"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."

This pours a clear straw colored beer, with a thin head. The smell is a hint of sweetness. It has a hint of sweetness, and a hint of classic Belgium style. This beer is almost all hints however, with something lacking in it. Not a bad one to introduce people to, and not a bad one to have on hand, but overall, just a hint above average.

Had on tap and in bottle many times. I like this better than Chimay, but does not come close to rivaling Kwak or Saxo. Has a mild fruit and med. hoppy flavor.

On tap at the Winking Lizard in Columbus. Served in the proper glass that I got to take home. YAY! Nice golden color, good head, smelled sweet and citrusy. Very easy to drink, some fruit, honey, apples perhaps. Very drinkable! I liked it a lot!

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2008 Draft in Leffe glass - Cambridge UK. Nice bubblegum, fruit aroma balanced with exactly the right spices and hops. Thank God I found this beer on tap amidst the wasteland of bland industrial beer (Green King, etc) pub outlets found in this part of England.

From a slender 11.2 capped bottle with a blurb and best before date on the back label, 09.02.08. Poured a clear reddish orangey golden with a foamy white head that settled into a thin creamy, sudsy lacing, minimal amount of laced sticking. Aromas of bubble gum, yellow pears, a light sweet grainy maltiness and herbal hops. Good carbonation and a crisp, dryish, smooth medium bodied mouthfeel. Tastes of dry, tart fruitiness that meshes with the sweet honey, grainy malts, the alcohol has a stale, sterile flavor, softly warming in the palate, bready yeast, medicinal herbal hops with a biting bitterness towards the end, and a dry malty, herbal finish. Well, I’ve seen this on the shelves of liquor stores for years and I’ve finally tried, for me, it was a slightly above average Belgian pale ale, passable drinkability, but I won’t be returning to this anytime soon.

bmackenzie (40) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 27, 2007
sweet sugar, hint of cinnamon and nutmeg
slight alcohol aroma coming thru
wheat malt aroma, kind of caramlly also.
only fruit i can detect is a slight apricot/peach aroma but faint. It’s the sweetness that reminds me on tinned apricots.
I would love to call it floral but would love all flowers to smell like this!
high carb, clean malty acidic, lowish bitterness

Bottle -- Pours a crystal clear golden colour with a gorgeous head that soon dies off. The aroma is fantastic: velvety, floral, hoppy and, I think, more enjoyable than the flavour. It also has a wonderfully velvety mouthfeel and a nice round body. There’s definitely some fruity apple flavours in the taste with a bit of spice as well, but it’s a bit sweet for me. Nevertheless a very enjoyable, very interesting beer.

Bottle. Clear golden colour with a nice white head. Aroma and flavour of fruit, yeast, spice malt and hops.
