Bottle. Golden hazy colour with a nice big bubbly creamy head. Sweet aroma of yeast, malts, hops and fruits. Great smooth flavour of caramel, malts, some spices, some fruitiness and sourness. Great great brew!

Maria (10119) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
This one comes as Olivier Poussier, but it’s the same beer and brewed at Affligem. Warm golden, nice big head. The aroma is fruity and malty, and the flavour is lightly sweet with fruity notes of apple and citrus in the finish. Ordinary. 1708

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 15, 2011
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.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Süßer Lebkuchengeruch, etwas nach Schokolade. Süß-herber Antrunk, ausgewogen. Sehr gewürzig und eigen werdend, z.T. im hinteren Bereich unstimmig. Gewürzig-bitter im Abgang, zu krass, daher disharmonisch. 8/8/9/9/10/8
