Very pretty dark rose color to this belgian. The flavor was fruity and slightly bitter, went down without much bite.

neilrichards (191) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2002
A very good, flavoursome beer. Slightly bitter flavours are complemented by an excellent aroma. As with the Leffe Blonde, ths beer leaves a slightly dry palate.

Looks like Coca-Cola. Sweet, light bodied, creamy. Clean. Some butterscotch aroma.

Belgik (72) - Sterrebeek, BELGIUM - FEB 22, 2002
Very fine and consistant light-brown foam over a very dark red-brown brew with rather few bubbles. Malty aroma of cereals with very little fruitiness. Good mouth-foam, followed by good-dobied slightly malty and bitter flavor. Good body and balance with rather apparent bitter in the end. More like Trappist beer, this one, but not up to par with the good ones.

Ernest (6259) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2002
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (dark bread, dark chocolate, roasted, caramel), moderately yeasty (mold). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, dry and creamy texture, lively carbonation. There is something unclean in the flavor (despite having a decent overall profile)...my guess is it’s the type of yeast, as I recall having the same ’something’s not quite right about the yeast’ reaction to the blonde.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2003 Re-rate: Pours delightful with is light brown stirofoam head and a deep, deep brown colour. Great malty and yeasty taste that is sweet yet has an off-dry finish.
