Additional information:

The Benedictine abbey of Affligem is a very impressive building located in the center of Belgium, and its monks have been brewing some of Belgium’s best abbey beers since the early 12th Century. The legend goes that the Affligem Tripel ale was invented while the monks were fasting. During that 40 day-period before Easter they were allowed to drink only one beer per day. Since their regular beers Affligem Blond and Affligem Double ‘only’ had an alcohol content of 6.8%, they decided to brew something stronger to get them through that period of fasting.

Since 1970, the Affligem beers are no longer brewed at the brewery, but at brewery De Smedt in Opwijk. The brewing still takes places according to the monks’ original recipes.

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.
