Spina all’Oca Nera, "Leffe Rouge", bevuta da Nicoletta, io l’ho appena assaggiata: all’inizio pensavo fosse la Ruby francese con la frutta, poi quando è arrivata credevo fosse la Brune, ma ho visto che faceva 6.6 ed era decisamente più blanda. è un nuovo prodotto, niente di emozionante, ma potabile.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Mallaskukko. Dark copper, tiny pale head. Sweet syrupy nose, little dates, hint of metal and alcohol, mostly just sweet dates. Flavor has same sugary dates, pleasant balanced herbs, suryp, hint of banana, simple but surprisingly good. Medium bodied, average soft carbonation. Pretty good for a Leffe, easy syrupy beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught@Belge) Clear amber with a small, but firm, lacy and lasting head. Aroma of caramel and berries. Flavor is berry-fruity and neutral with a touch of yeast, well hidden alcohol, and no character. Almost medium body, lowish carbonation. Could as well be Palm Speciale, or any other generic Belgian macro brown ale. Has a quite strong berryish accent, though.
