3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Presentation: Brown bottle, 330 ml. The neck and the crown cap are wrapped with golden foil, bearing some crowns on it.
ABV 7,5%. Poured into a tulip at home.
Very nice colour, deep golden, very close to orange to be more specific, with a huge three finger head on top, white in colour, thick and creamy. Very good retention after losing its 2/3 of height. Average activity in the glass.
Light aroma of dark fruits and yeast.
Taste is quite sweet and fruity, mostly dark fruits, plums, some raisins too, with a slighty metalic aftertaste.
Medium body and high carbonation. Quite dry on the palate. Alcohol very well hidden.
A good beer but a bit overpriced for what it offers.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells more of yeast than Leffe Blond, tastes more sourish and feels less balanced. A nice enough beer, especially to food, but nothing to write home about.

Zacht, zwaar blond bier zonder bijzonder smaak karakter. Afdronk lang en prettig. Geur valt tegen.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is roasty like toffee, with hops of grass. Pours clear, amber orange with a minimal white head. The taste is medium sweet, like champagne. Carbonation also is soft, champagne-like. Oily texture like the normal Leffe. Long finish. Makes for a good special Leffe, if you like Leffe Blond, you will like this as a special Leffe.

Een flinke onvoldoende

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml black bottle in a 6 pack from Casino, Marseille. More malt, more hops, more flavour, more strength and a fuller mouthfeel in a prestigious black bottle. A recipe for success for one of the most successful brands in Europe? No - it lacks the balance, the delicacy, and the sheer joy of the regular blonde Leffe. It will sell as a prestige beer for special occasions, but not in the volume of the blonde.
