COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Balanced and refreshing (6.8%)

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 brigh, refreshing finish. the final note on swirling has stronger notes of banana, yeasty spice and a hoppy aroma.

Golden, carbonated with nice and lasting white head. Smells like bubblegum, alcohol and detergent. At first sip it’s kinda alright, but further on it just get worse. OK there’s some nice bitterness and malt, it’s kinda refreshing but somehow it’s not balanced. It doesn’t co-operate. It leaves this horrible after-taste: blah.

This was my first beer in France this past summer (2014) and although I was never a fan of the style, after this trip, I would be. Affligem was everywhere. I was surprised to see the ABV at 6.8%, as it doesn’t come off hot. Nice, blonde, and spicy. I got the 25 cl glass, and wish I had opted for the half liter instead. I wonder if I can get this in the U.S.?

Piana pi?knie zdobi szk?o. Zm?tnione, barwa ciemnego z?ota. W zapachu guma balonowa, jasne s?ody i lekki chmiel. W smaku nieco pustawe, goryczka ?rednia, du?e wysycenie, s?odowe, prze?amane belgijsk? z?o?ono?ci? przyprawow?. Dobrze pijalne.

JLDC (83) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2014
Colour: faint gold. Average white head. Nose: vanilla, banana, cereal, hints of malts and hops. Flavours: cheesy, and yet a fruit-gum like sweetness. Quite oppposite flavours. Hints of wheat toast. Finish: short, crisp, refreshing. Verdict: Okay, but not on par with some major Blonde beers out there.

Bottle from Mogwai Bar&Mat. Aroma of malts and apricots. Pours golden with a medium white head. Taste is sweet and fresh of malts and fruits. Palate is very easy and drinkable. A nice surprise. Tasteful and very pleasant.

300ml ($2.39) Very good Blonde ale. Belgians sure do know about brewing. A very fine beer and ranks among one of my favs.
