COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg and bottle: Filtered.
Uses Vieux Temps yeast.
"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."

daniel0017 (404) - Yukon, CANADA - OCT 11, 2006
Fruity nose (ripe macintosh and pear) with thick lasting bubbly white head of two fingers width and dark amber effervescent body. Sweet, complex taste of harvest fruit, wheat, malt and barley. Rich, velvety feel in the mouth with a sweet non-threatening aftertaste. Not a favorite, but definitely worthy in style and craftsmenship.

flemmingwillum (1084) - Nysted, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2012 Re-rating November 2012: Golden beer with minor head. Aroma is rather weird with ketchup, yeast, a bit coffee and typical blonde malts. Flavours are yeast, wood, malts and some sweetness. Medium thickness and fresh carbonation.

Trooper11 (468) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2006
Huuuge foamy white head atop this golden brew. Aroma of pears with notes of pepper. Very astringent, bitter, peppery flavor. Very spicy aftertaste, reminds my of Autum. Warming feel slowly radiates.

almopina (87) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 10, 2006
Clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is spicy with hints of yeast and malt. Medium to full bodied ale. Very easy to drink. Tastes sweet yeast, banana, and has a very nice spicy finish. Nice on the tongue.

ChazMania (658) - Pasadena, California, USA - OCT 9, 2006
Bottled. Aroma of bananna and a bit of flowers. Mildly sweet flavor and the yeast is noticeable. Easy to drink, even my wife likes it! She doesn’t like my nornal hop intense beer. I need to find some Leffe Brune as I’m told its great.

YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - OCT 9, 2006
Medium bodied, sweet, too sweet for me, ripe fruits, some yeastiness and wheat like notes and also some spicyness, an ok beer.

zach8270 (3802) - Henrietta, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2006
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Clear gold in color with a thin white head. Aroma is spicy and slightly sweet with hints of yeast and some malt. Flavor is dry and yeasty with some grainyness in the middle and a sweet and spicy finish. Almost wheat-like at the end with the coriander, yeast, and other spices. Very easy to drink though.

Stefano (1893) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2006
Clear light copper body. The aroma is sweet, yeasty, and slightly spicy. The flavor is fruity and yeasty, with a bit of alcohol present. It’s smooth, but stays nicely on the tongue.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2006
On tap. Pours a translucent golden yellow with a finger of white, soapy head. Aromas of sweet pears, muscat grapes, sugar, bubblegum, and other yeasty spice. A little bit on the sweet side, but also contains a distinct grainy, herbal character. Light bodied, sugary mouthfeel with a mild, tongue warming carbonation. The malt dimensions have a light, grainy quality, and are supplemented by some notes of hay and herbal spice. Very yeasty, but the malt background doesn’t stand up to the yeasty side strongly enough.
