3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
A torrent of bubbles in a fuzzy medium gold ale. A large head that took up half the glass. Bright white in color and diminished as a tiny plateau in the glass. Dusty smell. Smells slightly sour and dusty. Some indescribable fruit an peppery bitterness. Leaves your tongue and cheeks feeling tingly. The palate definately doesn’t feel the way it looks. Prickly but not very heavily carbonated. The palatte let it down some but I’d definitely have this daily if it was widely available. The lacing was a beautiful firey pattern too.

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.

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.

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.

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

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
