Leffe-glond-glass256x256.png
Original gravity: 13.5 o PL
Alcohol: 6.5%
Colour: 8-12 EBC
Bitterness: 25 - 30 IBU
Description:
Leffe Blond is an authentic blond abbey beer with a slight hint of bitterness to it.

Leffe is a beer brand owned by InBev Belgium, the European operating arm of the global Anheuser–Busch InBev brewery giant.

Expert advice: “The first thing to appeal to me is Leffe Blond’s beautifully golden colour, which manages to catch and reflect the light. This unique colour is due to the use of pale malt, water, hop and yeast, of which this age-old recipe is composed. This blond, top-fermented beer will also win you over with its full, smooth and fruity flavour, which is followed by a strong and surprising aftertaste.”

Food Pairing: While this is a perfect aperitif beer, it also tastes delicious with a wide variety of dishes, especially red meat, sweet and sour dishes and white mould cheese, such as Camenbert, Brie, Brillat-Savarin or Saint-Marcellin. Leffe Blond is best served at 5-6°C in a beer chalice, which will allow all the flavours to come through.
