COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

"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 íconnoisseurí beer that is easy to drink."

A little disappointed given the price and hype. However, it was still a solid beer. Very sweet aroma. Can smell the citrus and sweet malts. Taste is sweet with the citrus and sweet malts.

I finally tried Leffe, blond beer with a dark appearance, I agree that it is a connoisseur beer, most people probably would not enjoy but I did

hopscotch (9037) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2005
Bottle... RBSG2005... Golden ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Good retention with thick, creamy lacework. The aroma and flavor are all about banana and clove. A little too sweet. Medium-bodied and creamy with lively carbonation. Lengthy, sweet, spicy finish.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Pours hazy golden and has a great sweet aroma of banana, citrus, sweet malts and that familiar musty Belgian yeast. Flavor is big on cloves and bananas and is rather sweet and dry. I know this is a mass produced InBev "Abbey" beer, but itís still a decent brew.

jcwattsrugger (11078) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 22, 2005
Abbey de Abbey Belgian style-12 oz bottle-pours a thick white foamy head and the color is golden. Aroma is musty. Flavor is good for class, although a little on the light side. It tastes creamy, then cinnamon/banana comes through. Finishes OK.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JUL 22, 2005
Bottle at Andyís. This is one beer that I have been avoiding all my life. Golden clear, thin white head. Banana clove aroma, much like a German wheat. Malty sweet banana clove flavors, that build. Malty sweet finish. A little too sweet, almost cloying. Flavors donít build well when they warm up.

HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (330ml) - in tulip glass. Pours with aggressive white, foamy, rocky head - artful lacing - a clear, slightly amber gold. Aroma of sweet malt, cigarette ash, banana, touch of tart white wine and clove. Flavour is very light, winey malt, ash bitter, spices and just enough hops - quite balanced. Mouthfeel is slightly acidic and minerally. long-ish finish, bitter alcohol last on tongue. Great balcony beer (guess where I am now!)

Wow! First thing in the morning, you canít beat this one. The flavor rolls off the palate while the aroma lingers joyfully in the mouth. This is one beer that WILL brighten any day. Enjoy and CHEERS.
