Notes: Affligem beers originate from the Belgian abbey founded in 1074. The citrus and tropical fruit notes followed by a malty softness and hoppy character combine to make Affligem Blonde a beautifully smooth beer with a lightly bitter finish.

I ad my first Affligem at a sidewalk cafe in Paris. This beer proved to be pretty ubiquitous for Paris. It is an excellent beer to drink frequently. Bright, refreshing, not as heavy as so many blondes can be. Aromas of tropical fruits pop out occasionally.

The first time I tried this beer, it felt stronger than expected. After trying again and again, I find it a very well balanced beer.

Nice golden color with a decent head, with middle retention.

Aroma is great. Very perfumed beer, a bit on the sweet side. Hints of banana and Clove. The smell of alcohol Is also present.

The taste Is similar to the smell. First you feel the sweetness. Hints of clove and also the alcohol is present.

The bitter aftertaste is pretty smooth and enjoyable.

Overall, a very nice belgian blond ale. Feels like the standard to me. And available for a great price in the supermarket (about 1 dollar). So i guess i will buy it regularly.

Cerveza con una buena cabeza espumosa pero que desaparece rápidamente. Aroma a malta y miel. En boca es ligeramente amarga pero se siente la levadura y el azúcar.

From notes 7/12/12: Pours opaque golden orange with 3 fingers of moderately lasting, billowy, white head that recedes to a dense lingering surface cap leaving behind scattered strings of wispy lace. Aroma is Belgian yeast spice and fruity esters of apple, pear and dried apricots, bubblegum, lemon, coriander and pepper. Taste is bread, slightly sweet, heavy fruity esters of apple, pear, apricot, banana, clove, honey and peppery spice. Minor hops hints and thin bitterness in the finish. The bitterness becomes slightly more intense in the dry, fruity, rapidly diminishing aftertaste. Flavorful and complex!
