3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Abbey beer for the Delhaize supermarkets since 1994. Iím a bit surprised to find it has its own entry here, since at least in those days, this was clearly an alias of Affligem Blond; not sure if this is still the case, though. Rating based on old notes; peach blonde beer with medium, rather thick head and malty sweet character with sourish hints, some peachy esters, sweet spicy accents, iron, warming alcohol and herbal hops in the finish. Iíll buy another bottle soon for a re-rating, just to find out if this is still Affligem Blond. Oh, and by the way: stylewise, this is a Belgian ale, not a golden ale, which is an Anglo-Saxon beer style...

Fun fact of the day ;
The bottle contains a rather long description . Roughly said, it sais that the beer will turn more fuzzy with the ínatural í yeast in it ... Newsflash - this is not unique to your beer . If thats all you have to say as positive for you beer , it makes me fearfull ....
pours clear ( I seperated yeast LIKE A PRO ) Good white head fades rather fast .
Smell is same old sweetness, with a grainy and slightly bitter back ( Sigh, Iím bored already )
Taste is sweet, slightly grainy but mostly sugar . Yeasty frontnote ( reminds a lot of affligem, or is that just a play of mind ? ) Overcarbonated, as to be expected ...
Its not bad , but if you told me its affligem , id believe you . If you told me its one of the other 1000 beers that taste almost exactly alike , I believe you too ...
perhaps one day they turn out all to be aliases ???? Hahaha

33cl bottle. Itís an "ok" beer, but nothing special. Yes, I would drink it more ofte if it was easier to get around here, but then again, the are more of these kinds of beers..

Bottle 33cl. Nice pour, amber honey color with creamy head. On the drier side for a blond. Tastes of orange, thyme, and hops. Nice.

Voor een bier van de Delhaize viel dit echt heel goed mee. Een deftig blond bier.
