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.

Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso riconosce il luppolo. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello è di schiuma cremosa e persistente, a bollicine medie. L’aspetto del liquido è velato. Il perlage ha bollicine fini. La carbonazione è abbondante, persistente ed insistita. Il colore è giallo dorato. Il corpo è strutturato ma duttile. Il dolce è medio, mentre l’amaro è leggero. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono da favola perché è una birra elegante. Il finale è lungo, secco e pulito. Il retrogusto è intenso. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di crosta di pane, cereali, agrumi, erbe aromatiche e fiori.

A 330ml bottle with a minimum sell-by date of 29th October 2016 and poured into a Chimay goblet glass. It poured a hazy golden orange colour with a small amount of sediment and a nice puffy two finger white head with good retention and leaves great lacing. Actually, despite the sediment, this looks amazing. Aromas are bready, clove and banana with a hint of peppery spice and apple pie. Tastes of strong breadiness but with clove and banana sweetness and a hint of bubblegum. Creamy, medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, wow… Actually this surprised me as its often overshadowed by the 12 and even 8, but I really enjoyed this. As a Belgian Pale Ale, it seems to be one of the best of its style and has great balance, very refreshing and easy to drink.

Bardzo dobre piwo w stylu Belgian Ale. Moim zdaniem są jednak lepsze. Very good beer in Belgian-style ale. In my opinion, however, they are better.

goud blond met een blijvende witte kop, alle smaken een lekkere bitterhop , citrusfruit en bloem boeket, die met elke zacht bubbel elkaar afwisselen door eenvoud en kracht een heuse sensatie zo niet godswonder
