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.

Blonde dorée trouble-opaque, sédiments en suspension, effervescence moyenne, col blanc fin. Plutôt maltée en entrée, son amertume houblonnée se dévoile tout en douceur avec du zeste de citron et quelques notes de bananes. Supérieure mais tout de même surestimée...

Bottle from Beer Mania. A though beer, not too much to pick up on, if you dig hard you get some dough, wheat, solvent, grass, dandelion and detergent.

Hazy yellow in color, one of the best Belgium blondes I have ever had looking forward to the 8 and 12. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Yellow colour, very hazy with yeasts sediment. Frothy texture head. Aroma is typical for Belgian wit’s - spices, citrus, wheat and yeasts. Full body, very refreshing. It reminds me witbier, lot of fruits, wheat, gently hops, yeasty. Perfect balanced! Exceptional!

Typical Belgian spicy aroma. Cloudy caramel color. Really well balanced. Lots of taste. One of the best blonds I have tasted.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes goldenes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, malzig süß, leicht würzig. Geschmack leicht hefig, fruchtig malzig, Gewürze, blumig.

Less special then the '12. As a blond it's not bad but I've tasted better ones. But still in my top 3 blond beers. Still a soft taste for the tongue and pours gold with a white head which doesn't stays that long. Nice herb taste which stays long in your mouth.

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Mikkeller Bottle Shop, Köpenhamn (100 DKK). Fruktig och frisk, syrlig och torr, jäst, örter, något tunn i smaken. Avslutningen är lång, torr och ganska besk.

danlo (1075) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2014
330ml bottle. Hazy golden colour, frothy white foam head that leaves lots of lacing and aroma of spice, lemon, banana, yeast. Taste is peppery earthy, citrus rind, spice, yeasty with slight fruity floral, lingering bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, drying bitter finish.
