COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg and bottle: Filtered.
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."

Pours cloudy orange with a strong white head. The taste is very wheaty - as are most German Weiss beers. It's not terrible, but not my choice for enjoyable drinking.

jgb9348 (4486) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2003
Pale colour with a very large-bubbled head. Good smell, not too much going on, but definately not bad. Bland taste, once again, no complexities...but an all-around decent beer. Noticabley heavy bodied for a beer this light, but good to try at least once. Tasted on Tap at MacGregor's in Rochester, New York.

a very light belgain. good flavor but wasn't impressed by the color. i didn't think there was a fizzy yellow belian, but at least it was still a quality beer.

ConiseurofBeer (242) - Downingtown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2003
Nothing too special. Not too much complexity here. A little bland for it's style, but still drinkable.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 9, 2003
Pale golden, large quick-declining head. Aroma musty, yeasty, somewhat weak, little fruit; reminds me a bit of a German pils, actually. Very sweet an malty flavor, hints of pepper & alchol, more than I'd expect with this low ABV, very soft, some bitterness towards the end. Nothing really stands out.

brewboy (152) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 8, 2003
A few of these and you'll be speaking Belge. A succulent crisp flavour with light overtones of sweet fruit at the finish. Could easily drink these until I dropped. A real refresher. I'm now looking forward to sampling it's darker brother!

jazz88 (2525) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 6, 2003
Bottle. A medium to dark golden color with a foamy white head. A nice candy bubblegum flavor with a pleasant spice in the aroma and flavor.

Hansen (6196) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2003
Big head, golden colored. Coriander and other herbs in aroma, a bit spicy in flavor. Finish with a bitterness.

Aurelius (3890) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2003
Super clear honey-colored. Sweet, yeasty, and the ABV will sneak up on you. Good mouthfeel, but I needed to scour the sweetness with a decent Brit IPA. Good but not terribly remarkable. My non-afficianado business associate really dug this one, so I've got to agree with the commercial statement regarding its wide-ranging appeal.
