Leffe was the first 'real' Belgian beer I tried although it was the Blond and not the Brunette I had then. Leffe seem to get some bad press because it's part of InBev and perhaps because it is now available in all the supermarkets so it doesn't have the elite status of Fenwicks Old Hairy Knob or whatever.
Well this Bruin is very tasty I have to say and perhaps a good introduction to Belgian beers without putting someone off by giving them something stronger. It had an enormous head when I poured it but that could be because it wasn't cold. Great colour too. What more do you need?
Would I buy it again?
