"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."

I grew up in Belgium, so I have been drinking Belgian beers for a long time...this is a good beer that hits all the right spots...tasty but not to heavy so you can tip a few without all the bloating and burping...it taste good, thats what matters...I love all the guys who make up stuff to sound like they know what they are talking about...it is what it is... a good beer....

Some of the strangest reviews can be found for this particular beer. Either one guy is going on and on about the biology of what can called a "blond" or another guy is going on and on about trappist monks. Anyway, I had this on tap at Naja’s Place. I thought it was a very nice little beer. First taste reminded me of a nice marriage between a triple and a hefeweiss. A perfect summer beer. Surprised to see some of the poor reviews.

[Bottled] Clear golden, airy head. Fruity toffee aroma. Sweet and medium bodied with fairly clean mouthfeel. Caramel and almond dominates. Slightly metallic finish with a dash of grassy bitterness. Perhaps not very complex, and certainly lacking a bit in malt character, but still a pretty good beer.

what makes this beer a blond? This is a well-marketed soft lager with some extra finish. The best products of Leffe lately are their glasses...

Beautiful looks, aroma and taste, this goes down very well... still, even though there’s no flaws, this is not exceptional for the style (not that that really says anything). But again, this is very good beer.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2006 What a perfect summer ale. Great tinge of hops and fluffy carbonation along with a spicy fruitiness that tantalizes the tongue. Refreshing and complex. Beer snobs will scorn it because it is made by Interbrew but it is still good.

Poured to a pale golden color, with foamy white head that lasted the entire bottle, with high carbonation and excellent lacing. Aroma was very hoppy and spicy, mostly clove. Flavor was a continuation of the hops and clove, with some hint of other spices, and a trickle of malty sweetness. Aroma and flavor were consistent as the beer warmed, and the finsih was very good and smooth. I really enjoyed this blonde.

Nobody can honestly claim trappist or wheat beers taste nice because they don’t. Granted - they’re better than commercial lager, but their real appeal is that they conjure images of monks brewing non-commercial beer using wild yeast. Cunningly, this appeals to both ratebeerians and young, adventurous drinkers alike. A marketers dream, but a total con. Simply put, this is Buckfast tonic wine for London yahoos.

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 4, 2006
Pours a clear orange/amber with a good amount of foamy head to it, though it disappeared very quickly, leaving behind a very thin layer on the surface. Aromas of malt, citrus, grass, cloves, general non-descript belgian-type spiciness. This isn’t the ultimate Belgian Ale by any means, but it’s a great "utilitarian", dare I say "session" sort of beer for me.
