Pours a warm yellow golden clear wit ha healthy white head. The nose is sweet with malt and fruity esters. Reminds me of a wheat beer, though none of that wheaty graininess. A little straw/hint of grass. the mouthfeel is surprisingly full and smooth with a bit of slickness to it. The flavors are sweet with a little bit of a spicy Belgian kick of fruitiness to it. There’s a small amount of that straw sort of hops. A lingering strawberry. very light sweetness up front, almost like bubblegum, dries out very quickly into a lingering toasty strawberry by the end. The sweetness reminds me of Stella. The lack of extreme complexity reminds me of Stella. But in the end, I think this is a bit better a beer, and one I think I might put in that class along with Sam Adams and SNPA. khoumic (2) - USA - FEB 4, 2008 does not count
Bottle. Nice smooth mouthfeel with perfect carbonation level and moderately light fluffy head. Medium bodied for a Blond, with nice banana/apple flavors and slight clove/citrus aroma. Tends to remind me of the Spring especially when served in the Tulip. nelsonibarruri (57) - URUGUAY - FEB 3, 2008
Botella. Comprada en superemercado. Muy buena cerveza. Cuerpo, dulce, se siente el alcohol en la boca. Esperaba u poco mas de aroma. Para tomar siempre que se pueda. AbeerWolf (27) - USA - JAN 30, 2008
A very well done abbey! A sweet immediate note with a moderate head. Beautiful golden color that looks great in a tulip. You can definitely taste the alcohol if the beer gets to warm. A tasty and satisfying beer that deserves the praise. thill25 (232) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2008
12 oz served in a tumbler...Nice golden-yellow color. Thick and very sweet and fruity head aroma. Flavor was very "flat" for this style...picked up a bit of banana, yeast, sweet-bread flavors. Very light on the palate; IMHO a little too light. Good beer and I’d have it again, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to purchase.

This is the best of Leffe’s offerings. Poured the color of golden syrup with a big foaming head that left plenty of lace. The nose is ripe and summery. Hints of ripening hay, bubble gum, yeast, cookie-like malt and plenty of alcohol. It’s firm and succulent at the front of the mouth with a fine juicy berry middle and a surprisingly light footprint. It is not especially complex but solid drinking all the same. hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - JAN 28, 2008
bottle- decently smooth belgian white. not my favorite style of beer, but nothing offensive here. 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. AmazonMatt (285) - PANAMA - JAN 27, 2008
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 isn’t well balanced. Again, here in Panama today, but no expectations that it will be next month. Guinness4Duff (515) - Tallahassee (and Poconos, PA), Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2008
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.
