Commercial Description

Abbey of Leffe blonde beer is a highly fermented beer to be savoured. The ingredients are light malt, corn, water, hops and yeast, which give it a bright golden colour with dazzling reflections. The alcohol content is 6.6 %, the ideal serving temperature 5° to 6 °C. As a bottled beer, it is to be savoured with pleasure, as a draft beer it is thirst quenching. The taste is full, sweet and fruity (with a hint of bitter orange), and the after-taste is powerful and surprising.

    This subtle but complex ale is meant to be a showcase on our favorite belgian yeast and beautiful belgian malts. These elements produce and clean spicy citrus finish.

    Nice full-bodied beer that I liked a lot. I think it's a knotch under Leffe Brown which is a very tasty beer. An everyday easy belgian beer if there is such a thing.

    Let me introduce you to my most favorite Belgian Pale Ale… Leffe Blonde. Pale amber in color, this ale pumps out a full-bodied, flavor-rich beer. First you’ll notice the soothing amber color in which light dances on the surface and deep within the glass. Take a moment to enjoy the substantial head that forms when the beer is poured just right. As you enjoy this fine ale, take note of the foam rings that line your glass. Drinking doesn’t just involve taste… take time to enjoy the look and display that your beer provides!

    Then take in your first drink… no other ale fills my mouth like this hearty Belgian Ale! I notice different flavors each time I enjoy this ale but for the most part it imparts a slightly sweet yet slightly spicy flavor that is as soft as warm caramel on the tongue. There are also subtle hints of vanilla and maybe even some toffee. At times I’ve tasted (or did I imagine it?!) slight tastes of banana but definitely some sweet spices! As for the aroma of the ale… well… it really smells like banana nut bread!

    Keep in mind that Belgian ales are thought to be amongst the best in the world. They are very complex but very, very rewarding to the ale connoisseur! So grab ya some Leffe… get it as cold as you can, pour you a glass and enjoy this awesome ale!

    [Best served in a Trappist glass]

    oured a clear dark yellow with a large white rocky head that was mostly diminishing and had poor lacing. The aroma of straw malts, a grassy hop and a moldy yeast. It tasted bitter-sour at first and progressed into a yeasty full bodied flavor slighty hinted with honey. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture. Overall a nice yeasty belgian brew.

    I like this beer because it's an abbay beer -so, it's fruity and hoppy- but I can be drank anytime. If you want to really appreciate it at home or at the bar with friends, both fit.
