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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
