Second to the left: Leffe. I like that. I think it's the dubbelbruin.

We get that here at the LCBO these days but it is just called brown. It was on tap last summer in a few places but, alas, gone. I think it is about 6%. Would that make it a dubble? What is a simple brown? If you can supply some vital low country info, I was hoping at some point to write about the Belgians I am familiar with here beyond the wittes.

Leffe's from Belgium, here's their page:
Both 'blond' and 'dubbel bruin' taste good - they're a bit if luxury beer: I used to bring them to my work when there was yet another downsizing round at work.

I think we get them both here in Ontario, then. Interbrew owns Labatts so we get some exchange. Exploring the bruns of Belgium would be a very pleasant summer's occupation.

Alan - you're very kind to give us a mention, thanks.

The Leffe is Radieuse, the nicest of their beers - a rich red beer packed with lots of interesting flavours.

Nice. That is not here but perhaps at Christmas. The LCBO stocks in November and you get all sorts of good stuff like that. Orval last year. I tihnk I will be paying a visit to the Galeville Grocery in early December too for stocking of stockings.
