"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."

ashbeero (51) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2005
Pale golden yellow, hazy with an extremely long lasting white head. Fairly weak aroma with yeasty notes and some slight spiciness and fruit. Sweet and malty, well balanced with a nice hop bite and medium bitterness. Finishes long and very sweet, but not too sweet. A very good lighter Belgian ale.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
White creamy head on a blonde body. Nice taste, tasty in fact, malt with hints of fruits, just bitter enough. Dry finish. Excellent brew for the Summer.

JoshuaB (474) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2005
Pours a warm blond, I guess that is where the name comes from. Nice white creamy head that remains till the end. Oh so tasty. A light crisp yeasty malt flavor with some fruit, but not sweet. Very good finish. I enjoy this brew.

Malty, light to medium sweet aroma, some fruitiness. Golden color. Fresh malty, fruity flavor. Light sticky. LIght dry bitter finish. Very pleasant but a hint to sweet for me.

Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Blond in colour. No yeast. Aroma of spice and candy sugar, little bit of malt. Medium mouthfeel. Bit too bland, slightly sweet. Did I mention its bland? No? Its bland.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours a pale hazy gold with a thin lacy ivory head. Smells of citrus (grapefruit?) and fruity yeast. Lightly spicy aromas, like black pepper. Your first impression of the taste is sweet, sweet, sweet. And not malty sweet, like sugary sweet. I don’t know if they use lots of cane sugar in the brewing process but whatever it is, it is overdone. For the first time in any of my reviews I will use the adjective "cloying" to describe it. Once the wave of sweetness passes you get some grapefruity citrus and the peppery spice, some rounded alcohol flavors and hints of honey. This is a bold tasting beer, it definitely asserts itself on your palette and is sticky in the finish. Problem is it’s way too sweet and not nearly complex enough to pull it off. I seem to remember having better impressions of the bruin in the past but I’ll take a miss on the blonde next time.

Precept53 (147) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - MAY 10, 2005
On tap…Dark golden yellow color, sweet malty flavor, very smooth crisp taste and extremely drinkable. Excellent mouth feel… Thick head remains thought the drink, medium lacing… hoppy sweet fruit aroma. Overall an excellent beer.

lululegrand (94) - gent, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2005
Warm golden blond beer with fluffy off white head. Soft malty aroma, touch of flowers and sweet cakes. taste is smooth, has some mild malty sweetness and a strange bittery accent. Also some toches of abrcoos.
