COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg and bottle: Filtered.

"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."

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 13, 2006
Bottle Trappist cool temperature, light aromas of malts, light in note bready, a bit of citrus. Nice golden color with a white head. Fruity and sweet light malts dominate, very little hop presence finishes, a bit bitter. Pretty good taste, a great session beer. Fairly light mouthfeel but not too watery. Overall not too bad and easily drinkable.

Pleasantly suprised. This is a very easy beer to drink. I would have to agree with another’s comment - good starter beer.

So this really lacks complexity, but it is really pleasant to drink, and can probably be enjoyed by just about anyone. Lots of sweet candied sugar flavors with banana notes in the aroma. medium palate. good for drinking anytime

tom360 (1) - toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2006 does not count
dark rich gold. actually is very easy to drink, due to sweetness and fruitiness.

rdelljh (155) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2006
Pours a golden body with a very fluffy white head. A slight smokey aroma that gives way to an extremely well hidden fruity bouquet of aromas. Taste is similar- with nice wheat, bananas and apples. Full bodied, very smooth and pleasant.

Bottle from Santa. Clear, medium golden colored with a nice and retentive white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is yeasty and slightly sweet. Light bodied with lifting carbonation. Moderately sweet in taste, light peppery/yeasty presence. Light fruits. Decent, not really inspiring a lot of awe however.

Slight bit of fruit, and a moderate alcohol flavor and aroma. The alcohol hard about halfway through the sip.

PorterPounder (6042) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2006
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 11.2 oz bottle. Always thought I had rated this until I did a sort on the highest number of ratings and this popped up as unrated - good enough reason to make a trip to the beer store! Anyways - medium golden pour, light, tight white head, faint lacing. Fresh aroma of bubble gum and nectarines. Same frutiness spills over to the flavor with some candied sugar sweetness, hints of bubble gum and and some banana flavoring (the artificial variety). Mouthfeel is thick and sticky and a highlight of this one. Very drinkable and approachable Belgian Ale - good starter beer for those just delving into beer geekness.

Bottle. Golden with a red glow and a big white head. Fruit, yeast and alcohol in aroma. Sweet flavour with fruit and some spices.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 2, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2007 Bottle, dark golden colour with a large frothy white head. Sweet malty aroma with touches of yeast. Quite a sweet palate again, but with a good peppery spiciness. Pretty good and I find much better from the bottle than on draught.
