A - Crystal clear golden with vigorous carbonation and a two finger head which leaves a thin ring of lace behind after it dissipates in about a minute.
S - Coriander, cloves, lillies and stale smelling light-bodied malt dominates. A touch of bananas and white grapes as well. Over all it is definitely positive though.
T - At first it has a medley of white grapes, coriander, cloves and floral (lilies predominantly) flavors. This lingers and warps into a slightly fruity bitterness. A bit of metals and stale light grains join the mix. After a while, the aftertaste becomes a bland and slightly caustic bitter, with the stale grain grain lingering. It isn't terrible, but it makes you want to drink something new after you finish.
M - Very frothy, a bit thin, but very refreshing.
D - Really good! I didn't expect much from this beer because I had seen in in the "Best of Belgium" beer pack, which contains Stella Artois. Naturally I was skeptical of any beer that would be cited as "the Best" alongside of Stella. Leffe Blonde is quite good though. It has a complex and interesting flavor. It is no trappist and it is no Duvel, but it is pretty good. I didn't expect much, and it surprised me. To say this is the "Best of Belgium" is nothing compared to the insult of Stella.

While I haven't tried nearly all the beers of this style, I can't imagine them being much better than this one. To me this beer has a near ideal balance of sweetness, light hop bitterness, esters, & spiciness flavor. The smell is banana, clove, & bubblegum while the appearance is a clear, medium gold. I must admit that I find this beer to be better than most that have reviewed it, but that is OK as it is staple in my refrigerator.
