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."

blankboy (6402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear sparkling gold with a large lasting fluffy white head. Decent lacing. Aroma of yeast, honey, sugar and some slightly tart fruit and spices. Sweet flavour is yeasty, fruity and spicy with a light hoppy alcoholic finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good but a little too sugary sweet for my liking.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 15, 2006
UPDATED: APR 20, 2006 Bottle. Pours amber-yellowish and fairly clear. Distinctive Belgian aroma of yeast and fruit. Taste is similar, although a bit more bland than most Belgians. A fairly nondescript example of the style, but certainly enjoyable, if a bit too sweet.

Dimitri99 (63) - USA - APR 14, 2006
Wasn’t able to pour so picked the average score for appearance. Being in Amsterdam and doing Amsterdam things might be distorting my perception of this beer, but I find it smooth with a nice complex bitter finish.

White clean head. Amber yellow, filtered. Small bubbles from the bottom. Complex grains aroma, a little bitter, sweet frutal notes. Thin texture. Pleasing taste, good end.

Bottle. Golden color with a nice creamy head. Fruity and heavy scent of Belgian yeast and hops. Big palate and a very fruity taste. The best of the Leffe series according to me.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - MAR 30, 2006
Tap. Golden color with a medium head. Not much of an aroma, can discern the typical Belgian yeasty and fruity notes. Flavors are fruity as well and a bit of alcohol. Probably one of the best Belgian session ales.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Pours a clear dark golden with a thin wispy white head. Aroma of sweet Belgian pale malt and lots of fruity banana and strawberry. Body starts with a viscous malty sweetness balanced with some peppery coriander spice. A nice, smooth and enjoyable Belgian ale.
