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."

Somewhat weak but pleasant cardamom-clove aroma like a cheaper German wheat beer. This is a brew in a decent price range despite its shortcomings. Pours a thick head with large bubbles and spotted lacing; has a healthy golden color. Seems too sweet compared with most Belgian blonds (or clones) perhaps because of lower carbonation. The finish has the same cheap corn syrupiness yet with some more complex fruit blended in. This is not the best Belgian blonde, but it’s still an ok beer especially if you want to get a 6-pack and feel the buzz.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2005 Dark amber color with an ivory-white head that dollops, center-stage. Aromas of liqueured bananas and hops. Taste of honey.

A decent Belgian pale ale. A bit on the sweet side, and slightly more watery and less bold than I was expecting. The fruity flavor is quite "perfumey" in my opinion, has some dryness in the finish. Not too complex, but drinkable.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2005
Bottled. Aroma is yeasty, caramelly, fruity with some hints of cheese. Tastes fruity, malty with notes of citric and yeasty. Some spiciness, also. A very decent beer.

Light Golden color. Looks really pretty in the glass with a heavy white head. Smells of clove with a light sweet lingering flavor.

(on bottle, grand reserve) To me this is aclasic, one f the first belgians I had. (Besides that brownhaired chick, but I guess ya´ll heard that one before) Bog one the banana/yeast aromas. Full, almost creamy mouth feel, bt stilll very easy and drinkable. The hign carbonation, covers the sweetness well.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 20, 2005
Sparkling dark gold, big rocky white head.. The nose held notes of corriander, orange zest, some banana and clove, cotton candy, with lesser herbal and straw notes coming out as it warmed. Lightly sweet and somewhat grassy with a light hop dose coming in at the end. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, crisp, sahara dry finish. A good beginner Belgian ale....

BCAR (221) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2005
Common looking and smelling belgian blond, but I really found the taste appealing. Excellent mouthfeel, spiced just right- banana, clove, and orange. Usually I find something off with the taste of these, but I find it quite balanced. Very easy to drink many.

farmboy (218) - Barwon Heads, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2005
Fairly average beer to be honest. Had it on tap at the telegraph Hotel in Hobart and wasn’t particularly impressed. Had a skunky aroma and metallic taste. Would drink it again, but only if someone else paid for it.

DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2005
Bottle, form The Alex in Derby. Light, pale yellow in colour. This is basically a classic Belgian beer. Same kind of taste as most Trappist beers, only not so mind-blowingly strong and as such far more drinkable.
