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 ’connoisseur’ beer that is easy to drink."

This beer is interesting. Not bitter, slightly yeasty. I get an overpowering bubblegum flavor, however, that detracts from the other elements of this brew.

Gold in color with a head of large bubbles that is fading fast. Aroma of coriander. Nice coriander flavor. I love coriander. Not much of a finish though. Overly carbonated.

larsniclas (5728) - Billdal, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2003
Fresh and yeasty aroma. Champagne-like palate. Some yeast and sweetness in the flavour, though a bit less than exoected.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 2, 2003
Sweet golden blond beer with a fluffy head that faded quickly. Smell is banana, candy sugar and coriander. Taste is banana, light fruit ( peaches and apricots) clove, coriander and pepper. Rather light for a Belgian ale, but not bad, and overall a tasty brew.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2008 This was good. I can taste that its a quality brew. 6/3/4/4/12.

RERATE: (consumed 12/27/06, 12oz Bottle). Golden pour with some depth. Very minimal head of soapy white film. Aroma is mild sweetness. Flavor is sweet, slightly alcoholic as it warms. There really isn’t much too this beer. The yeast flavor lets you know its Belgian, but their really isn’t much else. 5/3/5/3/11

12oz bottle from the same six-pack as the 12/27/06 rating. About one year old. The color and presentation of this beer is pretty impressive. The aroma is sweet, yeasty and with definite alcohol presence - although not unwelcome. The flavor is sweet, dusty yeast and some spiciness that is mild but obvious. Easy to drink. 6/4/6/4/16

2006 Bottle. Approximately 2 years old. Pours a vivid gold color wit a big fluffy white head of tight creamy bubbles. The aroma is a spritzy lemon/orange. Teh flavor is smooth and refreshing. Citrus but with a sweet malty finish. I think I prefer this beer with age, which is counter to my tastes lately. 7/5/7/4/16

baobubba (455) - Starkville, Mississippi, USA - JUL 26, 2003
Dark golden with a white cottonball head, ton of lace. Warm and very spicy yet smooth aroma, touches of clove, cinnamon, banana, cucumber and sticky malts. Aromas leave one by one as the beer moves over the tongue to the back of my mouth finishing qutie clean. Not the most interesting brew, but quite good for the price.

rlgk (11442) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2003 Golden with a fluffy head. Aroma of banana and something more that icant define. Maybe something spicy... Tastes too much of alcohol, this is not my kind of beer...

slinkymello (137) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2003
I really dug this beer... had it in Bruges with a spectacular salmon dish served by a downright bastard of a person... which had no effect on my beer tasting experience obviously; very mellow with the trademark belgian spiciness... sweet banana and slight coriander nose with a spicy sweet bread flavor with a gorgeous dry finish. subtle... yet very delicious. I really loved this beer... which is very strange

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2005 Luminous blonde with a generous white head, well-laced. Malty cereals aroma. Sweet from the beginning, it rapidly gets almost tart. Alcohol is noticeable as well as lots of cloves.
