I tried the Leffe Brune in a Sam Adams tasting glass. The shade of brown is toward the darker of the style. A fine, creamy light tan head fully lasted ten minutes though there was some through to the end. This sent is nutty and like caramel. ( The unique nuttiness is reminiscent of the Leffe Blonde Ale.) To my pallet there is a slight sour aftertaste I could do without. The beer would be better with a steak.

Bottle gifted my Matt. Thanks! Served in a goblet. Beer is brown and hazy with a tan head small bubbles. Some lacing, moderate carbonation, nice retention. 

Aroma is estery and sweet. Nice yeast. 

Beer is sweet and bready. Nice finish light in body. Mildly nuttiness / roast. I'd have it again.

Served on tap at Brabant Belgian Brasserie in New York, NY

A: Pours a semi-opaque dark brown, almost cola-like in color. The beer has a finger tall creamy light tan head that slowly reduces to a thin film with some thicker patches and a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Significant lacing is observed.

S: There are aromas of caramel, some dark fruit, and slightly lower amount of spices (though the spice is still present, just not as intense as the caramel and dark fruit).

T: The flavor for this beer really follows the smell, there is a very pleasant sweetness from the caramel and the dark fruit, along with just a hint of the spices, and a light bitterness in the finish.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: This beer is very enjoyable, very easy to drink, and could be a good session beer. It drank really smoothly and it is definitely one that I would enjoy having again. This beer is well balanced.

Serving type: on-tap
