"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."

Pours golden, rather clear with a inch of fuzzy white head. Aroma is of malt and spices. Taste is also spicy and malty sweet with a long finish that i can not identify. Little to none bitterness but the spicy taste makes up for that. Palate is medium/full bodied, slightly thick. Fizzy carbonation. I really enjoy this beer. It has a peculiar taste that i really like.

chinchill (2560) - South Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2015
11.2 oz bottle served in pint glass (from Feb. 2011 notes). Fresh bottle is dated best by May 14, 2012: more than a year away. No sediment in bottle. The pint glass could just barely hold this 11.2 oz beer and it’s considerable head; this from a restrained pour. The head dies back a bit quickly but has good retention and exceptional glass lacing. The enticing liquid itself is clear golden color that seems to glow. Substantial carbonation is evident. Taste and smell are yeasty, spicy (cloves + ?) and sweet. The flavor is less sweet than the aroma suggests, a good thing. This will certainly prove too sweet or too heavy in clove flavoring for many. This is the case for me, but I enjoyed the interplay of yeast, malts and spices, as well as the mouthfeel and some other aspects of this Belgian blonde. M - smooth but bubbly, with a slight creaminess on the tongue and a slight dryness in the finish.

A nice blonde Belgian. Cleaner than what I think of as a Belgian. Not too fruity. Refreshing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

trapped (1074) - New York City, TURKEY - MAR 31, 2015
Draught. Golden yellow with very small foamy beige head, yeast aroma, high carbonation, vanilla taste, full body, medium finish. Quite a typical Belgian ale, meaning good quality!

TedE (302) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2015
On tap at Brussels Hilton. Deep golden beer with thin but creamy white head. Nose is alcohol and malt. Smooth in the mouth with little carbonation. Finish is spicy, fruity, caramel. Spice aroma more apparent as it warms. Tremendous beer.

macio_men (67) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Aromat intensywny. Barwa złota, ale niezbyt intensywna. Bardzo obfita, gęsta piana. Mocno musujące. W smaku lekkie, słaba goryczka, bardzo słodkie. Ogólnie trochę się zawiodłem. Piwo sztucznie słodkie.

AGCostaNeves (26) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - MAR 25, 2015
With an intense and crystal-gold color. The foam is creamy and high white. Very good training and stay in the tulip. A beautiful presentation. It has a spicy aroma emerging certain spices, honey notes. It is noticed a certain fermented sweetness. The sample found the means initially sweet beer and a good bitter finish. The malt is present, as well as a touch of caramel. On the palate the body is medium showing up fuller than they really thought. A creamy and predominantly sweet and heavy drinking. A Belgian representative with his qualities.
