3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

A very easy "beginner" beer in the Belgian style...not a lot to say about it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
