COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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."

Poured into a chalice glass, this beer showed a large white head and a beautiful orange color. The aroma was floral with a heavy yeast overtone, as with most Belgian ales. The taste is very smooth, with a medium sweetness. Full bodied, creamy, with an almost sticky mouth feel. Nice, long finish. I have a love-hate relationship with Belgian ales. I often love them at first taste, but eventually find them cloying. Also, I also do not care for the overpowering taste of the yeast used in Belgian ales. But they are very smooth, and if the sugar and yeast could be toned down, they would be among my favorites. FYI - for those who are not aware, Leffe is not a Trappist ale, nor is it brewed by an abbey. It is brewed by Stella Artois under license of the Leffe Abbey.

Subtle pine, hops and malt aromas. Pours honey-gold and clear with a slightly rocky white head. Not overpowering complex tastes of slight sour, next sweet malty, light long sour finish. Lively carbonation. A drinkable Belgian.

Paladar marcante, mas com retrogosto muito suave. Paladar de cereais que nao cevada. Colar que não permanece. Boa cerva, mas nada de excepcional.

The classic one. In most french bars you got the choice between this or heineken. In bottle tends to make much foam. Cloying swetness and yeast flavours. I used to regard this has a good option but times are changing

Travlr (14669) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 15, 2015
During one of my many trips to Belgium, I had the privilege of escorting a young couple to places like De Dolle, Alvinne and Struise. After all those, we stopped at a beerside bar in Gent (you know the one) and the young lady ordered this, which we all tried. Her opinion, unsolicited, was that it tasted lifeless and dull after all the other fine beers we had, and I must heartily agree - light, watery, subtle in both flavor and aroma.. However, I was pleasantly surprised to read in the description that this is an "abbey beer," so on my next trip to Belgium I must look for the Leffe Abbey.

Poured from bottle, clear gold with high creamy head. Aroma with notes of banana, yeast, some bread and herbs. Taste is full and semi dry, with an underlying sweetness. Lots of CO2 carry notes of cereal, banana, earth and herbs. Nice companion!
