2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.)
