The following is taken from the Legacy website's beer descriptions:

"The Bruin Ale is our version of a classic Dark Farmhouse Flemish Ale. The appearance is a hazy dark brown with a nice creamy head. The initial smell of nuts and toffee fades into a fruity aroma from the Belgian ale - a Saison yeast blend. The phenolic, spicy, earthy, and clove-like flavors blend nicely with the dark caramel malts for a smooth flavor and dry finish."

A dark brown body that is about the same shade as an original flavor of soda. A very small off-white head that doesn't leave behind a ton of lacing.

Smells predominantly of sweet, caramel and toffee malt. A touch of yeasty aroma.

Taste is predominantly sweet caramel malts also, lots of them. Start to finish they dominate. However, the yeast characteristics are noticeable in background adding a touch of phenol and some clove like flavor. This tastes a lot like an American brown ale; I would probably prefer a litte bit more pronounced yeast characteristics.

A pretty thin body with a medium carbonation.

Fairly drinkable beer, solid yet not spectacular.
