"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."

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2003
Nicely golden with good carbonation. Nice creamy head. Smell of herbs, spices, banan and yeast. Lies smooth in mouth with it's creamyness and drinkability. Herbs, yeast, banana with a slightly bready ending. A good start beer for beginners who is interested in Belgo's. It's too simple for my tastebuds, though

Frank (2729) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2010 Bright yellow golden, diminishing head, no lace. Estery nose--mostly banana with hints of earth and cloves. Appropriately (slightly) sticky mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Very slightly tart. Definitely sweet flavor--like the aroma, mostly banana and clove. Nice.

very smooth and creamy beer, popular in France. A bit too much spice overpowers the natural flavors, but otherwise a good belgian ale.

madsberg (10111) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2003
Bottled: Golden coloured. White medium lasting head. Aroma is yeasty, malty and light spiced. Flavour is yeasty and has some spices present. Alcahol is surprisingly notable. Has a clean and dry finish. This might be good as a introduction to belgian ales.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2004 Relatively bland for a Belgian, but still not bad. Seemed to be missing that "bigness" that I've come to enjoy in a Belgian as far as flavor and body are concerned.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 23, 2003
From tap, golden yellow color. A bit of malt and hops in aroma, sweet candy sugar and a little spicy flavor. Medium to full body for a blond, I found this pretty enjoyable.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 20, 2003
Deep gold color. Small head. Aroma is malty and slightly sweet. A medium bodied Belgian Ale. Malts are sweet and fruity. Hops are a touch spicy. Light and refreshing. Kind of mild for an Abbey Ale. Drinkable, but nothing special. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Simply beautiful.This beer wins the gold for subtelty. Pour vigorously and you will be rewarded with a light fluffy head lying on a pool of blonde heaven. The nose of hops and possibly oranges? Flavours abound but not one dominates the other. The beer is amazingly well rounded with a body that allows you to drink more than one. A great beer!
