"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 íconnoisseurí beer that is easy to drink."

Nice, but not earthshaking. Clear golden, none of that Belgian haziness. Sweet and fruity, but not particularly complex. Massive head.

Had this one from tap. Light citrus and malts aroma. Golden colour with large bubbles. Vanilla and summer fruits aroma. Bit sweet, bit spicy. Nice bitterness in the finish. This beer is much better and fresher from tap than from the bottle I think.

An ok blonde, but nothing remarkable. A touch oversweet.

Fizzy. As someone said, nothing too special. But a nice high quality beer.

I liked this more than everyone else seemed to, but seeing as how I havenít had anything Belgian in a while, I guess thatís subjective. It was a nice sweet/perfumy beer, everything I expect from a Belgian blonde.

Hop aroma almost gone. Sweet malty aftertaste

I actually ordered this thinking this was rated fairly high on this site but I see now it isnít. I thought this was a pretty boring beer. Maybe I should go back and try the Chimay type beers again. This is dirty yellow in color. And it has that typical Belgian fruity fizzy flavor. (draft)

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2001
UPDATED: APR 28, 2003 Never really minded it. Fluffy white head, clear golden colour, nice lace, yeasty Belgian character, in both the nose and palate. Fairly simple, but with some nice yeasty almost doughy characters, nothing special, but pretty solid.

Okay. Nothing special. Canít quite describe it. I found it very sweet. Also noticed the taste of alcohol quite a bit. Not a very balanced beer. Iíve had worse.
