Pours smoothly and thick. The head develops into a soapy, extra thick wonder. The smell is only glorious. Clove and sweet Belgian goodness. Taste is slightly sweet in the front with a great hop finish. Wish it was unfiltered. Not too flowery, but nice and sour. The mouth feel is smooth. Smooth. Smooth. If you are looking for a Belgian Blonde, drink this beer.

Moreover, I don't how Todd from BA can justify giving this beer a 2.2/5. Yes there are better Belgian Blondes in the world, but for a large scale product, Leffe Blonde is great.

On tap served in a Leffe chalice at the Belgian Beer Fest @ K Village, Bangkok.

Orange amber in color with medium thick white head with decent retention, it gradually recedes then left plenty of lacing patches, medium carbonated. The smell is caramel malted, honey, molasses and lightly toasted hint. Caramel malted and molasses sweetness also appear in the flavor with alcohol fusel touch through palate and some kick of hop bitterness to balance. The body is medium with smooth mouthfeel. Overall, on tap is still good and enjoyable with more balance between sweetness and bitterness portion than in bottle.

11.2 oz bottle poured into a long stemmed goblet

pours a pale golden color with a fair ammount of bubbles.

hints of spices with an emphasis on cloves, bitterness, and some slight hops

starts off with a spice, and some slight maltiness, finishes a little sweet

a little thick which isnt a bad thing, looks can be decieving
