3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very nice belgian, I can’t help but be somewhat critical of it as the flavor was a little flat, no frills affair. I think I noticed a little bit of a corn-type flavor in this one, where I expected something a little sweeter and in keeping with other Belgian ales. Maybe this one is more like a bitter, nice palate, and yeasty aroma.

Very smooth with a distinctive yeast taste. Had it out of the tap at a nice pub in Edinburgh. Very full creamy head.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the bottle and from my buddy Matt who was generous enough to bring me two of these back from Chicago. The first one was downed sometime after the Superbowl!?! But this one...is all mine! Smooth and clear with a golden hue. Nice white head and good lacing. Apples, wood and citrus yeast in the nose. Zesty and lively yet somewhat dulled, but not in a bad way! To elaborate...zesty from the citrus and carbonation, yet the banana flavor somewhat rounds out the flavor. A lot of Belgian notes, but a slighty German Hefeweizen note. Alcohol is there, and yet it is easy to drink. I’ve heard a lot about Leffe, but this is the first that I have rated. What can I say? Smooth and flavorful.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours medium gold with a light white head. Aroma of bread, alcohol and yeast. Much the same in flavor. A little thin on the palate, but not too bad.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours golden yellow. Opens sweet and dry with faint hops following. There is an unpleasant and very strong aroma of medicine (phenols perhaps?) that very much ruins this beer for me.

A Mes rate:
A true connoisseur beer... Mixed with some penicyllin (sp?). Nothing spectacular about it in any way.
