A SHORT STORY ABOUT A LEGENDARY BEER
In the fifties, an extraordinary meeting took place that all beer enthusiasts should raise
their glass of Leffe to.
The abbey’s Father Abbot Nys became acquainted with Albert Lootvoet, a master brewer.
Passionate about the future of the brewery, Father Nys was upset to have to witness how, since the unpleasant
stay of the French revolutionaries, the brewery had slowly fallen into decline and had eventually had to close
its doors in 1809. Such a magnificent place could not be forgotten, he believed, and he vowed to bring the Leffe
beer back. Father Nys and the brewer set about the challenge with vigour…and succeeded. Shortly after, the
Leffe brewery was back in full effect. After Leffe Brown, a beer that shone brighter than the sun saw the
light of day; they named it Leffe Blond – a beautiful chapter for Leffe indeed.
“Age-old expertise and the combination of pale malt, water, hop and yeast lend Leffe Blond its
subtle taste and golden colour, which manages to catch and reflect the light. Hints of vanilla and clove infuse
the beer with an even smoother flavour, which best expresses itself in a Leffe chalice, simultaneously allowing
the soft, fresh essence of this beer to unveil its true elegance."
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. There are countless soft-centred cheeses that are a good match for the fresh and fruity Leffe
Blond. Leffe Blond contains 6.6% alcohol and is best served at 5-6°C in a beer chalice, which will allow all
the flavours to come through.
