually what I expect in a christmas beer. a darker color that could be called amber. sweet caramel with a slight bitter background. Medium to big sized maltiness. fun beer to try since I’ve never seen this one around bitburg, germany.

This dark brown beer poured with a generous fluffy beige head and a toffee aroma this is pretty good for a Leffe. There is a nice roasted malt flavor with some bitterness at the finish.
