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.

33cl bottle from In de Vrede Shop - a glorious looking pour, the one consistency with this stable, this one a misty orange. Very appealing nose, got some spicy banana in there, a bit of orangey citrus too. Taste has a little tang, again citrusy this time lemons come through. It’s very nice, but not a patch on its two big brothers.

Pullo @ 2Be, Brugge. Kaatuu lasiin kullankeltaisena ja kirkkaana, noin 2 sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Tuoksussa on perinteiseen belgiblonden tyyliin yrttisyyttä, hiivaisuutta, pippuria ja raikasta sitruunaa. Maussa yrttisyys ja mausteisuus jatkuu, hedelmäisyyttä ja sitruunankuorta on myös joukossa. Suutuntuma on hiilihappoinen ja suht raikas, hiiva tuo täyteläisyyttä. Monimuotoinen blonde, joka on kuin tripel hieman raikkaampana.

Speko (220) - DENMARK - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle 0,33. Pours clear yellow with large white head, good retention. Aroma of hay, flowers, yeast, grain, a bit dusty. Taste of flowers, hay, some malts, yeast, cereal and lasting bitterness in the aftertaste. Lively carbonation, medium body.

pendi (29) - POLAND - SEP 22, 2016
Świetne piwo, bardzo dobrze zbalansowane, ułożone - zwłaszcza, że pite niemal rok po terminie. Piękna piana, złocista barwa, nieco za duże nagazowanie.

Wonderful aromas of flowers, light yeast and lightly fruity. Lovely taste similar scent. Good bitterness that fills the mouth for a long time. Good beer but becoming more bitter when it gets warmer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

luttonm (4618) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle in Seattle, generously delivered by Alberto earlier this year. Lacing foam, light grainy straw color. Light honey grain aroma. Pale, bitter and dry. Some honey sweetness with crusty bread. Solid, clean beer. But not exceptional. As with the 12, I just wish I could have this whenever I wanted: it’s a real, honest drinker. So nice.

Big thanks to Matt for sharing this one. Hazy golden pour. Slightly toasted malts, like a light, crusty bread. Especially on the nose. Matt put this well: It’s not outstanding, but I can’t find fault with it, and I so wish I could drink this all the time.

bigda83 (838) - Jamestown, New York, USA - SEP 9, 2016
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a fluffy white head and lots of dark yeast particles from cellaring. Aromas of some citrus, floral, clove, banana. Flavor follows the nose with lemon, floral, hay, grass, slight clove and banana. Light body, slick texture, lively carbonation, dry finish.

dinkle50 (1364) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Clear golden pour with loads of visible carbonation bubbling to the top. Single finger fluffy white head. Aroma is flowery and light with hints of bubblegum. Very yeast forward. Light bodied with tons of carbonation. Light and flowery taste, hints of cereal and grain along with flowery hops and a slight peppery bite. Finish is yeast forward. Highly quaff able.

Inoven (290) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2016
Flesje gekregen met verjaardag en thuis gedronken. Goudgeel, licht troebel bier met stevige witte schuimkraag. Weinig aroma. Ietsje fruitig. Smaak van citrusvruchten en hop. Nasmaak is iets bitter.

Dark blond with white and foamy head. Nose: herbal, alcohol at first, followed by slitly ester. Taste: light sweet fruit (apricot) at first, followed by a sharp and persistent bitterness. Light body. High carbonation. Enjoyable and refreshing.
