Another good offering from Leffe: Leffe Blonde

Earlier this month I reviewed Leffe Brune which I liked, **** stars. This time I tried a bottle of Leffe Blonde, which is a Belgian pale ale with an abv of 6.6%.
Appearance- Light golden amber color with lots of tiny bubbles. Big, creamy, white head which slightly clings to the side of the glass.

Smell- Yeasty, grainy, honey, fruity, some hops and floral/grassy notes.

Taste- Sweet Honey/nectar, malt, some hops, grassy and a pleasant toffee sweetness.

Mouth- Smooth with lively carbonation.

Drinkability- I'd have another.

Bottom line:
This beer is sweet, creamy and easy to drink.

*** 1/2 (out of 5 *)

Leffe Blonde, 6.6% ABV

Leffe Blonde is no doubt the most famous of the Leffe brewery's portfolio of about eight beers (regular and seasonal). This pale ale is a year-round favourite internationally and is available at just about every venue that serves any form for Belgian and/or world beers. Its ubiquity is for good reason, as it is an excellent example of a Belgian spicy pale beer ...
