"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 íconnoisseurí beer that is easy to drink."

This yellow-colored ale poured with a large, long-lasting fluffy head. The flavor is malty and spicy, with a very carbonated mouthfeel. Drinkable, but not remarkable.

I thought this beer was very good...it tasted a bit like a tripel, but was extremely drinkable. It was spicy and light, but very good. Color is a dark amber with an abundant head. Aroma is spices and light alcohol esters. Taste is spicy (clove and coriander?) and a big boldness reminiscent of a Belgian tripel, and this beer had the fairly big mouthfeel of a tripel. Yet, this beer was very drinkable.

Leffe is delicious. Itís not as good as Chimay, but itís got a lot of flavor and itís worth savoring from an open wine glass or a Belgiam Ale glass, if you have one.

markveerman (14) - Harrisonburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 5, 2007
LIght golden color with exceptional clarity. Nose has that yeasty and floral smell that is indicative of a Belgian. Very smooth and creamy with a long finish. Senses are a bit dulled from the 9% Chimay Bleue I just consumed, but this is a great beer.

Beautiful golden color and creamy head. Smooth to drink with floral bouquet. Thoroughly enjoyable given itís ubiquity and price.

pjk33 (390) - Sligo - Curllsville Heights, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Bottle. Pours a golden color with a nice big fluffy creamy head that laces all the way to the end of the quaff. Nose is actually a little odd. Not nearly as nice as the Saxo brew that I just enjoyed, but I hope the flavor comes close to that one.... Nope, it doesnít, but itís not terrible. Sweetness and a bit of bubble gum and spice come through but the palate is a little thin and the carb a little too large... the bubbles arenít champagne like,as a good Belgian always has. Interesting flavor, although I think it is rushed a bit. Still OK though, and better than a lot of beers out there.

Transparent golden with decent white head. Aroma is astringent cleaner with some yeasty bread and residuel sugars mixed in. Flavor very muddled. Residuel sugar, harsh dusty malt and alcohol for a finish. Mouthfeel rather thin. Below average overall.

Pours sparkling medium yellow with a rocky white head. Aroma is moderatly malty; cookies, Lightly yeasty; leather and soap. Flavor is moderatly sweet and lightly bitter, well balanced nice taste. medium bodied, creamy, softly carbonated, a bit metallic in finish.

Full of flavour, syrupy palate, rich amber colour, a very enjoyable beer. Money well spent!

Pale color with a thick white head, minimal lacing. Yeasty aroma of bananas. Sour palate, that is a bit tart. As it warms, has a nice grainy body. Similar to a hefeweizen in style, with more hops and diversity. I liked it.
