"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."

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2006 What a perfect summer ale. Great tinge of hops and fluffy carbonation along with a spicy fruitiness that tantalizes the tongue. Refreshing and complex. Beer snobs will scorn it because it is made by Interbrew but it is still good.

Poured to a pale golden color, with foamy white head that lasted the entire bottle, with high carbonation and excellent lacing. Aroma was very hoppy and spicy, mostly clove. Flavor was a continuation of the hops and clove, with some hint of other spices, and a trickle of malty sweetness. Aroma and flavor were consistent as the beer warmed, and the finsih was very good and smooth. I really enjoyed this blonde.

Nobody can honestly claim trappist or wheat beers taste nice because they don’t. Granted - they’re better than commercial lager, but their real appeal is that they conjure images of monks brewing non-commercial beer using wild yeast. Cunningly, this appeals to both ratebeerians and young, adventurous drinkers alike. A marketers dream, but a total con. Simply put, this is Buckfast tonic wine for London yahoos.

DarkMagus (473) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 4, 2006
Pours a clear orange/amber with a good amount of foamy head to it, though it disappeared very quickly, leaving behind a very thin layer on the surface. Aromas of malt, citrus, grass, cloves, general non-descript belgian-type spiciness. This isn’t the ultimate Belgian Ale by any means, but it’s a great "utilitarian", dare I say "session" sort of beer for me.

Clear amber body with a medium creamy white head. Sweet malty aroma with some light spice. Sweet lightly spiced flavor with some fruit and malt in the end.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2006
Gold body with a medium white head. Good Belgian aroma, some cheddar accents as well. Bready taste, grain and malts dominate... some light hops in the ending. Smooth palate, though nothing exciting.

Brown bottle, 330 ml, expiry date: 05/05/07; eye: golden yellow, clear, nice white head made up of tiny, compact bubbles, head falls rather rapidly, lacing; nose: yeast, spices, apple, cider, alcohol; mouth: flavors are less pronounced than the nose led to believe, almost one-dimensionish, apple, a bit of spices, followed by some bitterness, finale where the bitterness is supported by some alcohol making the bitterness more agressive and, a hint of sweetness comes along, slightly sweet, mildly bitter, full in the mouth, somewhat fizzy, a bit astringent; overall: good FRANÇAIS Bouteille brune, 330 ml, date de péremption : 05/05/07; oeil : jaune dorée, claire, belle mousse blanche formée de petites bulles compactes, s’affaisse assez rapidement, dentelle; nez : levure, épices, pomme, cidre, alcool; bouche : saveurs moins prononcées que le nez laissait espérer, un peu unidimensionnel même, pomme, un peu d’épices, suivi d’amertume, finale avec une amertume appuyée d’alcool ce qui rend le tout un peu plus agressif avec une petite pointe de sucré qui apparaît brièvement, légèrement sucrée, moyennement amère, pleine en bouche, relativement pétillante, légère astringence; en résumé : bonne

wanderingman (54) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2006
Poured a deep golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma had some fruit in it (possibly apples). Taste is a little sweet with lots of malts and some fruit, but finishes with a bit of a bitter kick that rounds it out quite nicely. Was excellent for my first Belguim Blond.
