BOBANDDOUG (61) - Belleville, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2008
Poured from bottle, one of the most amazing, clear, dark golden beers I have poured in a long time. the smell of cloves totally dominated, with a citrus backround. Flovor was also dominated by cloves, with a back of bannana, and citrus. Almost "too" much of a dominant clove taste. Finishes a little bitter. Good beer, not a seesion beer, but, a change of pace for me.

A very good, but not great beer. Huge head and very fresh inviting aroma. Banana dominates and this yeast and ester profile is great and refreshing, but during the consumption of the bottle you note that it isnt well balanced. Again, here in Panama today, but no expectations that it will be next month.

Heres an accurate zinger... this blond gives alot of head! But seriously, blonde color with a big frothy white head. Smells like bananas and carries over to the taste which is a delicious malty banana flavor. This is pretty good.

On tap at Belgian Beer Cafe. Probably my favourite in the Leffe range, although still a tad plain. Bit of citrus with a creamy bubblegum flavour.

Got this one at Mahars. Not really a fan of blonds, but I am of Belgium so here goes. Smooth feel in the mouth, nice carbonation. Light to medium body, lighter fruits, citrusy. Nice beer...for a blond.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2008 RE-RATE: Bottle (330ml). Poured orangey bronze with a large, frothy, off-white head which was average lasting. A spicy aroma consisting of coriander, white pepper and cloves with yeasty malts, orange zest and some pears to back it all up. Flavor was of bready malts with crisp apples, lemon zest, white pepper, coriander and some cinnamon. Medium bodied with medium carbonation, a dry/spicy mouthfeel and a good finish.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2012 Had to rerate this because my tastes have changed and I have grown to enjoy sweeter Belgian beers so much more. New rating Nov 2012 ~Strong yeasty clove and banana aroma, some medicinal qualities. Enjoyable though ~Pours clear golden color with big lasting white fluffy head that lasts ~Lots of yeast phenolics in flavor, Clove spice, banana and slight vanilla. ~med bodied, med CO2, lasting yeasty clove finish. ~Enjoyable Belgian Blond. Glad I had the chance to try this one again. I never would have purchased it based off my old ratings. Now I might buy this in the future. Original rating Jan 25th 2008 Score 2.4 ~Fluffy white head. Clear golden colour. ~Sweet spice aroma. Smells like its been sitting in the bottle awhile. ~Sweet taste. A little too sweet for my taste. ~Palate is sticky and seems thick. ~Dont really care too much for this beer. Its too sweet.Wont purchase again, but wont turn down if offered either.

Pours a light blonde (suprise!) with pleasing sweet aromas....Taste of apricots, yeast...after a few a little too sweet, not enough hops. Dry aftertaste. Good blonde but not enough to make me want more.

White head that disipated. Orange yellow color. Citrus spice....clove and oranges smell and flavor. Taste hints of honey. After taste is thick and syrupy. Not bad over all probibly wont go out of my way to drink it again.
