Beer Review: Affligem Blonde Ale

Comments: This is a Belgian Trappist Ale style beer and a pretty good one. Jacob Wirth’s paired it with their asparagus ravioli. My son paired it with his head. That that didn’t spill on the baby tasted quite good, refreshing and spicy, although the aftertaste was a tad bitter to my tastes. The beer pours out golden with a thick white head and leaves a signature Brussels Lace along the side. A nice beer for a summer’s day.
