COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg and bottle: Filtered.

"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."

Quevillon (2531) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2006 Une bonne belge avec un goût fort mais respectable, légèrement épicé et chaleureuse. Une bonne belge pour ceux qui veut connaitre ce style.

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2006
330 ml Bottle, 6.6% a/v Looks like a nice honey color with a lingering white head. Odours hint at honey as well as an almost grasslike scent. Doesnt taste like what it looks like it should. Very well proportioned flavours, with a hint at its alcohol content. Mild aftertaste. All in all not a bad beer. Not great, but not bad.

thornecb (4456) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 11, 2006
Pours a light copper color into Leffe glass. Medium sized head. Malty nose with hint of pine. Lively palate and malty finish.

Cornfield (5504) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2006
Pouring a rich, golden body with a frothy white head, this has a fruity, light malt nose. The flavor is a nice balance between the malt and a sharp, earthy bitterness. Finishing on a bitter, citrus-like note, this is a refreshing ale.

mountainforest (130) - Mississippi, USA - JAN 5, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2007 Not as sophisticated as its claims to have been around since 1240 age. More bubbly than the average blond. A strong bitter taste, though tamed by sweetness. Has more weight and consistency than one would expect.

thewolf (11191) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2006
A great head of completely white, with a nicely balanced taste between bitterness and sweetness.

DrnkMcDermott (2810) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2006 Bottled. Pours out a clean blond color, underneath a head of whipped egg white. Smell gives initial impression of Belgian sugar, but then a good "beery" smell comes in. Taste is the usual sugary Belgian at first, then the slightly sharp European hop note becomes noticeable. Goes down nicely, if a little gassy. Still tends nicely toward the abbey ale style than some Jever clone.

jdjuice (330) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - DEC 30, 2005
A nicely balanced beer. Seems like a mix between a traditional belgian ale and a pilsner, the hoppiness seems to resemble the pilsner. Pours gold with rocky, soild head. Spicy and citrusy, pleasantly light, but maybe lacking slightly in flavor complementation. Quite nice.
