Additional information:

The abbey of Affligem is situated about 20 km to the West of Brussels and it is considered to be the most impressive Benedictine Abbey in Belgium. The brewing history of the abbey dates back to as far as 1129, and it has survived some turbulent periods in history. But currently, the Affligem beer is not brewed at the abbey any more. Since 1970, it is being brewed under license at the nearby brewery De Smedt in Opwijk. Besides this blond beer, there are several other Afligem beers. The two best known ones are Affligem Double, a dark beer with about the same alcohol volume and Affligem Tripel, a stronger blond beer.

All beers are shipped in professional, DHL-approved, triple-walled cardboard boxes, where all bottles are separated from each other to prevent them from hitting against each other during transport
First of all, you should bear in mind that during transport the bottles might have been thrown around quite a bit and that it’s not a good idea to drink them immediately. We advise you to let the bottles rest in an upright position in a dark and cool place for at least 48 hours. This will allow the yeast to sink to the bottom of the bottle again, and it will also prevent an outburst of foam when you open them. Beers are best kept in an upright position (to make sure the yeast residue remains at the bottom) and in a dark and cool a cool place. (The ideal temperature is 10-12°C (50-55°F) and it is also important the temperature remains as stable as possible.) It is best to drink all beers before the expiry date mentioned on the bottle.  Some brewers, however, mention the bottling date rather than the expiry date on their bottles.
