"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."

Draft at the Met Grill. Headless, but beautiful dark straw colored body with some white film on top and a bit of lace. This isn’t much of a beer-lover’s restaurant, if anyone’s keeping track: no one on staff seemed to know what style any beer on the list was, and the list didn’t always say (for those of you outside Seattle, this is a little surprising due to their prices). Anyway, the beer had a good aroma of sugar, yeast, and the tiniest whiff of hop. Medium body, carbonated enough to be refreshing with steak and potatoes. The candi sugar hides until the very end, just appearing for the finish. Very tasty, refreshing, and easy to drink.

bottle, 11.2 oz. easy and tasty, a strong feel of alcohol, becoming a fan of this style. Will drink this again.

Moderate yeasty aroma. Huge creamy off-white head. Excellent lacing. Mostly lasting longevity. Yellow body hue. Moderate bitter initial flavor. With an oily texture.

Leffe is one of my favorite Belgian blondes. It has great flavor, color, aroma; it’s the whole package. I’ve bought two six-packs over the last year and would buy it more often if there weren’t so much beer out there that I still haven’t tried. Leffe is a must try for any Belgian Blondie enthusiast.

Not qute the same quality as the Brune, but still tasty. Lively carbonation. A bit light-flavoured, but that is mostly perception brought on by limited sampling of primarily extremely strong beers.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2007 Re-rate, draft again, 11/07: Pour was pilsner like in color and head, lacing only decent. The aroma had some belgian fruity ester aspects, bread, earthy, and grass. Flavor was predictable from the flavor, the finish somewhat dry from hops and carbonation, though. Fairly balanced, but not my cup of tea. Original rating: A nice Belgian, but it just seemed they cheated and put too much candy sugar in the brew. Hops were noticeable, but again, not enough balance. Some spiciness detectable. Golden yellow in color with decent carbonation.

Pale yellow color with orange tinge, with medium sized, thin, pure white head. Aroma is pretty estery, lots of bananna, faint pepper notes, touch of caramel, vanilla. Flavor is malty, reasonably sweet, fair amount of bananna, caramel, light pepper notes. FInish is pretty sweet.

11.2 oz bottle. Deep golden color with a large fluffy white head. Estery aromatics, clove and tropical fruit. Pineapple, clove ester flavors with a mildy caramel-like malt backing. Residual yeastingess in the finish with a mild lingering sweetness. Mouthfeel is light medium, somewhat smooth.
