Pours a crystal clear gold. A lot of carbonation visible. Big head that fades slowly.
First Sip: Sweet caramels and malt up front. Fruit and some breadyness lurking in the background. Almost no hops. There is a brief after-taste of raw alcohol which fades to a fruitiness. Mouth feel is thin but creamy, with a some of carbonation.
This is oddly sweet; it's almost like drinking beery mead. It's nice but you'd have to be in the mood to drink it, such as a "That was a nice meal, now for some dessert" type of mood. It does leave a nice warming feel in the belly. Definitely not one to drink chilled because the flavours become more pronounced as it warms. I certainly wouldn't have a session with this. I'd end up feeling all... gunky.

Same again, sir? Hmm... it's a cold night and I'm in front of the fire. Should I have a port? No! A Leffe Blonde will hit the spot!
