Benfi (532) - DENMARK - FEB 20, 2013
Pours a hazy golden/light amber with a massive white head, aroma is vibrant with yeast, orange pith, and spices. Taste is slightly metallic, wheat, with some booze on the end, really thick foamy mouthful.

R2k2 (338) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 18, 2013
Nice, sweet aroma with a touch of alcohol. Nice dark honey-colored beer with a white layer of foam. Nice bitter taste with a little touch of licorice on the background. The aftertaste is also bitter, with a dry aftertaste. Heerlijk, zoet aanwezig aroma met de zwoele toets van alcohol. Mooie donkere honingkleurig bier, met een mooie witte schuimkraag. Lekkere bittere smaak met een lichte dropsmaak op de achtergrond. De nasmaak is eveneens bitter en heeft een droge afdronk.

hawthorne00 (2399) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 16, 2013
Golden amber with a white head that’s soon a coat. Aroma is doughy and herbal with raw sugar, banana, cloves. Smooth and very sweet with pepper and herbs at the end as bitterness emerges. Nothing wrong with it, nothing interesting about it.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2013 Apart from the more lightness and a more filtered appearance I did not see much of a difference fro the Blonde. And I still prefer the Blonde and not only just because of the price.

langeveld12 (216) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2013
Pours a small frothy light brown head that mostly diminishes. Body is clear and sparkling, hue is amber. Aroma contains grape, raisin, caramel, dough, spices and alcohol. Flavor starts off light acidic, to go to sweet and to finish in bitter and a bit boozy alcohol. Body is light with watery texture and fizzy carbonation. Aroma is promising, but drinking it is a bit a disappointment. It is a bit flat in the flavors (low complexity) and I don't really like the malty aftertaste. A fine beer to drink on an evening out, not recommended for enjoying a beer at home.

GSAP (489) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2013
Mild is hier op zijn plaats, met tevens zijn karakteristieke Leffe laag op smaak en aroma. Aroma is licht fruitig en bloemen. Smaak idem met meer pit en wat metaal. Afdronk is bittermetaal, co2 is behoorlijk. Stevige kraag. In de zomer wellicht meer succes als doordrinker op terras.

Bottled 330ml. -Darker golden coloured, small white head, yeasty fruity nose. Moderate malty, yeasty, spicy and slight alcoholic with pleasant fruity notes. Mild spicy alcoholic finish. Quite nice.

Bottle. Golden with a dense White head. Typical Belgian spice notes. Some citrus, some coriander seeds. Reminiscent of Leffe Blonde. Solid. I’ve fond memories of Leffe as it was somewhat of a gateway beer to the Belgian style all those years ago so whenever I see a new one, I always feel the need to grab it. I think my favourite to date has been the Radieuse.
