Bottle, smell is citrus and floral, appearance is golden yellow with a lasting white head, taste is sweet with a hint of alcohol that finishes a little bitter. Really good easy drinking non filling beer.

Batavi (61) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2015
Uitgeschonken in Gouden Carolus bokaal, volle goudgele kleur, met vrij kleine maar wel stabiele witte schuimkraag. De geur is niet zo sterk met name Belgische gist, sinaasappel en wat specerijen. De smaak is zeker niet zwak, maar heeft alle elementen voor een krachtige en aangename tripel. Vrij zoet, met tonen van banaan, honing en fijne specerijen als koriander, gember en kruidnagel. Het alcoholpercentage van 9% is zeker aanwezig, met medium carbonatie en een licht droge alcoholische afdronk van banaan en kruidige hop. De Affligem Tripel is een uitstekend voorbeeld van deze altijd mooie bierstijl, echter niet de absolute top, daarvoor is dit bier waarschijnlijk toch iets te commercieel voor in de markt gezet.

rondphoto (2545) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 21, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy medium amber color, white head cover, blobs of lace that slip back into the drink. Taste is caramel malt that strays toward bitter in the palate, adding fizz on the finish. Not quite a traditional Belgian, and not one of Affligem’s best, but it is easy to drink, and it keeps the alcohol well-hidden.

butelka, warka do 10-09-16. I juz przy nalewaniu spore zaskoczenie - to ma byc refermentacja? to gdzie jakis osad? no moze i jest, ale faktycznie calkowicie sladowy... piwo po nalaniu do konca, nadal zaledwie bardzo lekko metnawe. w ladnym, czystym cieplym kolorze - jasny bursztyn. Piana rowniez ladna, niezawysoka, ale trzymajaca sie kilkumilimetrowa warstewka do konca. Choc pokal z grawerem troszke to wymusza, zwlaszcza wobec wysokiego wysycenia. W aromacie czysto: drozdzowo, slodowo, lekko przyprawowo, lekko kwiatowo i ziolowo i lekko estrowo - owocowo-brzoskwiniowo-bananowo (te owocowe, w szczegolnosci bananowe nuty sa coraz silniejsze, ze wzrostem temperatury). Bardzo fajna kombinacja aromatow. dajaca w sumie slodkie wrazenie. W smaku rowniez slodycz dosc wysoka. i czuc niemal wszystko, co obiecuje aromat - poczatkowo od lekkich nut owocowych ku ostrzejszym przyprawowym i w posmakach juz lekko goryczkowym. Alkohol doskonale, zdradliwie ukryty. Czuc tez szczypanie jezyka od ciut za wysokiego jak dla mnie wysycenia, ale na szczescie po chwili piwo sie odgazowywuje (zasluga pokalu duvala ktorego jestem fanem). srednio pelne. Sumarycznie: jeden z najlepszych tripli jakie mielem okazje pic. super. i fakt, ze produkuje go koncern moze zaskakiwac.

33cl bottle @ home. Poured amber colored with a frothy white head. Apricots, citrusy, light spicy aroma. Pleasant. Flavor has apricots, yeasty notes, spices, citrus peel. Dry, fruity finish. Lingering. Some mild boozyness. A very tasty tripel.
