Two beers
« on: January 04, 2011, 10:48:24 PM »
So I'm researching tonight and up for my perusal is Leffe Blonde and Wittekerke white beer. The Wittekerke 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.

yeah - not a fan of that one - I like Grimbergen Blonde much,much better.

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.
