Brewed with vanilla & raspberry. A smooth Milkshake Blonde with layered sweetness and a fruity finish. -- What happens when two brands typical for the Lowlands shake hands to recreate two legendary Dutch items and turn them into one? Magic. Fluffy, silky smooth magic - captured in a can. We've joined forces with HEMA and created a brand new version of their ever famous tompouce. With a zing of fresh raspberry and a subtle touch of creamy vanilla, this Tompouce Ale is a dream (team) come true. The very first tompouce was made by an Amsterdam based pastry baker back in 1858. Inspired by Frisian dwarf and fairground performer Tom Pouce, the pink and white pastry soon became the most iconic cake of the Lowlands. Our Tompouce Ale brings back those nostalgic moments of enjoying that three-layered legend, without having to worry how to eat it.

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. Leffe Blond is the flagship of Leffe. The unique recipe is the fruit of centuries of experience in the art of brewing, which brings a broad palette of aromas into balance. It is elegant, smooth and fruity, and it has a spicy aftertaste with a hint of bitter orange. Its light, sunny colour is due to the use of pale malt. Leffe Blond contains 6.6 % alcohol and fits excellently with a wide variety of dishes. It is best at a temperature of 5° to 6° Celsius. A thirst-quenching aperitif, for those relaxing moments with friends and family.

The light Maredsous Blonde was the abbey's very first beer. Nowadays, the monks still drink it daily at lunch. Maredsous Blonde is a delectable blonde ale with springy fruitiness, soft malting and a slightly dry, gentle-hopped finish. A sparkling nose, complex flavors and a touch of bitterness give this fine ale all of the refreshing qualities of a classic Belgian blonde.
