"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 íconnoisseurí beer that is easy to drink."

Beautiful golden color and creamy head. Smooth to drink with floral bouquet. Thoroughly enjoyable given itís ubiquity and price.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with a nice big fluffy creamy head that laces all the way to the end of the quaff. Nose is actually a little odd. Not nearly as nice as the Saxo brew that I just enjoyed, but I hope the flavor comes close to that one.... Nope, it doesnít, but itís not terrible. Sweetness and a bit of bubble gum and spice come through but the palate is a little thin and the carb a little too large... the bubbles arenít champagne like,as a good Belgian always has. Interesting flavor, although I think it is rushed a bit. Still OK though, and better than a lot of beers out there.

Transparent golden with decent white head. Aroma is astringent cleaner with some yeasty bread and residuel sugars mixed in. Flavor very muddled. Residuel sugar, harsh dusty malt and alcohol for a finish. Mouthfeel rather thin. Below average overall.

Full of flavour, syrupy palate, rich amber colour, a very enjoyable beer. Money well spent!

Pale color with a thick white head, minimal lacing. Yeasty aroma of bananas. Sour palate, that is a bit tart. As it warms, has a nice grainy body. Similar to a hefeweizen in style, with more hops and diversity. I liked it.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2007 bottle: Amazing beer which always reminds me of xmas! Great example of Belgian Ale. Also a great example of a stronger beer (6.5%) that isnít overwhelmed by alcohol taste (e.g. Sinha Stout). Pours sunny yellow with nice puffy white head. Tastes exactly like it smells: sweet yet acidic, fruity & yeasty. You can really taste fruit in here llike appricot or bananas, hard to tell. Here is a beer which has big, bold flavours but still is smooth (unlike Mill Streetís Coffe Porter). I always get the sense that if this beer had 1 more bit of flavour it would all fall to pieces & go to hell, but this hangs together.

Pours a deep golden color with a half-inch fluffy white head. Aroma is yeasty, breadlike with some slightly sour malty notes. Flavor is sweet, grainy with a touch of old, dark fruitiness. Definite alcohol presence throughout ending in a warm lightly dry finish. Full, slightly syrupy mouthfeel with light carbonation and astringency. Great lacing. Overall, a great abbey ale.

sfontain (845) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 24, 2006
Golden color with lots of lively bubbles; thick, white, creamy head that lessens but remains all the way through the beer; significant lacing. A fairly deep aroma of yeast, bread, hay, and caramel. Flavor is subtler, with yeast, bread, and some bitterness; alcohol is quite apparent unless you let the beer sit in the glass for some time before drinking; finish is slightly hoppy and bitter and will also have some alcohol astringency if drank immediately after opening. Medium body; creamy; faily heavy carbonation. A pleasant surprise, this beer is refreshing but not a lawnmower beer, but itís somehow missing something to make it a great beer.

Not very keen on this, it is quite dry in taste. Its colour is not refreshing as the brown one. Lacks the fruits and spices taste present in the brown..
