Can anyone shoot me a Leffe Blonde Clone (PLEASE...) I even bought a book of european clones because Amazon siad it contained a leffe clone recipe...which it did not....dirty amazon....

here it is in case you have no idea what i am speaking of...

yes i could just buy leffe, but they do not distribute it in the greater Raleigh area..trust me, i called all the distributors in the area...

LEFFE

THANKS!!!

my brother in law (marine) even brought me back a leffe glass (as in the pic) and it has yet to grace a leffe worthy brew....what a shame...

if not for me, do it for the marines...who have to go to belgium and are not allowed to drink!!!

Try Here

Seems people have had good luck with it.

You should be able to use any Abby or Belgium Blond Ale as a base.

PS: If you like the Blond you should try the Triple...Good thing the store down the street has it for 4 euro a 6'er.

DrDuckbutter - Is this AG recipe true and tested?

I just feel so let down, I have enjoyed this brew on vacation far too much, I have had to take a picture of a Leffe Blonde, (1) a Waterloo (2), both with their glasses/mugs with a dinner I had on vacation. That was some great beer that just made the food even better. Only let-down is they did not have a duval in stock. (No one did).
I can not buy it here, and I would love an AG recipe that is tried and true.
Calling out all the master brewers here, please? PLEASE?
How may I beg, borrow, steal this secret?

Good luck with your answer. This post is two years old and Duck hasn't posted in over a year.


Why?
