2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottled) Very hazy golden-amber color with a small but lasting head. Mild, slightly acidic and alcoholic aroma with grainy malt hints. Acidic, quite alcoholic flavor with an almost malt-liquourish finish. Medium-bodied, acidic, alcoholic and foamy-carbonated palate. I thought the infamous Leffe 9 was about at the rock bottom in the Belgian scale, but no - this is even worse! If I were you, I’d really steer clear of this crap...
