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."

I was expecting more. Leffe Blond Abbey Ale, not my style. I also bought it in a 12oz bottle, and it just seemed blah tasting. Nice aroma, very effervescent, pours beautifully, nice rich golden-orange color, but just too bland tasting. I must not be an Abby Ale lover, but Leffe has a very cool drinking chalice/glass.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - MAY 4, 2003
This beer has gone stale on me. It came in a 12 oz.bottle, and poured out a light yellow color. Straight slam into a pint glass only produced a slight head that quickly dissipated to small clumps of yeast for a head. Not much aroma here. Tasted like cardboard. It has gotten oxidized something fierce. Not the best tasting thing for a beer, especially a belgian ale. I won't be buying this again, that's for sure.

Quaffmeister (50) - Henlow, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2003
A golden beer with a loose white head that soon disperses. Distinct bubble gum aroma. Tastes of banana with a refreshing finish. A good summer BBQ beer, easily drunk for a 6.6.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2003
A very easy "beginner" beer in the Belgian style...not a lot to say about it.

redlem (1296) - Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2003
A burnt gold color with a medium white head. A pepper, fruit aroma. Sweet malt taste that has a somwhat spicy palate. Smooth, a good beer for the fall weather.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2007 Bottled. Nice color and decent lacing. Doughy, yet light body. Warming finish.

Probably, it is the less interesting product in the Leffe family. It is a good beer, nevertheless.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - APR 9, 2003
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 (4493) - 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.
