Here comes yet another disappointment.
Even though this beer is categorised as “dopplebock” (double-bock) it’s not what I expected. To be honest, when I ordered it, I thought it was a “dark beer” with the bitter taste and sweet aftertaste; unfortunately it’s sweet all-along, and I like my alcochol bitter.
The disappointment came with the smell that spread out quickly after opening the bottle - I sensed it will be sweet. I can’t say much, but it’s not as sweet as French beer are (reffering to Bazelbuth, Adel Stout and Douglas Celtic Brown which were the disappointments of the summer), so I’m managing my way to the bottom of the mug. Mattering the foam, it actually has no taste at all. It’s feels as some synthetic piece of air.
But, to make a shiny point in this all nonsense, I just love it’s blood-red color! It’s only my “misfortune” that Leffe Radieuse was my first red beer, and it tasted bloody good (read: it was BITTER!)
Sorry for not being objective, but out of all beers that I’ve ever tasted - in sweet beers I cannot enjoy. I’m also sorry for the friend of mine who spent days trying to find this beer in Germany for me. I’m also sorry that I have no Guinness in the fridge as I’m lurking for some now…
