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.

Marduk (3348) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 28, 2015
330ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga). Clear amber color. Medium size, thick white head, stays. Fruity, bit of dead yeast, grassy, faint citrus in aroma. Fruity, malty, bit yeasty taste. Sweetish fruity malty aftertaste. Nice one.

Dark yellow color, lots of carbonation. Small white head. Bit hoppy, fruity taste but nothing exceptional. Standard blond beer without anything more, decent but nothing special.

danielyabu (1339) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - FEB 13, 2015
huge rocky creamy white head. excellent lacing. mostly lasting. hazy dark brownish-yellow body. aroma: moderate malty, caramel, slight hints of butter. if: moderate sweet. ff: light sweet acidic bitter; long duration. palate: light medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation, light alcoholic finish. Dulçor maltado, lembrando também caramelo. Acidez beirando o azedume estranho surgida no final do gole aparece como grave defeito. Amargor gredoso. O grave defeito talvez se deva ao fato de ter vencido um dia atrás. Mesmo sem este, a cerveja não seria nada de mais. Álcool aparece no final do gole, sem sobrepor-se a nenhum sabor.5 s

Bright clear gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and semi dry with a mild crispness. Light pale malts, trace of paper. Light and sweetish esters. Light spice. Trace of fruits before a spicy dry finish. Okay.

Cerveza de color naranja con una cabeza pequeña de color beige. Aroma afrutado con notas e alcohol. Sabor dulce a malta con toque de especias, cerveza con mucho cuerpo a levadura y con un final afrutado. Cerveza bastante buena.

Fles. Ziet er schitterend uit: donkeroranje, ietwat troebel, ruime schuimkraag die het glas mooi volgt, kuiltje in het midden. Perfect. Aroma's: winterse kruiden, stoofpeer, gedroogde abrikoos, hint van marsepein, wat gist (oud belegen tot oude kaas). Zeepsopachtige geur komt ook door. Lekker. Hartige zoet en zure smaak. Zoet doet denken aan amandelspijs, speculaas. Zuur is abrikoos, zuur van amandelspijs, schil van mandarijn. Amandelspijs in afdronk, hint van kersen. Heel weinig mis mee, past wel beter in de koude maanden.
