"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 ’connoisseur’ beer that is easy to drink."

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2006
On tap at Winking Lizard in Columbus Ohio - Pours a golden amber witha a foamy white head that stayed pretty well and laced some. Aroma is light honey and some spice. Flavor is honey, bannana, clove, some caramel sweetness as well. Palate is medium bodied and quite drinkable.. Somewhat dry on the finish.

jcr (2221) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAY 11, 2006
Draft. Translucent gold in color with fluffy, white head. There’s not a lot of complexity to the nose or flavor, but it is an enjoyable blond ale. Aroma of yeast with fruity citrus notes that lean toward apricot. The flavor is sweet with a light hint of clove. Pleasant mouthfeel and moderate finish.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2006
Bottled, 33cl. Clear, golden beer with a dense, white, lasting head. Candi-sweet aroma with some banana and spice. The flavor is weak, with candi-sugar sweetness, banana and hops. Too sweet on the palate. Ok finish. (060508)

I’ve been enjoying Belgian beers recently, so I wanted to try this one out. I was surprised to see it was only 6.6% abv, considering its strong taste & body. Quite an unique flavor to it, strong in yeast, as well as a honey/molasses like flavor. Pours a rich golden color, and a fair amount of carbination. Overall, a well rounded brew with quite a lot to offer.

I am not sure why I try those belgian beers. They just don’t appeal to me. Had this one at Bistro 7 1/4 in Wpg. Just something about the Belgians that I do not like.

beerlady (556) - lucerne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 1, 2006
bright withe head don’t lasts long dark orange-golden colour hoppy and malty smell,smells a little bit sweet,smells spicy too,something a little bit fruity is hidden behind. tasts hoppier than expected during smelling,but also malty and spicy,remembering me a little bit some christmas-spice blends,something fruity hidden in the taste too. lively carbonated,fizzy. hoppy and malty-sweet aftertaste,spicy. aftertaste lasts long. take enough time,to drink it,don’t drink it to fast,even if it seems easy drinkable by the first tasting,the fizzy carbonation could lead one to drinking it to fast,but some interesting flavours can only be detected with a little bit of patience ! yes,i like it ! cause i like beers who don’t show me their secrets at the first view!! and i like complicated hidden flavours!

SonOfSlam (2) - USA - APR 30, 2006 does not count
Clear gold pour, no sediment. medium-thick head, well carbonated. Medium body. Pleasant Belgian ale flavor, with a nice spicy finish. Very drinkable, probably the best beer available at my local supermarket.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 27, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2007 A decent white head snd a deep golden color. Flavor is sweet with hints of honey and a slight caramel aspect. Suggestion of bubblegum sweetness, probably from the yeast. Highly drinkable.
