"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."

Bubbly long-lasting head over a pretty golden ale. Pepper and buuble gum in the aroma. Fruity/yeasty/spicy flavors in a fairly complex brew. Sparkling mouthfeel and a decidedly bitter hop finish.

The aroma is complex and unique. It smells like bubble gum, cloves, floral hops, malt, yeast, pepper, and fruit. The appearance is golden and the head is large. The flavor is as unique as the aroma with many of the same qualities. The taste of bubble gum, spices, bread like malt and yeast, as well as a fruity flavor that is hard to define, are all in there. Also, the alcohol and hops are quite assertive in this one. Palate is weak for the style but its smooth. Aftertaste is bitter and yeasty with some lingering fruitiness. Even though this has all the makings of a really good beer (except for the bubble gum) the flavors just don’t seem to come together well and it falls short of being a really good beer, but its still above average.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2005
It’s smells wonderful, I just wish it would smell more! Fantastic yeasty, spicy aroma, with frutiness and hoppiness. Weak flavour of...beer. A bit watery for a Belgian, it probably would taste fantastic without filtering.

Golden color with thick white lasting head. Yeast and pepper aromas. yeasty taste with a touch of citric flavours and bread. A nice beer.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 This is standard faire for a Belgian Ale - golden colored with a big-bubbled head. The nose is a bit salty or peppery, and the taste is mostly over-sweet, bready malts with a bit of a bitterness that certainly doesn’t stick around long enough to lend any complexity to the brew. The mouthfeel is thin, but this is disguised by a heavy carbonation that tickles the tongue. Think: liquid baguette.

Dark Amber, thick white head. Sweet aroma. Medium body and texture. Medium carbonation and a sweet finsih. Hints of honesy and lemon but still sugary.

DanielBrown (3927) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2005
On tap at Drift, Moseley, Birmingham. Finally rated this paradigm-shifting (in Britian anyway) Belgian perennial. Better than I remember: light, fizzy, with honey and lemon tones. Sweet, perhaps a little too sweet, but crisp and quite drinkable for the strength. A good fallback option.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2005 Leffe blond is probably the most representative belgian beer around. A very interesting honey flavor.
