UPDATED: JUN 19, 2007 When left to choose between Leffe and Grimbergen blonds and I choose Leffe. I had this with my first meal in Paris and it was right on. greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUN 10, 2007
11.2 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark straw with a frothy head. Yeasty and fruity aroma. Flavor has mild spice, yeast, and sweet finish. Sorta does remind me of a wheat beer, but with more spice. Refreshing. NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2007
Has a yeasty, faintly smoky, malt/grain aroma that reminds me a little of a smoked German-style sausage. The body is a pale golden color and holds a fairly lasting, two finger thick, fluffy white head. Lots of yeast in the fore...almost Hefeweizen tasting, but with a bit more alcohol to it. Clean and slightly watery tasting throught he middle. Has some almost sweet cream notes toward the finish and hints of fresh apple and pear. I rather enjoy it.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2008 Clear golden ale with thick creamy head. Lovely clean hop aroma. Lacing. Big mouthfeel with nice but somewhat muddled flavor. A fair example, but not really noteworthy. TyRip (40) - Canton, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2007
I was really disappointed in this beer. It has an interesting aroma, but honestly reminds me of trail bologna. It is just really odd. It has all the makings of a good beer - great full head, good finish, good mouthfeel, but the flavor is not at all what I am looking for in a beer. gunnfryd (14824) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2007

Bottle. Yeasty aroma. Yeasty flavor with orange hop taste. Good head, lacing. joe1510 (501) - Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Leffe Blonde poured crystal clear light copper. A lot of carbonation bubbles rise from all over the bottom of my tulip glass to the frothy white head. As the head settles it leaves behind sticky chunk lacing. This beer would get a higher rating excepte the head fades rather quickly and then the lacing shrinks up.
The smell comes through with an aroma of cloves and a metallic twang. Theres a weak pepper and yeast spiciness that’s hard to pick up clearly.The entire aroma as a matter of fact is subdued.
Tastes begins with very a freshly baked bread maltiness as the backdrop. The clove comes through mid-palate along with a little more of the metallic flavor. There is a mild spiciness on the finish that must be from the yeast used. Solid flavor but nothing exceptional.
Mouthfeel is good. Medium bodied and lively carbonation. The carbonation tingles the tongue and cheeks and livens things up. Slightly oily. My only complaint, and it’s a small one, is it seems to be a little light on the finish.
Drinkability is above average. I could drink a couple but the spices are too much to drink anymore.
Overall this is an available beer and a solid starter beer for someone looking to get their feet wet in the Belgian styles.
