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."

An excellent beer in all regards. The head seemed a little thin and quick to dissapear for me. It poured a light yellow color with only minimal carbonation. A decent fruit taste and aroma.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2005 (Bottled) Clear, pale amber color with a smallish, lasting head. Spicy, witbier-like aroma with also some hefeweizen-like bananaish fruitiness, plus some strawberry on top. Very fruity, yeasty, reasonably malty, sweetish and slightly acidic flavor. Medium-bodied, smooth and very drinkable, although quite carbonated and acidic palate. Alcohol is well hidden, but a bit warming. A quite pleasant and refreshing summer drink that joins witbier and hefeweizen into one bottle (with added sugar, though). I don’t quite understand the bottle’s recommendation of drinking this at 5-6C...well, maybe during summer. [Pre-rate Jan 30, 2004] Clear, light amber color, small head. Yeasty aroma with banana and strawberry (both also present in the flavor). Sweet, a bit sour flavor. A very enjoyable and refreshing, though maybe a bit too sweet blonde. Feels like a mixture of Belgian tripel and a British ale. Also much like Lammin sahti. Great summer drink on a terrace - luckily it’s widely available on tap. The bottle is very beautiful, too. (7-3-7-4-14=3.5)

This brew just went on sale @ $28/case. is interbrew trying to turn this into the next Stella? If so, beer drinkers nationwide should stand up and cheer. From the bottle you get a great creamy head that persists to the bottom of the glass, all the while leaving a magnificent brussels lace. The bouquet reminds me of flowers and nectar. Extremely quaffable - i'll probably need another case tomorrow.

Has a smooth taste with a big white frothy head. Easy to drink and leaves a good aftertaste.

If I had this before tasting some really fine examples of the style, I may have rated it higher. Small, but lasting, white head, well laced. Nice color. Flavor somewhat less spiced than I like in a Belgian, but easy to drink, with a medium mouth feel.

Dark golden color, with a creamy looking head. Nice Lacing. Taste is very rich, with a hint of a sharp bite, but more of a creamy feel. A slight hint of fruit, but not much. Cream is what I taste. From inital looks, it doesn't seem to have much body, but in taste it is full flavored, like water is not a big part of it. Yummy.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2004 Lovely deep blonde colour topped of with a nice white head, although smaller than expected. Also expected a fruity aroma, but it seemed to smell a bit like burnt toast with a hint of fruit. Taste feels much like an extension of the aroma with a short but pleasant aftertaste. Re-rate: this is a posers abbey. Filtered, thin on the palate, comparably.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2009 (Draught) Great tasting Belgian Ale! Nice hazy blond color with a thick, frothy white head.

Nice blond color with moderately sized white head. But I enjoy beers thicker, like my women.

raymow (813) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2003
Tastes like many other Belgian beers, but I liked this one more than most. It's not too strong and overpowering like some other Belgians that I've had. Nice aroma and color. I could drink this all night. A slightly lower than average ABV for a Belgian beer.
