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."

TChrome (1418) - 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 (1041) - 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.

Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2004
It was somewhat more balanced than in the bottle, less sweet-bitter. Light yellow, good nose. The yeast is there and sticking in the retaining head. Orangy and cloves are for teas not beer

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 28, 2004
UPDATED: APR 1, 2005 I like this better than many, apparently. Pours with a frothy, white head, moderate-low carbonation; fruity, doughy aroma; tangy, fruity, lighty malty-sweet and somewhat dry finishing abbey ale, tastes a little like a German pils without the bitter hopping. Not huge on flavor or complexity, but quite drinkable and delicious, a session Belgian. Like the Brune alot better, though. Not sure why this gets such low ratings by many....oh, yea, it’s an Interbrew......

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2004
Sweet, fruity, bready aroma. Hazy light yellow/gold color with an extremely sticky, white head. Sweet cinnamon and spice flavor. Very slight banana and apple flavors also present. Very friendly beer.

pineypower (2509) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - APR 24, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2004 The beer pours out a very lite color with a lot of carbonation. The aroma is very fruity and sweet. It is very smoothe and goes down easy with a nice after taste. Not the best Belgian I’ve had, but not bad....I like Leffe Brown much better

BATLMULLET (127) - Highland, Indiana, USA - APR 20, 2004
Very light in color and highly carbonated. Great fruity-yeasty character. The carbonation blends nicely with the fruitiness to accentuate a subdued spiciness. Quite good.

canary dog (655) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - APR 17, 2004
A fluffy, fruity, wheat brew with a touch of spice/clove. A little bit more well-made than Hoegaarden.
