4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearence: Golden semi-cloudy color. Big head, white, some rocky and very lasting.
Aroma: dominated for the pale malts, the yeast and the hops with herbal smells and lightly citric. Notes of bubble gum, grass, grapefruits and flowers of chamomile.
Flavor: pale malts from the start, some ephemeral, with quickly progress of the hops with herbal notes, medium dryness, also lasting and with a "elegant" touch. Fruity reminiscences like grapefruits, unripe pineapple and some of eucalyptus and ruta. The yeast has a harmony presence.
Palate: medium body, silky texture and low carbonation.
Remarks: with the "elegance, harmony and balance" characteristics of the Westy, nice-delicate hoppiness, without high complexity but it exists. Very good blond beer.

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.

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.

Very nice beer. Refreshing on a hot day, good taste and after taste, very smooth. A firm head that lasts. Not the best of the Westvleterens but very nice.

Birra bionda di colore paglierino chiaro; colpisce subito il predominante ma delicatissimo profumo di fiori, avvolgente e delicato.
Schiuma persistente di media durata, gusto complesso che varia al palato e che dona un retrogusto di fiori e di limone.
Una birra di altissimo livello per veri intenditori che racchiude in se la sintesi della perfezione brassicola,

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy golden, some floating sediment. Stable, rocky, white head. Fruity, malty aroma. Grain and hints of yeast. Flavour has malt, notes of banana and candy. Hints of barnyard in the long nose. Light and easily drinkable, not overly complex but well balanced. Creamy and fluffy mouthfeel with good bitter and dry bite. Good one.

Bronze body with a poofy head. Lovely aroma evinces fresh grains, accompanied by easygoing esters. The body drinks of easy, clean graininess--as if the grains are fresh off the mill. Touches of Belgian esters impart a complementary aspect and depth.

Clear light golden with a medium head. Light fruity aroma. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Very good balanced session beer, but 12 an 8 are the real gems from Weatvleteren

330ml bottle at home from trade with Erzengel, many thanks. Bottle past the BB-date. light yellow light hazy color. medium big white head. smells fruity, yeasty, acidic, light barnyard, some sweetness, honey notes, light metallic. medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes quite fruity, some sweetness, citric, acidic, oranges, peach, light soapy, lemongrass. finishes dry and with a nice light citric sour note. great beer, drinks very nice, I liked the taste a lot better than the smell, possibly because the beer is past its prime, but still drinks very nice and refreshing. reminds me a bit of a saison.
