"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."

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle/draught from everywhere. Iíve reached the point where Iíll rate the beers Iíve had a thousand times. But I have to say, itís still a hassle. Forgive the short rate, but what can I say that no one else has said? Clear golden in colour with fluffy white head and huge carbon bubbles clinging for dear life to the sides of the glass. Yeasty aroma. Quite dull in taste, not the most complex beer. Yeasty with hints of vanilla and a muted spiciness. I respect this dear brew so little, I refuse to drink it unless it is an absolute emergency. Still better than most.

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - SEP 12, 2006
Poured a clear effervescent golden with a large fizzy/frothy white head. Aroma of sweet toffee, brown sugar, alcohol, cinnamon, and some light floral essences. Flavor is dominated mostly by dry toffee, with some light herbal notes, acidity, and a bit of floral spiciness. Rather subdued flavor. Body is fine but effervesces a bit too much in the mouth. Not sure if Iíd classify it as a connoisseur beer, as it is certainly proof that Belgiumís lower quality is still better than most other countries. However, itís certainly not connoisseur when compared to its contemporaries.

Absolutely beautiful amber pour, white persistent head. Looks like a beer should, said my friend sharing with me. Nice "beery" smell. First impression is malty sweetness, followed by hops burning through and sticking around for a good long while. Very nice.

emjay (30) - Markham, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2006
Bottle. Pours a very light golden color with a tiny head that leaves a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is earthy with notes of yeast and wheat. The taste is pretty much what is expected given the aroma, itís very similar. Nice and crisp beer and very easy to drink. Not very remarkable, but definitely not a beer that Iíd refuse to drink.

Jerre (3126) - Waregem, BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2006
Years ago i like this beer. Now is ít an industri beer product.Gold body with white head and some lacing. Flavor was a mix of the mild banana and some hop bitterness. Not a bad brew good beer belch on the finish. Not so good anymore. Flets.

WeeHeavySD (3377) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 30, 2006
Beer 01 Summer 2006 trip in Europe. Drank on 6/30/06 bottle purchased at corner store in Paris France. This is a low level poor belgian ale produced by one of belgiumís factories inbev. It tastes ok, but is severly lacking otherwise.

Sleepster (12) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2006
Bottle. At first I was pretty taken back by the aroma (better than the taste even). But as for the taste itself, its pretty good, a little strong but itís pretty smooth, just as the label indicates. Nice golden color as well. Damn, this is a pretty good beer.

brewgirlca (57) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2006
Bottle. Best before 06-2007. Pours a rocky white head that lasts. Clear deep gold color, geyser like rush of carbonation from center of snifter - perfect visual presentation. Rich fruity nose - pears-backed by light caramel malt complexity. Malty sweet flavour with hint of earthiness from Euro hops and the special yeast. Very gentle presentation for a big beer. Clean finish, crisp and yet soft. Imminently drinkable, wonderful in fact. A consistently excellent beer.

holdenn (2110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2006
12oz bottle: pours bright golden with a thick white head. Aromas are malt and a little yeasty. The flavors come through as very light and drinkable, medium bodied malty belgian spiced, and citrusy. It tasted more like a belgian as it warmed up. Iím surprised by the alcohol content but this would definitely make a good session beer.
