Now that I have become a beer snob, I find Leffe Blonde a pedestrian beer. At the time of my first tasting many years ago I wrote that it was succulent and rich, round and smooth. Found the carbonation level high but soft, with small bubbles and a pleasantly soft, mellow mouthfeel. Aroma didnt seem like much to me: almost stale at times but becomes fruity as the beer warms. Many tastes can be discovered by swishing it around in the mouth...Leffe is ubiquitous on tap in bars and makes a good standby. The glassware is nice.

Yellow colour but pours to golden, Tasted on tap and bottle at Bruselles and Bruge. Medium bodied with tasty hoppy aromas. Very good beer.

Clear gold, with a large loose head. Dominant malt aroma, with some yeast and wheat like aromas as well. Very yeasty flavor, without much body. Clean, quick finish.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2007 An everyday Belgian ale. Somewhat yeasty, nice hop character, smooth drinking with citrus zest coming through in the back of throat. Pours a dark golden color with a nice cloudy head. Good brew.

Bottle. Pours a perfect blonde color with a fluffy white head. The aroma is sweet and fruity. The flavor is of bananas, sugar, and a bit of a grassy hop. A little alcohol comes to the party as the beer warms, but not offfendingly.

Bottiglia da 33cl comprata alla Standa a Ventimiglia; versata nel bicchiere ufficiale appaiato. Schiuma candida persistente e colore dorato leggermente scuro; aroma scarso e pi che altro lievitoso. Corpo leggero, sapore dolciastro ma tendenza allamarognolo. Forse la pi cheap delle birre "dabbazia" (ovviamente escludendo la terribile e insapore Affligem), comunque piuttosto potabile.

Had this on draft at La Terrasse de Pomone, Paris in a cool little Leffe goblet on 05-26-07. Nice slightly hazy gold with a 1 finger white head. Nice lacing. Bread, sweet candy, powdered sugar, and caramel in the aroma. Very pungent even at the end of the beer. Light floral hops, caramel, a certain grassy sourness and candied sugar to the taste. A little grass, floral, and sweetness follow but quickly fade. Good carbonation and a creamy medium body. I nailed the style when I made a Duvel comparison. Great aroma, but the sourness clashed with the candy/sugar taste badly. Not bad overall.

My fave, especially in 750 ml corked (altho have NOT had draught). Not over powered by alcohol with perfect balance of fruit, spice and yeast flavor. I cannot get enough, especially with good hearty food - schnitzel, steak - or just watching TV. The pour is perfect with thick creamy head.
