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."

Yellow colour with a huge white head. Aroma of cirus and spices. Flavour of citrus, spices with notes of yeast and grain, slightly bitter finish.

Bottle: Slightly fruity aroma with a hint of must. Pours golden yellow with a thin white head that disappears rather quickly. Fairly yeasty taste with a strong alcohol taste. slight carbonation, but goes down very easy.

My favourite Leffe. Simple as that. The Tripel is good, but this is better. An easy drinking Abbey beer, you can’t ask for more.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2005 For my money, this is the best of Leffe’s range. It’s dangerously drinkable. Poured the colour of golden syrup with a big foaming head that left plenty of lace. The nose is ripe and summery. Hints of ripening hay, bubble gum, yeast, cookie-like malt and plenty of alcohol. It’s firm and succulent at the front of the mouth with a fine juicy berry middle and a surprisingly light footprint. It’s not especially complex but solid drinking all the same. (Bottle)

Bottle. i dont know if this one was almost infected ? Clear golden color with foamy white head that leaves some lacing on the glass. Yeast and detergent aroma. Taste of yeast and sugar. Je pense que cette bière etait sur le point ou peut etre qu elle commencait a etre infecter. De couleur doré avec de belles petites bubulles et un collet blanc mousseux qui colle au verre. Odeur de levure et de détergent. Au gout, elle était sucré et goutait la levure, très ordinaire, a réessayer.

Bottle, at home. Golden with large white head. Light aroma of malt and yeast. Moderate sweet, typical abbey ale.

BBD 2006. Moderate amount of white head, with a bronze-copper colored body, very clear, highly filtered. Aroma of strong cotton candy. Wow, so I guess this is what people talk about when they say a beer has a cotton candy nose. It smells like German hefe weisse yeast, to be honest, with some bubble gum (could be belgian or german) but also light banana. Flavor of alcohol, bubble gum, and phenolic fruitiness (light colored fruits, nectarines, lemons, peaches, apricots). Initially, I like it alot, with a big fruit and candy sugar kick, but it never really develops in to much, just staying sweet with some sourish yeast in the background and a peculiar alcohol note lingering. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation.

Not a bad beer by any means. A light amber with pleasing yeast aroma...my only qualm is that it pronounces its 6.6% alcohol content a bit. That said, it goes down easily with very little aftertaste. A good alternative to domestic water beers.

If I was stranded on a desert Island, this is the beer I would choose. Very clean, crisp with a mellow buzz. Belguim, great for Leffe and Bouviers. Love’em both.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2006 Very good one. First blond beer I like so much for a long time. It is not strong but not soft, but I would say it is almost a MOnastery beer. Yes.
