Beltramelli (470) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JAN 10, 2008
Tomada em Assisi, 2006. Belga gostosinha, mas comparada ŗs grandes belgas ostenta um sabor um pouco "pesado" e amargo.

KimJohansen (10409) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2008
Golden with tiny head. Yeasty and malty aroma with orange notes. Same goes for the flavor. Very plain but drinkable.

Pours to a thin white head. Aromas of yeast and fruity. Initial flavor of alcohol with a yeasty, slighty bitter finish. Good beer.

drfabulous (6021) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JAN 3, 2008
On draft or in bottle: fairly safe abbey that I turn to when nothing else is on tap. Case in point: Chicago. Late night. Most bars where we are downtown closed. We find a bar that is open, and the choice comes down to Honkers or this. I take the Affligem, of course. And surprise, surprise, it was served in the right glass! I ought to crank up the rating a point just for that. Canít remember the barís name. My friends had the Honkers.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Bottle from Winking Lizard. Was not given proper glassware. Not sure how that affected things. Poured a golden orange in color, large foamy head. Smelled of grapefruit and grass...Taste was fruity and very bubbly. Drinkable, just not a favorite of mine.

dkazuk (248) - winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 21, 2007
330ml bottle.
Pours a murky brown orange with a tall healthy cream head. Some amount of spotty lacing. Smells yeasty and fruity. Peach and apricot. Flavour is yeast and ripe fruits. Alcohol presence increases hand in hand with temperature. Quite carbonated and light feel. Easy to drink. A very nice bitter finish balances and rounds out this beer nicely. Thumbs up for this one.

riversideAK (6040) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Light yeasty aroma with some skunkiness. Pours a hazy gold with a big bubbly head and lots of visible carbonation. The flavor tasted like a mix of generic Belgian Ale and Heineken. Was very carbonated and easy to drink, but was too skunky and somewhat metallic to be very enjoyable.

elelwarren (140) - SF Bay area, California, USA - DEC 14, 2007
Bottle poured into Tulip glass. Pours with a huge head. Cloudy & golden. Indeterminate fruity aroma. Flavor less pronounced at first: slightly grapey, moderately sweet, with a slightly dry & hoppy ending. Prickly carbonation, & rather thick in the mouth. Good drinking, but not magical.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - DEC 13, 2007
Bottle & Tap. Whatís to say about this beer? Itís a nice light, easy drinking Belgian ale. At about $7 a six pack, itís a go to session beer that I often pick up. Not a mind blowing ale by any means, but itís simple and tasty.
