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.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2012 (From notes 16 Sept & 16 Oct, 2012) Bottle. Color a hazy copper. Faint smell of hops, a bit herbal. A bit bubbly on the palate but overall smooth. Refreshing bitter flavor, slightly sweet aftertaste. The body is full enough for me to think this is above average. A pleasant surprise. Score increased after my second try; Affligem Blonde is refreshing and neither too sweet or too bitter.

Nie wiem jaki jest aromat z butelki, gdyż sprawdzenie tego uniemożliwia mi gushing... Piana jest wysoka ale bardzo luźna, dopiero później opada do drobniejszej i niskiej, nawet zaczyna się lepić do szkła. Piwo jest zamglone, w barwie ciemnej słomki / jasnego złota. Aromat ze szkła jest dosyć słodki, owocowy, wyraźnie przypomina zapach młodego musującego białego wina. Wysycenie jest wysokie. W smaku wyraźne nuty belgijskich ale – słodkie, przypominające nieco gumę do żucia, czy aromat do ciasta. Wyczuwalny alkohol, co jest jednak charakterystyczne dla stylu. Goryczka jak na blonda nadal bardzo niska – ledwie zauważalna.

Molto buona come ale belga, è molto frizzante e dalla schiuma generosa, colore ambra. Appena speziata, non ha un sapore di malto eccessivo, risultando piuttosto equilibrata. E’ un’ottima scelta per una birra da pasto più forte.

330ml bottle.
Pours a murky brown orange with a tall healthy cream head. Some amount of spotty lacing. Smells yeasty and fruity. Peach and apricot. Flavour is yeast and ripe fruits. Alcohol presence increases hand in hand with temperature. Quite carbonated and light feel. Easy to drink. A very nice bitter finish balances and rounds out this beer nicely. Thumbs up for this one.

on tap at De Schutter, Amsterdam. Nice fluffy head, body a gold slightly hazy. Sweet with overtures of banana- fresh.

Good, not great. Pours a clear yellow with a lovely lasting head. The bottle says to add the yeast if you want a nuttier taste. I did. Aroma is yeast and pears and apples with a little hint of oxidation. Taste is more of the same with a bit of spicy yeast thrown on the back end.. Palate is really dry, made even drier by the slight alcohol burn on the aftertaste. Overall it’s a decent introduction to the style but by no means a standout.

Nice beer for the price. Hazy orange, well carbonated. Some bread notes, light bitterness and an average yeast aroma.

On tap- pedestrian blonde with no distinctive characteristics...however drinking this while at a cafe on the beach in Tel Aviv watching the Mediterranean waters glisten in the moonlight- that’s worth an extra impression point.

W aromacie słodycz, banany. Wodniste. Stylem co nieco przypominające Belgian Ale. Przeciętne. Alkohol niewyczuwalny.
