"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 íconnoisseurí beer that is easy to drink."

Golden color with lots of lively bubbles; thick, white, creamy head that lessens but remains all the way through the beer; significant lacing. A fairly deep aroma of yeast, bread, hay, and caramel. Flavor is subtler, with yeast, bread, and some bitterness; alcohol is quite apparent unless you let the beer sit in the glass for some time before drinking; finish is slightly hoppy and bitter and will also have some alcohol astringency if drank immediately after opening. Medium body; creamy; faily heavy carbonation. A pleasant surprise, this beer is refreshing but not a lawnmower beer, but itís somehow missing something to make it a great beer.

Not very keen on this, it is quite dry in taste. Its colour is not refreshing as the brown one. Lacks the fruits and spices taste present in the brown..

Pale golden color with no head. Flavor was citrus and refreshing. Finish was a little bitter and un-remarkable. Certainly not a bad beer, there is just many better out there. Cheers.

330 ml bottle: Lasting pearly white head w/a deeply golden hue. Aromas of black pepper, lightly grainy malt, smooth balance of malts and esters as neither stands out over the other. Lightly floral alcohol w/ caramel undertones. Also a bit yeasty, but itís light. Very well balanced w/ a subtle spicy flavor. Floral and grainy flavors along w/ peppery yeast. Light caramel flavor undertones. Dry finish and aftertaste with spicy yeast and a light grainy malt. Also a little aftertaste of a hint of diacetyl. Highly carbonated, lighter body due to that fact, smooth body. Very nice beer! Tasty, yet not overpowering. Very nice newbie beer!

Bottle. In my opinion, a wildly underrated beer. Pours with a golden color and ample head. Smooth and full of complimenting flavors. As a side note, I first had this beer over pizza and wouldnít have it any other way. Could it be because of this beers slight hint of anchovie in its aftertaste?

beachbum25 (1085) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - DEC 18, 2006
Bottle-Poured a golden color w/a large, white, creamy, head. Light, floral, fruity aroma. Sweet, fresh, light, grainy flavor w/a touch of fruit & a little bit of spice. Not terribly complex, but very enjoyable. Not too heavy, reminded me somewhat of a Wheat Beer, but definite Belgian flavor. A great sesson Ale. Very drinkable.

Every once and a while I run into a brew and say, "I canít believe I havenít critiqued this one yet". Now that I hear this is an A-B distributed product, Iím not thrilled about it, but here it is, non-the-less. Dark golden color with a full, creamy off-white head. Visions of a wheat field abutted by a field of wild flowers and weeds after the first sniff. Slightly wort in scent, with a hint of DMS. Nice lace. Sweet grainy flavors. Granted not the grainy flavors of most, but a raw barley and wheat component, that makes this seem, for lack of a better term, "Cheap". In a blind test, this would rate as a better than average malt liquor.

Iíve had both bottled and on tap. This is my comparison point for blond Belgian Bier. Always dependable for a good drink. Nothing spectacualr, but never misses. Great bier to drink if you are tired of browns.

Bottle Trappist cool temperature, light aromas of malts, light in note bready, a bit of citrus. Nice golden color with a white head. Fruity and sweet light malts dominate, very little hop presence finishes, a bit bitter. Pretty good taste, a great session beer. Fairly light mouthfeel but not too watery. Overall not too bad and easily drinkable.
