"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."

Light copper color with a thick creamy head. Aroma and flavor are strongly similar to an amber with strong corriander notes classic to a Belgian.

Slightly yeasty aroma of oranges and coriander - quite fresh. The flacour is likewise. Fresh and fruity with some yeasty esters and phenols tickling your tongue. The end is medium dry with some hops and bitternes. Not that bad for an macro ale like this...

Smell is somewhat sweet and malty with a mild presence from the belgian yeast. Sweet, creamy and smooth flavor of honeyed maltiness. Not cloying or overly dry and bubbly like some belgians can be. Extremely smooth, creamy and drinkable, especially for a style I’m not generally fond of. This is definitely worth another try and I was impressed.

billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - DEC 19, 2007
bottle 11.2 oz. Golden almost clear, white head that fell rather quickly to almost nothing. Nice full Belgian aroma of yeast and spices including clove and coriander. Flavor is well into medium bodied with a bit of peppery spiciness to go along with the aroma descriptions. Not too sweet, with a well balanced, moderate bitterness. This is a decent Belgian for the price. It does seem to be just a bit abrupt and lacking refinement though. Holds it’s flavor profile up well with food.

Smells very yeasty with a strong spice aroma, cant quite place it. Pours a clear golden color with a luxurious white head with nice lacing. Taste is very robust and dark. Light caramel-like taste with a slight bitterness. Very nice.

It was one of the first Belgian beers, probably the first I tasted when I began drinking and rating beer. I hated it, just like I hated all other Belgian beers.... At my 1 year anniversary I had to try it again, and it was much better, even if it isn’t among the really nice blonds IMO. Light amber, nice head and a discrete, slightly perfumed aroma with notes of yeast. The flavour is sweet with notes of coriander, malt and fruit and a rather distinct note of citrus, and towards the finish it becomes a little bit dominating.

Bottle. Pours slightly hazy gold with a lacy white head. Aroma of spice, floral hops, caramel, fruit, nuts. Light body and active carbonation.The first thing to show up in the taste is that floral hop note. Then the sweet caramel-nutty notes show up. Dry spicy finish with a bit of grass.

I’ve had it before and I’ll have it again. I love this beer. Aroma reminds me slightly of wet cedar wood with hints of rising yeast and caramel. The beer pours a dark golden hue with a creamy white head, but hard to produce from the bottle. I had to rattle the bottle on the last fifth and then pour. The toasted bread and slightly sweat caramel flavors match up perfectly with the aroma. There is a slight warming on the tongue and throat with an acidic bite, pleasant not over-powering. The smooth taste hides the listed 6.6 abv well. Overall, Leffe is one of my favorite beers. It has a wheat beer quality that I love and is a good starter beer to setting the palate for drinking other Belgian beers.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - DEC 13, 2007
Bottled. A clear golden/orange beer with a small and disappearing white head. Quite light fruity aroma, with some spiciness and a light hop presence. The flavour is fruity and spicy with some yeast and a decent hoppiness in the finish. Medium body, lively carbonation, light alcohol presence, light to medium bitterness in the aftertaste. Perhaps too grainy, but amore than decent industrial Belgian beer.
