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."

Not bad, not great pretty drinkable. Pours nice and blond, rocky white head that lasts. A little sweet for my taste, but some hops to balance it out. A little malt and hops in the nose with some fruity estery stuff goin on. Decent.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2004
Bottled. Attractive golden body, white-ish head with some stamina, sweet smack on the lips almost balanced with a hoppy finish. Hints at better things but doesn’t make good on it’s potential.

Bottle. medium head with good lacing. golden yellow colour. taste is well balanced and goes down remarkably smooth considering higher alcohol content.

GregClow (2881) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2004
Clear golden-amber colour with a creamy white head. Aroma is pleasantly yeasty and fruity. Good body with nice carbonation. Flavour has a good balance of honeyish sweetness and dry, citric hops. Less complex than many Belgian ales, but for what is essentially a macro version of the style, it’s nothing to sneeze at.

TChrome (1417) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Appearance is nice enough, a dark golden color with an egg white head that is somewhat retained. Aroma is somewhat of a mystery to me as about all I detected was a very light hop presence and a tiny bit of fruit. Underwhelming to say the least. Very muted flavors, also. This one is definetely not connecting for me. Way below the average Belgian.

madquacker (1036) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2004
A bit too fuzzy and fruity for my palate. Underlying tones of rotting garbage behind a lemony fizziness. A novelty but thats about it.

Buena cerveza aunque ha empeorado un poco (Ultimamente les ponen demasiado gas a las cervezas, me imagino que para que duren mas tiempo)

The only thing that stands out about this beer in context of the Euro mega brews is that is incredibly well balanced. Just enough hop bitterness to offset the honey sweetness of the malt...otherwise this would be a very sweet beer. Certainly a commercialized toned down representation of an abbey. Poured a gold color with lots of effervescence and a large white head that stays for most of the drink. Aromas of sweet fruits and a hint of alcohol. Starts very crisp because of the effervescence then sits with a substantial body to the palate with good balance of hop and sweet malts, finishes with a lingering sweet taste (I wanted to describe it as "bubblegum") but it defies my vocabulary to describe. This is a euro mega brew with some abbey characteristics but with a more smooth drinkability. I will buy some to take over to friends for a supper if they are not used to stronger abbey beers.
