I find the regular blond Leffe rather boring, so I was pleasantly surprised by the brown Leffe. Slight mocha and toffee, strong but well-balanced, nice head. If you find it too hard or too bitter, you can add a bit of grenadine; it blends very nicely with this beer. I personally like it both ways depending on my mood.

Roasted malt, chocolaty aroma. Some hops are present.
Golden syrup/toffee sweetness. A weak coffee aroma.
Subtle flavours of chocolaty malt and hops. Some spiciness of licorice, maybe a bit peppery.
Medium bodied, almost no aftertaste.
Quite an average beer, but still very nice.

Looks like a coke in leffe glass. Medium tan head above a brown bubbly juice. Delicate aroma of rippen fruits highly sweet and alcoholic with some flower notes. Sweet rippen fruits like sweet wine with some malt and clove, later on some hoppy flavors. Creamy texture and nice pleasant aftertaste.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My favorite so far of the Leffe lineup. The pour is a lighter shade of brown/red. The head is un-impressive, beige. The nose is wonderfully fruity with hints of flowers and nuts. The flavor is the best part as it should be, the beer is sweet, with an undertone of fresh malts overpowered by citrus hops. The palate is perfect, not too heavy not too thin.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a gorgeous shade of brown, held up to light becomes a deep burgundy red. Not much head, what there is is a deep beige colour. Smell is spicy and vaguely nutty. Flavour is about the same, there is some nice spicy yeasty sort of flavours and a good bit of hop bitterness though not much flavour. There is some sugary malt in the background. Mouthfeel is not too bad, not really watery, but not really syrupy either.
