"Leffe Blond is a pale abbey beer, with a full, sunny, golden colour. It has a smooth and full bodied taste and a rich creamy head. Like all the Leffe beers, it is a íconnoisseurí beer that is easy to drink."

UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 Draught at La Bodega in Reims. Blonde pour. Frothy head and fruity. Good but served too cold. Somewhat disappointed. [2006.02.19: .31]

Many years have passed, but I return. This bottle at home, best before end 15/09/14. Nose is sweet and estery, lots of lemon in with lighter vanilla, banana, heavy fruity yeast overtones; Iím expecting it will be rather sweet. Pours clear, deep golden with a large soapy beige head. Taste is indeed very sweet, but not cloying, and the swell soon passes; thinnish body but not watery, a rush of great yeast character, sweet jammy and overripe fruit followed by cleansing banana-lemon esters and slightly-hot cloves. Just enough carbonation to refresh, just enough sunshine to embolden. Superb and readily available gateway beer. [2014.04.17: 3.3]

It had a nice color with a nice creamy head. A very creamy beer, with just enough carbonation. The flavor was nothing to get excited about though. Very bland.

A very nice belgian, I canít help but be somewhat critical of it as the flavor was a little flat, no frills affair. I think I noticed a little bit of a corn-type flavor in this one, where I expected something a little sweeter and in keeping with other Belgian ales. Maybe this one is more like a bitter, nice palate, and yeasty aroma.

Very smooth with a distinctive yeast taste. Had it out of the tap at a nice pub in Edinburgh. Very full creamy head.

From the bottle and from my buddy Matt who was generous enough to bring me two of these back from Chicago. The first one was downed sometime after the Superbowl!?! But this one...is all mine! Smooth and clear with a golden hue. Nice white head and good lacing. Apples, wood and citrus yeast in the nose. Zesty and lively yet somewhat dulled, but not in a bad way! To elaborate...zesty from the citrus and carbonation, yet the banana flavor somewhat rounds out the flavor. A lot of Belgian notes, but a slighty German Hefeweizen note. Alcohol is there, and yet it is easy to drink. Iíve heard a lot about Leffe, but this is the first that I have rated. What can I say? Smooth and flavorful.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2006 Yum! Pours amber with a decent head. Smells fruity and spicy. Flavour is much like the aroma with a nice bitter finish.
