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.

Bottle from trade, thanks Mathieu! Pours cloudy yellow gold with a clingy white head. Aroma of yeast, wheat, banana and spice. Flavor follows nose, plenty of yeast with a bit of spice in the finish. Nicely balanced.

aleigator (180) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 22, 2014
Big white head, pale yellow hazy color. Refreshing, yeast, grass, sugar, a bit funky. Hints of spice, especially clove. Sweet, refreshing, hay and yeast adding up well with the spices, hints of honey. Very well balanced, perfect fitting carbonation, which leads to a smooth, fresh mouthfeel. Clove is big in this, without being too present on the tastebuds. Results in a warm, yeast supportedpleasant finish.

Dark fruits on the nose. Quite sweet tasting, typical yeast flavours and some spice. Enjoyed it, was easy to drink and flavoursome.

Another great westy beer. Bready, biscuit heavy, with some appa joose, grass, and white bread. Lightly sweet with some light noble hop bite. Good beer.

freretoc (573) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 17, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 33cl, une couleur blonde très chouette et une mousse intense, petite odeur de fer (capsule ?) au nez, puis attaque en bouche sur le houblon noble, décevant

A little old bottle. Stumble upon it in the summer of 2013. Bottle reads 13.09.13 and this is the best before date i thinck. I’m guessing it was bottled a year before. Clear yellow nice looking color. Taste of yeast and spices. Must try this one more time fresh.

Bottle cap numbers 21.03.14 graciously sent along in trade from Orson0368! Great excuse to break out the trappist glass! Pour has a wheat color with a thick coating of off white head that settled down to a pillow on the surface. Aroma has pale malts, mild sweet fruit, Belgian yeast, and a hint of spices. Mouth feel is light and there is plenty of carbonation. Flavor Has a very light pale malt, trappist yeast, mild herbal hops, and grains. The beer is gentle overall but has all the characteristics of a well made trappist beer. Dialed right down to a super session level.

Golden color, hazy, generous white head (fine foam), aroma of malt and hops, medium bodied. It starts with malt. Then, the hops and the bitterness appears. Longish bitter finish.

Apple juice and malts on the aroma, sweet fruity Belgian esters very complex and moderately sweet. Balanced finish
