33cl Bottle from ABS Drinks Winksele. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of fruity esters, phenols, grassy hops, light malty. Flavour is medium sweet, fruity, just light floral, firm bitterness underneath, nice hoppy herbal/grassy finish with some phenols, just a touch spicy. Light to medium-bodied, firm but not disturbing carbonation. Decent stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Straw colored pour, a little dark straw. Big, frothy, white head that lasts for a bit. As it slowly sinks it leaves behind a bunch of lacing. Huge peppery hop aroma with some nice yeast smells. Sweet malt aroma at that. Bitter bite on the tongue up front. Mostly from the carbon dioxide, and not the hops unfortunately. There is a hop presence in the mouth though. Mix that with some sweet malt and a nice earthy yeast and it isn’t half bad. Dry, bitterness on the back. Decent.

Bottle Share. Good brew that pours a golden blonde with a nice creamy head. Hops and Malts are well balanced. Crisp and sharp with the right amount of bitter and citrus. Good brew

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark golden color, hazy and with a fluffy head. Aroma is dominated by grassy hops with a citrus touch. A little grainy and hay-like aroma, probably from the malts. Medium bitterness that stays on the palate for quite a while, along with those grassy hops. I like that! Less sweet than other beers in the Affligem range that I have tasted, easily my favourite Affligem. Reminds me of Saison-style beers. Very nice!

My friend, who bought the bottle, gave it to me "ouch, this was strong". Thank you, Stefan, for that, because this is just a great beer. Lots of tastes and a rather typical Belgian ale.
