Found this beer to be alot like the Leffe Blonde, had a distinct hint of citrus rind in the after taste.

As a big fan of this style, I was excited to finally get this one in our state and bought one to try. While I didn't have the famous glass, I had one similar. My impressions were mixed; I maight tend to believe that I got an "aged" bottle after reading these other reviews. It just didn't seem as complex as some of the other Belgians and had almost no head, with almost a sour taste. That being said, it was pretty good, although not my favorite of the style.

330ml, 8.4%. Dark ale with small head when poured that disappears quickly. Sweet and strong. Barley malt and hops are dominant flavours. Enjoyable

Famous for its glass. Malty, hoppy, something bitter.

This isn’t bad, but nothing I would recommend. Taste and aroma are okay for the style. [short review due to it coming from my backlog]

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cerveja de coloração avermelhada. Espuma cor de creme e densa. Aroma frutado, várias frutas, pêssegos, uva e licor. Sabor frutado, com notas de frutas passas, damasco, caramelos. O aroma e o melhor que tem nessa cerveja, apesar do sabor bem marcante. Excelente.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper yellow color and a creamy head that did not last long, due to the form of the traditional glas that came with it.
Fruity tastes in good balance with the hop. Alcoholic but not exageratted.
The last sip will gush over your face when you’re drinking unattentive. Beware! Nice beer. Would ask for another kind of glas though.

Ver surprised by the 8%, it does not taste strong. A fruity banana aroma at first then becomes very sweet. Nice head when poured from bottle that lasts for a few sips. By the end of the glass sweetness was taking over.
