"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: DEC 15, 2007 Not as sophisticated as its claims to have been around since 1240 age. More bubbly than the average blond. A strong bitter taste, though tamed by sweetness. Has more weight and consistency than one would expect.

A great head of completely white, with a nicely balanced taste between bitterness and sweetness.

DrnkMcDermott (2874) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2006 Bottled. Pours out a clean blond color, underneath a head of whipped egg white. Smell gives initial impression of Belgian sugar, but then a good "beery" smell comes in. Taste is the usual sugary Belgian at first, then the slightly sharp European hop note becomes noticeable. Goes down nicely, if a little gassy. Still tends nicely toward the abbey ale style than some Jever clone.

jdjuice (403) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - DEC 30, 2005
A nicely balanced beer. Seems like a mix between a traditional belgian ale and a pilsner, the hoppiness seems to resemble the pilsner. Pours gold with rocky, soild head. Spicy and citrusy, pleasantly light, but maybe lacking slightly in flavor complementation. Quite nice.

DerWeg (1546) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2005
Moderate sweet malty flavor, a bit of weight to it, bitterness of hops is not very complex, a rather workmanlike but solid offering.

walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2005
Bottle. Golden color with white head. Aromas of light toasty malt and yeasty bread dough, with a pleasant sugary sweetness over it all. Light palate, crisp and refreshing, but sweet and heavy enough to linger, probably due to the 6.6%-- a surprise in this one. Very enjoyable.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - DEC 13, 2005
Tap @ Hop Devil Grill. Light gold clor with a lasting white head. Aroma is sweet banana with hardly any noticeable hops. Taste is light and sweet with crushed grains and toast. Just a bit sweet but ok stuff.

Tmoney99 (11624) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2005
Bottle. Hazy golden color with a large frothy with head that was lasting. Average wheaty citrus aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Good sweet bitter citrus flavor with a long refreshing finish.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - DEC 8, 2005
Golden light color with a bountful head. Heavenly yeasty sweet aroma, almost like fresh banana bread. Sweet texture in the mouthfeel. Full bodied and it is easy drinking. Light a little bitter in the aftertaste. A very nice beer.
