5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Served in a snifter from a 330ml bottle. Pours clear deep-rose colour with a pink head. Aroma is a very intriguing combination of cherries, strawberries and rose petals. Taste follows the nose with cherry, strawberry and yet again rose petals notes, subtle sour-sweet finish with rose petals flavour lingering for a while. Medium body with medium carbonation. Despite the overall rating here I personally find this one is one of the most intriguing and unusual fruity beers ever tasted. The presence of rose petals in both the aroma and the taste is something I really adore about this lovely brew. Extremely nice, refreshing, not too sweet and definitely unusual beer!!!

I’m not fond of most Leffe products on the market, in fact, I try to avoid most of ’em, Grimbergen will always win the fight for me even if it’s not significantly better. However, this one is pretty okay for what it worth. Clearly better than most aromatized beers available in supermarkets, the Ruby has a sweet taste, not too present, and is quite easy to drink. It tends to be a bit boring however after 50cl, but it’s a good choice for casual drinks along with other affordable beers. Just avoid this one in large quantity.

On tap - medium clear red with small white head. Very heavy scented aroma, light perfume. Slight ting on tongue, ok in mouth. Sweet tasting, though better than other fruit beers. Drinkable but wouldn’t go for again.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso è indirizzato verso la frutta rossa. L’intensità olfattiva è elevata e la persistenza olfattiva è apprezzabile. Il cappello a bollicine medie e carbonazione abbondante è di schiuma cremosa ed aderente. L’aspetto del liquido è velato. La frizzantezza è abbondante, persistente ed insistita. Il colore è ambrato carico tendente rossiccio. Il corpo è pieno. Il dolce è pesante, al contrario dell’amaro, che è leggero. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono lunghe e di birra beverina. Il finale è lungo, secco e dissetante. Il tetto della bocca riporta sentori di miele, fiori e frutta.

On tap @ Lyon. Ruby color, no head. Berries in aroma, but somehow it’s artificial, reminds of soap. The taste is the same, too sweet. Short finish, light carbonation, easily drinkable.
