Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 22, 2013
THOUGHTS: Way better than I thought it would be. Much more complex than I would have thought for something owned by AB InBev. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium, golden with nice carbonation and an average, somewhat rocky, ever so slightly off-white head that mostly diminished and left good lacing. The aroma contained moderate, light bread, pale malt and cracker; moderate spicy and fruity yeast; grape; pear; white wine; honey; and apricot. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and slightly acidic; while the finish was moderately sweet, slightly sour, moderately acidic and lightly bitter with an average duration. There was pale malts, cracker, spicy yeast, slight hops, fruity yeast, a little citrus, perfume hops, white wine, grape, pear, apricot. The light to medium body was sort of syrupy and then dry with very fizzy carbonation and not much of a finish.

330ml bottle @ home. Pours clear dark gold with a thin, creamy white head. Spice and yeast aromas. Flavors are wheat, yeast, light citrus, bubblegum, clove. Light bodied with medium carb. Medium banana finish. Very drinkable, light style Belgian.

I’ve had this beer several times previously, yet never rated it. This 12-ounce bottle, compliments of my brother in law, Dave, pours a clear gold with small white soap-bubble head and lacing, along with lots of visible south-to-north carbonation. Aroma: honey, lemon, some barnyard. Flavor: malt-forward; honey, biscuit, banana, clove. Mouthfeel: medium-bodied, creamy finish. A decent transitional Belgian beer for my non-Belgian-beer-drinking friends.

Una cerveza de alta fermentación belga mundialmete conocida. Su color es dorado y totalmente transparente, con una espuma blanca de buena retención.En su aroma y sabor predomina la levadura, que le da un carácter dulce, para mi gusto excesivo. La carbonatación es media y se nota más en boca, dandole un toque picante y refrescante. Una cerveza simple, que para la masificación que ha conseguido está bien. Para mi no está al nivel de las grandes cervezas belgas, pero es aceptable.

The standard Belgium beer. Can’t go wrong with it, but it doesn’t quite wow you.

eunck (213) - Hamburg, Hamburg, GERMANY - JUL 11, 2017
Clear amber beer with basically no head. Very complex and full aroma of several estery fruits, most notably banana, and other notes that seem somewhat artificial, almost like insectizide. The beer brings more to the nose than to the mouth though and when the nose gets used to the aroma, one could think he were drinking a Heller Bock. The beer has this thick palate that can almost be called oily, but not quite. Very drinkable altogether and ertainly more interesting than a thin Lager.

Leffe Blonde piłem ostatnio 12 lat temu, więc ciężko mi porównać obie degustacje ;) Barwa bursztynowa, idealnie klarowne. Piana spora, drobna. biała. Aromat drożdżowy, owocowy. W smaku słodowe, drożdżowe, z mocnym akcentem owoców. Wysycenie wysokie. Całkiem smaczne.

Op fles en tap gedronken. Favoriet blond bier van mij. Redelijk zoet aroma. Mooie goud gele kleur. Erg helder. Zowel zoet als bitter.

Very tasty Belgian Ale. Easy to drink, very refreshing and has a clean finish. This is a little sweeter than the other Leffe beer, the dark ale. Both are good beers IMO.
