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.

Big thanks to Matt for sharing this one. Hazy golden pour. Slightly toasted malts, like a light, crusty bread. Especially on the nose. Matt put this well: It’s not outstanding, but I can’t find fault with it, and I so wish I could drink this all the time.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a fluffy white head and lots of dark yeast particles from cellaring. Aromas of some citrus, floral, clove, banana. Flavor follows the nose with lemon, floral, hay, grass, slight clove and banana. Light body, slick texture, lively carbonation, dry finish.

dinkle50 (1366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Clear golden pour with loads of visible carbonation bubbling to the top. Single finger fluffy white head. Aroma is flowery and light with hints of bubblegum. Very yeast forward. Light bodied with tons of carbonation. Light and flowery taste, hints of cereal and grain along with flowery hops and a slight peppery bite. Finish is yeast forward. Highly quaff able.

Inoven (353) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2016
Flesje gekregen met verjaardag en thuis gedronken. Goudgeel, licht troebel bier met stevige witte schuimkraag. Weinig aroma. Ietsje fruitig. Smaak van citrusvruchten en hop. Nasmaak is iets bitter.

Dark blond with white and foamy head. Nose: herbal, alcohol at first, followed by slitly ester. Taste: light sweet fruit (apricot) at first, followed by a sharp and persistent bitterness. Light body. High carbonation. Enjoyable and refreshing.

Lele (433) - Padova, ITALY - AUG 25, 2016
ASPETTO: biondo carico, abbastanza torbida. Schiuma bianca, fine, abbondante e decisamente persistente. AROMA: speziato, erbaceo, leggero vino bianco. GUSTO: inizia leggermente fruttata, per poi evolvere in un amaro abbastanza deciso che permane nel lungo e stretto retrogusto. Il tutto accompagnato da un delicato floreale. Scivola benissimo e disseta. Carbonizzazione elevata, corpo leggero.

Amarelo palha escuro, média turbidez, espuma branca de boa formação e média persistência. Aroma bastante adocicado, doce de leite, banana madura. Médio dulçor e baixo amargor. Corpo leve média carbonatação. Final diminui um pouco o dulçor e incrementa levemente o amargor, média persistência, paladar aveludado.

Mooie trappistenbier. Persoonlijk had ik hogere verwachtingen bij dit bier. Kwaliteit komt niet in de buurt van de prijs.

Coeno (12) - Roermond, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2016
happy with the privilege to drink this beer. I thought it would be highly overated, it’s not a full body taste, but has a lot of fine aroma’s with a good combination.I won’t buy it again because of the price.
