"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."

Golden colour with big white who stays really fruity and fresh beer taste of yeast and banana gives a good mouth feeling and is easy to drink.

lagomswedish (213) - Umeå, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2007
On tap in Le Tip Top bar in Duras. This is the session beer in this rather tacky but very enjoyable French watering hole. In between shaking hands with complete strangers and oggling the rather buxom barmaid I managed to throw down a couple of these, but went onto pastis after the overpowering sweetness became too much for me. There are the usual cloves and spices with yeast and vanilla pods drowned in a medium carb pale orange body.

Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - APR 23, 2007
Bottled 33cl. Pours a deep golden beer. Sweet, lots of almond flavours, some caramel, very yeasty. Some citrussy and grassy elements. This beer has a very weak metallic, grainy feeling to it. (corn). I miss the spicy touch. The almond notes really come through quite well. Slightly bitter, yeasty finish. Very mild, not bad. But it surely doesn’ t have much compelexity to it.

Duster72 (117) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 16, 2007
Pours a clear golden with one finger head that dies down quickly and leaves little lacing. Aroma is yeast, orange, banana, cloves and malts. Taste is strong yeast with bready malts and strong orange character. Lemons, spices, and honey. Mouthfeel is pretty average with a clean finish. Very mild and drinkable example of the style.

It has an amber appearance and a clean, hoppy taste. It’s a very nice blonde. Have several!

From the first whiff I knew this was going to be a very tasty beer. Somewhat of a fruity taste, very enjoyable to drink.

Veeve (312) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2007
on tap at Eulogy Belgian Tavern. served in big beautiful glasses. smells fresh and outdoorsy, musky, grass, honey-lemon. pours a murky, blood-orange hue which tastes a bit oaky. my brother called it "smokey mahogany" but I’ll tell you right he was talking out of his....ha! finishes slightly sweet with caramel malts. this was the 2nd best beer of the belgian bar experience which is saying a lot. I could have had several. it went down so easy, so smooth, so tasty. a real winner that any and all would enjoy.
