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. BEERGUY007 (206) - Scotia, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Got this one at Mahar’s. Not really a fan of blond’s, 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.

~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.

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. elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - JAN 21, 2008
Bottle. Gold pour with a large fluffy white head, aroma is fruity, estery. Medium bodied, balanced on the sweet side, goes down easy. Not bad at all. armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 18, 2008
0.33 l bottle. Golden-honey beer under a small head. The aroma is spicey-floral. The flavour is creamy and complex with yeast, some bubblegum and honey. Good beer from the world leader, mass-producer InBev. The soul of that beer is the recipe from the middle-age abbey... JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 18, 2008
On tap at Bistro du Coin, D.C. One of the most solid, drinkable blonds out there. Decent body, nice head and retention, it’s got soft floral notes in the aroma. Very smooth tasting, not much in the way of pepper or yeast, just some sweetness and bright flavors. tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Bottle. Sampled at the MN RB Winter Gathering. Not a clue as to who brought the bottle but thanks! Simple Belgian Ale. Aroma of bananas, yeast, soap, honey and dust. Pours bright clear gold. Flavor was rather sweet. Malt, honey, sugar, candy but balanced decently by a good dry yeast component. Sticky body.
