4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours an opaque coffee brown with frothy light tan tinged head. Aroma is a mix of mild raisin notes, almond, roasted grains, multigrain bread. Flavor is a very mild note of scotch, some brown sugar but the sweetness is awesomely balanced. Nice notes of freshly baked bread with notes of sugar. Body is balanced, light and creamy with high carbonation - just like a belgian beer should have :-) lovely

Leffe Brune is one of those imports that’s pretty easy to locate and not too expensive. Better yet, it’s also damn tasty. A beautiful brown color and a tight, robust head grab your attention from the start. Aroma is estery and rich though it could be a little bigger. The flavor really is the selling point, just as it ought to be. Multidimensional maltiness with candy-like sweetness and dark fruits at the beginning. The syrupy middle is redolent of plum and corn - I’m impressed to say that it’s not at all cloying. Finish is sticky and bit spicy. Though the carbonation is nice and lively in this brew, it gets a little intense toward the end. Of course, it also helps to cut through the full body and dense sugars. Brune may not be the most special or rare Belgian Ale but it’s an excellent abbey beer from a 12 ounce bottle.

Pours chestnut brown with a small light brown, quickly dissolving head. Malty, bread-like aroma. Sweet, full malty taste, hints of hazlenut.. Slightly bitter, but short finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A clear brown body covered by a large not quite white head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass. Nose has notes of syrup, yeast and some spiciness. Taste starts off with a pleasant honey-like sweetness but is then followed by a fairly strong and lonng lasting bitterness. Carbonation is high and the mouthfeel overall on the fuller side. Overall a nice good beer but the heavy bitterness feels a bit out of place.

Awesome beer. It has a fruity and chocolate aroma. Deep brown color, with great head and super lacing. It’s clear. In taste it’s a bit sweet, a bit chocolate and fruity as well. Great one!

33cl bottle. Served in a trappist glass. Pours brown with white head. Actually it looked this time that head changes color from brown to white. Not my favorite dubbel. I usually buy it every other year. Yeasty and earthy. Slightly thinner then expected. Massively sold everywhere, and that is good. You can have some decent dubbel amidst lagers.
