Poured from 11.2oz, brown bottle into glass. Label is marked Best Before End: 17/08/19. Label indicates this bottle of beer was brewed in Belgium and imported into the U.S.
Clear, ruby brown colored body, with one finger off white head, which leaves behind spots and strings of lacing.
Roasted malts and caramel in the aroma, with a touch of molasses.
Very smooth taste of roasted malts, with flavors of caramel and molasses. Has sweeter, higher, lighter notes that point to a dark, dried fruit. Light yeast notes at the very end, as they waft away. In the end, this is like a semi-sweet cola with alcohol.
Medium to heavy mouth feel. Good carbonation.
Easy to drink, semi sweet dark Belgian ale.

You can throw away all of the ratings pre-July 2018.

I just picked up a case of Leffe Brüne, my all time favorite for over a decade. The case looked totally different. On closer inspection, it wasn’t imported and the date is American format, not European. Well... gotta give it a shot.

It tastes nothing like Leffe Brüne. Turns out that InBev is brewing it in the USA. The new formula has none of the flavor and dark complexity of the old Leffe. The dominant taste is a distasteful bitter flavor, Anheuser-Busch InBev has completely destroyed a wonderful brew.

Clear very dark bronze with a tall frothy tan head, lacy, persistent; Pleasant smell, but not strong; Feels smooth and tangy; Lovely rich full-bodied flavor but nothing distinctive that I can name, a little sweet and a little bitter; I really like this ale.
