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.

caesar (5316) - 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.

bozoNZ (718) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 20, 2010
Murky golden, thin head. Slightly fruity aroma, a bit of dry spices. Cardboardy, dry faintly peppery with some dry spice finish. Not bad but not the greatest drinking

Bottled (thanks jbrus!). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, some alcohol, mild caramel and some slight notes of alcohol. Flavour is actually quuite much the same. Clean, but not too exciting.

Bottle from altonbrownd! Semi-cloudy amber. Creamy dense white head actually looks like whipped cream topping. Carbonation is barely visible in the tall glass. How can one put a number on the appearance of a"Belgian Ale" since they seem to have quite a range. I long to quote the Lebowski.... "so you have no frame of referance! You are like a child who wanders in in th middle of a conversation! Shut the Fu@k up Donny!!" Whew.. I digress.... Body is quite light and ephemeral in duration. Droopy lacing sticks to one half of glass and is totally erased on quaff side.. Alight tingle of hops appears and fades just as quickly. Peary esters in wings of mouthfeel. Not much of a nose....hints of spice. Donny.....who loved bowling.

TrefwoordPunk (818) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear golden with a big white head and a sweet, grainy smell. The initial taste is pretty sweet, malty, almost like there is honey in the beer. But after that a nice hoppy finish comes in that makes this beer a pretty good blonde.
