Good mix of flavors and pretty nice to drink, but not Affligem’s best. A little too fizzy for my tastes but still a solid beer.

The history of this beer brings an extra dimension to it but the sour palate lets it down. I will most certainly buy and drink Affligem again but the Blonde won´t be my first choice.

Nice enough looker. Bit murky cloudy. Nice head. Sourness comes through for me on palate . Glad tried but not for me. Well wouldnt say no but not by choice

Tried in bottle, bought in Austria. Colour is light yellow/golden, hazy. Large white head, holds well. Aroma is yeast, citrus, banana and pale malts. Taste is yeast, bread, banana and citrus. It's a little sour in a good way. Mouthfeel is smooth and well carbonated. It's nice.

Elle a une robe jaune dorée, la mousse part rapidement. Je suis un peu déçu. Elle est sur la lignée d’une leffe mais il y a une sorte de goût d’alcool, un peu désagréable en bouche. Bon, c’est un avis personnelle. Elle est sucrée, le houblon ne ressort pas beaucoup. C’est pour moi une bière sans surprise.

Appearance cloudy nice foam. Aroma citrus, a nice cellar smell. Palate a bit stingy but smooth, watery in the end. Taste has banana, hops, bitterness. Would drink again, but not the best of the belge.

Bottle. Pale yellow body, huge head. Classic Belgian Blonde aroma with sweet yeast and some peachiness. A notch less spicy than Leffe. Sweet malty taste with a bit of Belgian yeast, honey and sweet apricots. A classic example of the Belgian Blonde Ale style. My only question is why isn’t this very distinctive and old beer style a separate style category here in Ratebeer?

Blonde Belgian abbey ale with sticky, lacing, very stable, off-white head and deep clear orange blonde color. Nose of canned apricots, overriped peaches, orange peel, pineapple in syrup, belgian yeast, brown bread, cildern bonbons. Taste is sweet and bitter. Palate is fruity with red apple, peach and red berries, yeasty and bready, with hints of caramel. B@Asperen

Clear pale yellow - little to no head. Small carbonation - citrus taste and aroma. Nothing special but ok.
