COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg and bottle: Filtered.
Uses Vieux Temps yeast.
"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."

flemdawg (540) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - FEB 10, 2004
Straw yellow in color, decent head of small bubbles. Great lacing and tons of bubbles coming up from the bottle. Looked super D duper. Sweet aroma and yeasts. The taste was like sugar cooked onto a slightly raw piece of fresh bread. As it warmed, bits of alcohol came out. Solid.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - FEB 10, 2004
bottled and on tap: clear golden, with fluffy off white head. typical belgian yeast smell, suttle. slight sweetness and peppery notes. higher alcohol content hidden. crisp and clean and easy to drink. good all around beer.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - FEB 10, 2004
A deep gold color, very clear with a small white head. A sweet malt scent with toast and yeast tones. Some spice in the nose but not to the extent of the other Leffe offerings. Candi sugar and yeasty flavors, not the spicey fruitiness expected from the style. A bit acidic but a nice feel. A decent brew but not up there with the top notch Belgian Ale's IMHO.

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Beer pours (in flute glass) a medium golden colored liquid with a generous amount of white, cottony head. Aroma is of straw, grass, vegetal. Flavor is of strong straw, grass. Sampled at 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Crystal clear light amber with a medium diminishing white head. Nice yeasty aroma of pepper, banana, clove, citrus and dough. Medium light watery body with lively carbonation. Smooth and refreshing. Somewhat musty flavor of cinnamon, clove, pepper, other spices, some citrus, and some smaller bread/grain notes. A good beer.

jutuahol (189) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - FEB 7, 2004
Dark golden, medium head. Aroma is yeasty, fruity, notes of alcohol, a bit dry, sweet, notes of banana and strawberry. Medium to full body, smooth. Flavor is moderately yeasty, fruity, a bit dry, malty, sweet and sour, notes of banana. Dry and sour, long finish. Very nice and refreshing beer.

Choos (661) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - FEB 4, 2004
Gentle yeasty bread aroma with some just noticeable citrus. Ok looking gold colour with a head that didn't last long. Flavour starts off malty sweet with passable side notes of banana & yeast(bottle needs to have been kept well to retain these) but looses any character by the end. Quite good drinking not too thin.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 4, 2004
Bottle pours a crystal clear gold amber with a monster head and much Belgian lace; this beer looks perfect. The aroma is of fresh bread, but mild. The flavor is sweet, slightly spicy, bread like, and just overall mild and rounded with nothing really sharp or pronounced with a decent body. Overall, this is refreshing, mild, and an easy drinking Belgian. However, it lacks in character.

abansal (3) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 4, 2004 does not count
Has a very smooth and distinct sweet flavor. It leaves a nice aftertaste. Also good with food as does not give you a heavy feeling.
