Beer # 193 De Molen Lief & Leed

The 1st time I tasted  Lief and Leed was on tap during our tour at Brouwerij De Molen in October 2012. My initial impression was that of a souped-up Rodenbach Grand Cru (Flemish Red Ale). I liked the beer so much at that time that I purchased a few bottles to bring home, including the one I’m having now. Can’t wait to return to De Molen in October were we will be having a tour of the brewery as well as a beer paired dinner!
