"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."

A co-worker of mine found a bottle of this in his basement from his trip to Europe in the mid-90's. The date on the bottle said 12/97, so this has aged in his dark basement along with a small bottle of hoegaarden white for about 6-7 years. He was willing to trade me these beers for a bottle of my homebrew. I wasn't sure who got the better deal until I tried it. Suprisingly, this beer was still intact. It poored amber colored with a little head that quickly disappeared. The lacing on the glass was significant and the aroma was of licorice and pepper. The medium-bodied mouthfeel led to a taste that was predominantly licorice with a fruity, tingly-sweet finish. I have never tasted a fresh bottle of this beer, but when I do I will re-rate. It was just interesting to try an aged belgain.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - FEB 18, 2003
This brew has a wheatish nose of bubblegum, banana, and perfume. Pours from the bottle a sparkling perfect shade of amber. The huge white creamy head is mostly lasting with very good lacing. The flavor starts sweet with a sour acidic bite in the middle. The finish is spicy and warm. The medium creamy body is lively and finishes alcoholic. Very pleasing.

Aubrey (3433) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2003
Clear and deep golden; nice and lasting lace patterns. Yeasty-fruity-fresh nose. Thickish, enjoyable mouthfeel. Light and doughy malts. Nice and aromatic hops - flowery and light. Dryish finish. Overall, a little on the sweet side, in my opinion, but still easy to drink and pleasant.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - FEB 12, 2003
This one pours a clear golden color with a big, rocky white head that lingers. It has a musty, somewhat lagerish aroma with some spices and yeast apparent. Medium bodied and very smooth, it has a very malty flavor with a slightly fruity, dry, and grassy finish. This beer makes me think of what a Belgian brewed German style lager would taste like. Very good and quite drinkable.

CEZ (397) - Milano, ITALY - FEB 10, 2003
A Belgian Pale Ale for the masses. Medium-sized head, light golden colour. Malty flavor and aroma. Fresh and easy to drink like a pilsner (but mind the alcohol!), with a full, smooth, firm taste. May not be the most complex or rich ale around, but I really love this one. It's also not too difficult to find here in Milan, which is definitely a good thing when it comes to belgian beers.

mikeben (355) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2007 Creamy and the sweetest blonde I have had. High quality, a slight aftertaste is its only drawback. Great

Easy to drink, little bit sweet. All in all a solid easy to drink belgian ale.

Pale yellow colour, with a good, persistent head. Lightly fruity and malty taste, with a sweet aftertaste. Very refreshing!
