"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."

Belgian wheat aroma. Crystal clear gold body with a huge white to off-white head. Nice Belgian wheat flavor. Tasty and well done. Some sweetness. This is not an amazing beer but it has no flaws and is enjoyable.

Nothing out of the ordinary, but this is the closest thing my corner store has to the good Belgian stuff. Its sweet smell is nicer than what it leaves on your tastebuds, which is nothing to write home about.

This is a good beer, especially considering its price and availability. It tastes of wood and honey, with a hint of anise in the finish which lends a little bit of spice to this beer. Overall, it’s a little sweet for a Belgian blonde, but it’s well worth trying. This is a beer you can drink a lot of, and the 6.6% alcohol content makes it worth your while.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2005
Somewhat weak but pleasant cardamom-clove aroma like a cheaper German wheat beer. This is a brew in a decent price range despite its shortcomings. Pours a thick head with large bubbles and spotted lacing; has a healthy golden color. Seems too sweet compared with most Belgian blonds (or clones) perhaps because of lower carbonation. The finish has the same cheap corn syrupiness yet with some more complex fruit blended in. This is not the best Belgian blonde, but it’s still an ok beer especially if you want to get a 6-pack and feel the buzz.

frankenkitty (1972) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2005
UPDATED: APR 5, 2005 Dark amber color with an ivory-white head that dollops, center-stage. Aromas of liqueured bananas and hops. Taste of honey.

beastdog75 (363) - Brick, New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2005
A decent Belgian pale ale. A bit on the sweet side, and slightly more watery and less bold than I was expecting. The fruity flavor is quite "perfumey" in my opinion, has some dryness in the finish. Not too complex, but drinkable.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2005
Bottled. Aroma is yeasty, caramelly, fruity with some hints of cheese. Tastes fruity, malty with notes of citric and yeasty. Some spiciness, also. A very decent beer.

Light Golden color. Looks really pretty in the glass with a heavy white head. Smells of clove with a light sweet lingering flavor.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JAN 21, 2005
(on bottle, grand reserve) To me this is aclasic, one f the first belgians I had. (Besides that brownhaired chick, but I guess ya´ll heard that one before) Bog one the banana/yeast aromas. Full, almost creamy mouth feel, bt stilll very easy and drinkable. The hign carbonation, covers the sweetness well.
