A short story about a legendary beer
In the 1950s, a meeting took place where all beer lovers should raise their glass of Leffe. Father Abbot Nys from the Leffe abbey then met Albert Lootvoet, an experienced brewer. Nys, passionate about his abbey, was terribly sorry that since the unpleasant visit of the French revolutionary troops, the brewery had slowly fallen into disrepair and eventually had to close its doors in 1809. Such a pearl should not be forgotten, he thought – the Leffe beer had to be brewed again. Nys and Lootvoet enthusiastically took up this challenge. Not long after, the Leffe beer was available again, and it was an instant hit. After Leffe Bruin, a golden beer was also launched – the Leffe Blond. A very nice chapter for Leffe.
“The age-old expertise and the combination of bleach malt, water, hops and yeast give Leffe Blond a subtle taste and a high blond color that reflects the light. Notes of vanilla and cloves provide an extra soft, full flavor. Let it come into its own in the Leffe chalice glass, so that the soft, refreshing taste also fully reflects the elegance of this beer. ”
Appetizers for the aperitif
A real aperitif beer that also tastes great with many dishes, especially with red meat, sweet and sour dishes and cheeses with white fungus crust, such as Camenbert, Brie, Brillat-Savarin or Saint-Marcellin. Numerous cheeses with a creamy texture taste delicious with the fresh, fruity notes of the Leffe Blond. Leffe Blond contains 6.6% alcohol and is best served in a chalice glass at a temperature of 5 to 6 ° C, so that all different flavors are released.
