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.

oh6gdx (20274) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2010
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.

MiP (13573) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2007
Bottle in Leiden. Aroma of grain and sweet malts. Dark golden colour, stable white head. The flavour starts off a bit watery with some fresh white bread. Finishes with a hint of bitter hops and a rubbery feel. Not bad, though. High carbonation and swelling mouthfeel.

yngwie (13345) - 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

maeib (8627) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2005
Bottled. A light golden coloured beer which pours with hardly any head. The aroma is a little lemony and yeasty, but quite thin. The taste is nicely hoppy and sharp, and the finish is long and dry.
