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.

My first from these monks. Clever monks. Pours a tantalizing orangey colour with a very nice tight foam. Bready aromas with some fruitiness. Great mouthfeel- pears, flowers, more breadiness. Super clean and focused. Scarily drinkable. Another nice treat from Jurgen.

Nische (1225) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2015
Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a frothy white head. Aroma like a typical belgian ale with citrus, light hops and a bit of yeast. Tastes like lemon, yeast and spice. Light and refreshing.

Trappist monks from the Catsberg monastery in France founded the St Sixtus monastery in 1831. In 1838, brewing began at Westvleteren. The blonde with the green cup is probably the best beer I ever tasted. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330cc bottle. Pours pale blonde and slightly hazy with nice white foamy head. A bit of citrus, herb, yeast, wet straw, malt and biscuit. Very belgian, perfectly balanced. A great belgian blonde and strait forward brew, without complexity but very wel crafted.
