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.

ABT_S54 (145) - 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.

aleigator (200) - 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.

Gramoit (353) - AUSTRALIA - APR 18, 2014
Dark fruits on the nose. Quite sweet tasting, typical yeast flavours and some spice. Enjoyed it, was easy to drink and flavoursome.

Reynolds314 (2296) - Connecticut, USA - APR 17, 2014
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.

kingstoni (1500) - FINLAND - APR 17, 2014
Bottle. Hazy copper color with a medium thick head. Some lacing. Medium aroma of apricot and ripe mandarin with notes of yeast and wheat. Medium dry taste with some sourness. Some bitterness in finish. Medium body. Balanced package.

Renobob (619) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 17, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Belle couleur blonde. Bière pas trop typée belge. Houblons bien équilibrés mais pas assez de corps à mon goût.

freretoc (634) - 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.
