Affligem Blonde, the classic clear blonde abbey ale, with a gentle roundness and 6.8% alcohol. Low on bitterness, it is eminently drinkable.

This one is tough because I’ve had different experiences without. However, let get on w it. Golden appearence, average head. Fermented pea-ish aroma with a delicate and semiintertwinedscent of tropical fruits. It goes down easy and leaves quite a nice yeasty feeling in the mouth.

albert007 (415) - Penobsquis, New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 6, 2005
Bottle. Slightly darker yellow with white head & hanginaround-lace. Honey, spices, white cake & banana bread aroma. Body is medium & creamy, flavor is initially slightly metallic, honeyish malty sweetness, finishing bitter & a bit dry, then the metallic taste returns. Alright beer, but I probably won’t try it again, unless it’s free.

[bottle from peckhams] pours golden with a good head which seems to be sticking around. nose has some banana aromas, a little apricot with some yeast notes and a faint pepperiness. body is good, finish is a little dry and is ruined a little by some harsh alcohol which comes through.

FlacoAlto (3759) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 19, 2005
Pours with a three finger thick, frothy, large bubbled, rocky, lacing, pale tan colored head that sits atop a hazy, orangish gold colored beer. The aroma is faintly malty at first with notes of lightly toasted malt, it then picks up a lightly astringent, almost spicy note that reminds me a bit of basil, bergamot and fresh cut weeds. All in all the aroma is fairly subdued though.

This beer is pretty well carbonated and it foams effervescently as it rolls across my tongue for the first time. There is a malty sweetness here that lasts throughout, which accentuates a soft orange-fruit note that is in this beer. This beer has a bit of a sharp bite to it as well, a combination of the carbonation and the spicy character of this brew. The finish has a long subtle note that reminds me of vanilla cream, sort of in a softly sweet lightly mouth-coating way. This beer is slightly herbal in character, yet balanced by a citrusy fruitiness, and rounded out by a bit of spiciness (ginger and pepper being most notable).

This beer is very well made, there is certainly nothing off-putting here, but I still feel that it lacks a certain something. While all of the flavors are nice, it is lacking either an intensity or an interesting quality that would keep me coming back for more.
