COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Westvleteren Blond is the basic beer for the monks’ own consumption, since 1999, when the former 6° dark ale (red cap) was finally discarded, after the 4° had already gone that path.

Bygers (741) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle 0,33l. Pourd a hazy yellow coloured beer with a thick white head. Aroma of light yeast and hop aroma, some spice, pear and tropical fruit. A spicy, yeasty taste, loads of fruit and spice and malt. The finish has a mild tartness. Dry mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy yellow with long lasting white head. I like how one of the other users put it, "Nice, but not world changing"

Hazy yellow colour, white foam. Medium carbonation. Light malty aroma with notes of grasses, light citrussy. Hoppy with bitter and dry finish. Easy drinkable. Very good Belgian ale.

Sask89 (417) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUL 31, 2014
Enjoyed at In de Vrede. Pours a hazy bright yellow colour with a frothy/creamy white head that dissipates. Aroma is of banana, citrus fruit, esters, and spice. Taste is a little bitter in the finish but not really sweet, quite nice. Lighter body, thinner mouth feel and softer carbonation. Great blonde, really enjoyable.

Holmen1 (2375) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2014
Flaske delt med importør og skibsrederen, juli-14: højt skum som daler høflig til gardinformat. Snill aroma av citrus, litt sukker og belgisk gjær (og krydderet fra den). Fin munnfylde med citrustoner som akkompagnerer krydder og humle på en meget balansert måte. Men jeg skjønner ikke all den uforbeholdne jubelen omkring denne, der finnes mange belgiske øl som gir like stor drikkeopplevelse.

Holmen2 (787) - NORWAY - JUL 30, 2014
Pale golden. Dense and persistent white head and lacing. Aroma of Czech pilsner hops, white candy sugar, grass and hay. Similar taste. Well-balanced with high drinkability. Very good, but not spectacular
