"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."

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2007
Golden hazy poor with a frothy off-white head. Aromas of apple puree, cinnamon, hints of ginger, orange zest and coriander. Creamy mouthfeel with a good balance between bitter and sweet. Medium bodied but missing a little character.

bhensonb (13622) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 13, 2007
Bottle. The aroma is phenolic. A little like the odor of a Spanish olive. The color is coppery, and the white head is vigorous. Medium bodied. Moderately carbonated. Fruit, spice and some sweetness. The finish is decent, and the aftertaste is tolerably fruity and lightly spicy. Good to drink.

Miksu (5039) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2007
Draught at the De Zwarte Kat, Gent. Deep golden color with creamy head. Fruity and phenolic aroma with hint of herbal hops. Sweet, malty and spicy flavor with vanilla, cumin and some woody spices.

minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 12, 2007
Fruity sweet aroma, tripel like. Clear golden body, thick foamy white head. Juicy peach fruitiness, moderately hopped. An approachable and easy to like Belgian blond.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Pours a reddish-gold with a small, laced white head. The aroma is largely vanilla with some slight spice notes thrown in. Taste is a nice, smooth combination of lemon and vanilla with a bubblegum-ish aftertaste. Always a go-to beer for me.

bkurtz (1018) - PERU - JUL 8, 2007
Bottle. Poured a beautiful golden with an average, quickly dissapating head. Fruit aromas with a semi-sweet malt flavor. Well balanced and smooth dinking. A great everyday Belgian beer.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2008 330 ml bottle. poured pure gold with an inch of frothy white head. nice fruity aromas with detectable malt in the nose. tastes like a belgian ale. complex and well balanced with layers of flavours. this beer improves as it warms. a nice example of a belgian ale.

robinvboyer (3966) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2007
I wonder if this beer has changed much since the buyout from inbev. a nice belgian ale. aroma is slightly fruity with nots of malt. finish is bitter, and slightly hoppy. a well made beer.

JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2012 Pours a nice, deep golden colour, with a large white head. Aroma: Fruity esters mostly with that Belgiany yeast scent (dispite being filtered and with no sediment left). Something weird and off like hand cream of some sort. Flavour: Decent, very sweet and malty upfront, followed by some sourness and funk. Medium hop presence in the finish. Some creaminess to the mouth-feel is there probably due to the rich white head. It seems to get better as it warms, with some tasty pumkin-pie-like flavours coming through. It’s not bad stuff, kind of a weird beer that seems to be stretching over a number of style barriers. Nothing to go crazy for but it’s enjoyable. EDIT: Despite the ubiquity of it, this beer is absolutely fantastic on tap in Paris. Check it out for sure, especially if you’re just having a casual meal of French onion soup or something similar.

wingman333 (333) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Bottle...a solid "tripel" style beer, estery, light, somewhat dry for his type, but satisfying. Flavors of banana, peach, and pine predominate.
