11.2oz. bottle served in my Ommegang tulip. Pours a brownish-mahogany hue with a dense, three-inch, tan-colored head that eventually settles into a frothy mass - textured clumps of lacing are exposed during the tasting. Nose is somewhat subdued - nutmeg/allspice, medium-toasted malts and a suggestion of yeast. Taste follows nose; however, malty quality is a bit more assertive in the flavor profile. There is also just the merest hint of toffee. Mouthfeel is medium-light with an assertive carbonation. Overall, a pretty good beer. Spiciness is definitely reminiscent of the Blonde; however, the malt profile definitely makes it distinctive in its own right.

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.
