Affligem blonde est une parfaite introduction aux bires blondes dabbaye, avec toutes les leons du genre sur la couleur, la mousse, le ptillant, la levure, le houblonnage, le ct malt etc. etc. Donc Desmedt fait un coup de matre en introduction la triple qui est un vritable chef doeuvre intemporel. Nous prenons donc ici une sorte de hors doeuvre, qui introduit toutes les qualits de son ane la triple. En notice dtiquette, il est prcis: versez lentement. On le fait donc, on regarde le col se former son aise et tout fait correctement. Blanc, pais, et crmeux en haut. La couleur est un blond fonc dor, une robe intense, nous dit le brasseur. La clart est lgrement trouble. Les bulles montent par centaines trs fines en une fontaine centre dans le verre de la maison bien entendu (cest un minimum syndical...). Les armes nous conduisent dans le monde de la vraie blonde, cest--dire les champs de bl lt aprs lorage... Le volume est plus soyeux que liquide, mais on est pris en fait par la fracheur de la 1re bouche, qui est marque par le houblon, nettement, avec toutefois un caractre gnreux et quelques pointes de fruits mrs en arrire-bouche. La 2me est dune grande douceur, avec un fondu sur les crales, et une petite pointe de citron. La 3me est sur le pain folie, la fleur de camomille, lananas et une fine pointe de kirsch. La longueur est trs fondue, mais toujours frache. La levure est gnreuse, la fois douce et sale. Lalcool est parfait pour une blonde de premier niveau, et pour maintenir le niveau de fracheur. La finale nous apporte quelques nuances de vin moelleux, mais que lon aurait frapp pour le boire frais, et donc de fruits blancs macrs plutt. Une trs belle bire, qui est un vritable professeur vous introduisant lart de la brasserie, en particulier celle dabbaye. Un talent dabbaye pur. Un classique.

Pours a rich orange with a thick white head and lots of white sediment floating around in the beer itself. This beer is probably one of the tastiest looking beers Ive ever laid eyes on. It has a rich, malty aroma with a nice balance of hops and a slightly citrus hop note way in the back creating a very balanced and, most importantly, unique aroma that is neither too weak nor a veritable copycat of every other beer. The taste is, likewise, of a rich malt with a definite earthiness that reminds me of lentils. It has just enough sweetness to do the palate justice without being so sweet that it would ruin the taste of the malt. It also has a very yeasty aftertaste that mingles well with the flavour of the beer.

Top class belgian ale from the Netherlands! Diverse hoppy and aromatic but balanced taste. Suitable hoppiness with a belgian ale style makes a great combination.

Very tasty spiced beer with plenty of esters. Medium bodies with a good balance of hop bitterness. Nice dark golden color with a thick creamy white head. Watch the alcohol it will sneak up on you.
