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."

Ducati (37) - Windsor, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2002
Interesting subtle black pepper like aroma in the nose, a hint of clove phenolics, some cheesy hops and alcohol (all not overpowering or dominate). Sweet, both malt & corn, more cheesy hop character. Low bitternes, medium body. Mostly a boring beer, although because it is made in Belgium many Americans will find it outstanding, strange phenomenon.

A solid Belgian ale, goes down smoothly after a hearty meal. Really sweet aroma, though the finish is slightly disappointing.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2002
Prominent balanced aroma, familiar ale mouthfeel, light maltiness, nice overall; though there is an odd musty note running through the finish, I have noticed this on other Belgian beers too. I’ll just have to rack up a few more to get used to it.

Did this baby a while ago, before being a member of the Great, fabulous, magnificent, awesome, etc, etc Rate Beer site... So we like this one. Everyone knows the qualities. So advice is, just get one and drink it. Then get another...

Beautiful floral nose, honeyish orange with hints of wholemeal bread. Cloying light finish. Low ether but warming.

Caton (160) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2002
Nice yeasty notes with sweet citrus and vanillan flavours. It had a creamy head and a full texture. The only problem it finished unbalanced. Much nicer on tap than out of the bottle.

Sigmund (5307) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 30, 2002
I guess Belgian blonds are not my favourite style, the yeast becomes too dominant in both aroma and flavour, not least in this one. Of course it’s better than any macro swill, but give me a darker beer, please!

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.
