"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."

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2002
This is one of the most beautiful looking beers you can ever buy. Pour it in a tall glass and watch pearl string bubbles go slowly accelerate to it’s foamy destiny. It has a deep golden colouration with a thick white belgian head. Ester aromas typical of higher alcohol beers evolve from the glass. It is quite malty with hints of buscuit and nuts in the background and lightly hopped.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2002
Golden coloured, slightly milky. Fruity, yeasty sweet aroma and taste. Not as good as Leffe bruin.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2002
Deep golden colour with a nice head and decent lacing. Aroma and flavour of yeast, fruits (citrus) and some spices. A pleasant bitter finish, some alcohol present, and a very full body. All in all a decent abbey ale that is also the most accesible (and easy to drink) of the Leffe beers.

Hugerat (452) - somerville, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 26, 2002
Good beer, though rather mild and not nearly as spicy as many other Belgian ales.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2003 Great head and a nice golden color. Smooth tasting, easy on the palate.

skortila (4505) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2002
Nice one, for a quite commercial belgian ale. Quite sweet. Not impressive.

winkle (476) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 25, 2002
Big head, nice gold colour, yeasty nose,sweet candy body and finish. Not a bad effort for a macro.

bierkoning (10206) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2002
Slight hopbitterness, bit yeasty, some underlying maltiness. Herbal, hopbitter finish. Not bad, but not too much flavor.

Kathy (241) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2002
Deep, filtered gold color with a sweet caramel aroma (not too strong, but discernible). Very sweet flavor with tiny bubbles that make it seem like a caramel soda. It keeps its flavor, but it’s not really anything special, as far as I’m concerned.
