thegreenrooster (3820) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 15, 2008
Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is very musty and earthy with some candi sugar and dark fruit. Flavor is some burnt brown sugar and dark fruit with a little vinegar. Finish is no problem as the flavors are somewhat dulled as this goes down. Still this is a somewhat tasty Belgian and something to at least try for the aroma alone.

Very nice beer, picked up in Bruges. Carmelized brouwn sugar, butterscotch, and a bit of smoky hops make up for an eminently drinkable brew.

Pinball (11793) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2008
nice and quite balanced aroma. looks great, dark dark clear brown, light brown fine head. taste is sweet and "belgian" alc dominates more than neccessary, however, the rest is very well balanced.

notalush (5626) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Pours a rich, dark red, with a frothy, lasting, 1-finger off-white head - the aroma is an interesting, complex, but soft mixture of overripe fruit sweetness, and lightly tart apple and cherry skins - a little bit of earth and must add depth - the flavor is a bit on the sweet side, with none of the tartness the aroma hints at - still, it isn’t bad - brown sugar, baked apples, raisins, and cherries are all in the mix to make things interesting - there is a tiny bit of the earthy character from the aroma present - dries out a little in the finish, as notes of cocoa become apparent - a little bit of alcohol heat on the back end - quite an understated brew - if the flavor were more like the aroma, it would be a home run.

RSRIZZO (1931) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Aroma is candy sweet with a fruit tone. Color is a near solid amber with a big tall tight tan head. Taste is rich, sweet and fruity. Starting with a medium body it goes down with a rich sweet feel. Finish comes in sweet with brown sugar and dried fruit flavors, then a very faint bitterness with a slight orange peel taste. After taste is more sugar, then after a bit it seems a little dry. This is a very good brew, but it comes across a little sweet and sugary.

BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2008
I was expecting and hoping for an Oude Brune sour brown ale when I ordered this from the very long bottle list at the Palm Tavern in Milwaukee. While this beer wasn’t the sourness I was really hoping for, I still can’t really fault it - it was pleasantly malty and fruity in almost a quad type of flavor profile. I thought it to be pretty good. It poured a brilliant brown color, which was not quite transparent. Aroma was raisins, some cherriness, and some citrus. Flavor wasn’t sour, but offered lots of dried fruit, some citrus, and a lot of evidence of darker roasted malts. Mouthfeel was dry and crisp. This wasn’t what I was expecting, but it was good enough to make me try some other Lefebvre beers. I would recommend this beer. I had this from a bottle at the Palm Tavern in Bayview, WI.
