Bottle at home. Pours an amber color with a creamy tan head. Aroma of fruits, cinnamon, some cream, spices, clove and a malty base. Flavor is surprisingly bitter, with only a hint of sweetness and very spicy. Quite ok creamy texture and a bitter finish. wekker84 (2390) - etten-leur, NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2010
330 ml bottle a amber red brown colored beer with a white head aroma sweet malts spices and fruit taste sweet fruit and alcohol Lady_Bastet (113) - Burlington, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2010
Pours deep red brown with an off-white head and minimal lacing. Aroma of malt and alcohol. Clear pouring. Quite off-putting but I can’t my finger on why. It lacks distinction. It is very mediocre. Medium carbonation and light body. Flavour of alcohol and maltiness but again, nothing to write home about. I wouldn’t have it again. Brandman (2962) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2010
330 ml bottle. Amber body, beige head. Aroma has fruits, malt and some spices. Flavour has some hops and alcohol plus the same ones in aroma. House flavour is present. Don’t like it. TBone (18228) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 2, 2010

Clear deep amber color, steady creamy beige head, lace. Sticky wood, grass, berries and caramel with light alcohol in the nose. Medium-bodied. Harsh, alcoholic, caramel, gooseberries, redcurrant. Kind of more alcoholic version of Leffe Rossa.
Interesting flavor experience. Starts sweet and slightly metallic, but then goes round the mouth and warms it. Back to skating now GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2010
Bottle from a Leffe giftpack. Ruby-amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is fairly generic as far as strong Belgian ales go - notes of yeast, dried fruit, spice, all pleasant but very nondescript. Flavour is similarly enjoyable - nice candi sugar sweetness, a yeasty/spicy tang, mild boozy heat and pleasing bitterness in the finish - but ultimately, it’s not an especially memorable beer. note666 (1313) - Eindhoven, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2010
2020-02-09 330 ml bottle. bright red-amber colour. off white head. taste is bit disapointing, not as good as i hoped.... jonno (2915) - JAPAN - JAN 29, 2010
A great into for novices in to belgian beers as it forgoes the belgian spicy yeast, though is a little plainer for it. A multinational abbey it checks all the boxes without highlighting them. Sweet and smooth. Listigovers (1312) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2010
Pours reddish amber with a fluffy cream coloured head. Aroma is yeasty, fruity, and not overly strong or interesting. Great mouthfeel, full bodied, tingles the back of your tongue. Flavour is fairly rich in character, and interesting, but not my favourite.
This rating is slightly biased, I was drinking initially out of a Chimay glass and a piece of metal from the rim chipped off in my mouth giving it a horrible taste. I switched glasses and it was better, but my first impression was tainted. Regardless, Leffe Brune is a better beer for me.
