"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."

Tranquillity (1453) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2006
Bottle at bierhuis rotterdam, helsinki. Brings back memories of my Amsterdam/Vlissingen trip... The belgian alternative to Koff, I suppose. Aroma with fruit, berries. Very light brown colour. Very foamy palate, taste of cloves, finishes with raisins. Nice, in a good way.

alexanderj (3414) - Branson, Missouri, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Bottle. Poured into Leffe chalice. Golden color, hint of auburn. Minimal white head. Strong yeast and clove aroma; also wheat and banana. Sweet taste with hint of spice. Slightly bitter end. Easily drinkable, alchohol not noticeable. Big fan of most Belgian ales; this slightly above average.

berkshirejohn (5163) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2006
Bottle: bready aroma; golden colour with rapidly fading white head, lightly carbonation;well balanced sweet and bitter taste, which prickles in the mouth. Pleasantly bitter aftertaste.

mjg74 (2831) - Salem, Oregon, USA - SEP 28, 2006
Bottle, Liquid Solutions. Pours a nice solid golden color. Strong yeast aroma with a hint of spice and grain. Some strong banana notes as well. Smooth slightly sweet flavor of yeast and grain. Slightyl fruity. Bitter finish. Maybe even a hint of alcohol.

hepburn82 (143) - SCOTLAND - SEP 27, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2006 Bottled. Pours somewhere between gold and copper with minimal head. Big cream and banana nose (milkshake!!). Flavour is tree fruit (predominantly pear) and more NaNa. Finish is a tad disappointing with less depth and longevity for a beer of such initial complexity. Very sweet but nice bitterness to compensate. I love strong ales and banana tasting wheats so it ticks the boxes for me.........

Grovlam (4166) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2006
One of the first beers that open my eyes to what great beer could tast like. Smooth, nice and very drinkable, with a light color and tast. A slight bit of spice and a ending smooth bitternis but not overdoing it.

BeerBiker (1413) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2006
On tap in Århus. Once one of my favorites, but now I even won’t buy it on discount. Metallic flavor, but good notes of christmastime also. Aroma a little bit hoppy.

DruncanVeasey (7634) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2006 Banana and mysterious spice in the nose (clove?). For me, one of the beers that started all this off, and one of the reasons I’ll never have to drink Budweiser or Carling again. So I can’t be too critical. But somehow I’m not loving it like I did. Yes, lots of fruity yeast, banana and a mellow, Hefeweizen-like wheatiness. But also some offputting cardboard and alcohol notes I’ve never noticed before. Maybe it’s just a bad bottle. And maybe once you’ve tasted Corsendonk, Orval and Westmalle, there’s no going back to buying this by the crate-load.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Bottle, served in a Leffe chalice. Clear, saturated brassy gold. Small soapsud head fades quickly, but leaves excellent lacing. Rich, sweet fruity bouquet: honey, banana, mango, lavender. Flavors of honey and herbs, earth, vanilla, and a moderately sharp charcoal bitterness. Clipped metallic finish. Palate is fleeting sugary-syrupy, then airy with fluffy carbonation. Faint banana and mint aftertaste.

pubbe (493) - Højbjerg, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2006
Bottle. Golden amber with white mostly lasting head. Aromas offers a yeasty sweetness and a distinct note of hay/flowers. The sweetness is a little over the top in the flavor, but is somewhat balanced by the slightly hoppy and creamy finish that lasts for about a minute.
