5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours a beautifull deep golden colour topped by a huge white creamy head. This beer has a sweet aroma and sweet taste. Aftertaste is sweet and it's quite long lasting. It's one my 2 favourite beers (the other is BITburger) but i hate the fact that i don't get to drink it much since only a couple of pubs offer this beer in my area

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Has a golden/amber color with a lot of carbonation and a spice smell. Taste is of sugar and spice, but nothing nice, well that's not true I just wanted to say that... Anyway the taste was pretty spicey and it finishes kind of fizzy. Overall not a bad Belgain, probably the most easy one to drink...

Supermarket abbey beer. Interbrew has created a market for Belgian beers. If only they had good ones to sell to us.
Too bland to be considered in its class.
Yeasty flavours are okay, but the sweet finish lacks focus. It okay to look at though and the glass is nice...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep amber with a pillowy white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, yeast and brown sugar. Very malty flavor with molassas and toffee shining through. Finish is fairly clean and dry and seems to balance the front-end maltiness very well. Not bad at all.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2009 Golden amber with a big frothy white head. Smells of sugar, very floral, taste is mild and bubbly, and a little spicy, and is a good representation of an even Belgian blonde. Doesn’t have to be big to be exceptional. Draft version I enjoy a little more, full of sweet malts and honey-like candy sugar. Too sweet.

I was expecting more. Leffe Blond Abbey Ale, not my style. I also bought it in a 12oz bottle, and it just seemed blah tasting. Nice aroma, very effervescent, pours beautifully, nice rich golden-orange color, but just too bland tasting. I must not be an Abby Ale lover, but Leffe has a very cool drinking chalice/glass.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This beer has gone stale on me. It came in a 12 oz.bottle, and poured out a light yellow color. Straight slam into a pint glass only produced a slight head that quickly dissipated to small clumps of yeast for a head. Not much aroma here. Tasted like cardboard. It has gotten oxidized something fierce. Not the best tasting thing for a beer, especially a belgian ale. I won't be buying this again, that's for sure.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A golden beer with a loose white head that soon disperses. Distinct bubble gum aroma. Tastes of banana with a refreshing finish. A good summer BBQ beer, easily drunk for a 6.6.

A very easy "beginner" beer in the Belgian style...not a lot to say about it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A burnt gold color with a medium white head. A pepper, fruit aroma. Sweet malt taste that has a somwhat spicy palate. Smooth, a good beer for the fall weather.
