On tap at The Map Room. Pours a dark brown with amber hues and a solid off-white head. Lots of dark fruits and spices but nothing that makes this one remarkable.

Hugh (208) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - JUL 9, 2006
Looks like a dubbel, but lacks aroma, flavour, character, any of the qualities I expected from this style. Of course - itís a factory beer made with corn, no secondary fermentation, with all the money saved pumped into packaging and advertising. Wonderful bottle & label imagery, wonderful glass, wonderful domination of all the cafes in my home town, making sure they exclude any other beers which could shame it by comparison. Coloured sugar water for the unquestioning masses.

wanderingman (54) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2006
Not quite as viually stunning as its cousin Leffe Blond, but still quite nice. poured a nice deep brown with a thick white head. Aroma of some roasted nuts and carmels. Taste has a hint of sweetness with carmels and toffee, but a hit of hops throughout it. A very smooth drinking beer and great when you donít want the heavy sweetness of the Blond, but you arenít looking for something too bitter.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - JUN 25, 2006
Pours a deep brown, white bubbly head, dies slowly, some lace. Malty, slightly sweet, some alcohol. Not too heavy, malt carries through, alcohol more evident in the taste. Finish is long, quite bitter.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2006
(05.20.06) On tap at Firkinís, Libertyville, IL. Poured clear dark brown with giant white head. No discernable carbonation. Sweet malt aroma. Medium bodied ale with moderate malt sweetness and fruity (plum?), licorice, and toffee flavors. Finishes with light malt fade. No discernable hop presence. A good, drinkable, malty beer.

larsga (7316) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2006
Beige big lasting head. Deep dark red body. Vague sweet roasted caramel aroma. Sweet caramel taste with some roasted almonds. Chocolate notes. Smooth, faintly chewy mouthfeel. Aftertaste is bitter caramel. Almond bitterness lingers. Not the most complex brune, but nice. (0.33l bottle.)

On tap at Carlsens "skvatter" (Odense): brown abbey ale with fine white head. Creamy texture- filling mouthfull. Nutty and malty aroma. Medium carbonated. Overall pleasant and better than the "blonde" if it is comparable!
