Alengrin (4348) - BELGIUM - DEC 11, 2014
UPDATED: APR 30, 2016 Affligem’s hoppy Christmas ale, usually regarded as the best in the series. This rating is from old tasting notes (eleven years ago), when it was a hazy peach blonde beer under a thick and moussy, off-white head, with fruity aroma, grassy and somewhat peppery hops, yeasty profile, orange, peach and banana, malt sweetish with soft mouthfeel evolving into a crisp and long, dry hop bitterness with some vague solvents as well. Well-balanced and more interesting than the average ’big brand’ abbey beer, and that is still true for the current version, though it now has a metallic touch to it, albeit (fortunately) less so than the Blond or the Tripel; finish is still leafy hop bitterish, but could do with even more hops. Somewhat boring, but in any case still better than the other Affligems. Had this again recently and it has become notably sweeter (and less hop bitter) and has certain metallic traits now which bothered me, as they do in the other Affligems these days; as with the other embodiments of this brand, I cannot but conclude that they have been ruined by Heineken in recent years. My rating here is an average of both tastings (3.4/5 for the original version and 2.8/5 for the current version).
