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.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2006
Bottled. Slightly hazy, golden beer with an off-white head. Malt, cellar and fruits in the aroma. Some metal too. The flavor starts with some alcohol, then spices, malt and hops. Medium body and a dry finish. Ok, it’s better than the regular Norwegian pilsner, but when compared to other Belgians, it doesn’t stand out from the crowd. (060623)

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2005
50cl bottle from Carrefour. Golden beer with thin white head. Some yeast/citrus/candy sugar/caramel aromas. Not great in mouth with over carbonation. Slightly metallic. Candy sugar dominates then harsh hops. Not a good construction and poor balance

Chris at Ebenezer Kezar opened a 1953 bottle of this for us. Not sure which one it was, since it just had Affligem etched on the bottle. It was still more or less drinkable, very oxidized of course, but was still recognizable as a beer. A beer older than me.

TBone (12998) - 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.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2005
Peachy-orange colour, rocky head and slow, mellow carbonation makes for an impressive lead-in. The aroma shows at first white pepper, then moves on to mango, banana and sweet malt. It’s a little bit firm with white peppery alcohol notes, but this is just a foil against a lot of sweet malts. Dusty yeast notes add accent, as do light apricotty esters.

(Draught) Hazy golden amber colored ale pours with a medium foamy head. Descent tasting Belgian.
