"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."

Bottle... Light orange with a white head. Sweet, chalky aroma. Intensely sweet with banana and coriander flavors, alcohol comes in and is balanced by hops. Creamy finish with a clove aftertaste.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - OCT 13, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2010 Pours golden with copius head. Lots of carbonation. Lots of doughy yeast character with hints of banana, clove, sweet nectar fruits, and spice. The Flavor is much the same with major bready yeast notes that culminate in spicy fruitiness. The palate is lively in its effervescence with a supple pillowy mouthfeel and a semi dry finish.

Bobsy (194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2007
Bottle from the LCBO. Bright golden pour with a frothy white head. Dispays good carbonation. Aroma has a modicum of spice in it along with malt. Taste is pretty malty with a honey sweetness coming through. Finish is pleasant and also full of malt. Not bad.

ilovedarkbeer (2699) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2007
Overall pretty good. Tastes very belgian in a sense that it has a bit of a tripel taste to it. Pours a golden yellow color with a thin fizzy head that dissapates quickly. Tastes somewhat sour and bitter with notes of grass and caramel. Ok just a little watery.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2007
On tap, from old notes. Light orange color with aromas of honey and malt with just a note of wet cardboard. Flavor is fairly sweet with more honey notes and more wet cardboard, little hint of bitterness in the finish.

FatPhil (13266) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 10, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2014 330ml bottle. (6:3:8:4:15=3.6)
Light orange, thick fluffy head. Dusty and yeasty theme to an otherwise sweet malty aroma. Very mellow malty taste with subtle back-of-the-mouth hops, and with a fairly long but gently malty finish. Alcohol is nicely subdued. Nothing’s exceptional, but I really can’t find any fault with this at all.
Rerate: Tap (Drink Baar, Tallinn)
Nope, can’t fault the taste, even though I want to hate InBev, this is still very tasty and extremely drinkable
Rerate: 330ml bottle (Ristiisa, Tartu) (6:4:7:4:13=3.4)
Again, fairly pleasant dullish belgian blond aroma, but the taste again is good, and it’s again highly drinkable. Textbook, almost cookie-cutter belgian blond. They’ve taken it, and filed off all the sharp corners, which alas also means all of the real character too. Soft sweet malts, gentle perfumey hops. Dang, I can’t ever dislike this, I’m sure.

TallGuy (17) - Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Glass: Duvel Tulip. Six pack bottles purchased from Aberdeen Proving Grounds’ Class Six.. (Aberdeen, MD, USA) Smells sweet and slightly bitter. Gold color with nice/smooth head. Medium Sweet and Sour flavor. Lively palate.

adriancscott (16) - London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2007
Bottle: Trappist Glass. It has a nice aroma with yeast and a hint of fruit. The head is great and it lingers which is nice to savour with great laceing on the glass, but sometimes the head lingers too long and can be thick to drink through. The taste is not the best for an abbey beer. It has a bitter/sweet aftertaste, with a very corbonous texture. Still a nice beer from Belgium.

blklab2007 (2118) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 7, 2007
bottle poured in a tulip glass, orange blond in color with a fluffy head on the beer. smell is real yeasty, sweet fruit, and some grassy wheat notes. taste is heavy on the yeasts, has some creamy malts, somewhat rich, and finishes smooth. good beer but just not a fan of heavy yeast beers like this one.
