Leffe Blond by Abbaye de Leffe

Rating: 3.75/5

Leffe Blond by Abbaye de Leffe is a 6.6%ABV Belgian Blonde Pale Ale. Finally had a chance to try this beer after realizing that InBev took a hold of the distribution. I didn’t wanna try it at first but then when I finally had a chance I was pleasantly surprised

Label:

Award-winning Leffe Blonde is a full-bodied deep golden ale that is surprisingly subtle and delicate. Belgium’s classic abbey ale is best served in its own chalice-shaped glass, accentuating the ale’s aroma and creating the pefect head. 

This beer is actually like the Abbeys yet more like a German Bavarian Heffeweizen. Bread yeast and banana clove upfront. Some sugar, minor lemon, honey, some minor pilsener and grass. Good luck finding the alcohol. They do well to hide it. Smooth, crisp and refreshing. A light Belgian if I may add. This beer is pretty good if you want a gateway into the world of Belgian Beers. LOL even if it does taste more like a Bavarian German beer. Now if you add complexity of dark fruits then we would be in business. Still. A pretty good beer even if it was imported by InBev. I would take this any day over many selections if I had no craft beer available. An entry level beer for those who love Belgian Beers 😛
