BBB63 (6014) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Corked bottle and served in Duvel snifter: Pours a clean deep golden hue with a mostly lasting frothy head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of herbal bittering hops, a touch of apple skins, biscuity malts, hint of light crystal and plenty of Belgian yeast esters of bubblegum, banana and clove. The taste is still mostly malt and yeast driven but you can indeed notice the increased bitterness. There is a moderate hop spice and leafy tone about the midsection. The finish is earthy and a bit astringent. The mouth feel is lively but not has crisp as I would have hoped. It is a good beer but I would much rather have a Duvel Tripel Hop over this.

750 cc bottle from Capone’s. I am utterly amazed that I am rating this one yet have never had the Affligem blonde. Pours canary golden with 1-finger frothy white head and a lively carbonation. Nose is funky yeasty malt, hops, apricotty fruit. Tastes complex, fruity and yeasty, with mid-palate hops, notes of florals, apricot, and honey, and a lively mouthfeel.

crossovert (7302) - Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Clear golden pour. Smell is mostly banana, yeast-dominant. Super spicy taste, sweet, some yeast in there. Potent for the abv. Dry effervescent palate. similiar to brooklyn sorachi ace which I am drinking side-by-side as a coincidence.

Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a hazy golden with loads of tiny impurities and a white head. Spicy fruity and yeasty nose. Medium body, fruit and Belgian yeast - and then a spicy hoppiness reminding me of Sorachi Ace. Not bad. 040113
