Salmaneser (46) - BELGIUM - JAN 10, 2015
Drank at home, 33 cl bottle. Orange/amber beer, aroma of fruits with something leatherish. Bitter aftertaste. Good beer from Leffe, but the blond is better.

Kleurplaatje (85) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2015
Pour clear orange with a nice, lasting white head. Aroma is predominantly malty with some yeast and some roastiness, bit hoppy as well. Bit alcoholic. Typical Leffe-ish if you ask me. Something dusty as well. Weird. After all, the nose isn’t that unpleasant. Taste is sweetish. Yeasty with a banana touch, there’s a bit of a hoppy dash. Some warming alcohol in the slightly dry finish as well, and that’s it. After a while the brew gets a bit metallic and acidic in the mouth. The aftertaste is missing anything and all you want is just another sip to ’kill’ the acidic, sourish bites on your tongue. Thinnish texture, bit of a watery mouthfeel and overcarbonated. Not the worst beer ever, but nothing special as well. Mediocre brew that misses a lot of refinement.

sblsimone85 (334) - USA - JAN 6, 2015
Color giallo dorato, tendente all’ambrato, la schiuma, di color bianco neve, è ben persistente. Al naso, prevale lo speziato soprattutto il pepato poi frutta bianca tipo pesca e note mielose. Al palato prevale il dolce fruttato mieloso. Una leggera frizzantesca inebria la bocca e ne aiuta la beverinità. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2015 Très forte en aromes, nez sur banane, une agreable touche d?epices, vanille au palais , une finale mi longue et peu amère en fait un très bonne bière d?hiver.

Much like the blonde. Slightly more bitter and with a touch more of a sour aftertaste. Very nice.
