Pale gold colour; complex nose of dried fruit, malt and spices; full bodied with balanced palate, dried fruit flvaours and a bitter finish.
Classic Belgian Abbey Beer style known as the Burgundoes of Belgium . Affligem uses only whole leaf hop flowers (no extracts) and is 100% natural.
Belgian yeast aromas waft up from the glass, pulling coriander, black pepper, and clove in the nose; sweet, bready malts and slightly grassy, perfumy hops thicken the bouquet.
Balanced with flavours of citrus, spice and malt, this blond abbey ale is medium-bodied with creamy mousse. With a touch of hops on the finish, it is excellent with tapas.
