3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly thin in flavor and palate. overall makes an average Belgian session ale. The robust head will lead you to think the flavor follows -- which falls short.

Draft sampled. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of caramel, fruits, brown sugar, and some spices. Flavor is well balanced an rich with sweet malts, caramel, dark fruits and raisins with a bitter finish

Bottle. Very sweet nose, lots of dark fruit. Deep brown with a light head. Flavor is complex and enjoyable, chocolate and grains, raisins, plum, fig. Slightly lacking in body but nice overall.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
