"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."

If I had this before tasting some really fine examples of the style, I may have rated it higher. Small, but lasting, white head, well laced. Nice color. Flavor somewhat less spiced than I like in a Belgian, but easy to drink, with a medium mouth feel.

ppcpilot (21) - Port Allen, Louisiana, USA - OCT 9, 2003
Dark golden color, with a creamy looking head. Nice Lacing. Taste is very rich, with a hint of a sharp bite, but more of a creamy feel. A slight hint of fruit, but not much. Cream is what I taste. From inital looks, it doesn't seem to have much body, but in taste it is full flavored, like water is not a big part of it. Yummy.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2004 Lovely deep blonde colour topped of with a nice white head, although smaller than expected. Also expected a fruity aroma, but it seemed to smell a bit like burnt toast with a hint of fruit. Taste feels much like an extension of the aroma with a short but pleasant aftertaste. Re-rate: this is a posers abbey. Filtered, thin on the palate, comparably.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2009 (Draught) Great tasting Belgian Ale! Nice hazy blond color with a thick, frothy white head.

Nice blond color with moderately sized white head. But I enjoy beers thicker, like my women.

raymow (958) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2003
Tastes like many other Belgian beers, but I liked this one more than most. It's not too strong and overpowering like some other Belgians that I've had. Nice aroma and color. I could drink this all night. A slightly lower than average ABV for a Belgian beer.

Boutip (5025) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2003
Dark yellowish brew with a nice foamy head. I taste the usual belgium spice but still less present then I would have hope for. This beer is also less hearthy then I would have liked. I guess this is a good introduction to belgium brew but not up to the level of a great brew.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Bright yellow-gold with a foamy white head. Fruity aromas of sweet pale malts. I tried one that had a bit of skunkiness to it, but wasn't present in later tastings. Follows through with sweet malty flavors where spicy hop flavors give this enough bitterness to keep this in balance. Overall, pretty decent and delicious.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2004 Re-rate (19-Mar-04): Fruit and sweet malt in aroma with noticeable clove nose. Deep golden colour with thick, dense white head that recedes with good lacing. Nice malt flavour with a sweet finish and overtones of vanilla. Swwet aftertaste lingers. Creamy mouthfeel with medium-light body. A very drinkable beer. Bottle. Original rating (7-Sep-03): 5-1-6-2-12=2.6 Noticeable fruity aroma. Head somewhat weak. Buttery-bronze colour and very clear (it's a belgian ale, it shouldn't be clear??). Must be filtered and obviously not refermented in the bottle. Pleasant enough flavour with lots of fruit and mild spiciness. Malt and vanilla come through in the finish along with some late bitterness. Has a very carbonated mouthfeel apparent at the sides of the tongue which is incongruous with the lack of head but all in all has a moderate fullness in the mouth. Perhaps not exactly to style but a very drinkable beverage.
