Full review with photos: http://beer47.com/2009/04/van-steenberge- review: Appearance. Augustijn Ale has a foamy white head that lingers in a very thin layer on top of the beer until the last drop. It has a honey orange color and is cloudy like a gem stone. ---- Smell. It has the expected Belgian yeast aroma, but with a slight twist like a fresh banana that is ever so slightly green and a hint of cloves. Unexpectedly, however, this beer has a subtle but nice citrus-orange hoppy bouquet. There is also the aroma of sweet barley malt. ---- Taste. Augustijn Ale has a barley malt sweetness that is wel balanced by the hop bitterness. The malt flavor is much stronger tasting than is was smelling. The sweetness of the malt is enhanced by the fresh slightly-unripe banana. The clove is more prominent in the flavor probably by the slightly spicy hop flavors. ---- Mouthfeel. Despite being 8% alcohol by volume, this is a medium-bodied beer. I calculated the final gravity to be 1.015. This might be due to the high alcohol content and the effervescence. The level of carbonation is pleasant and a touch higher than most North American craft beers that I have drinking lately. ---- Drinkability. Except for Belgian witbier, I usually only want a single Belgian beer per session. Augustijn Ale, so far, is the exception. I think I enjoyed the particular balance of flavors that this beer imparts. I found myself craving another glass immediately upon finishing the first glass. I find this to be a much more drinkable Belgian without losing any of the Belgian beer qualities.

Belgian dorara con densa schiuma pannosa. Al naso sentori di lievito tipico delle belgian. In bocca gradebole gusto fruttato e floreale. Bilanciata molto bene con finale acidulo.
