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.

Moolesen (312) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2015
Evening where we drink the 3 Westvletsren after each other. 1/3. Bottle 33cl. Hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma reminds me of a wheat beer. A bit boring taste where distant rye is present. Short finish

rdb84 (246) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2015
Honey colored pour with beautiful lasting foam head, gentle carbonation, some sediment. Aroma is well balanced, fresh, and slightly sour: fresh grain, hay, lime, lemon zest, yeast. Taste is fresh, yeasty (a bit like a Saison), grains and lemon return. Development is light bitter, lemon, slightly sour. Mouthfeel is ’round’. Aftertaste is a bit dry and bitter.

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.

altonbrownd (3752) - 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.
