"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."

obguthr (5577) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Strawberry and banana bouquet, not terribly strong. Clear yellow, very thick head. Salty and grainy initially with some barley notes, sweet citrus at midpalate. Decent hop finish. Nice transitions. Speaking as someone not fond of the belgian styles, this is a reasonably good gateway to Belgiian beers. It’s cheap and isn’t overpowering. This should be everyone’s first Belgian.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Pours clear, yellow, with a huge, fine head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Flavor is fruity with qualities of banana, citrus, and apple. Very sweet. Mouth feel is moderate.

Drake (11565) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Bottle. Pours orangish-gold with a fairly long-lasting head. Aroma is fruity, with wheat and banana coming through. Tasted a bit off. Standard blonde ale taste, with a sweet aftertaste (and beforetaste) that is not pleasant. Otherwise, a fairly easily drinkable beer.

dkazuk (248) - winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 3, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2007 330ml bottle. Pours a clear orange-amber with a fair sized white head. Aroma and taste of bubblegum and herbal hops. Biting carbonation and lasting sweet aftertaste. I’m not a fan of Belgian ales and this one is no exception for me.

swoopjones (7021) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Draft all over Europe. Decent belgian blonde. Smooth, nice mouthfeel. easy drinking Belgian session beer. Not going to raise any eyebrows but a good beer to get your friends away from Macros

emerica56 (600) - Bristol, Rhode Island, USA - SEP 28, 2007
This beer starts foaming as soon as you crack it open even before you put it into a glass.Once you pour it out there is a massive head that stays for a while with a golden clear color and nice laceing. There is not much of a smell just hops and weat. As you drink it the flavor is very creamy and smooth with mild hints of lemon and hops. The palate is very frothy and creamy which makes this beer very enjoyable to drink.

goldbrew (99) - USA - SEP 26, 2007
Ginormous soapy bubble bath head that remains for 5 minutes. Rich gold color. Aroma is not striking at all - lemon heavy with a very mild citrus dishwashing detergent scent. But an eminently drinkable beer with a medium body mouthfeel. Awe-inspiring, no. Tastes like it doesn’t want to take any chances and be a wallflower. Nothing offensive but nothing inspiring.

Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - SEP 25, 2007
Bottle. Brilliant golden color, huge billowy h\white head provides alots of lace. Very fruity aroma with sour, bready notes and hints of raspberry and peach. Flavor is from prominent yeast strain, pilsener malt, toast, maybe some candi sugar. Noble hops are subtle. Some spice notes in background. Pretty dry. Very good.

sm89walt (1937) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 24, 2007
Bottle. Golden with a thick, frothy white head that leaves a nice lacing on the glass. There’s plenty of carbonation visible. It’s aroma is marginally malty with banana overtones. It is smooth on the palate and has an apple backdrop beneath a good malt component and there are hints of alcohol. The finish is pleasantly bitter without lasting too long. Crisp and refreshing.

Gpnterojd (179) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2007 Pours deep gold. The aroma is frothing with banana and some yeast. Full bodied. Sweet, caramel and banana ride alongside an alcohol warmth. Dry hops in the aftertaste. Good beer -- but I prefer the brune.
