"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."

Pours a pretty golden color with tiny columns of rising bubbles. Thick and foamy white head with fair retention. Patches of lacing on the glass. The aroma is on the hoppy side and has a nice spiced undertone as well. Medium-bodied and spicy with hops and yeast flavors. The flavor profile is not as complex as many Belgians but it is still pretty tasty. The finish is spicy and fruity and lingers a bit. Above average overall.

Clear golden body with a big white head. Smells of yeast, straw, and a little malt. Taste is more of the same with an emphasis on the straw. Bready notes come out with the yeast flavors. Barely noticable spices in the back which were accompanied by sour notes as the beer warmed. Very easy to drink, and pretty good for a blonde but not a beer that I will ever desire.

11.2 bottle. Pours nice golden color with huge white head. Nice aroma of malt + spice, some hops, bready yeast. Great Blonde beer, and certainly a worthy session beer. Awesome, Iíll have another, and another......

The beer tastes off. I detect notes of diffrent fruits but it really ruins the beer. Has a soapy aftertaste. Not a fan.

I was pleased to try another Belguim. Itís suprisingly good because itís pretty common-thatís not necessarily a bad thing though. The aroma is yeasty and spicy. I like itís dark amber colour. Itís now quite common in my house. Itís pretty good but could be better.

Leffe blond is THE Belgian session beer. Excellent appearance in its tulip chalice, widely available on draught in Europe itís remarkably good for sucha popular beer.

TerryR (384) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Golden body with a sustained, large white head. Aroma of spice, yeast and malt. Flavor is malty and smooth, followed by a long spicy finish. Somewhat subdued by Belgian standards, but very tastey and easy drinking.

marcus (7669) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 7, 2007
This yellow-colored ale poured with a large, long-lasting fluffy head. The flavor is malty and spicy, with a very carbonated mouthfeel. Drinkable, but not remarkable.

I thought this beer was very good...it tasted a bit like a tripel, but was extremely drinkable. It was spicy and light, but very good. Color is a dark amber with an abundant head. Aroma is spices and light alcohol esters. Taste is spicy (clove and coriander?) and a big boldness reminiscent of a Belgian tripel, and this beer had the fairly big mouthfeel of a tripel. Yet, this beer was very drinkable.

Leffe is delicious. Itís not as good as Chimay, but itís got a lot of flavor and itís worth savoring from an open wine glass or a Belgiam Ale glass, if you have one.
