330ml bottle. Clear golden color with a nice white head. Aromas of banana, yeast and malt. Flavor is mildly sweet, fruity, malty, and rich. Smooth and creamy, and a bit salty. Spicy hoppy finish. Very Nice! I like it. Extra points for low price ($8.99 a six). these will go fast.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 3, 2005 Draft, snifter. Straw/gold hue. No variation in color. Tall, white, frothy, lasting head leaves great lacing. Banana, hay, flowers, bread aromas. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter finish. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Clean aroma and flavor. The bottom line is: So it’s not the most complex, but hell, it tastes like BANANA NUT BREAD!!! I was expecting to slam this, but I can’t. Maybe I just had that one glass out of a million, but it was pretty damn good.
I’ve had a few bottles now too...it’s still pretty damn good in my book. A little more acidic in the bottles.

I’d only drink Leffe Blond if it was the only Belgian beer I was likely to see for a very long time.
It has a very ’industrial beer’ quality to it--lacking in charm, style or distinctive flavor. It’s also hoppier than usual for an abbey beer--as is it’s stablemate Stella Artois in the lager category.
Aside from availability, I see nothing to recommend this puppy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice golden color with a floral rose aroma. Some honey notes in both the taste and the aroma. Again another sweet malt beer, but better tasting than some of the others I have tried.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Active gold color with some shiny orange and a big white head that produces nice lacing. The aroma is a tad sour with light malt and a hint of yeast. Also some nice fruit in the clean aroma. Velvete smooth feel, sweet malts and a sizeable yeast feel and flavor. Good clean sweet finish.

My favorite of the not-so-strong beers if freshly tapped. Very smooth, accessible taste, a bit sweet.

Now available as a regular in Wetherspoons. Great ale. Warm and spicy with an attractive glow. Very refreshing. And quite heady. This will catch up on you. Not a session beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear pale color, light head, moderate carbonation and no lacing. Nose of pale malt, citrusy yeast and crisp hopping. The flavor is watery and crisp with bitterness & tangy yeast. A bit too clean for the style with sharp alcohol and yeast notes. Finishes creamy and acidic but nicely balanced for me.
