3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A Belgian Pale Ale for the masses. Medium-sized head, light golden colour. Malty flavor and aroma. Fresh and easy to drink like a pilsner (but mind the alcohol!), with a full, smooth, firm taste. May not be the most complex or rich ale around, but I really love this one. It's also not too difficult to find here in Milan, which is definitely a good thing when it comes to belgian beers.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2007 Creamy and the sweetest blonde I have had. High quality, a slight aftertaste is its only drawback. Great

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale yellow colour, with a good, persistent head. Lightly fruity and malty taste, with a sweet aftertaste. Very refreshing!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The most "mainstram" belgian ale I've tried. Anonymously yellow with a firm head and obvious sweetness. The staleness of the other belgians are not so evident. This one is actually refreshing like a beer should be.

Nice beer. pale yellow color, small white head, thick and permanent. Belgian fruitiness, malty aroma, taste of bananas is strong, slight spiciness but still a m,ild beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured and smelled beautiful into my Leffe Chalice that came with it. Floral hop smell, and taste is citrus sour complimented with a malty sweetness. Decent all around beer and hides the high ABV quite nicely.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Quite average. How could this have rated so highly? It is pretty watery and flavourless rich girl beer (I had to put Hall and Oates on as soon as I slammed it down). A brew for people who don't like the taste of beer, and are relieved to open a bottle of carbonated mineral water with a hint of sugar. Refreshing? Who cares: so is shoveling ice cream down me pants.
