COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

"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."

Probably the worst belgian beer Iíve had, besides Stella. Thatís not saying itís bad, because most belgians seem to be above average. I guess this is only slightly above average. Nicely malty, with a touch of sour hoppiness in the background. Not much fruitiness, considering, and pretty unmemorable.

Light, frothy head. Looks like carbonated apple juice. Sweet/sour smell... like apple juice, but with a hint of malt. Yeasty taste... a bit sweet, not much else, a little bitterness hidden behind it. Easy drinking but not a repeat. The alcohol is very well hidden - not detectable at all.

Much prefer the Leffe Brune but this is a nice alternative to the North American standard.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2003 bright color, it is -as mentioned in the commercial description- easy to drink. pleasant flavour <P> rerate: looks like coloured water, intense sweet aroma, no bad flavour, but not "super" as some describe it

Excellent belgian. right amount of spices and flavors. It started out spicey but not over powering and moved into a mixture of banana and strawberry. As the bottles contents dwindled it took on the characteristics of a honey ale. the final gulp was bitter. For me its perfectly balanced and totally drinkable. Had it with some smoked cheddar while watching íthe three amigosí....yes...i know i suck.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2003 i had to rerate this one. without trying to, i had this a few times in belgium and liked it more each time. i started to choose it over duvel in pubs with a very limited range. looks good, manages to be quite sweet but not too sticky

Easy to drink and very common in Belgium. Not my favorite but I would usually throw into a night of drinking.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2002
Looks and aroma are similar to previous rating. This time I got a touch more floral nectar sweetness in the aroma and flavour. Alcohol also more evident this time. Pleasant drinking but relatively characterless for a Belgian Ale.
Second Rating: 15 August 2002 3.1 Huge rocky island head over an amber-orange clear colour and some nice lace. Mild fruity hops, malt and cheesy yeast aroma. Medium body, Well balanced light bitter-sweet start, sweeter middle and finish.
First Rated 14/6/2002: Doel Holland, 3.4

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 Easy to drink is right. Kind of like a starter Belgian Ale. Rich head. Great golden colour. Very sweet without being overpowering.
