"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."

Nice Abbey beer that is lower in alcohol than you would expect. Great tasting for a non bottle conditioned beer. Tried on tap in France and in bottle in NZ, both very similar to the taste.

One of the better ales I’ve had, although I’ve only experienced it on tap in Belgium. Very fizzy and an aftertaste that reminded me of wild lavender - a litte too flavored for my tastes but interesting nonetheless...

Aroma of hops & corriander, a bit darker than most blondes. The lightish flavour is nice enough. It’s far from the best Belgian but goes down easily.

Once I was out with some friends (4 days). We played poker. We drunk Leffe. There was no triple anymore, so we drunk a full house. (2 blonds and three brunes)

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 (3666) - 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)
