"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."

On tap at Drift, Moseley, Birmingham. Finally rated this paradigm-shifting (in Britian anyway) Belgian perennial. Better than I remember: light, fizzy, with honey and lemon tones. Sweet, perhaps a little too sweet, but crisp and quite drinkable for the strength. A good fallback option.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2005 Leffe blond is probably the most representative belgian beer around. A very interesting honey flavor.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2011 One bottle from BOTW. I wonder if I got a somewhat bad bottle even though the ’good if used by date’ was still a year from now. It did have a large creamy head, and full bodied taste. I did not enjoy the hop bitterness at the ending. Bob gave me one of these in this year’s var. B-day 6 pk. I do not like this any better than before.

Keeper (252) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 27, 2005
Blond beer of abbey, a lot structured for being one blond. Clear color and round taste. Birra bionda di abbazia, molto strutturata per essere una bionda. Colore chiaro e gusto rotondo.

shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2005
A good example of what celibacy can accomplish, the monks of the Abbaye de Abdij have managed to combine a pleasantly robust yeasty beer with nicely fruity flavors to deliver a beverage worthy of the Trappist tradition.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2005
Poured clear golden honey colour with a fluffy white head. Laced quite well. The initial aroma is heavily yeasty, with some grass, bubble gum and peppery alcohol notes. The flavour is slightly sweet with good finishing bitterness. The palate is of medium robustness, and a bit metallic. This slides down very easily indeed.

Sten (617) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2005
Golden colour with a fast diminishing head. A yeasty aroma with a fruity taste with a yeasty undertone. A nice beer but I prefer the brune one. (Bottle 33cl)

kfarrnd (113) - Oldsmar, Florida, USA - AUG 24, 2005
Bottle -- Honey colored with a thick white head. Aroma has slight touch of hops and a bit of fruit. Palate is clean and refreshing. Sweet, light fruit and honey in the flavor, with some malt tones on the finish. Very nice ale.

Nice gold color with thick head. Flavor is malty and clean. Hop bitterness is adequate. Had this in France on tap. Very refreshing. A great ale.

Excellent taste to a beer that packs a mighty wallop. It’s a sweeter beer, crisp and easy-drinking.
