Affligem Blond

The wife was going to get home late tonight. Two hours of bachelordom. What to do? What to do? I know…break out the drum kit, blast the music, and drum to some Rock Band.

I know I’ve talked about Rock Band and my drumming before, but I can’t recall if I’ve ever posted pictures of my RB drum kit. And yes, it is friggin awesome. The drums are an ION kit. The pedal is a Rock Pedal. Tonight’s set was all over the board – Bon Jovi, Hinder, Guns and Roses, Rise Against, Kenny Rogers, and Vesuvius (the fake band from the flick The Rocker).

All while rocking I was sucking down this Affligem Blond. I have a few of these in my fridge thanks to a friend who left them after last week’s poker game. I drank a couple last night, and man do they hit the spot.

We’ve been having some unusually warm weather for May (mid 90s), and the blond is just perfect. It pours an orangish-golden color.

Check out the awesome head; the stuff is television-commercial-worthy.

The aroma is of cloves and spices. Excellent smell, but dwarfed by the flavor.

The brew is light, yet full flavored. Bitter orange peel and coriander dominate. I really can’t get enough of the combination of flavors! As you can tell, this one gets very high marks from me. Go buy some.

I’m now off to finish grilling dinner – yellow and green squash and red peppers. Yum!
