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.

Heerlijk blond bier met een fruitige nasmaak. Helaas ook hier dat de beschikbaarheid te laag is.

Bottle at in de verde A - pours a hazy golden straw color with a 1.5 finger eggshell head that leaves lots of foamy lacing on the way down. S- wheat, straw, faint hints of light fruit T- yeasty, peach, large wheat presence finished out with a light hop bitterness. M- medium/light bodied and effervescent D- subtle, easy to drink, not at all overbearing. A great blonde.

ABT_S54 (149) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2014
33cl bottle served in a Delirium Tremens Glass. Pours a pale blonde colour with quite good carbonation. Aroma and taste to me seems a little underwhelming with no particular highlights. Quite flowery and nicely balanced but there are far better blondes available at a far more reasonable cost (in the UK). Would rather have Kasteel or Maredsous.

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.
