3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear brown color and a huge head. Yeasty tones amidst a malty body. Vanilla flavors and a spicy end (cloves?). Maybe a little toffee tucked away in the middle. Full mouth feel and a creamy texture. Good smooth drinking beer.

Can't look at the label without thinking of the beer machine that was in the warehouse I once worked in - had Leffe sticker prominantly placed on it. Might even have had one loaded in it at some point. Not my favored Belgian, but a great launching place in my beer geekifikashun.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Musty yeast, pear, tropical fruit and toast aromas with occasional solventy fumes. Sweet flavour with a faint caramelised roasty bitterness. Mouthfeel variable but a bit thin in places. Varies from mouthful to mouthful. Inviting aroma but the rest is lacking.

Beer pours (in flute glass) a dark reddish-brown liquid with a small amount of caramel colored head that dissipates quickly leaving a thin film. Aroma is of whiskey, sweet, and hops. Flavor is of whiskey, straw, grass, and overall watery, and weak. Sampled at 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
