Aurelius (4651) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2007
Dark, clear ruby-brown. Sweet, sugar and candy aroma. Very sweet, woody, mouldering undertones. Overall like beer mixed with cough syrup without all the cherries. Cidery notes in the finish. Unentertaining.

Gpnterojd (179) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2007
Pours into a huge, dense, whipped head. Dark reddish brown. Slightly yeasty aroma, with banana and very faint apple. Rich, sweet, caramel apple taste with almost a syrupy body. Surprising taste, considering the aroma. Carmelized fructose. Delightful.

I prefer this one to the Blonde. It has the better darker taste (it is a Brune, of course) and is closer to the nice Belgian brown style that Americans, for whatever reason, refuse to do.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2007
On draught at Barca in Seattle. Aroma is fruity, slightly plasticy phenols forward followed by some clovey notes and very light malt character. No hop aroma. Appearance is medium brown with a moderate off-white head. Flavor is dark fruity malt forward followed by a simple malt sweetness and low bittering. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carb texture and very slight graininess. Overall, a great approachable Belgian that might appeal to almost anyone.

sm89walt (1816) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 10, 2007
33cl bottle. Leffe Brune is a brown beer with a frothy and enduring beige head that leaves a nice lacing. The aroma is very fruity - bananas - with a touch of caramel. The flavour is similarly sweet and light bodied with notes of liquorice. Clean but sugary finish. Interesting for my first Abbey Dubbel but I wasn’t especially keen on it.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2007 La migliore delle Leffe che ho assaggiato, con media complessità sia nell’aroma che nel sapore (dati, per una birra commerciale, quasi sorprendenti); corpo neanche troppo acquoso. Buona.______________ENGLISH TEXT HERE______________Best Leffe I tasted, with medium complexity in aroma and flavor (astonishing for such a mainstream brew); body not too watery. Nice.

hapjydeuce (975) - Carlsbad, California, USA - SEP 2, 2007
From bottle...had this one at a small pub in north Vietnam in my travels. Hazy brown with a medium sized head, laces away after a few minutes. Very sweet flavor with cinnamon and caramel background. I could drink lots of this stuff if the price was domestic. A pretty straightforward brew.

heavy (2270) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 31, 2007
0,33 l bottle. Dark brown colored with big ocher head. Aroma of sweet malt with caramel. Flavor really sweet, maybe bit too much for my taste, some caramel mixed with yeast. Not much carbonation, creamy texture and, unfortunately, sweet but short finish. Very good beer but there are many better.

draft - Pours brown with a substantial head and a yeasty, malty aroma. The flavor is sweet and malty with yeast and a little fruit in the background. Medium bodied and lively, it’s not complicated, but it’s a good quaff.
