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

Hazy golden, honey-like color with off white head. Fruity spicey blonde. Not so bad.

Transloucent gold. Looks like a generic macrobrewed lager. Spicy aroma quickly dispelled this feeling. No strong flavor in the mouth but a bounty of flavors soon follow. Aftertaste had a bit too much ’bite’

This beer has a color that is somewhere between orange and amber and when poured in a tulip glass a huge off-white head. The aroma is yeasty, fruity, and spicy - I pick up peaches, oranges, and coriander. The flavor is sweet with notes of the alcohol, that makes its presence known by giving off heat, but also notes of almost overripe fruits, like peaches and apples, that have just turned a bit more sweet and mellow, than when perfectly ripe. In the end coriander gives it a dry end. The mouthfeel is quite carbonated.

jimmack (1222) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Bottle. Golden color with a medium sized white head. Fruity aroma of malt, yeast and some spices. Flavor was somewhat muted. A bit of a wet cardboard taste along with some baked bread and banana. Bottle might be a bit past it’s prime, but not bad.

TBone (12449) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 24, 2005
Bottled, alc. 6.8 % (BB 10/2005)
Hazy golden, honey-like color, firm small white head. Weak fruity nose with some grassy notes. Medium-bodied, hints of sugar then some fruityness and ending to hoppy bitterness. Quite drinkable and balanced but flavors could be stronger.

Had in Paris. Yellow beer with a thick foamy foam to it. Smells like an old man! Yuk!

Thanks for this beer, pintbypint. Poured a bright gold with a gigantic head. Luckily I had a very large tulip for this task. The aroma is glazed donuts with bananas and some cinnamon. There is also some mango. The taste is sweet bananas with some fairly strong spice of cinnamon and black pepper. There is also some fresh potatoes. I woudl liek this with about any food.

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 4, 2005
(bottle) Pale orange colour with firm rocky head with nice lace. Fruity aroma with orange peels and yeast. Flavour is initially sweet and becomes a bit alcoholic at the end. Sweet malty taste with a rather dry finish. This Belgian Ale is ok, but could be better balanced.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAY 2, 2005
A slightly darker golden color tinted with a slight orange. Some very fine sediment can be seen floating in the glass, head was near white and diminished at a modest pace. Aromas were definately fruity (bananas, yellow apple, maybe pear) and sweet (brown sugar, honey). Flavor was a balanced between an overall smoothness and a slight alcohol touch. Finished slightly dry and astringent.

Great warm weather beer. Good, simple, straightforward. Very light and crisp, like the flavor that Budweiser goes for. High alcohol content is barely noticeable (except when you get drunk).
