COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Leidsch Blond is a fresh fruity topfermented beer. Brewed with the best ingredients: barley, caramalts, wheat, munich, Hallertau and Saaz-hop. The label shows a painting by Jan Steen who lived in Leiden (1626-1679) and who’s of course a world famous painter. Less known are his activities as a brewer like his father was.

Good looking head. Unclear orange color, this might be unfiltered. Smell caramel. Really fizzy, annoying mouth feeling. East to drink taste, quite light. Aroma has nuts and some sweetness. Quite OK, but nothing extra ordinary.

Nice blond beer. It’s a good brew. I do find it a bit average though. Nothing wrong with the beer.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 21, 2011
Bottle, from trade with fonefan. It pours a clear, golden body and a small, off-white head. The aroma is fruity with a touch of white sugar and a pleasant grassy, piney and peppery hoppyness. The flavor has some citrusy hoppyness to go with the fruityness from the yeast, and the pale malts. Medium body, pleasant carbonation. Considering it being made at De Proef, I wouldn’t expect a bad beer, but on the other hand, it’s as ordinary as expected. It drinks easily and tastes decent, but it’s just one in the crowd. 110421

caesar (5119) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2011
Bottled. Great golden color, medium slight off-white head. Aroma of fruity and grassy noble hops. Soft bitter taste, slight sweet. Nothing spectacular or outspoken in taste, but very nicely balanced beer. Not like the average belgian blonde, which usually is too sweet or too spicy, but in this one the use of noble hops do the trick.
