UPDATED: MAY 11, 2004 Sweet aroma like cotton candy and brown sugar. Citrusy and fruity. Some honey,too. Cloudy dark golden liquid w/foamy egg-white lacing head. Med-hi carb and full watery body. Sweet taste and alcohol to start. Nice fruity notes w/the malts. Some bitterness to finish before settling to a sweet,light bitter after with a hint of lemon.

Golden colour, cloudy appereance, nice head. Honey and peach in the aroma. The flavour is sweet (honey) and fruity, with traces of peach, orange peels and apricot. Just a touch of hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Not enough complex and a bit unbalanced, but not bad.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2003 Had this at the Bon Vivant Beer Lovers Club on 4-25-03. Pours a blondish-brown in color with an off-tan head. Aroma is full of spice, and citrus fruit with a slight hop character. Pleasant taste and aftertaste that reminds me of a weaker hefeweizen. Very refreshing though and worth trying.

Lots of tang here, I wouldn't call it spicy...just a bit of lemon I think. Billowy head. Very little aroma, mostly that of old orange juice. I dislike that this brew is somehow related to Heineken.

Wheaty and yeasty. Quite decent and complex beer. Not much flavor but rather nice. However thin and watery.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2003 yeasty aroma... light golden color, nice big head. GUSHED! beware, this bottle is violent! spicy and a little bitter, decent flavor. a little more depth when it's warm. So nice how they decided to inform me on the box that "In Europe, Affligem's Abbey Ale is called 'The Perfect Ale'." Thanks for taking me for an idiot, Affligem. bastards

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2003 Update: Amazing how much neat Belgian flavor can be packed into such an easy drinker. Perfect on the patio of my favorite beer bar on a cooler summer day. Great stuff.
Old: Pretty darned good warm weather beer tasted on a cold day in March. Considerable warming alcohol with bubbly frame. Flavor is fruity lightness with sourness and hop bitterness interjecting rather nicely. I haven't any doubt that there are circumstances in which this beer would be perfect. Some greatness lurking here.
