You know a beer is bad when you think you'd rather drink Budweiser than one more gulp. This beer looked like apple juice and was just as sweet, sickly sweet. Could not taste anything else. After 3 swallows the rest went down the drain. Absolutely horiible and easily the worst Belgian I've had.

Someone left the beer out in the yard...
Really, rather than drink Leffe Blonde, try this instead (it's cheaper, more sanitary, and tastier):
find the cheapest, nastiest malt liquor. Pour some in an open bucket. Get a dead mouse. Drop it in. Catch 6-8 live cockaroaches. Throw them in. Stomp and kill 3-4 more cockaroaches. Throw them in. Let this sit out in 90 degree heat for 5 days (cover if rain approaches). Pour it back in the bottle, being careful to spill as much as possible, and put it in the refrigerator. Never ever drink it. Give it to the beersnobbiest person you know and tell them it's the newest high dollar Belgian thing. Just watch and listen. They will swirl it around, think for a moment, and tell you it's much like Leffe Blonde, only better.

Wife works for bud and brought this home from work..... hate it but I'm not much of Belgian guy anyways more of a stout and sour type guy. Though it looks great and pours good, it lacks a lot of quality

I smell the familiar smell of a similarly known yeast, Belgian blonde adij ale but one that gives hints of the desired taste but too little and then remains an artificial lack of taste.

This beer looked totally normal at first, golden color had little head to it, and smelled kinda sweet. To my surprise when I drank it, this is the worst beer I have ever had period, maybe it is just me I don´t like sweet beer but this was terrible I did not take a mouthful or drink more than first touched my tounge on first sip. NOT for those who don´t like sweet beer. BAD BAD BAD
