Details

The classic Belgian Abbey beer Leffe Blonde is now available in six-litre PerfectDraft kegs for the first time. It is an authentic Abbey beer brewed to the exacting standards set up by Leffe’s abbey Father Abbot Nys and master brewer Albert Lootvoet when the brewing tradition of Leffe began again in the 1950s. Leffe Blonde is the second beer they brewed. It is a perfect aperitif , and also goes particularly well with red meat and strong cheeses.

Must be used in conjunction with the Perfect Draft Machine

Brewery Info

Leffe. It’s one of the world’s most recognisable Belgian beers. Understandably so, it’s had more than 800, albeit tumultuous, years to build a brand and nail that quality. There are few beers that have quite such a development time.

Abbaye de Leffe in Dinant was founded in the 12th century and, like most abbeys and churches, they built a brewery to serve drinks to parishioners and pilgrims. Most people, including children, drank beer of some sort as it was much safer to drink than water.

Over the intervening few centuries, Leffe marked itself out as a brewery of quality. The abbey was seriously damaged in the years around the French Revolution but managed to keep brewing until 1809. During the First World War, many of the brewing kettles were melted down for ammunition.

It wasn’t until 1929, when the abbey was re-established, and in 1952, Father Abbot Nys, along with brewer Albert Lootvoet, decided to start the brewery taking inspiration from its original recipes. Leffe Brune was available again. It’s no longer brewed at the abbey (they produce way too much for that), but Leffe remains officially an ‘abbey’ beer. Today, there’s a museum opposite the abbey in Dinat – Maison Leffe – where you can taste the beer.

Today, there are nine varieties of Leffe, plus occasional limited run beers. The Brune is one of the best examples of its kind, a deep brown beer full of sweet fruit flavours but enough tartness to make it drinkable. Even stronger is Leffe Radieuse full of fruit aromas – orange rind and coriander seeds are particularly apparent; it’s a long, warming drink. The Blond is, of course, a classic pale abbey beer, with a beautiful gold colour and a rich head. Best served in a Leffe chalice of course.

An ideal beer for Perfect Draft! Full of flavour & strong enough to enjoy in small measures. It can actually last more than a few days!

I’ve had this a few times now and I must say, I’m not sure you would get a better glass of Leffe at your local Belgium bar. It’s smooth, refreshing and packed with that full-bodied flavour.

Truly wonderful beer. I drank this sparingly over 3 weeks on the run up to Christmas and it lasted perfectly well. Ideal beer if you just want a couple of drinks on those cold winter nights
Excellent medium strength Belgian beer

This is one of my wife and I's favourite beers and a keg I will come back to time after time. In fact Leffe Blonde and Kwak are two of the main reasons I bought a Perfect Draft in the first place! Try it - you'll love it!
