COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered
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 bright, refreshing finish. the final note on swirling has stronger notes of banana, yeasty spice and a hoppy aroma.

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 (6346) - 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.

Diogène (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.

IMtheOptimator (1162) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Poured a strongly effervescent golden with a large fluffy white head. Strong aroma of grassy noble hops, pear juice, orangey citrus and some alcohol dryness. Flavor is light and refreshing toffee, lemony acidity, some light grassiness. Flavor becomes a bit more muddled on successive tastes. Finishes vinous and slightly dry. Body is light and lively. Sort of a toned down version of a generic Belgian Strong ale. Very drinkable and refreshing, while retaining enough complexity to remain interesting.

thornecb (4697) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 30, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2006 Pours bright gold into a shaker. Nice white micro lasting micro head. Soft and slightly spicy with a bitter pepper lasting finish.

Stefano (1891) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2006
Golden with white head. Flavour is light to moderately bitter with light acidity. A good amount of alcohol is present in the long finish which balances the sweetness. Dry bitter aftertaste.

A golden pour, white head. A nicely soft spiced aroma. Light malts, balanced with spices, belgian. Soft, slightly astringent. nice flavor profile.

larsga (6501) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2006
Small offwhite head over hazy light orange body. Aroma is spicy, grassy hops, sweetish yeast with a strange, egg-like character, wood, and a whiff of licorice and terpentine, and some alcohol. Taste is quite sharp, bitter hops, somewhat acidic, spicy wood and grainy malts. Aroma is clearly better than the taste. Somewhat disappointing mouthfeel, a bit thin and lacking in body. (0.33l bottle.)
