MrW (407) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2013
Lentebier: Some sips from a perfect draft machine at ABC drinks Leuven. Grassy, hay, fruity, some caramel and alcohol aroma (when warmer). Huge load (like always with these ’Perfect Draft’ machines) of creamy head, lasting very long, copper coloured beer. Caramel, fruity, bitter. No striking mouthfeel. Fruithoppy finish, bitter after a while.

Donkerblond bier, stevige schuimkraag die na enkele minuten is weggezakt. Ruikt fris en sterk, Zacht, licht tintelend palet, enigszins waterige body maar niet vervelend. Prettig op de tong. frisse en fruitige smaak, hint van noten. Zachtbittere nasmaak.

Theydon_Bois (8155) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2013
From a mini keg dispense device at Dranken Geers, Ghent, 23/03/13 as ’Lentebier’. Clear golden with a big biege head, excellent lacing ensues. Nose is malt forward, musty, grain, rye bread dough, light spice. Taste follows, some yeast, spice, rye, grain, bready. Medium bodied, fairly smooth on the palate, dryish finish. Ok average fayre.

Leighton (10702) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2013 Tap at Dranken Geers, Gent. Lovely for a Leffe. Caramel, bread, not too swet or boozy. Decent balance. Drinkable. (3.6)

Bottle as breakfast beer at Borefts basecamp - Utrecht. Pours clear copper with a big, frothy white head. Bit of that Leffe caramel and sugary malt character in the nose, along with yeast and brown bread. Medium sweet flavor with soft berries, light bitter leaves, herbs. Medium bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Sweet finish with herbal hops, moderately dry caramel. Pretty basic overall but OK.

ruigo (1062) - PORTUGAL - MAR 20, 2013
A marketing product that doesn’t add much to the already vast spectrum of beers from Leffe. Not a bad beer, but not the best they can do. A bit sweet too much.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2013 Another rate by memorie . Better than i thought , wich was - discusting- This was drinkable but oh so mediocer . as promised - rerating since i drank it again ! no change of score, still think its 3,5 . but i can, however, give more details. smell is floral, sweet (leffe blond-ish) . taste is floral, and , as always with leffe, discustingly mediocer and sweet. they keep fucking up their beers , WHY ?
