"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."

Brian (145) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2002
Nice and smooth, but lacking in bite (taste that is, not ABV--the 6.6.% is well hidden). A Belgian Ale for those starting out on Belgian ales (it helped me) but not one of the more complex members of the club.

Like its brown countpart it pours with a great "stirofoam" head. Has a golden colour. However it is not as complex in taste as the brown malt and yeast are evident and the overall finsh is quite sweet.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - FEB 3, 2003
Pale yellow colour, with a good, persistent head. Lightly fruity and malty taste, with a sweet aftertaste. Very refreshing!

Probably, it is the less interesting product in the Leffe family. It is a good beer, nevertheless.

I was expecting more. Leffe Blond Abbey Ale, not my style. I also bought it in a 12oz bottle, and it just seemed blah tasting. Nice aroma, very effervescent, pours beautifully, nice rich golden-orange color, but just too bland tasting. I must not be an Abby Ale lover, but Leffe has a very cool drinking chalice/glass.

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.

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.

desurfer (1272) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2004
Clear gold body, big white head. Sweet aroma of malt and citrus fruit, maybe some banana. Flavor is on the yeasty side with little bitterness. It reminds me of a weak Tripel. Not bad.

Choos (706) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - FEB 4, 2004
Gentle yeasty bread aroma with some just noticeable citrus. Ok looking gold colour with a head that didn't last long. Flavour starts off malty sweet with passable side notes of banana & yeast(bottle needs to have been kept well to retain these) but looses any character by the end. Quite good drinking not too thin.
