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.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUN 17, 2005
Bottle. Pours a lush, thick gold with a heavy head. Aroma is yeast, slight citrus, and malt. Taste is wonderful balance of bread, malt, and orange. Mouthfeel is thick and full. The finish keeps this from being a great beer- waaaay too coppery and metallic.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Bottle - Golden hazed, huge fluffy white head. Nice soft nose of fuzzy fruit, candied citrus, and spices, with even lighter notes of grassiness and pepper. Nice balance throughout, light Belgian candy sugar sweetness up front, spices in between, and rounded off nicely with a slight hop bite. Medium bodied, zesty carbonation, drying, bittersweet finish. Refreshing on a hot summer day...

ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2005
On tap at Bar Nova in Florence. Impressive, considering the other taps were Moretti and Bud. Floral and gentle aroma masks the alcoholic bomb woven with lace of a Belgian yeast finish. A few of these found me thoroughly disoriented and sent me packing back to my room. Truly deceptive, but a bit heavy on the body.

ABUSEDGOAT (2388) - California, USA - JUN 7, 2005
On tap somewhere in France. 7%? Wow. This beer came off as unoffensive and simple. Enjoyable Belgian but nothing really here to leave a lasting impression.

Pimgref (86) - Gorinchem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2005
Hazy golden, honey-like color with off white head. Fruity spicey blonde. Not so bad.

gilvanblight (775) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2005
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’

Ungstrup (29284) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2005
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 (12547) - 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!
