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."

Cascade hops overly prominent, but still drinkable.

An origianl and complex flavour. One of my favourites beer.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2002
Great yeast smell. Pretty, deep golden colour, smallish head. Strong bite at first, bitter, bread like, complex. Nice finnish, complex. Always enjoyable.

Just had a Blond in the park here in St. Paul (yes, I mean a Leffe Blond!) This is one of my favorite picnic beers, very drinkable. The beautiful golden color is let down a bit by the almost sour note in the beginning which seems to become, as another reviewer mentioned, rather ’corny.’ However, with good bread, salami and cheese, a very good slumming Belgian.

Skred (107) - Houma, Louisiana, USA - APR 9, 2002
Clear, orange tinted golden color, moderate head that dissipates quickly. Aroma has sour and clove notes that make me think of a wheat beer. Flavor is better, retaining the clove and adding a touch of orange, again reminding me of a wheat. However, the finish brings back the sour along with unexpected bitterness. Others have mentioned this beer being out of balance, and I agree with that. A little better balance could make this better than marginally above average, as many of the components are very nice and interesting.

A deceiving belgian. Tastes like wet cereals with some kind of a corn finish.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 3, 2002
Gold in color, generous white fluffy head, nice lace and the nose reaks of malt. Sweet, thin, lightly carbonated, slightly dry, low carbonation. Overly light and to sweet for me, drinkable, but not something I’d drink but once in a ’Blue Moon’.

unixweb (237) - Sherman, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2002
Huge head and a pretty golden/amber/orangey color are the first things I noticed when I poured it into my glass. The aroma is sweet, a little on the vanilla side, and very pleasant. The taste is reminiscent of other Belgian or Belgian-style ales, particularly those from Unibroue. The finish is a bit harsh, though, especially after the sweet start and middle. It isn’t bitter, really, just a little unbalanced. Seemed to be more alcohol in here than 6.6 percent, too. Not a bad Belgian, but certainly not my favorite.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 28, 2002
It pours a golden color with a huge rocky head. Doesn’t have anything going for it in the taste department besides. While a clear step over most mass-produced beers, this is the worst Belgian ale that I have had.
