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.

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

At In de Vrede. Medium golden. Gorgeous frothy lasting white head. Moderate bitterness. Earthy hops. Smooth medium body. Not overcarbonated as with other Belgian brews. Perfect balance and mouthfeel. Absolutely excellent. Exceeded my expectations.

Light and crisp, surprisingly earthy. A little bitter. Lighter than many Belgium beers.

Westvleteren Blonde. Excelente patersbier/single/enkel dessa lendária cervejaria belga. Rótulo bem difícil de conseguir, já que todo mundo corre atrás da cultuada XII. Cor dourada, com turbidez dentro do estilo, creme de boa formação. Aroma frutado, lembrando frutas amarelas. Na boca, carbonatação bem presente, entregando uma breja equilibradissima, com dulçor controlado e amargor bem evidente. Talvez seja uma das trapistas mais lupuladas que já tomei. Notas terrosas, herbáceas. Final seco, altíssima drinkability. Enfim, uma Breja para se contemplar mesmo. Complexidade e sutileza se blendam nos 5.8% de álcool, perceptíveis somente no final do gole. Uma pérola esquecida dessa respeitada cervejaria belga. Agradeço aqui o sograo por ter trazido esse presentasso de viagem. Cheers! 4.75/5 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle poured and split at Tom’s. Cloudy golden yellow pour. Straw like aroma. Flavor is dry for the most part, lemon partial. Consistent yeast character. Dry leather and yeast finish. Very fun beer to finally try, but for me, it’s more of a standard belgian ale, opposed to something that stands out like expected. Can’t complain though, standard belgians are good.
