This is my favorite "chugging" beer. It's light, refreshing, and smooth, with a great golden ale taste.

Leffe is a definitive go to for me. It's about $7 for a bottle in Washinton DC, so when I found it for $1.39 at a small fine goods store in my local town (I work at an engineering and agricultural school, surrounded by small business), I started buying it for a few over the weekend.

Worth the price, and would pay more. It's a light golden color. Smells of clove, banana, and corriander. Some sweet booze but it's subtle.

Taste is just after the nose, with some good malt and a slight bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is crisp and sharp, medium carbonation, with some linger to the spices.

Over all it's good. Second favorite among Belgian blondes, just after Duvel.

This review has been adjusted to reflect a new pour, drank from a glass rather than a bottle.

Look: A sort of hazy orange-yellow color, average white head.

Smell: Spicy, fruity malt. A note of banana.

Taste: Fruity with a hint of bitterness as it's swallowed. Sweet and bready, with barely a hint of banana esters.

Mouthfeel: Fairly thick and creamy.

Overall: On a second drink, this was much better! I think the batch I got was heavy on the esters, because it completely changed when I bought a different bottle from a different store almost a month later.

One o f the best blonde on the market with no doubt. The head and the smell maybe is not that impressive, but the taste is amazing. If you are in Europe, is the best value for a blonde you could get. 0.75L for less than 3 euros.

Wow the Leffe Blonde is a lot more tamer than the Orval. This is a more easy beer to drink. I do recommend this one to try out. Cheers! A- (90-94) score range
