COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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."

Sweet flavor. Almost fruity, but not. Maybe not worth the expensive import money.

Strange Brew (157) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2002
Pale in colour with not much of a head, it’s deceptively easy to drink for a strong beer. Not one of the best Belgian ales, but OK.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2004 Quite uninteresting fruity aroma. Mild taste with vanilla notes. The palate is strange and rather unpleasant. Definately not one of the best abbey beers.

Nuffield (3636) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2002
Lots going on in the flavor, not necessarily predicted by its rather more average appearance (lager-like once the head is gone). Bitterness and yet a lingering sweetness. Alcoholic effervescence apparent, to an unfortunate degree. (on tap, Lowlander, Drury Lane, London)

radiomgb (2143) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2003 Golden colour, large fizzy head, fruity aroma. Not something I could drink often.

SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2002
one of my first forays into belgian beers, not as ’strangely’ yeasty as some I’ve had

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2002
Light aroma, some fruitiness, some malty notes. Golden body with a small, quickly diminishing head gives way to a relatively lightly flavored beer--semi-sweet, with hints of green apples and pears. A bit too much effervescence for my taste.

amx1970390 (480) - Southampton, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2002
Pours a light golden color with thick head even when cold. Aroma not to pronounced, light malt smell. Rather bland and uninspiring flavor. No tartness, no hops, no feeling on the tounge. This seems to be what I would call the Miller Light of Belgian Ales. Disappointed.

Nice refreshng beer, not as good as most Belgian Ales.
