3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge coarse white head. Deep yellow body with ongoing carbonation. Sweet fruity aroma with notes of banana. Taste is sweet banana with quite a bit of bitterness. Some soft metal hops in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel. Hoppy taste lingers. Overall surprisingly hoppy. One of the least complex blondes, but still nice. (0.33l bottle.)

clear golden with little quick disappearing white head. Malty and spicy aroma. mouthfull is watery - thin texture. Finish is spicy and a bit bitter! This blonde is highly overrated! Much better "Belgian blondes "out there!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden color with medium white head. Blegian malty aroma that smells of spices. Flavor is fairly simple, but the maltyness is really nice in the beer, and the beer is suprisingly full bodied. High sweetness for an ale. Low bitterness ,but it kicks a bit at the end to keep the sweetness from being cloying. A very solid belgian ale.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Met Grill. Headless, but beautiful dark straw colored body with some white film on top and a bit of lace. This isn’t much of a beer-lover’s restaurant, if anyone’s keeping track: no one on staff seemed to know what style any beer on the list was, and the list didn’t always say (for those of you outside Seattle, this is a little surprising due to their prices). Anyway, the beer had a good aroma of sugar, yeast, and the tiniest whiff of hop. Medium body, carbonated enough to be refreshing with steak and potatoes. The candi sugar hides until the very end, just appearing for the finish. Very tasty, refreshing, and easy to drink.

Leffe is one of my favorite Belgian blondes. It has great flavor, color, aroma; it’s the whole package. I’ve bought two six-packs over the last year and would buy it more often if there weren’t so much beer out there that I still haven’t tried. Leffe is a must try for any Belgian Blondie enthusiast.

Not qute the same quality as the Brune, but still tasty. Lively carbonation. A bit light-flavoured, but that is mostly perception brought on by limited sampling of primarily extremely strong beers.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2007 Re-rate, draft again, 11/07: Pour was pilsner like in color and head, lacing only decent. The aroma had some belgian fruity ester aspects, bread, earthy, and grass. Flavor was predictable from the flavor, the finish somewhat dry from hops and carbonation, though. Fairly balanced, but not my cup of tea. Original rating: A nice Belgian, but it just seemed they cheated and put too much candy sugar in the brew. Hops were noticeable, but again, not enough balance. Some spiciness detectable. Golden yellow in color with decent carbonation.
