"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."

Crazy_Kiwi_13 (9) - Wanganui, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 16, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2014 Appearance: Light orange-yellow, two finger tight head. Aroma: Doughy yeast, cloves and banana, not particularly complex but strong. Palate: Medium. Taste: Strong flavours of doughy yeast and cloves, with hints of banana and other spices, tasty but not particularly interesting or complex. Finish: Yeast, and, cloves. Overall: A pleasant yet simple example of it’s type, not highly recommended, especially considering that the far superior La Trappe Blonde can be purchased in a four pack for considerably less than a four pack of this (at least here in New Zealand), but a decent enough beer as an introduction to the style (as it was for me).

La Leffe blonde se pare dans le verre d'une belle robe d'un blond cuivrée coiffée d'une mousse onctueuse et persistante. Elle développe une belle effervescence, modérée mais durable. Du verre s'échappe des arômes maltés puissants de céréales et de maïs ainsi que des senteurs de banane et de clou de girofle. En bouche, elle présente une rondeur maltée de caramel accompagnée de saveurs fruitées, et d'une pointe épicée associable à la levure. Une touche métallique est également perceptible et précède l'arrivée du houblon. Celui-ci est à son tour chassé par l'alcool qui prend de l'ampleur en fin de bouche.

Bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a frothy white head. Nose has banana, cloves and belgium yeast. Taste is light bodied- zesty belgium yeast and banana tones. Thin palate. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Une jolie robe jaune. La mousse ne tient pas très longtemps. Arômes florals, fruités et miel. Plutôt douce. Une bonne bière, à boire plutôt avec du sucré pendant un repas.

Kleurplaatje (46) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle. Clear orange colored beer with a frothy white head that caves in pretty quick. Yeasty aroma. Clear malts also, bit of fruits as well. Some spices far away. Not astonishing, yet not unpleasant also. Taste is moderately sweet with a nice malty (caramel, sugar) and yeasty kick. Clear banana and spices (cloves), some fruits, slight alcoholic kick and a soft bitter, dryish and spicy finish... Some citrus as well. Very smooth and refreshing. Nice. Medium bodied, nice creamy mouthfeel (bit sticky on the lips), and quite a lively carbonation. Nice brew in general. Easy drinkable and decently tasty ale. Not that complex and certainly not the most outstanding beer ever made, but just a plain good beer within its kind. Never a bad choice actually.

Barnoloid (259) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Leffe’s blonde ale is a well known classic. Pours with a large foamy head. Yeast and bread on the nose, with banana, bubblegum and clove right across the palate.

It poured a light blonde color with a white head. The aroma was of grainy hops. The taste was similar with a smooth but watery aftertaste.

Lovely belgian abbey beer aroma. Light head. Sweet tripel (?), lively carbonation. Very good value for an imported belgian beer in australia.
