Leffe Brune

Now owned and brewed by InBev Belgium, Leffe beer originated from the abbey of the same name in southern Belgium, which was founded in 1152. Monasteries throughout Europe, especially in Belgium, are famous for beers that have been produced using the same recipe and locally sourced ingredients for centuries. Only recently have major corporations stepped in, distributing these fermented gems worldwide.

Leffe Brune is only the second beer, of the nine produced, to reach the American shores, joining Leffe Blonde. Brune is a terrific example of the Belgian dark ale style, offering warm aromas of bready Belgian yeast and light notes of caramel. These aromas mirror the beer’s wonderful flavors of dark sugar, banana, and toffee. Exceptionally smooth, and accented by traditional clove and coriander spices.

This beer should be a staple in everyone’s fridge, right next to the Camembert cheese that pairs so well with it.
