Hazy pale golden color, thick creamy stable white head, recedes only slowly but thick layer remains, good lacing; aroma wheat, yeast, fruity (peach, banana), citrus; taste moderate bitter, light sweet; medium body, oily to watery texture, average carbonation; finish lingering dry bitter, herbal notes. Very pleasant pale ale.

Alengrin (2324) - BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2014
The ’refterbier’ or ’enkel’ from the Westmalle monks, made for their own use inside the abbey and only sold to the outside world in very limited quantities and only on Fridays; used to lack a label and had all the information only on the cap, like the Westvleteren ales, but since the limited sales at the abbey have begun, a beige label has been added. Loose but stable, off-white head, peach blonde colour perhaps a tad lighter than the tripel, cloudy with deposit. Fruity and malty aroma of pear, red apple, pineapple, grains, mild herbal hoppiness, yeast; fruity taste, light sweetishness, soft and fluffy, bready maltiness in the middle, a bit grainy, thinnish body, soft herbal hop bitterness in the finish, long. Everyone I know who tasted this, comes to the same conclusion: this is a great session blonde, a kind of ’little’ version of the great Tripel as it were, with a whole lot of taste and character for a beer of only 4% ABV. It’s a shame this isn’t commercialized more broadly...

Ik ken dit biertje nog niet zo heel lang. Heb er mezelf een tijd geleden een bak van aangeschaft, nog geen seconde spijt van gehad. Westmalle is een half uur rijden, en als deze bak soldaat is, haal ik gelijk een nieuwe. Hij moet zeker onderdoen voor zijn grote broer, genaamd tripel. Maar dit is een biertje dat aan iedereen gedegusteerd kan worden. Voor dezelfde prijs verkopen ze je ook een bak blonde leffe, maar blonde leffe is zelfs geen schim van een ambachtelijk bier als deze. Voor zij die op vrijdagvoormiddag in de buurt van westmalle weten te geraken of er geregeld passeren, zeker langsgaan.

330ml bottle from Belgian Beer Factory. Pours hazy gold with a patch of bubbly creamy head in the middle of the glass. Taste is nicely sweet sessionable Belgian blond with a hint of spice and light fruitiness. Has a familiar Westmalle yeastiness to it.

Bottle @ Oud Arsenaal Antwerpen. Yellow hazy ogre shine. Very carbonated, lots of yeast aroma’s: white bread, dough. Bitter taste, long finish. Refreshing!

Spijtig genoeg is dit een typische trappist die voor de paters zelf bestemd is zoals de orval groen enzo, met weinig alcohol maar ook weinig smaak aan.

Tried this in Westmalle in 2014 with Kent, Nick, and Erol. Light and very crisp. Great malty body.
