"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."

Draft on the patio of a great little cafe in Villefranche, in the south of France. I was pleasantly surprised to find this nice Belgian ale on draft here. Blond color, slightly hazy with a creamy white head. Aroma is fruity, yeasty with a bit of spice. Flavor is nice, sweet and spicey with a refreshing bitter finish. Medium body and good carbonation.

Pours an amber body with a small white head. Aroma is fruity and spicy with some candy sugar, malt, and dark fruit coming through.Taste is sweet as well. More candy sugar, some yeast, sweented malt, dark fruits, and spices galore. Light hops towards the end. A flowery hint as well. Mouthfeel seems dominated by the carbonation and spice. Finish is spicy-sweet. Decent finish, indeed. Good beer considering it’s "macro" status.

vanvenlo (1313) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2004
12 June 2004 - Light simplistic fruit with yeasty malt aroma. Low head retention, low suds and golden clear. Flavour starts sweet and has a light hop complexity, with slight metallic taste. Palate has a dry, crisp bitterness.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2004
Bottle: Pours a rich gold with a large head that lasts and laces very well. Aroma of Sussex Pond for those that know what it is. Buttery lemon and cloves, some yeast and cinnamon notes. Flavour is very similar, creamy with stewed autumnal fruits. Good bitterness that lingers perhaps a little too much. Very nice.

Yeasty lemon aroma with cloves. Yeast, cloves, lemon flavor. Nice bitter, clean finish

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Clear golden body topped by a foamy white head. The aroma is malty and spicy, neither outstandingly good nor bad. The flavor is spicy and yeasty, with a lingering fruitiness. Palate is dry with an alcoholic finish. Entirely forgettable.

I love blond ales and this one is a pretty good average blond. This goes very well with food. Nice balance of flavors, sweet, tangy and slightly bitter, dry finish that lingers in the mouth. Very easy to drink and refreshing. Good for a macro.
