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 0.33 l, Drink Hala, Wrocław, Poland.
Złote, mętne piwo z obfitą, puszystą i trwałą pianą oraz świeżym, słodowym, owocowym, belgijskim aromatem. W smaku łagodne, orzeźwiające, lekko biszkoptowe z owocowymi nutami i łagodną goryczką na finiszu.

Goudgeel heerlijk doordrinkbaar bier. Lekker bitter met een hele lange afdronk. Triple-achtig. Een van de beste blondbieren.

altonbrownd (3963) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Dec 22, 2006 Bottle at home. Another wonderful experience. Very light and sweet. Much less dense in flavour and texture than its darker brethren. Least favourite of the 3 Westies. But, absolutely nothing to complain about.

33cl bottle at home. Clear golden with a medium white head with low retention. Light to medium body with ditto carbonation. Pretty sweet with some subtle bitter tones. Caramel, yeast, malts, citrus and herbs. An ok blond, but nothing spectacular.

Utrecht (3) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2015 does not count
One of my favorites blond beers. Westvleteren lives up to the hype, even with the blond delight. Creamy yellow body with lemon aroma and taste. Light bitterness, citrus, earthy, slightly sweet finish. Good for when you’re slightly thirsty and/or with warmer weather. Still have some at home for the summer.

Bottle thanks to Dr. Owl during RBWG Lobby Share. Pours a cloudy yellow with small frothy off white head. The aroma is floral, wheat, yeast, dough. Medium mouth with nice funk, lemon, dough, light sweetness, really enjoyed this one.
