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."

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) The blond Leffe is far from the best Leffe. Pretty nice, huge head and a beautiful golden colour. But no real characteristica to put this above the average blond ale. 060493

lamas (1360) - Washington DC, USA - APR 30, 2005
Bottle. Best before date: 12/04/06. Bright gold pour with a huge and fluffy off-white head. Chunks of lacing. Aroma is crisp, tangy, citrusy, yeasty and spicy. Flowery. Hints of bananas too. Light and crisp tasting. Very refreshing. Citrusy and spicy. Sweet yet tangy. Very poundable.

rederic (2923) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2005
Golden color, nice foamy head, sweet fruity notes, crisp pale malt aromas follow through on a medium-bodied palate with fruity, sweet pale malt, honeyish note, light bittering hops with sweet malted accent finish.

UnsofistaCat (237) - Garden City, Michigan, USA - APR 27, 2005
Price is not a ball buster. Golden color, tad of red? Red rose nose. Hoping for a Duvel style head and lace but severely disappointed. Very nice taste. Banana, roses and I swear I taste honey cornbread…. in this case, the corn description is a compliment. Finish is so so. Really, a great beer for the money

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 27, 2005
Dark yellow color, big lasting white head. Apple, spices, mild banana and sweetness in aroma. Medium bodied. Fruity, mildly spicy flavor, medium alcohol comes up in the end with mild bitterness. Good basic Belgian ale with nice touch of alcohol.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4919) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2012 Another beer that I have had numerous times but had not gotten around to rating. This one is my go to Belgian draft when cost is a factor. Sampled on draft for this rating the beer pours a medium golden color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet and sugary with a light fruity sour tang. The flavor is sweet and sugary with a light fruity and light tangy malt presence. The mouthfeel is nicely thick.

hefevice (72) - Brisbane beer desert, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2005
Bottle, served at a restaurant in refrigerated and completely inappropriate glassware. As it was my first Belgian Pale Ale of the non-heavy variety I wasn’t sure what to expect. Poured sparkling clear golden colour with two fingers of bubbly head that lasted well and left heaps of lacing. When I smelt it, I thought there had been some sort of labelling error, as it smelt just like a German kristallweizen - all bananas and cloves. Same with the taste. What the...? Only difference was the mouth feel was a little heavier than the average kristall. Will definitely come back and re-rate this after more experience with the style.

BeerandBlues2 (9685) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2005 Pours pale yellow-gold with a white foamy head. Yeast, wheat malt (grain) and banana, fruity aromas. Yeasty start, bananas next, and then finishes spicy-hoppy. Mild buttery cream palate, a tad fizzy.

GarethYoung (1109) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 10, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2005 [bottle: peckhams] pours a clouded yellow colour with a reasonable head which maintains a thin layer and laces well. aromas of yeast, banana, cloves and maybe a little spices. reasonable body, dry finish. for the price and availibility its not bad.

Fukito (738) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 10, 2005
Bottle Dark golden color, with a creamy looking head. Nice Lacing. Taste is very rich, although neutral at the same time. From inital looks, it doesn’t seem to have much body, but in taste it is full flavored. A really noble brew, although mass produced, seems to keep the mistique of abbey beers.
