Title: Two beers
Post by: euge on January 05, 2011, 05:48:24 AM
So I'm researching tonight and up for my perusal is Leffe Blonde and Wittekerke white beer. The Wittekerke (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_World_Beer_Cup_awards#Belgian-Style_White_.28or_Wit.29_.2FBelgian-Style_Wheat) is in a blue can. But don't let it fool you. Excellent. Citrusy and quenching.

The Leffe is very Belgiany with strong clove and very bright. I don't like it as much. :-[

wittekerke is good. 

you do realize Leffe is a belgian blonde/patersbier while Wittekerke is a witbier, though right?

your comments seem to infer that you were comparing the two?

Only in the sense that they are both Belgian. That's why it wasn't Wittekerke vs Leffe. :)

The Leffe I'd heard great things about. Too bad I'm disappointed with it.

Man I love Leffe. Just don't know how to say it.  :-[


Edit: had to go check ratebeer.com to see if I am crazy. This thread is skewed with Leffe haters.  :-\

In my personal opinion Leffe sucks :o   

Barely good enough to wash away cottonmouth, even when its less than 1e  per can in every supermarket.
