COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg and bottle: Filtered.
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."

I’m usually not one for Belgian beers and if I do have one I usually have to put a lemon in it. However, one look at this Abbey Ale rich head breathing in your challis and you’ll know why it has such a high rating. Then as if the aroma was enough of a treat the taste is just perfect. You will think to yourself, "Self, this is exactly the beer I needed."

Clear amber with a large, off-white head. Bright yeast, lemon aroma. Taste is sweet, clove, yeast, citrus. Tingly carbonation. Lively.

Surprised at sceptical reviews on here Head rapidly disappears, and no lacing, while aroma mostly yeast But. Loving the massive carbonisation and clove majesty. It’s a very good 75cl of Saturday joy

11.2 oz bottle. Golden in color with a high white head. Some lacing. Sweet, bready aroma, overripe fruit. Tastes of banana, cloves, and apricots. Spicy and crisp.

LasseVPedersen (243) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle, 75cl. Pours golden colour with an off-white head. Highly carbonated, fizzy in the glass. Floral, fruity head with malt, pear, plums, honey, yeast, wheat, minimal hobs. Taste is sweet malt and honey, little yeast and sugary. Richly carbonated, perhaps too much, as it tends too hide the flavours and after-taste. Sticky texture, medium body. Low, if any bitterness. Very easy drinkable, but also lacks some character.

This beer is a Clove Bomb. I understand that is all part of the Belgian character, but, for me, it was so overwhelming I could not pick out much of the other characteristics. From a blind tasting exam, I would have said it was homebrew or an American interpretation of a Belgian Blonde...

MSBrindbergs (334) - Solna, SWEDEN - SEP 15, 2014
Flaska från Crille, tackar! Klar gyllengul vätska med ett mastigt vitt skum. Doftar kraftigt av jästen och honungssötma. Söt smak med med en viss sträv bitterhet. Inte min stil, men funkar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

True to its style this blonde beer has a light golden hue that pours well with a solid but not sturdy head. At first taste your palate enjoys a bit of bitterness but that quickly gives way to an overwhelming sweetness that is defined by tastes of brown sugar, roasted cashews, and syrups. The sweetness lingers on the tongue but balances nicely over time. Overall an enjoyable well executed blonde beer, however it is a bit too sweet for my tastes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fantastica miscela di sapori. Colore ambrato. Gusto intenso. Amara quanto basta. Retrogusto durevole e davvero gradevole.

Als Belg ben ik altijd een beetje beschaamd voor bieren als deze. Plat commercieel biertje, volgegooid met een of andere goedkope suiker om toch maar zo snel en zoveel mogelijk te kunnen verkopen. Zelden zo’n flets bier gedronken als deze. Met een Leffe doe je mij geen plezier.

Tap. Clearish amber. Decent lacing. Yeasty, candi nose. Tastes of candi sugar, clove, yeasty. Solid... but drat, tricked into an InBev beer!
