"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."

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 26, 2007
Sampled from 12-oz bottle at Cellar’s Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN. Pours a light clear golden brew with an average white head that slowly dissolves and leaves behind a siapy and spotty lacing. Aroma of sweet bread dough, yeast, banana, some white peper and a touch of pear. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation and a creamy texture. Flavors has a good balance of bread dough yeast and banana character. Finish is semi-sweet with a banana aftertaste.

bottled. Very typical Belgian, straight to the point. Yeast, malts, a bit of alcohol. That bit could be more. Good but I avoided these in the fridge for over a month, good but oh-so typical.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2007
Pous a clear golden color with about a half inch of wihte head. The scent was of dried fruit, yeast and some spice. Very good carbonation and balance between the malt and hops. A decent middle of the road Blonde.

Now that I have become a beer snob, I find Leffe Blonde a pedestrian beer. At the time of my first tasting many years ago I wrote that it was succulent and rich, round and smooth. Found the carbonation level high but soft, with small bubbles and a pleasantly soft, mellow mouthfeel. Aroma didn’t seem like much to me: almost stale at times but becomes fruity as the beer warms. Many tastes can be discovered by swishing it around in the mouth...Leffe is ubiquitous on tap in bars and makes a good standby. The glassware is nice.

Yellow colour but pours to golden, Tasted on tap and bottle at Bruselles and Bruge. Medium bodied with tasty hoppy aromas. Very good beer.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2007
Clear gold, with a large loose head. Dominant malt aroma, with some yeast and wheat like aromas as well. Very yeasty flavor, without much body. Clean, quick finish.

DeadGuyFrank (347) - http://westchesterbeer.com, USA - AUG 13, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2007 An everyday Belgian ale. Somewhat yeasty, nice hop character, smooth drinking with citrus zest coming through in the back of throat. Pours a dark golden color with a nice cloudy head. Good brew.

NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2007
Bottle. Pours a perfect blonde color with a fluffy white head. The aroma is sweet and fruity. The flavor is of bananas, sugar, and a bit of a grassy hop. A little alcohol comes to the party as the beer warms, but not offfendingly.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - AUG 7, 2007
Bottiglia da 33cl comprata alla Standa a Ventimiglia; versata nel bicchiere ’ufficiale’ appaiato. Schiuma candida persistente e colore dorato leggermente scuro; aroma scarso e più che altro lievitoso. Corpo leggero, sapore dolciastro ma tendenza all’amarognolo. Forse la più cheap delle birre "d’abbazia" (ovviamente escludendo la terribile e insapore Affligem), è comunque piuttosto potabile.
