2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Beer 01 Summer 2006 trip in Europe. Drank on 6/30/06 bottle purchased at corner store in Paris France. This is a low level poor belgian ale produced by one of belgium’s factories inbev. It tastes ok, but is severly lacking otherwise.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. At first I was pretty taken back by the aroma (better than the taste even). But as for the taste itself, its pretty good, a little strong but it’s pretty smooth, just as the label indicates. Nice golden color as well. Damn, this is a pretty good beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Best before 06-2007. Pours a rocky white head that lasts. Clear deep gold color, geyser like rush of carbonation from center of snifter - perfect visual presentation. Rich fruity nose - pears-backed by light caramel malt complexity. Malty sweet flavour with hint of earthiness from Euro hops and the special yeast. Very gentle presentation for a big beer. Clean finish, crisp and yet soft. Imminently drinkable, wonderful in fact. A consistently excellent beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle: pours bright golden with a thick white head. Aromas are malt and a little yeasty. The flavors come through as very light and drinkable, medium bodied malty belgian spiced, and citrusy. It tasted more like a belgian as it warmed up. I’m surprised by the alcohol content but this would definitely make a good session beer.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2007 Bottle. The aroma has a littel hint of vanilla but that go´s good with the color, and the yeast is ther too.
And like they say them selfs "easy to drink."

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, golden orange color, hazy with a white head. Bright spicy carbonation and a light body with a drinkable flavor and wonderful aroma. Minimal hop intrusion on the yeasty goodness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2007 8/05/2006: Deep gold, almost orange in color. Clear, well carbonated, with an nearly white head. Aroma is slightly spicy, some malt, and maybe a touch of yeastiness. Flavor is slightly sweet and spicy, some undertones of citrus lingering. Beer is fairly light on the palate. Over all a good beer, but nothing overly rememberable for me as it seemed pretty typical of the style. 11.2 oz bottle, $3.50 at Winking Lizard Tavern (Crosswoods). Rating: 6 3 6 3 12 = 3.
2/07/2007: Leffe Blond was the beer of the month at Winking Lizard Tavern (Crosswoods) for February 2007, so I had one on draught and got the Leffe goblet/glass with it to keep... Clear, light gold color with a small, bubbly white head. Delicate aromas of lemon and spice. The flavor is lightly malty and has some lemon citrus and spice as well. Moderately sweet with a light palate. Generously carbontated, but not over-carbonated or fizzy. The draught version is very refreshing, easy to drink, and better than the bottled version. Updated rating: 6 3 7 3 13= 3.2.
