COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Balanced and refreshing (6.8%)

Bright, yellow-golden with a firm, dense head. Natural carbonation and a carefully balanced aroma of fresh bread, banana spice, citrus and hints of vanilla.

A smooth taste. Malty, nutty softness followed by the roundess of tropical fruit and then a dry, light bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth, round mouth-feel. A brigh, refreshing finish. the final note on swirling has stronger notes of banana, yeasty spice and a hoppy aroma.

bubbleflubber (1914) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Pours orange straw into the glass, with a nicely decent head and spider lacing. The nose is of sweet and sours, with hints of candied citrus fruits. The flavor is quite complex, with hints (in no particular order) of wheat, yeast, sours, mash, beans/legumes, and slight hops. The finish (and effervescence) reminds me of legumes and wheat (dry-hopped). The mouthfeel is light but round, and all in all, not a bad offering. Feels a little thin for a Belgian Ale, and it’s not my first choice, but then again, I wouldn’t turn it away.

Hansen (7238) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2006
Unclear, orange beer. White, lasting head. Aroma is hopped, perhaps hints of sulfur. Flavor starts bitter, then sweet, and finish is notes of sulfur. No spice.

ilikestuff (224) - Irving, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Very nice brew, and if you pour it right, you can taste two distinctly different brews. Without pouring the yeast, you get a very crisp flavor. A smewhat fruity apple/grape flavor.aroma is alcohol and sweetness. The head is huge and white, when you pour in the yeast it goes from bubbly to thick, also clouds up the clear golden, to a hazy light amber. Takes away some of the offensive alcohol flavor and aroma, and makes this brew very nice.

CJfromPhilly (139) - Aston, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2006
Pours from the 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass an apricot colored orange with the usual huge rocky Belgian head. Active carbonation, as you would probably expect. Aroma is citrusy, hints of orange peel. Flavor matches the aroma, an orange peel bitterness, with the alcohol coming through on the swallow, but not in an overpowering sense. Mouthfeel is fizzy on the tongue and the body has a nice fullness to it. This was an impulse purchase that turned out to be a pretty good pick-up. Does the Belgian tradition proud IMHO.

alexanderj (3377) - Branson, Missouri, USA - SEP 25, 2006
12 oz bottle, Sept 2006. Pours a ruddy gold; somewhat hazy. Large white head. Highly carbonated. Yeasty and spicy aroma. Carbonation very present in the taste. Taste was decent. Flavor was somewhat subdued. Malty and citrusy. I wouldn’t put it up there with alot of Belgian ales.

holdenn (2088) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2006
12 oz bottle. pours pale yellow with a nice white head that lasts most of the way down. Yeasty belgium spiced aroma. Nicely carbonated on the tongue yeasty grapefruit flavors but a little thin and lacking. Thin crisp finish.

Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2006
As the description and most people have said, it’s quite drinkable for such a potent beer. Dull straw color, long-lasting head, with good lace. Cloying mouthfeel. Not a fan of this style but this one is alright. Cheers!

KnutAlbert (6339) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2006
A decent Belgian blonde. Lots of carbonation, thirst-quenching, but not really outstanding. Round and easy-drinking.

As blonds go, this one is fairly tasty with a good balance. There is a slight bitterness near the end, but it is not enough to take away from the overall drinking experience that is Affligem Blonde. Although good, I wouldn’t consider this above and beyond what most belgian whites offer.

Diogčne (1067) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 17, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2009 33 cl bottle from LCBO. Hazy blond with a medium white head. Aroma is citrusy, hearbal and malty with notes of yeast. Taste is at first citrusy and malty, than, some herbal notes from hops and a slight bitterness in aftertaste.
