"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."

almopina (87) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 10, 2006
Clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is spicy with hints of yeast and malt. Medium to full bodied ale. Very easy to drink. Tastes sweet yeast, banana, and has a very nice spicy finish. Nice on the tongue.

ChazMania (661) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 9, 2006
Bottled. Aroma of bananna and a bit of flowers. Mildly sweet flavor and the yeast is noticeable. Easy to drink, even my wife likes it! She doesn’t like my nornal hop intense beer. I need to find some Leffe Brune as I’m told its great.

YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - OCT 9, 2006
Medium bodied, sweet, too sweet for me, ripe fruits, some yeastiness and wheat like notes and also some spicyness, an ok beer.

zach8270 (4003) - Henrietta, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2006
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Clear gold in color with a thin white head. Aroma is spicy and slightly sweet with hints of yeast and some malt. Flavor is dry and yeasty with some grainyness in the middle and a sweet and spicy finish. Almost wheat-like at the end with the coriander, yeast, and other spices. Very easy to drink though.

Stefano (1923) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2006
Clear light copper body. The aroma is sweet, yeasty, and slightly spicy. The flavor is fruity and yeasty, with a bit of alcohol present. It’s smooth, but stays nicely on the tongue.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2006
On tap. Pours a translucent golden yellow with a finger of white, soapy head. Aromas of sweet pears, muscat grapes, sugar, bubblegum, and other yeasty spice. A little bit on the sweet side, but also contains a distinct grainy, herbal character. Light bodied, sugary mouthfeel with a mild, tongue warming carbonation. The malt dimensions have a light, grainy quality, and are supplemented by some notes of hay and herbal spice. Very yeasty, but the malt background doesn’t stand up to the yeasty side strongly enough.

Augustijn55 (82) - Izegem, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2006
Bottle, 33cl. Golden with white lasting head. Aromas offers a yeasty sweetness and a distinct note of hay/flowers. The sweetness is a little over the top in the flavor. This beer was about 15 to 20 years ago much better !

LeoN (26) - Athens, GREECE - OCT 2, 2006
Tap and Bottle(330ml). Tap is better. Great golden yellow colour. Great head, sweet begining with a slightly bitter ending. Loved it...i tried in a bottle but was not so satisfied like in the tap. Worths drinking it more than once.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2006
330ml Bottle: Poured a pumpkin colour with a fairly thick marshmallow head that behaved oddly. It was big to start, faded away to almost nothing, but countered afterwards with excellent lacing and some good retention as it warmed. Aroma of apples and grapes alongside caramel malts, but sadly quite faint. The flavour is peppery apples and cloves with those faint touches of hops hitting the back of the tongue. No problem tipping this one back, but not as good as the Brune.
