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."

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - DEC 28, 2004
A Belgian starter beer. Nothing great, but not overwhelming either. Aroma is mainly malty, a little bit of spice and yeast in the flavor.

asheft (2509) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2004
Very bright golden orange. The foamy head dissipated quickly to a lasting film. Spicy aroma with some black pepper, orange, clove, and a touch of raisin. The flavour reflected the aroma with a spiciness that was not exclusively clove and included some alcohol and a touch of hop bitterness. Medium body with a nice warming alcohol feel and a very clean followthrough.

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2004
Bottle. Slightly fruity aroma. Good creamy, stable head. Yeasty and a little sweet flavour with a little bitterness. Aftertaste is also yeasty.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2004
Pale and not quite clear with low carbonation and a quickly dissapating white head. Sharp aromas of yeast, grain, hay, fruit. Decent body and mouthfeel. Mellow caramel and yeast flavors finishing with a small but unpleasant bitter bite. Is better on draught but somewhat run of the mill either way.

jcc83 (137) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 14, 2004
Light golden body, with a fluffy white head. Aroma dominated by an enticing thick yeasty sensation. Flavor is also very yeasty, with fruity notes of banana and citrus, followed by a vanilla accent. A bit thin and uninspiring, but an enjoyable beer nonetheless.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - DEC 13, 2004
Pours golden with a large white fluffy lasting head. Yeasty aroma dominates, with some more fruity and spicy notes as it warms. Simple biscuity malt and yeasty flavour. Fairly innofensive but overall not really a bad beer.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - DEC 10, 2004
The aroma is lemoney and bready (is that a word?) The appearance is a dark golden color with a rather large head. . I taste molasses, alcohol, pecans, and lemons. It is extremely doughy like uncooked rolls. The aftertaste is thick with a slimy sticky sweetness to it. Overall this is too sweet and cloying. This would be ok on your pancakes but not in my glass. PPPPHHHEW!

ALLOVATE (2410) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2005 Apparently the younger of the Abbaye de Leffe range, brewed to win back some beer drinkers that were lost to cheap imported lagers, nonetheless. Tasted from the bottle in a Leffe chalice. Poured a unique, bright honey gold, with a dense two-layered head that left legs down the glass. Aroma was sweet and wafting, with citrus (oranges) and candy sugar, and an almost roasted nut-toffee end. Flavour seemed level with the strong aroma. Malt accents and caramelised sugars, not overpowering, with slight yeasty esters and a smooth swallow, make for a decent admirable beer. A decent quaffer.

Burner (78) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 28, 2004
Sampled at a Wetherspoon’s in Wales. Quite a nice ale with a creamy head, unfortunatly served in something resembling a cheap wine glass, Nice golden colour, with a full body and nice hoppy aroma. It has a nice dry crisp after taste, but packs quite a punch when you drink it on a hot summers day!

Dorqui (2105) - Brescia, ITALY - NOV 23, 2004
Compact and adherent foam. Loaded color, veiled and lightly extinguished. Good bitter but with a body that introduces liqueur notes.
