"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."

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.

Nice foamy head, full flavor with a hint of cinnamon. Its light brown in color and leaves a pleasant after taste.

Tranquillity (1721) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2006
Bottle at bierhuis rotterdam, helsinki. Brings back memories of my Amsterdam/Vlissingen trip... The belgian alternative to Koff, I suppose. Aroma with fruit, berries. Very light brown colour. Very foamy palate, taste of cloves, finishes with raisins. Nice, in a good way.

alexanderj (3503) - Branson, Missouri, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Bottle. Poured into Leffe chalice. Golden color, hint of auburn. Minimal white head. Strong yeast and clove aroma; also wheat and banana. Sweet taste with hint of spice. Slightly bitter end. Easily drinkable, alchohol not noticeable. Big fan of most Belgian ales; this slightly above average.

berkshirejohn (5740) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2006
Bottle: bready aroma; golden colour with rapidly fading white head, lightly carbonation;well balanced sweet and bitter taste, which prickles in the mouth. Pleasantly bitter aftertaste.

mjg74 (2950) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 28, 2006
Bottle, Liquid Solutions. Pours a nice solid golden color. Strong yeast aroma with a hint of spice and grain. Some strong banana notes as well. Smooth slightly sweet flavor of yeast and grain. Slightyl fruity. Bitter finish. Maybe even a hint of alcohol.

hepburn82 (143) - SCOTLAND - SEP 27, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2006 Bottled. Pours somewhere between gold and copper with minimal head. Big cream and banana nose (milkshake!!). Flavour is tree fruit (predominantly pear) and more NaNa. Finish is a tad disappointing with less depth and longevity for a beer of such initial complexity. Very sweet but nice bitterness to compensate. I love strong ales and banana tasting wheats so it ticks the boxes for me.........
