Dark amber in colour with a of-white head. Aroma from plum and yeast. Sweet taste! Some plum here as well. Maybe this beer is to sweet actually.

Looks great, firm head,good lacework. Rich malty aroma, not as full bodied as I expected but big complex malty flavours. Good tasty beer, prefer the blonde tho!

Inviting dark reddish-brown with excellent cream-coloured head. More of a "drinking" beer than the denser Vieille Cuvee - rich malty flavour and without any strange aftertaste. Very enjoyable. Surprised my final score was not higher - let down by low score for its aroma which was not unpleasant but was unremarkable (begs the question should aroma carry such weight when beer is for drinking not sniffing?).

MillStreetMan (152) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2005
The Brun is the slightly tastier, more mature older brother to Leffe’s blonde. Not surprisingly, due to its greater depth and complexity, it is harder to come by than the Blonde. I am a great fan of Abbey Dubbels, so I’m a bit biased, I suppose. It has many of the same characteristics of the blonde, especially the rich, sweet, almost chewy quality, but imbued with a greater degree of maltiness and spice. Fantastic,

Stew41 (1736) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2004
Cloudy dark tan with a rhubarb tinge. ’House’ nose; spice, cinamon, with excellent lift. Sweetish and strongly builf in the mouth, Quite thick (not a session beer) with more spice and cloves. Finishes long - has good length. Seems to hit a little harder than its 6.5%. Good stuff.

NosirIwont (1964) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2004
Bottle. Nice red/brown colour with a greyish-brown head. Sharp fruity aroma with a touch of yeast. Powerful, winelike flavour. Wellbalanced. Sweetish. Faint touch of yeast. Has a distinct metallic/iron flavour, which makes it taste like blood. - I find it kinda disturbing. Otherwise a fine beer.

Memorable dark brown colour. Full and smooth, tart taste. Good head, very tasty and pleasant to drink.
